March and April are prime for desert camping and hiking.  We did our share this past two months.

Any time I see flowing water I think it is the greatest thing.

32ND Street Community

Is where we live and play.
Today we had a bike summit with the City of Phoenix.

A little talk and a little ride.  We talked with our Councilman about coming bike lanes on 32nd Street from Shea to Union Hills roads.  We are looking at decreasing the number of lanes to 2 from 3 in each direction.  That would be awesome.

We had like a 5 mile ride with a full police escort – they had like 8 bike police and 5 police cars.  We felt pretty special.

A hike!

Well a backpacking overnighter anyways.

First time out since a really nice Tucson ride in November.

Last week we had white stuff on the ground.

I totally had fun driving the subie in that.

It was nice to get out.  I have had a nice time of the bike.  But I miss it dearly.  A few more moons and it will be back.

Help fix some bikes then ride some!

After an impromptu late Friday night ride with Jason, I barely got some sleep and then headed over to Scottsdale to lend some time and “used to work at a bike shop” skills to Recycleyourbicycle.  A great group of people and a just cause. They have a lot of work to do.

There were a few bikes to fix.

I even ran into an old friend Pete from my bike shop days in Scottsdale.  It was great to catch up.

This past Thursday I started to clean out my desk to make room for a bigger desk.  I think it means there is more work on the horizon.  Anyway, I found some coin.

I quickly went to a local used goods store and scored some tires for a Monstercross project.

check out the fat!

Then, later, after playing with bikes and generally nothing else all day, Der Hammah and I attended another SUB24 ride to have a fire and swap lies.

I had a great sleep in the bag.


After some biscuits and gravy and an awesome coffee, John and I pedaled our separate ways.

Then, I helped Karen move her Massage office to a new location.

THEN, I received the first massage in the new office.

A great weekend.
