For a while, our road trip to Oregon did not seem it would ever happen — it was postponed at least three times. Then we flip-flopped between tandem touring and mountain biking. I have always liked our road trip setup where we fit all our bikes and gear INSIDE the CR-V, but I didn't think we …more…

I've been working very hard lately.  I normally try not to work long hours; after all, 50% of the household is already workaholic, so I need to balance it out. But last couple of days, I stayed up late and got up early. I've gotta say, debugging an unpredictable race condition in the program is addictive. …more…

The weekend started on Friday afternoon. Made a last minute decision that I would ride over the hill to meet up with Mr. Mud so we could ride up B-OO-B (Bohlman – On Orbit – Bohlman) together. I had to carry our tent poles in a backpack hoping to get them fixed at Mel Cotton after the ride. …more…

Here we are, in Pescadero. …more…

He does not know it; nonetheless, it's true.
See, last week on my solo ride, I cut the ride short after W. Alpine, OLH, Pescadero, and Stage, because I "was feeling a bit lonely and missed company." Somebody up there must have heard me and sent me this message in the form of a forwarded email to a …more…

I signed on to Plus 3 Network more than a year ago, but last time I tried, it had issues with my GPS, so I hadn't tried again … until today. And it worked seamlessly this time. Whoohoo.
I elected Breast Cancer Foundation as the cause to support when I signed up. It's a good cause. …more…

We went sight seeing.
   The moment we woke up, we could see the blue sky through the skylight in our bedroom. It was going to be a nice day! In this bright sunshine and under the clear sky, we took in the beautiful view of the pine ridges on the Hastings Grade to Pescadero, the rolling …more…
