Got up at six, ate some flakes, went out to the garage, pumped up the rear tire on Jamis, headed on out.

And again I forgot my Headsweat. I remember half-way to the garage. But once I'm out the door, I'm NOT going back in!

I did remember the camera. Here are the big wooden things. Hey, do you go to the zooomr page and check the Geotags to see where the pictures were taken? You can, but it's kinda slow sometimes. Plus, you can view the largest size of the pics, if there is one.

I cropped it out, but there is a vehicle parked in front of the no parking signs. I guess you may park there only if you are special.

As I approached the Tyrone St. and N. Westwind Drive intersection, I saw a guy on a hand-cranked bicycle tooling rather slowly along on Westwind. After waiting for a couple of cars, I followed his trail, intending to catch up and maybe take a pic. But he had disappeared!

I took Murray drive back around Grossmont, but did not pick up and more rocks. Did I mention I was doing a modified Dam Ride in reverse? I had picked up some rocks on the Fletcher Parkway Hill.

In fact, I found this at the Cuyamaca St./Fletcher Parkway intersection.
It is a spark plug gap testing tool. Do spark plugs still have gaps?

What a messy desk! The projects are piling up, and nothing is getting done!

That Murray Drive is an interesting road. It goes in a big U-shape, sort of. Follow it on Google Maps, if you care.

I didn't follow it, I went up and over on Grossmont Blvd. At the bottom of the hill, Grossmont and Bancroft Drive, what did I see on my right, but what looked very much like that guy on the hand-cranked bicycle. Huh.

Well, after all that excitement I continued on home, and got there safely.

There are seventy-five miles on the Jamis trip'o'meter for the week.
