granite doesn't move.

in case you were wondering . . . granite does NOT move when a human body is thrown upon it.

stacked hard into a boulder coming down from a pass (just above Star Lake, and about 2000ft above Lake Tahoe) on the Rim Trail tonight around 8:30 pm.  headlamp on, bouncing downhill on the fully rigid rig after a 10 mile climb - just washed out in the very loose decomposed granite trail.  finished the ride, but it wasn't fun.  riding lately hasn't been fun . . . probably shouldn't admit it on this blog - but maybe i really miss my riding buddies.  riding alone in the dark just isn't all that fun.

in other news - i think my single speed is trying to kill me.  and i made 2 awesome tables at work this week.  and i've been growing a beard.

needless to say, i am NOT looking forward to the Tahoe-Sierra 100 in a few weeks.  not feeling too strong on the bike, and the training regiment of, well, basically not training, going climbing and drinking beer doesn't seem to be paying off.

signing off with a shoulder wrapped in ice, beer in hand and looking for some generic ibuprofen - b

still working for the same builder - Sierra Sustainable Builders - just doing some tables for this big hotel remodel that we've been working on for months. pretty sweet remodel though. it'll be cool having some rad pieces down in the lobby.

It'll be cool finger-banging a Laotian hooker this Thursday night at Captain Pete's, but you don't hear me bragging...

i was wondering what the missing puzzle piece might be to fill my empty soul . . . then i realized -

you don't need more Kenny in your life, you just need a shot of "harden the fuck up"! seriously, do we need to mail you a set of racing ralphs??

Just fill the empty soul with Jagermeister. I've found that works like nothing else.
