Realized i forgot the pic


This is a rainbow i saw the other day on the way home from work. I took this driving down the road.

Had to replace the back tire on the bike yesterday. I took a 400 mile ride on saturday by myself and it was amazing. The only downside was that i wore my tire to the thread. I found this out on monday as i took off work to ride another route i wanted to check out. But after a friend called and said she had a horible nightmare about me dying in a bike wreck i decided id seen enough omens. The omens wereher dream, my worn out tire and both my chain tensioners were magically loose. Not just loose but totally unscrewed.

I spent the day getting a new back tire and getting the oil changed in my car and getting her inspected. Was a ton of fun and expensive let me tell ya. I need to get some pics of the bike for the blog.

Wow! Im falling off bad!

Ahh well.. where the hell have I been you might be asking? The truth is riding the living shit out of this motorcycle! Ive put somewhere in the neighborhood of 2500 miles on her in the short month Ive had it. My car is starting to get jealous!

Ive been sailing a little but mostly Im waiting till the end of the "summer" season in Kemah because its a total bitch to try and launch the hobie cat right now while fighting weeekend beachgoers. We are getting closer to fall and better surf though... God I need to get back in the water.

Ive been talking with a few friends on the net and it looks like I could possibly have some friends along for the ride on the trip for a little ways. They wont be able to hang out the whole time but it will be cool nonetheless.

Other than that, nothing much has been going on. Im just saving and watching time tick by. Im eager as hell to setout and get moving. Ive also been working on some ideas for when I return and how I can continue a life of being on the move, surfing, sailing and just enjoying my time. I dont want to go back to the office life for as long as I can stand it. Ill work odd jobs here and there ... whatever I have to do. I do know that I would like to try my hand at building a small sailboat when I return, somethign I can camp cruise the texas coast on. We shall see!
