    Sorry to hear about the knee cap.. Do you know yet if it will require a surgical repair? I assume it would but I'm no doctor...

    Perhaps this winter will be the "polar" opposite of last winter and you won't miss a many of those nice unseasonably warm riding days.. Personally I could use a shitty slushy cold wet winter to catch up on all my bike maintenance..

    I didn't see which of you was driving the truck when you showed up but hopefully gpj530 was driving on the way home!?! Heal up well!

    Ummmm.. guess I should have been more insistent that you use my spare set of knee/shin guards. :D Sorry about the injury, hope it heels quickly, surgery?

    Glad to hear it was not worse, not that a broken knee is good. Heal soon! Hope we can meet up and ride again soon!

    Never though of that...
    I do use them to check the guy behind me while moving...
    but on the loop I guess they will most likely get broken at some point...

    So for anyone who was at the Halloween CnR and saw Rob's stove/knows of the biolite stove...
    I was cruising eBay and came across this. I especially like the "federal green energy initiatives" bit. Who the f**k would bid on this you might ask? My co-worker thought it was so funny he's covering the shipping cost. I can guarantee you they'll get a glowing review and maybe some photos of other uses for the fuel rods. I'm really hoping this guy's like "Shit! I actually have to find some sticks"

    Nice. Fags for sale on the internet.

    Anyway, I'd like to take this oppourtunity to announce the next Camp-n-Ride. December 28, 29 & 30th.

    Please accept this invitation to join me camping on the last weekend of the year. Of course, this will be weather permitting. My cut off is if the daytime temps don't get into the very high 30s or low 40s. If we have above freezing daytime temps, ill be camping and riding. I know some of you are just crazy enough to join me, and I look forward to it.
