Quote of the month, if not the year.

commuterDude (muttered elsewhere on the Internets):

My daily scan of regional Craiglist feed, looking for touring/rando frames, came across advert from a college town which begins with "need to sell bike for gas money..." Um, dude...why don't you sell the CAR for bike spares, and ride it???

The man has a point. It feels like March outside right now. We've had perhaps two days that actually felt like winter this season.

I'm still alive. No, I haven't ridden more than a handful of times in the past month. It's complicated. I wish I could take 'dude's advice. Having a wife that practically lives in a hospital and/or requires constant care at the drop of a hat (up to and including zipping home over the lunch break a few times per week) is putting a serious damper on bike commuting. Like I said, the weather's been perfect for it. Grumble.

But hey! I got to meet A Midnight Rider face to face over some coffee 2 weeks ago.

Sorry to hear your wife is still spending a lot of time at the hospital.

I haven't been riding as much lately either. Bah.

Very cool that you got to meet A Midnight Rider, was he in KC for something, or were you out in his neck of the woods, or ...?

He's a bit of a soccer fan, and a soccer coach. The NSCAA convention was in Kansas City this year, and that's when we met up.

Best wishes for you and your wife.
Hope to meet up again sometime.
