taking some time offDougSloan

I'm going to take some time off the bike and away from everything cycling related, inluding this site. I'm going to focus on work and home. The baby is starting to be fun, now, and I want to spend a lot more time with him.

No problems here, but I find it hard to be here just a little. I tend to over do things or not do them at all.

So, goodbye for a while. Don't know how long, but at least several months. If you see me come back in a moment of weakness, tell me to get lost. Thanks. Best to everyone.

Doug,

It may be best to go cold turkey. Have you tried cutting back to odd or even days? Not such a bad thing to be 'a little' involved.

Best to you, the Mrs. and the Kid.

Take care and see you later. nmSintesi

Babies are fun at this age, aren't they? I haven't been here much either for that very reason.

Now, get lost.
Adios! We'll miss hearing from you.Kristin

I always enjoy your posts, even if I don't always agree with your political views. Your ultra riding is an inspiration to me -- someone who did not complete his first century until 2001. If you have a moment of weakness, I, for one, will not tell you to get lost. I understand the all or nothing way of life. I often am accused of it. But, even an old Dog can learn new tricks (i.e., moderation). Whatever you do, thanks for good information and entertaining writing you have posted here and I look forward to your posts in the future -- whether they be next week or several months from now.
this seems to happen about twice a year--just kiddin...have fun!ColnagoFE

Good luck, the most I can manage is a couple of days. I can't give the bike up no matter what......"tend to over do things or not do them at all" this sounds familiar....
Enjoy him now.look271

They don't stay little long. It seems just a few years ago my oldest was falling asleep in the child carrier while I took her for a ride. Saturday we were looking at ADULT roadbikes for her. (She's a BIG 10yr old.) I took a week off last week and it did me good-a little time off makes you appreciate it more, or it at least seems that way to me.
