    The world is coming to an end...

    Scenario: The Earth's mega-volcanoes are going to start erupting all at once. This will start huge earthquakes worldwide which will tear the crust of our planet. The tearing will distort the shape of our planet, intensifying the gravitational pull on the Moon. The Moon will crash into the Earth. The Moon's rapid exit from space will pull in a few sizable passing asteroids which will crash into Earth not long afterward. You're not gonna make it...

    This will happen 2 weeks from the time you read this news. What will you do with the short time you have left to live?

    I am going to grab my bike, mount it to my fishing kayak, grab some poles and tackle, a case of backpacking food (mountain house), a couple cases of beer and hit the river. Where I'll end up, who knows. But by the time I get far enough there should be some serious waves to ride from the massive earthquake and I'll be having fun till the end. .

    Do you have a set up like that? I've gone fishing and brought a bike along but it was a rowboat so we just threw it in there. That would be awesome to see a bike mounted to a kayak.

    I would put my head down and work as hard and long as possible to finish all my projects because I want my boss to know how much I respect him and love giving my life to the corporation


    What I would really do is exactly the opposite of that.

    Not yet Girlonbike... not yet. I just got a new 12 foot sit on top fishing yak with tons of room. It can be done now just by removing the wheels and strapping it all on the rear using the deck rigging. I will have to get it done and post some pics. But, I am sure there is a good way to do it, just need to research it a bit.

    Set up a hammock, grab a keg of my favorite brew and kick back. In full view of all the other people running around like chickens with their heads cut off. And enjoy the ride. By the time it all hit I'd be 3 sheets t the wind and wouldn't feel a thing.

    this guy I used to work with asked "what would you do if you were on an airplane that was 100% going to crash with no survivors?" His answer was that he would kill the person next to him so he could experience that.... guy was kinda f'ed up.

    Me, I'd play that 'Don't worry, be happy" song (for a little while) and marvel at the beauty of the world. And probably have a few beers. And bbq a lot. And watch out for that guy I used to work with...

    I would ask singlesprocket to draw up plans for a space ship. Preferably something that can carry a few thousand people. Then I'd help him build the space ship. Then we would fly around the earth collecting samples of flora and fauna. Then we would pick up a few friends and family and then offer the remaining spaces to great thinkers, artists, scientists, trades people, clinicians etc etc.

    I would grab a towel and all our bikes

    Then we'd fly to Mars.

    I can't believe somebody hasn't said that they would make sure that the OC camping trip we've talked about would come true before the end.

    Me and my kids would eat all the Little Debbie Cakes we could get our hands on. Then I would cry myself to sleep because my new Airborne Goblin comes in 3 weeks.

    That would suck.... I'd have to move up my plans to ride with girlonbike, freighty, and B28. And have to rip Optimus away from his boss and work for a day to ride PicketPost too. Not a meager bucket list for 2 weeks left. I'd also have to tell my pets I love them too, daily, and frequently.

    Sounds good to me. We'll have to meet at centrally located Lincoln, Nebraska though.

    Aren't you on the west coast? Nebraska is not my idea of Mountain biking, Colorado is. I'm not into moving mountains to go ride.

    Not sure why, I was thinking Bay Area or Silicone Valley. Santa Cruz near you? I've not ridden Soquel yet.

    Darling, I drove through Lincoln last November, Lincolns is near the center of hell... Sedona is closer to the center of the vortex. Las Vegas is the center of the whoretex, I just pass through there, never stop, not even for diesel, on my way to CO.

    I would spend it wondering how all of these completely unnaturally occuring events would happen in precise succession - yet the Toronto Maple Leafs still couldn't win another Stanley Cup..........

    Just a single supervolcano, and we're all pretty well screwed.

    I'm going to invite myself to your mountain biking ride and I would definitely drive a little farther to ride in Colorado.
