Decided to smoke a turkey for the upcoming gathering. Having never before done so, had to buy a smoker (Weber Smokey Mountain 18.5) and do a trial run with some small breasts. Should have been doing this 20 years ago. First time was a charm. Best $330 turkey I've ever had. mmmmmmmm

Hookie Monster

Been burning some vacation days and getting some good rides in. Everything's dying out there but it smells so alive. Ride yer bike!

Couple times a year we gather as siblings and help Mom & Dad stock up on winter wood for the stove. Decided to ride the ~18mi out to get some miles in and earn that great country breakfast Mom whips up for us at halftime (work 3 hours, eat, work slower for 3 hours). Road into the morning sunrise, past some fields and farms I hauled hay for 20 years ago, past the house where I first kissed my wife at a college party nearly that long ago. Miss that El Camino. These are good days.
