It’s nothing like “Snowpocalypse” a few years ago, our low this time is only going to be something like 25, compared to 2 or 3 then, and this one will only go 3 total days, versus the 14 that one did. It’s funny though, we’re all feeling the PTSD. That thing wrecked Texas, we’re justContinue reading “We’re smack in the middle of another winter storm”

Today is “Confederate Heroes Day” in Texas
This is a holiday that is actually observed by the state. We have the day off. This remains one of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen, that in the year 2023, were taking a day off work to celebrate some people who attempted to tear the country apart 150 years ago. No one in theirContinue reading “Today is “Confederate Heroes Day” in Texas”
The year is almost over…
I’m working up a longer post for later, but for now I’m listening to “Green Grass and High Tides” by the Outlaws. This year has been truly strange, to say the least.
I genuinely don’t think it would be possible for me to have less interest in the Tour than I do this year. I don’t really know why.

I also had some problems sorting out the navigation here. I think I’ve got this handled now. When you click on the link tree on my IG it should bring you directly here, which is the Landcruiser category of my blog. Most of y’all who get here that way probably aren’t interested in my bicycles,Continue reading “Had some Landcruiser problems”

And I haven’t done a single ride. I haven’t really done a run or walk either. Gonna need to remedy this tomorrow.
The Beast of Provence -Ventoux
I love when the Tour hits Mont Ventoux. As long as I can remember it’s just such an iconic stage. I can remember seeing photos of Eddie powering up it when I was a kid, as well as Lance, and Froome and Contador. chapeau to Wout van Aert for his victory today. It’s just aContinue reading “The Beast of Provence -Ventoux”

Thoughts on training…
I am in need of a reset as to my training methodology. A reset taking into count my kind of new reality. The ‘ol leg is telling me we may never be the same again. I do believe that while it may not be the same, it will be as good or better in aContinue reading “Thoughts on training…”
