Check out these pictures of the flooding in Iowa. Crazy. I'm glad I live on a hill.

750 KM

I've been keeping an unofficial log of my training for Ride for Africycle 2.0. I'm up to nearly 750km already, which is pretty cool. It's been very enjoyable so far; well, for the most part. Biking from Port Hope back to Peterborough, in a near constant ascent, with a steady headwind was not 100% enjoyable. It was rewarding to finish though.

Sponsors are welcome for the ride. You can sponsor by the kilometer, or an amount for the full 9 day, 1000km trip. Let me know if you can help.

Away From Here

David Blondel, one of my fellow Ride For Africylce 2.0 riders, and original Ride For Africycle 1.0 rider, will be taking a short break from our training schedule, to do some work. He'll be on set for the filming of a movie called Away From Here, and blogging about it all. Check it out, now and often.

Dear OSAP,

We're done. I have to end it. I can't have you around anymore. It's not you, it's me.

I know, I know... We had good times together. You were there for me when I needed you most. But, if I'm honest with myself, and with you, I've moved on. I just don't feel anything for you anymore. I'm actually a bit relieved to be saying this, but I'm quite confident that as we part ways I'll never have to see you again.

Thanks for the memories. I don't owe you anything.


[As of June 1/2008, my student loan has been paid off. One more step towards being debt free. Now all I have to do is tackle my mortgage and a few more months of car payments!]

Things that I dig, lately, in no specific order:

Cycling, soccer, Lucero, BBQ, Jesus, beer, Stanley Cup Playoff Hockey, Against Me!, Frisbee Fridays, Pints at the Pub, Taking pictures, Summer, Lost, my Home Brewery, and occasionally reading a good book (and The Good Book).
