Would anyone want to take in a small dog?  I found him last night.  He's been starved and abused, but hasn't barked once and doesn't bite.  Looks like a mix with some Jack Russell in him.  The owner…Continue

Bicycle Camping 2015! 01 at Illinois State Beach Park

April 9, 2015 at 4pm to April 14, 2015 at 4pm
Let's gather our gear and go camping! Illinois State Beach Park is close enough to the city that almost anyone can come along. You can ride the Metra to Zion for $7.25(Plus $7.25 for the return), or a weekend pass for $7. After that the site is only about two miles. Theres a grocery store about a mile away. Kenosha is about 26m round trip. After work on Thursday, I'll take the Metra up and settle in. Feel free to camp there or another site. On the weekend a trip to Kenosha will happen.See More

Awesome are you going to the NorthSide Critical Mass this Friday?

It's like I'm psychic or something. The letters are starting to come fast and furiously, with big chunks of letters being added in one fell swoop! "Woodpecker." [snicker]

Are you going to keep on adding letters to your last name?

Here's a link to the page with my link to the bike registry chain, and my photo of it. The link now goes to "product not found," and a search of their e-store looks like they're out of the bike lock business. You might want to contact them directly to see where it went.

Any word on the bar night this month? Does Julie always schedule that? I moved Critical Lass this month so I could be ready for drinking on the 15th, dammit.

Hope you didn't stay out on the sidewalk at the bar all night!  I ended up riding the entire way back to Evanston--made it in about a half hour or so.  See you on another ride!
