Well, I just found a new group of people just as insane as we are here. I did my first triathlon this morning and I tell ya. Some of them folks are completely nuts! I was happy just to finish without further injuring my hip. SOme of these guys were calculating their times down to 5 seconds on things.

Hehe. That we me earlier this afternoon! The legs were a bit wonky for a while. Oddly enough, playing a bit of softball (I was conned into it) did the trick and now I'm only slightly tight :D

Mountain biking has become my Weekend Warrior activity. Tiring but the views are worth it.

I salute anyone with the willpower to do that kinda thing. We had a guy in the office who did Iron Man competitions. While he was participating in one in British Columbia he fell off his bike, broke his collarbone, then got back on the bike and finished the race!

Crazy!

I have to confess, I do like my Mountain Bike too.

Although the temps here are approaching the 115 mark so that will slow down the biking in favor of some serious model building under the AC.

I've got a mountain bike too, and like to go out on it when the weather permits.

Well, the bathtub ring effect is about 20 feet high so that means the lake still has at least a quarter million gallons or so left. Looking at this picture you can see where the darker part of the land forms in the lake indicate the original water level before things got sorta on the drought side.

Image

They have moved the boat docks enmasse to places where the water level will allow them to have safe draft levels, which means that if you were used to some favorite fishing spots, they are pretty much on land for the moment. The high point is you can find all the fishing tackle that everyone has lost from ground snags in the past 30 or so years. I have about 8 large coffee cans full of lead weights stashed waiting for a nice winter day to set up my 30 pound lead pot and recast a whole bunch of new weights, jig heads, and other odds and ends. ;) :lol:

All this lighter colored area on the shore line used to be under water.
