as we can all plainly see (well i have no idea how many people read this thing) my last post was on feb 16th and that was the second day of my bathroom and kitchen project. not finished yet, but am very very insanely close to being so. i have successfully laid, grouted and sealed the tile in both the kitchen and the bathroom. repainted and patched the bathroom walls and cabinets, and that is as far as the train has gone. these projects always, and i mean always take much longer than anticipated, but always look fantastic in the end. i actually thought i'd have this project knocked out within the week that i began, amazing. mike i honestly don't know how you do it man. you continue to update your house, have kids, have grandkids, a full time job, a wife and you still crush the bike weekly for training. you are an inspiration to me my friend, you are for us all. by the way man i installed the new chain rings, cassette and chain on the HiFi today and let me just say it's ready for some trail action.

in other news i have decided to cancel ordering my sexy new Fisher X-Cal for reasons that it may not be here for over another month. there is a chance that it might be here early, but my wife has graciously allowed me to borrow her 07' Fisher Paragon for this race season and pimp it out with some new components. she is a wonderful wifey yes she is.

also the new bike shop is ever closer to becoming a reality. people have been working non-stop down there getting stuff together and we're hoping for a grand opening in the next 2-3 weeks. we just got in around 30 or so new bikes for inventory and we've really run out of room down there. lets just say we can't wait for the new place.

adventure monkey man is going to have a magazine release party on march 13 and man i can't wait for that. this has become such an awesome adventure in itself that i can't wait to see it all materialize. "Adventure Monkey" magazine has huge potential in my eyes and i promise right now that i'd subscribe to it. eric you are the man, and i'm pumped to see so many people excited about this project.

in some riding news my buddy jed and i went out for a little 25 mile jaunt in the flint hills yesterday and it was the first time in 4 months that i haven't had to wear 5 layers and a wind jacket while we road. it was fantastic and i am so excited for spring to be here. lets just get those trails dried up huh? then we'll be talkin.

lastly my 08' Felt Nine Comp still has NOT SOLD, so if you or anyone you know is in the market for an awesome 29er at an INCREDIBLE deal let me know and we can work something out. thanks for reading my blog. you are wonderfully beautiful.
