back in action!
got the computer back in action thanks to a shitload of time courtesy of serge. thanks, serge! had to erase everything and start over. sooo..... to catch up on the last few days, didn't get much done today, spent the day running errands getting all sketched out on the ice, just waiting to fall every step. totally gripping and stressful, even with the crutch crampons that deanne got me from crested butte adaptive sport center. walking on the ice is pretty safe, it's when you fold them up and hit tile floors with wet crutch tips that things get scary. hitting the ground with a titanium femur that's still healing two years later after being shattered in twenty pieces and two spinal fusions with plates, rods, setscrews and plain 'ole screws hurts, allot. anyway, on the homefront, got ray's bike all brazed up. looks cool! gonna file that baby down tomorrow. it's a traditional 700c tourer able to accommodate 29er tires. pretty sweet. i'll post more pics as it gets shiny-er. and, keri's bike-to-be. a dedicated 26" 1-speed with paragon sliders. straight toptube. it's gonna be light and fast. lastly, a good pic of what happens when you wave a 6,000 degree oxy-acetylene torch at your arm from a couple feet away. don't try this at home! what a FNG move......more soon, my photos being back on line saved me from having to write my essay on heat treated tubing and fatigue cycles......yay! steve.
