    Still in my dang cube salivating for suds.

    Fridays are great, but they go so much slower than the rest of the week.

    Ugh, I know all you in a time zone east of me are already enjoying your Friday beers, while I have an hour and 8 minutes to go.....not that I'm counting.

    Happy Friday to all! Rode a good ride last night, and will be hitting some killer trails over the weekend! Enjoy everyone!

    So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life.

    What about today? Is today the worst day of your life?

    Yeah.

    Wow, that's messed up.
    I haven't had a "Friday" in 9 years.

    Well since you're a day ahead of us here in the USA, please continue to lead the way just as you've done for so long already...

    Here is my recap

    We have had guests in our house all week. The guests gave my dog the stomach flu that they brought with them. The dog has pooped twice in the house.

    We had planned on going to Mt Rushmore today, so I had the day off.

    I had an early morning ride to enjoy my day off. I did a duty in cleaning out the webs for others. I did crashonce and landed in thorns. Just a little blood but no worries.

    We drove to the National Eagle Center. I was stopped for speeding on the way back. He asked how fast did I think I was going. I said 55. He said 69. I said that is impossible. He said he calibrated his detector daily. I commented that it was still impossible. He said he was going to had planned on just giving me a warning until I questioned his numerical accuracy. After he spends a few minutes in his car he returns with a warning ticket and asks if I had any questions. I fought the urge to continue our prior debate and said no. Upon departure, I see he wrote the warning with me now going 70. Now I'm pissed bc I know he was indeed wrong about my speed and he was just guessing.

    It is not Friday.
    It is only the fifth Monday of the week.
    I have found that by getting rid of every work week day except Monday, I have fewer highs and lows throughout the week. Everyday sucks equally.
    It like socialism meets the calendar.
    Friday will start when I clock off from work.

    And the great thing is, after having Wednesday off, today only 'feels' like a Tuesday! I love the surprise at the end of the day realizing it is, in fact, the weekend already.

    Brother is coming to town, and we have some good rides planned, so I'm stoked. Have a good one!

    My weekend starts in 5 hours. Got some weekend rides planned, Sunday night the kids come back home, will probably ride then and Monday (3 day weekends). May do some yard work Saturday, maybe not.

    Only 4 things are certain of every weekend: Beer, trails, sex, rangers baseball

    I don't take vacations, instead I take Fridays off all summer. It's my favorite day to ride because it feels like the weekend but it's not so I usually have wherever I'm riding to myself. I'll stop thinking that's awesome when I mortally wound myself on a Friday ride.

    Yes, we should! Used to ride a HT, moved on to a FS. It climbs more better, contrary to what a certain member has been raving about in the 29er Bikes forum at this moment...

    I'm going to race over there on my full suspension XC bike to derail it after I get done working on my own thread. I'm thinking a graph chart picture should do it.

    Sure you guys may climb better on your FS bikes due to the increase in traction but I'm talking about speed only. A hardtail climbs faster than a full suspension but an FS climbs more efficiently due to its ability to track the ground better.

    However with a little technique I can climb just as efficient on the techy stuff with my HT, and a lot faster to, and I prefer speed as to anything else.

    You should have stayed with the hardtail hawg. Give me the frame I'll put it to good use.

    Trail Addict, do you ever ride for fun, for exercise, for the sake of getting away from it all, for the scenery??? Or, is it always race, race, race, being enclosed in your own little universe, not really in touch with what's going on around you? No offense but that's how you're making it sound in your world.

    I ride/climb hard and fast and I'm not racing anyone but myself. Got nothing to prove. Already been on the top step of the podium in other types of competition. Winning isn't everything, in fact it can be lonely at the top. If my HT climbed any faster, it was because it weighed a little more than 3 pounds less than my FS.

    There is a forum on this website called "XC racing and training", ya know? You can exchange blows with those guys who are probably equally as competitive. Heck, if I were you, I'd try to arrange a friendly little MTBR member XC race with some guys in your region. Perhaps you could reign as the champion? It would be a way for sure to see who is king for a day. I'd be interested in seeing that.

    Oh, by the way, my HT frame is for sale in the MTBR classifieds. I'll make you a sweet deal on it...
