My car is broken

I just received word from the mechanic that the transmission system in my car “blew up.”  Maybe it just wore out after 220,000 miles.  I was always proud of how many miles I put on that car and wanted to see how far I could push it.  The mechanic said it will cost more than $1,000 to fix it and I wonder if it is worth it to put that much money into a nearly 20 year old car.  The end result []

Commuting Fun (as long as I don’t get hit by a car)

I made the commute one day last week.  Its always enjoyable to get out in nature, even when the mornings are particularly cold.  However, the commute back home on the North side always seems to take a long time.  That’s why I’m thinking of switching my commute route to the South side of Suncrest.  I’m hoping that this will be a faster way up.  Also, I can take a bus for part of the way home, which isn’t available on the North side []

Frost on the window – Snow on the mountain peaks

This morning, I saw snow for the first time on the mountain peaks surrounding my house.  In addition, I also had frost on my car window this morning.  The cooler weather seems to be coming rather soon, however, as summer doesn’t end until September 21st, right?  Since we live at 6,000 feet, I suppose that accerlerates the onslaught of fall and winter somewhat.  I did ride 5 more miles this morning.  I need to go on some long-mileage rides in order to meet my goal.  http://www.strava.com/athletes/424498/latest-rides/780c8c7d9d1dab3c1f2aed03da85bc16e22554e9
