Seven Hundred Dollars Later...

...and I have a new work wardrobe! At least part of one: I bought a bunch of new shirts and and slacks at the local Men's Wearhouse. Shirts came home with me, and the pants will be ready for a Tuesday pick-up.

I also need to pick up a few new pairs of corduroys, which are my go-to choice for casual work trousers. I tried hitting the Army-Navy Store, but they had nothing like that; my next foray will be to Sears or the Mall or something like that.

Not much to say otherwise, just hanging out at home today. I was going to do a Jim Thorpe ride but I think the ground is still too wet and I don't want to trash the place, and we did a road ride yesterday. Maybe the gym later? Or possibly some yoga at home, we'll see.

Tomorrow I think I'll bring the road bike to work, take advantage of some of that Daylight Savings Time.

By the way, new photos are posted, from a Friday walk along the Lehigh Towpath near Sand Island. Not quite the disaster scene I'm used to from my Easton days, but there was some serious flooding going on.

Used to do it all the time, but it was only a 40 mile round trip. Great way to get extra miles, I've been thinking about doing it again but that means leaving the house before 5:00 AM -- NOT GONNA HAPPEN.

I had a bonking problem only once, and it was at the end of multiple days of commuting, and I suspect long term nutritional failures off the bike (ie not eating enough breakfast, day after day) were the cause. Fuel up and all will be well!

Dirt: I was seriously thinking about it, but did a road ride Saturday, Nazareth area (Anne's old stomping grounds), then blew off just about everything useful on Sunday, rides, chores.. A little voice has been telling me "not yet."
