Unfortunately (well, actually it's fortunate in the bigger picture, but that's not what this blog is about...), I've got a shift in project stuff at work so it's taking up a lot of my obsessing processing space, which is really something I have to do "in memory" if you know what I mean. Pro obsessers like Pat can save off a complex set of obsessions to disk for later while churning on multiple obsess-threads in real time. The guy is good.
I'm a serial-obsesser. If I get more than one obsession going at once I can't really focus and no obsessing gets done. So, I'm putting my active obsession into work at the moment and I'm putting my Midnight Century obsession on auto-pilot.
|In year's past, I've worn a backpack with blinkies and reflective tape. |
I have a blinky and a solid (lower left -- dyno driven) on this bike.
I may sew some reflective tape on my vest.
If weather continues to hold, I'll be happy in knicks, light LS wool, and vest. I'll have emergency bivy (about the size of a hacky sack), wool cap, and thin wool liner gloves too.
|A bit more bag than I need. |
I'll have to be careful not to fill it up.
Tool bag on our left. Spare tire on our right.
Rory's bag hack works swimmingly btw.
Food: Ruffles and a couple snickers. One water bottle will have Nuun.
Dope: Two Advils before roll out. Two at the Palouse crossing.
I plan on taking a couple 40 mile rides this week before work. But other than that, I'll take it easy.
