Yeah, and that doofus, Aashish, suggests that I take up writing! And become a self-published author! What is he thinking?

Does he forget that Disgruntled Publicus sleeps on the floor in the corner? Does he forget how viciously that same Disgruntled Publicus criticized the puff piece writings of our former News Editor? Does he forget the hurt and pain suffered by reason to the stabbing criticisms? Does he forget the intellectual and other wounds suffered by the petards hurled his way by that same Disgruntled Publicus?

I may be Polish, but I'm not stupid. That's all it would take for Disgruntled to go off his meds! No writing by me, thank you!

In that case, get Nancy to start writing. Then she can be your primary sponsor for the El Jefe racing team

Before Lewis & Clark got popular, I read their travel journal. Not the scientific stuff, but the daily grind of rowing the boats, finding food, playing with the Indians, running away from grisly bears, soaking in the rain, freezing in the cold and warding off the fleas.

I've kept a journal of sorts about the MGA and the racing. It is quite long after 10 years. A lot of the same stuff that I've posted on these boards.

I was thumbing through it the other night and thought that with some hard editing, it would make a good read for the two or three people who might be interested in what it was like. (although my kids certainly aren't interested!) Working title: Journal of the Open Trailer Racer.

Now we are talking. Self-publish and I bet it'll do better than the BS Levy series and I'll bet it will be more entertaining than Hobbo (which made for entertaining reading too).

Supposed to be near 40 tomorrow (Friday), maybe get rid of most of the 3"+ of new snow we got today.

we got a dusting on the ground but south of here they were calling for 2 inches. Looking forward to the warmer day myself.

Not quite.

I was gently criticized last summer for how slow I was climbing down Gothics and then Sawteeth. Lack of flexibility more than exhaustion.
