Gone Fishin'

Well, vacation starts for me early tomorrow morning as we get up and make our annual drive east to Adirondacks and Vermont to visit Alex's family. We are staying in a couple of cabins on Friend's Lake an hour or so northwest of Saratoga Springs. Fishing every day for Bill, and some biking too.

This past week has been very busy for me, but I was able to get out and ride a bit. I learned a couple valuable lessons this week:

1. Drink lots more than I think I need when it is humid and 90 degrees. I learned this at the 80 mile mark of the Decatur Flat 50 Plus century I did last Saturday. The last 20 miles were rough.

2. When more than two people wearing "Men of Steel" jerseys show up on a club ride, be prepared to suffer (or split from the group). The 25 mile loop went by really quickly.

Hope all of you have a great 4th and a great week. I would try to post next week, but the fish are calling. And there's not much wi fi around where we're going.

Happy riding!
