I am officially jealous of Geri.....

(Any guesses what this is?)

Just my luck. As soon as I start feeling the urge to ride...It starts to rain and I get a cold.
Today was eventful to say the least. I was able to hammer out all the repairs for today, start a big one for tomorrow (Complete overhaul including new parts), Specialized calls to tell us that they are hooking Geri up with a new frame (Huge upgrade, pictures tomorrow) and I made it the entire day without coughing. Yay.
I am really lucky to have a kick ass job, a million friends (I think that is a literal number, everywhere I go I know someone) and a clean house. I have been noticing that I am happier than I have been in awhile. Oh well...I 'm sure things will change.

The project is 95% complete! It's a great thing being able to see your floor.

Whenever I turn on the iPod or iTunes lately I go directly to this band. I probably will play it so often that I get sick of it (like TV on the radio, etc. DB puts that band on repeat all day. ugh.). Have any guesses who it is?

Wednesday's night ride was a success! The 6 of us explored Lake Hodges and found that the "upper" trails are still closed and the Highland Valley Trail is closed as well. It still was a blast. 

This photo was taken during the day but, you can tell the trails are coming back.

 This weekend Jensifer and I are cruising up to Vail Lake for another 12 Hours of Temecula. This is the cold one. I have to remember to bring every piece of warm clothing I own. Tommy T is also racing this one. It will be his first solo 12 hour race. Luckily he has the mental power, we'll see if he has the leg power. Good luck Tommy!

Can You guess where this is on the trail? Looks different huh....

Now that Lake Hodges has reopened I want to start my night ride up again! Normal loop although the first ride will probably be slow and investigative. Supposedly it looks like moonscape. I hope you all try and make it out. The past rides were a lot of fun for everyone. Some of you I know are training for some endurance races and this would be a great way to train for them.

Hope to see you all out there!


(Some of you will be receiving an email soon about the ride, if you are not on my list email me at probikesupport at gmail dot com.)

Just when things were looking up....
Reality smacks me in the face and says "not so fast". Thursday I was working in the shop when someone came in and said, those in famous words, "Does anybody own the black Subaru?". Ugh. I start to sweat, my heartbeat starts to race and I feel sick. My car is important in my life. It's not as important as when I worked in the OC but, still pretty important.
At least the guy came in right? He could have left and I would have never known there was a giant dent in my fender....Yuck. The positives are that the dent isn't blocking the wheel, so I can drive it. The headlight isn't cracked and the guy is going to take care of it. I got a couple estimates and recommendations. My mechanic Niko at Charlie's Foreign Car recommended Fender Mender in Encinitas. They seem to get a lot of business. Several dealer tech's were dropping off cars while I was there, good sign.
So I have that going for me. My first Mac class is next Sunday. I am learning a lot just playing with the computer but, I want to find out the in's and out's of the OS.
That's it for now. I am going on week 5 without cable. I have made a considerable dent in the cleaning of my house. Maybe I can invite people over soon.....

If you don't already know, I am officially a member of the Mac community. I bought my first Mac on Sunday after my laptop finally took a dirt nap. I purchased the Macbook which I am completely stoked with. It's going to take me awhile to relearn computing but, I will take that sacrifice.
I also now have a better camera in my paws. So pictures should be streaming more regularly.
