That looks like a tricky descent indeed. Almost better on MTB, or at least Gravel bike.

have had no power at the house for 2days now. PG&E says "cause of outage appears to be weather related."
uhm...thanks. hopefully gets restored today.

went out and grabbed some dinner and warmth at local taiwanese food spot.
forgot to take a picture of the car not melting in the rain, but did get these food shots.

Going to be in the single digits this weekend, going to put a few hundred miles on my car.

You dont know what fear is until you drive an Elise in an ice storm. Probably would have been more entertaining in a sprite as the Elise handled it like a champ.

Anyway, the GT3 is too soft, who wants to sell me an Exige S260. 09.

What a great day. Took out the RS and drove with a few friends. Proceeded to incur MASSIVE. depreciation by both adding miles AND drove it in the wet/light rain. What was I thinking?!?

Then met a buddy and took him out for his first mountain bike ride. We climbed up the Marin Headlands and dropped down into Tennessee Valley. I think he's hooked.
