Ski season is here…
Every year it seems that ski season sneaks up on me and I’m less than motivated. Yesterday’s excellent conditions late in the day really lit my fire. I’ll be out there in an hour and a half….for an hour and a half….tops.
This comes from Capt. Andy…
“EUGENE, Ore. — An Oregon man has had an Awesome name change.
Douglas Allen Smith Jr. says he changed his name to Captain Awesome last month because he was inspired by the nickname of a character on the NBC television show “Chuck” — Dr. Devon “Captain Awesome” Woodcomb.
The unemployed Eugene cabinet installer says he found it funny Woodcomb’s father gave him that nickname because a “poor nickname builds good character.”
The former Mr. Smith says he faced a Lane County judge who questioned his seriousness. The judge that granted the request made him swear he wasn’t changing his name for fraudulent reasons.
Awesome says that judge also allowed him to sign his name as a right arrow, a smiley face and a left arrow.
He says his bank, however, has refused to accept the signature because it could be forged too easily.”
I’d like to title this next picture….All I had was a 12 pack of budweiser and a case of duct tape…I finished them both…
I’d like to close with a bicycle related post. One of the lost and stolen children has come back home.
Subject: Hot Coco
So I was browsing craiglist looking for bike parts the other day, and came across an ad that said “Coconino single speed mountain bike- 55.00″ I thought it was total bull shit, but went and checked out the bike, and sure enough… It is probably stolen at some point, has a bad spray paint job, seized up seat post, crappy components, blown SR fork, but it is certainly a a Coconino. I am going to strip it, send Garro an email, see if he will repaint it, and slap on some new wheels and go from there. pretty good score I think.
And the kicker is that when I called Garro and asked him if he could repaint it, he said it was stolen from (Name Omitted) back in 2006, so I called the douchebag who I bought it from, who happened to move here from Flag in 07, and told him I was going to turn him into the po-po if I didn’t get my money back. So he gave it back to me, and I am shipping the bike back to Patrick. So all is right in the world…
Ha ha. And Kudos to Steve Garro for remembering that frame and the owner. Good on ya son!
Oooh, have to post this from Steve….The Kaibab plateau. That area between Hurricane utah and Flagtopia is also on of my favorites in the world.
Oh, and in hot news…if you kinda wanna look like me…you can order a version of the evil kit HERE.
