    Hey Spazz! I'm glad you're coming!

    (And I believe it is technically New Mexican food - as in "red or green?" - but delicious nonetheless!)

    I'm in! Since I'll probably make it an entire 10 feet, playing cards and saving everyone else a table are things I feel I can excel in.

    Is that link on the first page still what we're using for directions? I can almost guarantee I'll get lost. I don't have a very good track record.

    Yeah. Fantastic. I am bleeding from the top of my hand from changing out the pedals on the tandem again. (DH had put speedplays on to ride with his sister, and I have to put Em pedals on.)

    Why is it I cannot ever get pedals off without hitting some chainring and injuring myself?? And with a tandem it is so unfair because there are rings on both sides!!!!

    If you were born in New Mexico, do the calories count in sopapillas?

    this is cool

    So the right side is not righty-tighty? trek-no-technical-skills-420

    Calories don't count in sopapillas.

    When you do the first 100 yards and then stop to play poker with TE gals you get credit for all the calories of the entire ride because "yeah, I coulda done it...."

    Calories don't count at any TE get together.

    Uh oh, this is getting to be like thread drift.

    Pedals on the left side crank arm are reverse threaded. Pedals on the right crank arm are righty-tighty, lefty-loosey, just like you'd expect.

    Can I make an entire meal of sopapillas? Wait a minute, I still need my green sauce. Maybe I'll just have a bowl of it. Wonder if they have green chile stew? Oh geez, can you tell I don't get enough of the real stuff?

    I remember that the posole there was excellent.

    Last year didn't almost everyone order stuffed sopapillas with green sauce? What can I say - for some reason I am cursed with a good memory for what people order at restaurants...

    I was probably the hold out. My test is always Chile Rellenos. They passed.

    Has anyone actually come up with a list of people? I'm starting to wonder if we need to send out an alert to the local clubs. Or we can just wait to see their look of terror when they see the mob.

    I know one or two things that are gonna hit Mt. Diablo...

    My butt when I forget to unclip (1st ride - 1st Arnie Johnson moment)

    My mind when I lose it upon staring up (and up and up) and wondering what the heck I'm doing there

    you all are killing me! Right here in my backyard and I am supposed to be sitting in a church for three hours!

    I didn't hear from the Catholics in the group. Do babtisms really take that long? (10am babtism, 1pm post-babtism party)

    and, I'm starting to think that this babtism will not start on time (self proclaimed late Mexican affair). Wondering if I could make it to the junction and back home in time to shower and leave my house at 9am (hour drive to the babtism). Any more thought to a 7:00am start? If we left at 7am, I could probably do it!
