Are you getting it? Really getting it?

I hope yinzers are enjoying the increased quality of the images on the blog. I have been doing what I must to make things more "visually stimulating" around here. Although Tyler "Tool Bag" Benedict has proven that you can use your tongue to control your iPhone (oh-so-smart phone) with gloves one...



"Can you hear me talking douchey now?"

I've had great success using my much more hygienic nose part. Many of the images from the ride I went on last Sunday were taken with my nose. I guess there's always the option to "sew a bit of conductive thread to the tip of your (my) glove," but that would require a trip to the robot store and parting ways with a Jackson.

If I seem off lately, it's because things at work have changed, and I'm still adjusting. More work, more money, more responsibility, more hours... the American dream. Trying to plan a "season" right now, but I'm lacking focus at the moment. I did jump on the bandwagon for PMBAR yesterday, as if there was any doubt that I was going back. If you want in, you'd better grab a partner and get registered since it's 50% sold-out only two days into registration. It's the only race I've done eight years in a row, if that gives you a clue as to how awesome an event it is.

I'm also signed up for ORAMM (the most important race on the international cycling calendar), 6 Hours of Warrior Creek (the most funnest 6 hours of anything in the world), and in a moment of semi-lucid/semi-buzzed typing, I registered The Wonderboy and I for another New Belgium Urban Assault. I'll be signing up for the Icycle XC and Night DH some time over the weekend...

And of course, there's the Pisgah 111 (permit pending).

Good Lord. Except for ORAMM, that's all happening before June. Perhaps I've been planning a season without even knowing it. It's too late to start training now.

Looking forward to 2013 already (even if it may be canceled due to Armageddon II).
