    I can see me on the bike but not the track. As long as everyone else can see it, I know where we were (surprisingly).

    I used another host on the road pic, now I've changed the track pic over.
    Can you see it now? :ear

    From Rt. 11 up to Highlands was fantastic; light traffic, predictable curves, great pavement, it was a really nice ride. I had never ridden that stretch before.

    You can see the lower falls that feed into Bad Creek reservoir from here.

    I've been carrying a Kershaw folding knife for several years, it's been one of the best knives I've owned. I realized a while back that my riding pants would hook the pocket clip and cause the knife to fall down my pants leg, so after an early close call on this trip, I put the knife away for safe keeping.

    I spent the last four days looking for it and yesterday I started to consider replacements, as I was pretty sure it was lost for good.

    This morning I had an errant hair that needed trimming, so I got out my shaving kit where I keep my small scissors. When I went to put the scissors back, guess what was staring me in the face?

    Here's your second one after fooling with it in Picassa a little bit. Neither of our cameras have big enough sensors to overcome the big shadow in the lower left.
