So Lucky, what are you wearing right now?

" Now I have to manage not to brake any more bike or body parts for another month..."

Did I get your attention?

Just wandered into the Women's Lounge (wouldn't Ladies Lounge roll off the tongue better?) and saw a couple familiar handles (yours, *rt*'s) and have been laughing myself silly over the FAQ and stuff.

I haven't been at MTBR much at all on any forum lately; have you broken something major since your road recked rist? Or wroad wrecked wrist?

I haven't ridden much, either, but I did take up wheel building.

See attached (I hope) photos.

Say it with me now, "Laydeez Loungeah"....

Ken

ps: what the heck is "temption"--you're gonna hafta lead me, cause I can't find it in my dicktionary.

That's been like that for *how* long, and no one told me? They say your real friends are the ones who will tell you your slip is showing. I misspelled "break," too. ;^P

The doggy wheel is great! Mebee if you made one a little bigger, you could ride your bike in it in the winter. Although you really don't need that because you still ride outdoors in -50F weather. Brrrrrrrr!

Are those your dog's pups? Looks like a lot of husky in them.

The wroad wrecked wrist needed another surgery last November. It took forever and a day to heal. I finally got back on a road bike in May, and the mtbike in June or July. But, the doc says it's all done - yea!

I saw your new bike-hauler pics over on Passion. How many gallons to the mile does that baby get?

The Border Collie is ours.......

"Are those your dog's pups? Looks like a lot of husky in them."

but the puppies are indeed huskies and belong to Iditarod racer (and 3 time wiener) Jeff King. I helped Jeff with his sled construction for this year's race (which you can drive sitting down from amidships or on the runners like regular) and once he found out I could meld metals I had pretty steady employment implementing his idears.

By the way, the sit down sled was pretty comfy--so comfy he went to sleep and FELL OFF and had to install a seat belt at the next checkpoint. I don't know how much time that cost him, but he finished second by a couple hours.....

Bummer about your wrist taking so long to mend, but hurray for the final result, eh? Musta put your blossoming BMX career on hold too.

The new truck was built by a friend and neighbor specifically to drive the Denali Highway and Park Road to his mining claims in Kantishna and on Valdez Creek. He commuted every year from Washington in it, and the Denali Highway was so rutted in those days that he wore through the steel on the bottom of the rear differential from dragging bottom so much.

Have fun in Dakota, and as long as you're that far from home you may as well swing on up here!

Ken

ps: how's the stem coat rack coming along? Did I already see it and forget?

Ah. I was wondering how a border collie could have such pure-husky-looking pups. :^)

BMX is probably out for the year, though I might do a little when I get back from vacation. I don't want to risk hurting myself before that.

I'm going to think about a trip to AK next summer. I was hoping for this summer, but the wrist postponed all kinds of plans. The coat rack was supposed to be a winter project, but I was in a cast all winter and could barely feed myself, much less tackle art projects. The parts are all still hanging around.
