Jonesing for a Ride So the weather sucks, I'm stuck in Boston, my bike's in Virginia, and I really wanna ride. I've been reading Alexis' stories lately. Man, there's a woman who rides! 50K miles last year. Crazy, or what?

I'd love to be able to do that. Tonight, Captain Bob & I were chatting about riding. We were talking about doing the four corners....7,000 miles in 21 days. He said, "That's really not too bad—400 miles a day as an average." I reminded him, though, that we'd be somewhere else...Key West or San Diego when we finished. He said, "Yeah, but then it doesn't matter how long it takes to get back."

To which I replied, "Uh, well, if I still have to work, it does."

The life of a retired guy.
