2009 Pinarello Prince Carbon

Just looking thru some of the pics from the California experience.
Aaron and I made a stop at the Nytro shop (very nice). Just looking
thru the large selection of pretty decent bikes and found this little
53cm Pomarello Prince. Cute little thing. Oh, I zoomed in on the
price tag just in case you might be interested in buying one for
yourself and one for your spouse. You better act fast because this
one is priced to move since its last years model. Who says staying
fit is cheap.

Volvo 850 T-5

So long good friend. Yes, she is officially sold. My nieghbor took it to work one day and apparently had three different buyers for it. I believe it caused some kind of conflict between employee and boss. Yes, the nieghbor received a nice finders fee.

It would not be a true good-bye without a certain quote,

"Well, this is a piece of shit"

Xenon Headlights

Boy these suckers are bright. On the way home from California I probably got flashed by oncoming cars a couple times. People apparently thought that I had my high beams on. Yesterday M had an encounter with some gal on the side of the highway, apparently discussing BMW self leveling xenon headlights. Yes, this gal was set on having M pull over so she could lay into her (M did have a friend in the car). I guess the gal was very irritated that M was driving around with her high beams on, untill M clicked the lever and showed her what the high beams really look like. Man, I wish I could have been there to see it.

The Stig Unveiled

When the elusive Stig lifted his iconic helmet he was revealed as none other than Formula 1 ace Michael Schumacher.

I don't know how long everyone knew this but I just found out about it tonight.

Home sweet home

Finally made it home.

North and South

From sunny southern California to nasty slick northern California in
a few hours. Good thing were in a X3 instead of a M3. I have been a
little sideways a few times.

Late night radio

Really not sure what we were listening to but we were. By the way it's
late and I'm getting tired. We have about 130 miles left tonight.

Ferrari F430

Not bad.

In and out burgers

Good eats.

Sunny San diego

Went for a run along the coast in the rain. Then when we were done the
sun came out.
View from Randy and Marys condo (nice).
Oh yea, just bought M's new rig. Happy Birthday to me.

Cockpit shot

Anders this ones for you. Ka ka, ka ka?

Ok were back on plane number three.

"I have good news and bad news"

That's what the pilot said as everyone was sitting in the plane ready
to take off. Good news is that we are going to make it to San Diego.
Bad news, "not on this plane". Mechanical problems. We will be
boarding another plane in about 20 minutes.

X3 here we come

Just leaving Pasco headed towards San Diego, Ca. Aaron and I are
headed down to pick up the latest addition to the BMW family.

Riding the escape from Alcatraz triathlon right now. Some nice hills.
So far a 15% grade.

Sweet Sweet Nuts

M stocked me up on my favorite snacks last night. All the different
flavors are good but Blue Diamond just came out with the salt and
vinegar, which are now my favorite. We cannot find that flavor very
often so when she does she buys them all.
It's the small things that make people happy.

The Spa is now open

Thanks to Karen and Scott at Pool Care Products for fixing my pump and
getting me what I needed to start up this old piece of $&@/ hot tub.
There are still a few little issues to work out but it works. Actually
the heater works really well, myself and the kids got in last night
and it was a little to warm (106). M would not let the kids stay in
for more than a couple minutes, something about not wanting to cook
thier little brains. Its kinda weird because she let me stay in for
hours. So adjusted the temp and tried it again this morning, much
