Car free(sort of) for a month

Yesterday started my car free experiment. For the next month I plan on using a bike to go anywhere I don't absolutely have to drive to. For trips to the grocery store, Sam's, and stuff like that I'll have drive. All other trips(work, sisters,and such) I'll be riding. With gas prices the way they are and Asheville being as ummmmm..compact as it is.it just makes more sense to commute. Amanda and I are aslo gonna try and not eat out for the month as well. Hopefully by the end of the month we'll see a pretty signifigant savings increase. I know I will as far as gas goes. Hell, I'll probably save enough to finance a race with.

On the new bike front..I've decided to see if I can go Shimano free with it. The only thing I'm waffling on is the crankset. Anybody have any experience with FSA,Truvativ, or Race Face cranks? Shimano makes great stuff and I have no problem with it.I'm just doing this for shits and grins basically. Hell.....I don't know why..just seemed like a good idea at the time.:-)

Hope everybody had a good weekend.Later folks.

I'm back!!!!!

Sort of. I finally broke down and pulled out our old computer.It's slow and seeing how it uses Windows 98 as it's OS the internet connection sometimes overwhelms it, but hey, it lets me do what I need to do...sorta.Anyway,things are pretty much back to normal here. I'm finally completely over the flu and back on track riding wise. The one good thing about being sick is that it took 6 pds off me.Though with my luck that was 6 pds I needed.

Hope everybody is getting a lot of saddle time in. Yall have a good one.

Nothing new

Still no computer. Still using the library. Looks as though the Cohutta filled up before I got off my lazy ass and signed up soooooooooo..seems as though Burn will be the 1st race of the year. Cool. Anyways, nothing going on. Later folks.

...I vaguely remember this thing. It's been awhile. A nasty case of the flu that kept me pretty much flat on my back for a week and my computer crashing combined to keep me away from here. The flu is history(Thank God) but the comp issues remain. I'm using the library's internet to type this. The sad thing is...not a lot has gone on in the past few weeks. Work,sick,work, try to ride..the usual. I did get to see Henry Rollins a little over a week ago. He did his spoken word thing and it was a blast. Laughed a lot, learned a few new things and had a great time. Hopefully the computer will be up and running in the next few days and I can catch up a little better. Hope everybody is having a great week. Later folks.

Oh..got some new pics to post but can't do it here.
