Life after work and the trips of a lifetime

"We are judged by what we finish, not by what we start." - Anonymous

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, your body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "Woo hoo! What a ride!..attributed in this form to either Maxine Cartoon or anon

well I had to have a day off on day 5 as day 4 shattered me gearing is too unfriendly.  I'm borrowing one of the staff's compact cranks until i can find a bike shop that has one to sell me.  the steepness is less of an issue than the length of the hills/mountains.

First day wet wet wet then sunny.

I'm writing this in an internet shop while my computer is being no pix and can't access my facebook page as I can't answer their security questions!  I must have put down a false birth date to prevent identity theft and can't recall what I put!

Am having fun!
