    MCN (both this american one and the terrific British one) is also available for the iPad, both single issue and subscription. I now have all my subscriptions digital and they're terrific.

    There is a photo with a certain Beloved Blue Oil Burner in it on page 44 of this months Cycle World Magazine. (They dedicated 6 pages to the Cannon Ball Centennial ride).

    Craziness.

    NIce.  I mean your comments on the video page - I haven't watched the presentation.

    Hopefully this means there will, in fact, be many more cross-country trips for you!  Wouldn't mind seeing your ugly face out this way again. 

    Yeah, I feel a older, too.  Thanks for reminding me to suck it up and make more riding plans.  As a matter of fact, this coming long weekend I'll be doing a three day ride around northern Washington.  Remember the friendly town of Winthrop?  (The one without the taxis.)

    Was Winthrop where we got your battery and I got tires and a tank bag?

    That was Spokane.  Winthrop is the tiny "old west" town with raised wooden sidewalks.  That's where we had that awesome campsite by the river. 

    Hey, didn't mean to threadjack.  I'll start a new thread to pick it up after my upcoming weekend ride.

    Ah, that's right. I was there with Yun in 2013 as well. I had forgotten about the taxi's there. That's why we walked into town, if I remember correctly.
