And so the wife and kids packed up this morning and headed to Amelia Island. Marty has a business meeting there and she is taking the kids and some of our relatives to watch them play on the beach. Nice! One problem though. I can't go. Shit!! We are working the Elberton race this weekend which will be fun and all but, I'd rather be with my fam... However, my life is kick ass and I should not be complaining so I will stop it right now..Humph!!

Well, we almost ran outt the new shirts so I ordered more and they will be here today. Pretty cool that everyone seems to dig on em. I am also getting some embroidered fleeces for fall, winter and spring. Nice! Wow, that sounded like a sales pitch. I am so fing lamo..

One week back from the beach and I need another vacation. Whats up with that crap! I never stop to think that we do so much in our lives. Even most of it is good stuff it still brings stress and wears you out. Hmmm. HTFU Code red.......Right..

Gonna reubuild Waynes wheels today. We built him a supa dope set of MTB rollers and he went out and bent both of them on the same rock that several others bend their wheels on. He calls us up sick! So I said, no worries bro. We will relace them at cost. I think he liked that idea and gave us some really good beer. Nice!! I like folks that appreciate good customer service by giving us good beer.

Well, gotta roll out, eat and get to DA shop yo! I gave Hodge 2 days off so don't call me askin for him or I'll thump your skull for you and then rip your legs off on our next ride together.

Code Red out........Peace and war

Blog? Whats that?

Hey peeps. As usual I have waited to blog for a bit. Expendable is the term I guess....

Anyway, alot has transpired since my last lame ass post. Vacations, rides, etc.

Just got done with the 4 days of the GBF support. Crap! We worked out asses off and really had a good time. Lots of good racing and good beer. Yesterdays stage was held in the 8th level of hell. It was so freaking hot out there that the racers were melting by the second. Most survived and seemed to stay in a good mood.

Well, I've been running the globe this month. Hodgie and I took a moto trip up the Blue Ridge parkway to Virginia to see my pops. He was in the VA Hospital getting harrased so the govt will pay his disibility. Anywhoo, we had an awesome time and I cannot wait to do that again. We camped 3/4 of the way there in Linville on Grandfather mountain. Really nice!!

We got back and I took the wife and went to Jamacia for a week. We did absolutely nothing and it was everything I had hoped it would be. I read a few books and looked at the ocean in a drunken state for 6 days. Wow, that was some kind of nice. I have never done nothing. Its not in my nature but, I must have needed that because I feel really different. Good!!!

So we are back and I am in the bikeshop again for a while. Good thing because I like my job. Man this is the best place to work. It was nice to come back and find Hodge had taken care of everything. Imagine that!! He kicked some serious ass while I was gone and I think we made some money. Sweet, maybe I'll go on vacation again....

Sold my MTB. I can't seem to keep a mountain bike under me lately. With the supply problems that Vassago has had I end up selling my personal bike all the time. And so I have been riding the road almost exclusively for 3 months. I am really enjoying it and I have saved alot of money on gas. Been riding to work and pretty much everywhere when I don't have to haul bikes around. Nice!!

We picked up felt bikes. Pretty cool. I can't wait to get some of their 2009 offerings in the shop. They gots some kewl stuff.

Well, gotta go to work. So should you.
