    There was lots of new pavement on my ride today. I wish i had paid attention. They just may have fixed that entire route.

    Apparently Big Foot exists. At least his statue was stolen from the Big Foot Museum in Felton, California. It is only 4 feet tall, so I'm guessing it isn't life size.

    Bigfoot was pissed that such a little-foot statue was all the museum would display.

    I have high standards so much so that I took a phu-ket Friday today...more because I can no longer carry PTO into the new year. Use or loose now and the end of the year is coming up quickly :( I still had 92 hours to burn up. I'm having to take a 40 hour payout :( I'd MUCH rather have taken the time.

    Skip lunch and leave even earlier, I've been doing that a lot lately :D

    All is well in Felton, California. The Bigfoot statue has been found!

    I’m thinking there’s not another fiber splicing crew available on the peninsula after 4 spans of 288 count fibers were torn down last night

    @rola. What's up with THAT‽

    Wind or dump truck with the bed up driving through the neighborhood?

    Oddest thing, no one saw a thing or reported it.

    My money is on an over height Excavator, it's happened twice this year alone. Go figure. Usually when they snag it it snaps poles but not this time. My best guess it that we had a fiber storage loop in a figure 8 that got snagged.

    Not really enjoying the BS from this state. Specially when the governor gets caught violating all of the protocols he put in place.

    The problem with that is the local trails are rumored to have bobcats, cougars, and possibly a bear hanging around at night.

    You can ride safely at night. I just read an article where most of the Sheriffs and a lot of the PDs in CA are not going to enforce it. They are saying that they have enough to do without pulling over people after 10:00 pm to see if they have a legitimate reason to be out.

    Wonder if tazers work on animals? Probably safer with animals than riding at night in road with drunks and people staring at their intestines.

    In the town i grew up near, we had a 10p curfew. That’s when the big game of hide and seek with the town cop started.
