So much for getting a ride in while down here. I just got up from a 2.5hr nap!

Kyle and I went to Tybee Island for breakfast (Breakfast Club) and then exploring. My breakfast consisted of a 2 egg omelet with homemade sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, Monterey Jack cheese, grits/toast. I was stuffed afterwards.

We then walked down to the beach and he took me around to where he and his friends usually go when they are there. Less touristy and good for kite surfing. The beach is very nice...nothing at all like the beaches at Wrightsville, smooth and broken shell free. Saw a couple crabs and he even picked up a few baby hermit crabs.

I finally put my feet into the sand & ocean after 5+ years of being gone. It was nice, but it didn't make me want to come back next week.

From there, we went to the Tybee Island lighthouse and explored around. Great views from the top. Then off to Fort Pulaski, touring it and watching a demonstration of the musket. Finally finished around 1pm and he was hungry...I was not so much (and still not). Went to a little place called the Crab Shack for lunch and ordered a sampler platter: rock crab, crab legs, crawfish, sausage, shrimp, mussels, potatoes. It was good, but the deal was - I just couldn't go out to eat at the Italian restaurant tonight - no way I was going to be able to eat any more food!!!

I'm still stuffed, at 6pm. I will have to eat like a rabbit next week and get the bike out to the industrial park for 4-5 6 mile laps each day to lose the weight I've probably gained over the last 3 days. Heck, I don't know if I will be hungry in the morning.

Headed home in the morning and will be glad to get home. It has been really nice to get away, but I'm kinda homesick and miss my pets.

Mornin', MV.

Had a great time at the range yesterday. My shooting is slowly improving, and I'm handlng my .45's recoil better all the time. My date was kind enough to pick up some bulk ammo for me from his local Wallyworld (mine doesn't carry it), so I'm now set for a while as far as getting my pistol broken in and getting out with plenty of ammo for ladies' night.

Oh, heavens, this could become a real addiction.

And, cherry on top of the ice cream last night is that his AR shoots incredibly accurately right out of the box!

Happy Columbus Day! What better way to celebrate failure than to cook up a turkey and all the trimmings cuz it's also Canadian Thanksgiving Day, aka practice Thanksgiving! Did that over the weekend and I think I'm still suffering from post-turkey drowsiness. Hope no one notices me nodding off at my desk.

Oooh, I forgot that today is practice Turkey Day! Might have to go pick up a turkey breast and break out my dressing and sweet potato recipes to celebrate.

Happy Turkey Day to Holly, wherever she is!

Hi all
I had a couple of nice rides this weekend, and made it to the gym for some upper body work yesterday. other than that it was pretty normal.

Nice! I need to get into my winter core training soon.

Still trying to figure out how to size a CX bike. I think the idea is to go one frame size down from roadbike, or is that myth?

I would just want to make sure the boyz don't get crushed on the top bar should something happen.

My girls wouldn't be too happy under such circumstances, either.

I'm still trying to figure out the geometry of a CX bike. BB is generally higher, which makes sense, but this would seem to require a frame one size larger to get leg extension without jacking the seatpost; yet, I usually hear people say to go to a frame one size smaller for ease of flying remount.

VV...you are correct as to cx bike sizing. My BMC/Fuji are basically 52s and I went down a size for the Ridely. Speaking of, Dallas should have it built up by now.

Another 2 hr or so till home ...
