We'll have some commentary about our little vacation as well as what we've been up to the last few weeks when we get back.

In the meantime, have a good weekend. If you're in a place that's sunny and warm, ride some trails for me.

The thesis defense is scheduled. May 7th, 10AM. I'm oddly not concerned about it. However, I just wish this writing thing was out of the way already.
I am gainfully employed for the Summer and probably Fall to continue the positive cashflow while Lorena's finishing up. I think that's the part I'm looking forward to the most at the moment. Not having this research thing lingering in the background. Getting my master's degree has been great, for sure. I'm ready to be done. Kind of like when I got my bachelor's all those years ago.
Looks like my program's finished running. Time to get some more data to analyze.

On a lighter note...(no pun intended)... If you're looking for a good band to relax to, I recommend the band Westbound Train. Check 'em out.
And finally, I came across this blog via the Urban Velo site. This guy has a good idea. It's unfortunate that he's had so much trouble with law enforcement in certain locales because they are ignorant of the state laws or just don't give a damn about cyclists. The guy's had some success getting citations issued to reckless drivers and appears to have developed a good relationship with the police in other towns to help promote cyclists' safety. Definitely worth reading.
Time to go grab some coffee. I don't know how I managed to write all of this before my first cup.

While pretty normal for Summer, especially in areas with cattle, those little buggers are impossible to see. They let you know they're there pretty quickly though, often leading to fits of spitting as you try to get rid of that mouthful of them you just inhaled while trying to hang in the group. I think the funniest part is when you hear them bounce off of your helmet. It's hard to believe that something that small can make so much noise.
It's supposed to try to snow a little here over the weekend. I hope it's Winter's last gasp... and I know I'm not the only one.
For those of you still biding your time on the frozen tundra, here's something that might make the off-season a little shorter.
