E'nuff Packing! Let's Ride! (so I can have a beer soon)
Well the rain is finally out of here and it's supposed to be nice the next 4 or 5 days. Sweet! Best news is from the what I read at accuweather.com, Champion, PA didn't get all that much rain. So 2 days of sun and warm breezes should make things pretty good.
Stopped at Tom's tonight for Lantern, Pop-Up Tent and Folding Table. He's the man letting my borrow this stuff. Thanks! Did all of my clothes packing; Team kit, SmartWool socks (THE BEST!), shoes, etc. At work today I topped off 4 HID batteries and have my 10W back up recharging now. Worst thing about this race is that it gets dark at like 7:50 and STAYS dark till 7 a.m. Damn! Half the freaking race in the dark and NO recharging stations, thus the onslaught of HIDs. Thanks to all my peeps for lending me the extras.
Went over some nutritional instructions with the newly christened Pit Boss- Wifey. This should be fun. Seriously, she'll do fine. Tom's coming up to help me from dusk on... the time when I need the most help and that is much appreciated. Plus Papa-M is rolling up to watch the B-man. Thanks padre!
Looks like some fast XC guys in the Solo cat. this year I gotta hope I can out last them when things get miserable over the long haul. I'm pretty pumped to get my cheeks in the saddle and get going.
Anxious to see all the local folks up there + J.B. from down in VA-Beach, Fatmarc is racing on a team and more. Should be a good time... When it's over! Look out 'cause I'm gonna be pilfering beers come 12:01 Sunday.
Busy day tomorrow: B-Man doctor's appt., work, spin for 45, put 2nd fork mount on the E., last minute shopping and the cooking of pasta of course...
My brand of choice:
Note: On the bag is says "A VERY HIGH SOURCE OF FIBER" should just say stop in Aisle 6 and grab some T.P. too while you're at it dingus.
Then all you need is a roaring boil, some "Woking" Vegetables and a 80 year old stove to provide the flame.
Have a good one. Gotta get some Zzzzzzzzz.
