MTB Throwback

I wrote about my cycling origin almost two months ago after inspiration struck from a photo of my grandfather. It included how I learned to ride and riding as a youth, but also included the second chapter in my two wheeled life, mountain bike racing. Along with fond memories of those times, I also keep an album of my adventures in my office. To that end I am in the middle of getting cycling photos, new and old, together for a wedding present for Grant. Mehtul was kind enough to take these analog photos and digitize them for I can turn them back to analog for the album, crazy no?

So with out further ado, I present old mountain bike photos...
Poor Farm 99: Grant, Me and Mike M.
Poor Farm 00: Grant and Me
Poor Farm 00: Me and a Climb
Poor Farm 00: Grant and a Creek Crossing
Poor Farm 00: Grant and a Winter Climb
Poor Farm 99: Me and a Dirt Jump
The rest can be found in my photo gallery and should not need much of a description. I should be done with the album soon and with Grant and Erin's wedding fast approaching I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Site Watch
Not really a site you should watch on a regular basis, but something worth checking out for funzies. Steampunk computer mods are all well and good, but a true geek likes a good steampunk watch.

Man, we had some good times at Poor Farm. Creek crossings, the Old Man's potato salad, Skinny-Ugly-Kid, got milk, Ron Derose, Vanilla Power Bars, that clay mud jump as you cross the road, the fence, the power lines, Famous Amos cookies, Umma Gummas, all of Gabriel's mechanicals...

I'm lookin' forward to that album, for sure.

This still makes me a little googley eyed... I just can't get over how young Grant looks! Sorry, I'll get it together soon...
