    101 to the 170 to the 5 to the 118 to the 210...ok...five freeways. I googled the other routes and they are longer...and I don't feel like getting up any earlier. Using only three freeways adds 10 minutes because of the screwing around you have to do at Griffith Park.


    And the bad thing about my office is that we have our own barrista (no need for Starbucks) and I had a cinnamon bun latte at 3pm today. Real smart...I can't get to sleep now. :becca

    I am out :(

    No one was around when I came home from work to help me load the bike up so I had to leave it down in SD.

    I'm not brave enough to try and load it by myself

    Yep...18.0 and 25 minutes...I'm slow...55 to 60mph. Silly eh? But this is LA...everything is 20 to 30 minutes away. When I was working at the old law firm it was 30 minutes to go 4 miles.

    You got learn how to do it sooner or later, or if you can find a ditch or steep hill just back the truck up to it with the tall gate down and ride it on in, we'll help you unload it and that's the hard part.
