    I (we) had a PCR test done a few days ago. Waiting for the results. No symptoms but my wife was exposed twice last week.

    Water polo is a tough game, my high school in PV had a pool on campus and my buddy was on the team, and we'd jump in after XC practice sometimes and get our a** handed to us. Its know where as easy as it looks.

    Today would have been a good day for fenders. I didn’t want to be caught out in a downpour 25 miles from home, so I just walked over to Irvine Park and got caught in a downpour 3 miles from home on foot…but I did encounter Tim Panttaja rocking his classic Switchback jersey, which was a cool blast from the past.

    ... because my bike is in the shop. Fork & shock rebuild and hopefully fix the low speed compression knob on my fork. Fix a broken spoke, true the wheel, full brake bleed & service and whatever else they find ... because they always find something. :laugh:

    Quoting my own post ... I dropped it off Thursday at BikeCo. They were closed Friday through Sunday and the bike was ready end of day Monday. I was expecting 2-3 weeks.

    No add on's, other than they told me my rear axle was shot. Intense was sold out, so I jumped on the highly rated Robert Axle Project. Lighter rear axle and my first DHR II? I will be faster than ever. Bring your Stravas.

    Guilty on both counts. But I have other obsessions that I am equally inept at... I'll Strava my ski/snowboard runs for ya.

    Fair enough. It only took me 6 years of riding to finally take out J on Barham Ridge (27.5 FTW). I probably do not have 6 years of snow sports left in me at my age ..

    ... perhaps.

    Well cuzz my flex seal roof leak fix a few days ago worked but didn't work and apparently it just moved the leak from one spot to several others.:thumbsdown: A trip to Home Depot for a giant 40 x 60 tarp and a bunch of rope and bricks and sandbags at 5:00 pm was in order. So I'm out there in the pouring down rain wrestling with this big ass tarp looking like a monkey f@cking a football and Nicholas was learning a new vocabulary as I was making up foul words at this point. My neighbor across the street saw what was going on and jumped right in to help and was a total lifesaver. This was a total shock as everything I've ever seen him work on takes forever and never gets finished but he damn sure knew what to do in a hurry tonight and I owe him big time. No more leaks for now and I'm too drunk to care if it does start leaking again...:confused:

    Not riding Peas & Carrots today, but finally sourced a coilshock for it. Going to pick that up this afternoon & dig/maintain the gnarlier upper stuff @ weed patch over the next couple of days.

    Edit: couldn’t get photo of recent work to post (need coffee) so video of a recent send instead.

    The good news is the 200 bucks I spent on the tarp and supplies worked and I’m sure saved me thousands in water damage. It flat out poured all night long and it’s still getting it on.

    That sucks, but I can relate... We were under the blue tarps for close to 4 months. No cold beer or any refrigeration for the first month... :laugh: We eventually gave up trying to find supplies. My wife's brother in NY loaded up a van with windows, doors, shingles, nails, lumber, etc... As all building permits were suspended for a year, it all came in handy.

    One of the more interesting roof covers I saw... Never did learn the story, but I'm pretty sure this one ended up condemned. There was a screen room there before the storm...

    Because there's 3" of actual slush covering everything outside and it's still coming. I-5 is closed, local roads are closed...not sure if I could get anywhere if I wanted to.

    Cuzz... Shipping documents were delivered with no bicycle. Somewhere between Jaya Abadi Cargo, Indonesia and DHL the 70-lb wooden crate containing my bike disappeared. Fukking thieves. Let's see what the shop says. Fuk me running, what a PITA.
