    I know, I know, I'm almost afraid to use those first three words in the same sentence anymore. But plans gotta be made!

    Anyone who is planning new tires before Ouray please let me know when you want to do it. Anytime is fine with me and the shop. I am leaving on the 15th or 16th of July and will not be back till the 1st of August but folks can change tires without me being there, I would just need to let my house sitters know that some hoodlums will be around. Also, if you want to send tires to Poonville berforehand, that is cool too.

    There will be a wrenchin session on the weekend of July 10-11, for pre-Ouray bike prep which might be a good time to change tires or just come by. Bring your own steak this time. :nod

    Crazy summer so far - I can't seem to get any miles on my bike (work sucks)
    I might come down for a wrenching session after you get back from Ouray.
