OK, I haven’t been posting here that much. So here’s what I’ve been up to.
Gardening: been growing lots of stuff in our 4 square foot gardens, plus some other stuff just planted in the ground. It is all going well. Just gotta keep it watered, as temps have already hit 100 degrees here.
Took the new speed board and various skateboards to Central Texas earlier this month to skate with a friend. The Comet worked like a charm on the hills. Sweetness.
Reconfigured the cockpit of my road bike. Now it has mountain bike bars, bar ends, and a nice Nitto Dirt-drop stem to make it nice and comfy. Been riding it all over. Love it. I guess I’m not a drop bar kind of guy. I still have the drop bars, and I suspect that if I ever do a really long road ride I might use them. But for now I find the flat bars better for riding around town, and the bar ends give me a nice hand position for distances.
My wife and I are preparing to begin a weekly podcast related to sustainability issues, and in particular modifying suburban lifestyles to be more self-sufficient, sustainable, etc. Stay tuned.
