Video on the Wheel

I have been working feverishly on a new video. I thought I'd show you all the gear I hauled last time I shot an interview. I'll have a clip soon.

Mulch Run Number 4

Saturday marked the last of my Theo Chocolate Mulch Runs for the early summer. This load is made up of two especially heavy bags weighing close to thirty pounds each. Both today and yesterday I went up Fremont Ave unlike the first Mulch Run where I went up the more gradual, but out of the way Stone Way.

Our garden loves this stuff.

Mulch Run Number 3

This is another 75+ pounds of Cocoa mulch from Theo Chocolates in Seattle. We have been putting it in our garden. I was hoping to get four or five bags on but was only able to get three of them strapped down. To get home I had to climb around 750 feet especially if you factor in the down hill detour to the farmers market.

Early Cargo Run

The year is 1998 and I have just bought my BOB. Mostly for this Thanksgiving trip from Chicago to New Mexico...on the train.

This is one of my favorite "Secret Chicago" locations.

In addition to a weeks worth of clothes and who know what else there is also a small collapsible cooler (a couple of meals for the train trip) and a pack packing kitchen for making hot cocoa in NM.

I really was not so sure I'd get much use out of the BOB. Was I wrong! Everyone should have one in their household. .

Bike Polo Bikes

Here is a load of bikes I took down to Mobius yesterday. I found one in the weeds and the other in a free pile. Someone will be happy to have them and I am glad to get rid of them.
