How much longer? don't want to know

Mama Wuleur turned 40 and made one simple request; hike from Sarratoga Gap to Waddell Beach 30.5 miles . She gave us plenty of time to prep (1 week), so I felt good with my twenty minuet "walk" session I did to prepare for our 10 hour journey. Her crew was made up of family, school buddies, yoga peeps, and bad-ass moms from TPCS.

parts are parts...

We confirmed the nutrition content in a packet of peanut M&M's is the same as your garden variety "healthy" sports nutrition bar. Greg LeMond has been right all these years claiming you might as well eat candy considering what's inside those "special" bars. We've been experimenting with dates and almonds, apples with cinnamon, baked sweet potatoes with salt and smoked salmon.

rise from the ashes...

I'm usually sitting on that curb enjoying a treat on a fantastic bike ride, but my day job unfortunately had me engaged otherwise today. Pescadero, we are so sorry for your loss today and send you our love.

silver is the new silver

I went shopping in the Steel Wul lounge and rummaged up a few new bits for myTim Neenan California alpine project bike. Anyone have a Nitto 65 post?

 1992 Nevada City Classic

April 1991 the Holcomb corporation paid me 100 bucks to ride a pennyfarthing around for the grand opening of Palapas restaurant and Village Cycle Sport.

Now they're just messing with us!

Olive and I fell over laughing on our way to Orchard Supply Hardware when we spied the latest poster offering the "New! Polar Pizza" from Baskin Robbins. Their gimmick is "hand me a slice". Since this is a family blog, I can't even mention the ingredients or how many grams of sugar are in this weapon of mass destruction. We are considering reporting them to the Hague for crimes against humanity . It might as well be sponsored by Toujeo® Insuline.

south county treats...

Every now and again I have to visit my favorite south county general store to see what goodies are hiding among the shelves. Today I snagged the largest pear I've ever seen and a packet of Hits cookies for AC as little reminder of southern Italy.

Americans need not fear ISIS...

however, we should all be scared shitless of  the "New! Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches" with 171 grams of sugar from BR. I can smell the ketons from here.

The good boy bad boy list...

 The Sears company has reached out to me with a gentle reminder that I've been in the meat grinder at work for the last 19 months and evidently unable to get away to make a single purchase. I appreciate their concern for my financial well being, but I will keep funding Olive's college fund and continuing to pay off the note on Steel Wul headquarters. As for my whopping Sears credit line of $3,612, it will be dropped to what ever the Sears police feel is necessary for this 22 year cardholder with a zero balance unless they have stocked their shelves at the Capitola store with plenty of these.
