    My brother, who lives in Wilmington, NC (ground zero for H. Florence) finally got his power on yesterday -- it went out in the wee hours Friday morning. He is fine, as is his house, just a few...

    Ugh, Crankin. I feel ya on med side effects. You were smart to detour away from the big, bad hill, if your tummy was feeling off. Can't blame you a bit!

    Thanks for the well wishes re. my NC family. I have family all over the state, from west to east, including my brother in Wilmington, which looks like ground zero for this awful storm. Fortunately,...

    I get that, Crankin, but the other objection that I have to the flu shot is that it so often only covers a small % of strains of the flu. I think last year they said it would only be effective on...

    Re. the flu shot, I refuse to get one after the last one I got (back in 2009 or so, at work, given for free to employees). I ended up in bed with chills and body...

    Yes, Saturdays are crazy here. All the folks who work during the week are out, and many with kids. We just won't do it. We have occasionally ridden on a Sunday morning, during church time, which...

    Hi Sheila,

    The only place we've camped on the gulf coast is Grayton Beach State Park, which is east of Destin. We absolutely loved it there and would highly recommend it. There are other state...

    Yeah, re. helmets, we see a lot of folks without them (even younger guys wearing fancy kits and riding road bikes much higher-end than mine) here, and of course lots of casual cyclists on hybrids and...

    NWG, enjoy your time in Florida. As you know, where I am, we have more lovely large trees and actual hills to boot, so the cycling is a little more interesting, though I wouldn't mind an ocean view!...

    We debated going out today as it was predicted to be quite stormy, but from the radar, we thought we'd be okay and could cut our usual loop short if it started looking bad. Ended up turning around a...

    Agreed, Crankin. It is too bad. Fortunately, at least in road bikes, there seems to be a good selection for we petite gals.

    Interesting, Sheila, and I do believe it. My mother was 5'4" (she's...

    Thanks for pointing that out, Sheila!

    If I were in the market for a new MTB, I'd definitely check those out. I have no desire for bigger wheels than 26" -- just call me old-school (and petite!)...

    That alligator story was all over the news here in Florida. Gave me chills, since I walk my small dog all the time here in Florida. There is a pond here in the RV park, but it is full of ducks,...

    We did our usual ride today, and it was fine, but still hot and humid. No signs of fall here yet, but that is to be expected. Actually, there...

    Glad you're healing up, Crankin, and I am with you on fat bikes. At my size (about the same as you), I am just not sure I could power one unless I had a tailwind!

    Interesting, nwg. The Sandhill Cranes here are more used to people, I guess, as we often ride RIGHT by them on the bike trail. My favorite was a pair and their one youngster (only a little smaller...
