Congrats on your retirement!
What's the difference between a fixie and a single speed?

Single speed still has the freewheel mechanism for coasting, fixie is truly fixed - if the wheels are moving, so are the pedals. True fixed-gear probably wouldn't work out very well for me riding down the hills in Athens

It will work well as long as you don't mind looking like a cartoon character with blurry legs!

You'll learn to control your speed with your legs. Just don't unclip.
BTW for fixed mountain biking Lake Hope is the easiest place to learn, its so smooth and flowy with not very large hills.

All State....aren`t they the ones that refused to insure motorcyclists for years?

Being an insurance guy myself, I can say that dealing with them are seldom pleasurable but the AG and insurance department consumer complaint divisions can provide some help before going straight off to an attorney. Keep in mind that it is normally easier to deal with "your" insurer as they have a contactual relationship with you that is missing when attempting to deal with a 3rd party insurer. Read your policy and be aware of your rights and obligations under the policy and don't accept verbal blowoffs by adjusters and make sure to obtain any denial of coverage in writing, including the specific exclusion or provision for denial they are relying on.

That is the extent of my insurance wisdom, now Luke, you putting on a "New Years" ride this year?

I'd roll the dice and call them, worst they could say is no. Might get your check a lot faster and you don't have to deal with lawyers and courts.
^ This. And the publicity might save your job or help you find a new one.

Wasn't planning on it. a bit colder this year than it was last year. I don't know why but I've not been in a riding mood recently.

Is the New Year's Eve lunch still on at the Buckeye Lake pizza cottage at noon?
I'm still unsure if I will be working on Monday. Hell not sure if I will be employed next week for that matter
