|Scene from a cooler place|
Just back from a vacation with the family to the more temperate northwest. We rode ferries. We viewed orcas in the wild. And I found that it takes twice as long to drive anywhere in northwest Washington than most other places I'm familiar with. For example, including ferry wait time and traffic, in one instance, it took us five hours to cover 119 miles. On some of the routes we were driving, the cyclists who took the ferry gave those of us driving cars a run for our money.
|Officials frown on riding up/down this ramp on the ferry|
Still tired from all the travel. Apparentely, while we were frolicking along the temperate seaside, Phoenix was hammered with an epic dust storm. We came home and found everything outside, and some things inside, covered with a fine, sandy powder. Not sorry to have missed that, though.
Also, as fate would have it, a nice old ten speed has fallen into my possession. I'll post more about it once I get it cleaned up and in good working order. Here are a few hints though.
|From a functional point of view, this appeared to work like new|
|Ah, the old 3-bolt|
Still working on getting back into the swing of things. The rhythm of the ride. Happy to be home, kind of looking forward to things getting back to normal. Get up. Go ride.
