I am well-fed with all of Mom and Dad’s great home-cooking. We are talking red chile enchiladas, flank steak, waffles from scratch, breakfast burritos, assorted delicious baked desserts, garlic green beans, and some quality Stone IPA and red wine. Now that I’m spoiled rotten, fat, and happy, it’s time to head back to the bubble and eat my normal high fiber diet and hop on the bike.
Not only was I spoiled with food, but I got to drive my dad’s Z06 Corvette more than once this weekend, and I was finally comfortable “gunning” it. I mean, 5000 RPM (you can take it to 7000) accelerating to 60mph in second gear, being slammed back into the seat with the engine roaring. It’s pretty intense for me, but not that impressive for someone who drives fast cars. 🙂 Not only that, but he goes to this exotic car breakfast every Saturday. He asked me to come along. I didn’t only go to eat Dos Hermanos burritos, but to leave some of my drool on a few of the super machines. I took some photos:
There were actually about 20 cars there. Nice!
Mosler. These things are like $300k + and it’s super light – in fact, for us bike nerds, a lot of it is carbon. The owner was trying to explain why carbon fiber is a cool material…. haha I told him my bikes were made of carbon.
Note the air freshener. haha
Believe it or not, this truck was the fastest vehicle there.
Ok, enough about cars. You guys can just go to my flickr account if you want to see more. Sorry to bore some of you, but I think the pics are pretty cool.
I got to check out a new brewery in town called Marble Brewery. I think they are owned by my other favorite brewery in town – Chama River Brewing . Make sure you stop in one of those places if ever passing through here.
I also got spend some time with one of my really good friends, Jolene. I have known her since I was 9 or 10! We have gotten in a lot of trouble together in the past. heee heee
Got some fun rides, camping, and hiking planned for next week. Yipee!
