Firsties!

I'm sick of snow. The muscles in my legs are diminishing from the lack of pedal pushing.

Kris, sorry to hear that bro, but I hope it's for the best. At least you can finish that list of beers

Ryan, luckily I have minimum feet to snow contact this week.

Well, I'm off to work, be on in 30 min or so.

Since we didn't refinance, I can walk away - no financial judgment can be made against me (no tax implications either).

Unfortunately California is a no fault/community property state so even though things were ...her fault..., she got away with my retirement .

Well, having been through divorce, bankruptcy and losing $100k bucks equity in the house we lost, I can tell you that what you are doing will be far less destructive to you credit. I bought a house 4 years later, so there is life after this. Hang in there! At least you have a nice E46 with the best interior I have ever seen!

That's why I took up running, so I could cross-train in the Winter. Riding in the stand is too boring for me. We've just begun a dry spell, so I will probably go for this ride tomorrow: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path...erritory385225 (an out and back over a fairly remote road with a very tough climb - 2 climbs actually - the South side, and then the North side on the way back home).

Anyone else find it strange that it is about 40 degrees at Daytona today. Those guys must be freezing at 198mph with the window down!

Sorry to hear that Kris. Divorce is tough. Been there, done that, got a tee-shirt and promptly burned it.

I've been single now for 11 years. Six months ago I met a wonderful woman and fell in love with her. Two days ago I asked her to marry me and she said yes! So I am now engaged and we are planning to tie the knot at the end of May!

In F1 they use tire warmers so the tires are basically operating temp when they leave the pitlane . Nascar doesn't so the tires are ambient temp. First few laps must be "exciting".

Carlson The Flyer , Congratulations...Well Done .
