Happy Thanksgiving

This is a cool rock found at Gros Morne National Park.

This morning while I was showering I had this idea to write a really deep post about what I was thankful for. At first, I wondered if I should for the sake of the blog I should be thankful for cycling-related things. I decided against that. With the world in as many crises as it is, that's in poor taste. I could get all sentimental about friends and family, but that's lame and you don't want to read about. So, I decided not to write about that stuff.

Last night, I thought I should ask the millions of loyal readers if I should buy some kind cheap fixed gear bike for the winter to wreck the bikes I have right now in the sand and salt. But in these tough economic times, that's like writing an article about getting a $400 bike fitting as if it's a perfectly acceptable idea. So, I didn't write that post.

Early this afternoon I was going to extol the virtues of mountain biking during lunch time, because I went on a lunchtime ride with these two new dudes, Bill and Cedric, around parts of The Eel. Oh, in case you're wondering, that sign didn't create any new trails. It's what has always been there. But, I'm bad at extolling.

So, uh, Happy Thanksgiving!

If you go out to the bar tonight, watch out for those college kids who are home for the week. Don't let them ruin your favorite bar!

And I was going to say I really want a Turbaconducken but then I remembered that I don't want a coronary.

Happy T-day one and all.

I guess I have a lot to be thankful. Got laid off from a job that I hated but liked the company. Went to work for another company that was great but hated the commute and I think I jumped at the job too quickly. Then the company that laid me off hired me back into another role that I really like.

I am also thankful for discovering fixed gear biking.
