I ate at my desk in a windowless building. It's 95 outside and feels like a pizza oven. I know because I just finished supervising loading the truck. aka helping.
Engineers, we're always in the way.

Maybe blow off my evening run and go sit at the new Italian place and daydream about riding my bike in a couple of weeks.
Good luck on your ride.

Mmmmmmm, you mentioned pizza...

Mmmmmmm, you mentioned Italian food...

Er, I do not even run when chased...

Lots o photos, lots o videos, lots o stories - yes...

Linger - like homeless dudes at the offramp, asking for cash with cardboard signs... Or like a stale fart...

Change my avatar - um, never...

My new Klim Badlands pants arrived today, but even the largest they make are too small... I'm probably going to just wear my old Motoport suit, since it fits and can be layered underneath with no trouble...

I was wondering just how bad the traffic is in the LA area coming up from San Diego. Probably be coming up that route in a few weeks. Been about 45 years since I've been in that part of California.
Will be following yur trip, Main thing >>>> Have Fun and don't rush it.
