|It is now 3 o'clock and I am OUTTA HERE!!! I just finished putting the final touches on some work projects that I can HAPPILY shelve for the next two weeks! My bike is packed and ready to fly, the GF is at home waiting for me, and my bags have been packed for the last day! I am off for a trip I have DREAMED about for a long time and is now a reality!
I have to tell you fellas, I may come back an engaged man! I might get caught up in the moment of the race and have my passions surface only to ask the woman who made it happen the "big one!!!"
Anyway, I will try to post from France (WITHOUT SPOILERS!!!) about the scene and race, and I am bringing a digital camera, so I hope to try and post some race pix.

|eat a bagette with some calmanbert. the fruit preserves are good. Smoke some hash and play chess in Luxemborg park,or atleast see Luxemborg park. Wander the worst neighborhoods at 1 in the morning, they arent bad, no guns, (doug its a beautiful thing), walk the seine at night, eat eat eat, you cant get fat your in france. Take the subway and dont pay, no one does, if you get caught there's a fine but its not bad. Dress kind of nice, they all do, unless you want to look like a tourist. Airgilee socks and you'll fit right in. Maybe youve been there before, I love it, was there for 9 weeks and am going back soon.|

|Don't put your wallet in your back pocket....only Americans do that. It's a bright red flag to get pickpocketed. It happened to both of my friends a year ago while we were in Paris.
Enjoy and post those pictures!
