The Maßkrug

Can your beer glass hold 40oz of steel reserve?

I have wanted one of these for a while, but at $16 dollars from Amazon it was a luxury I couldn't afford. But.. Today I found one at Goodwill for $4, with a 50% off color, so it was only $2! Score!


My alcoholism just hit a new level. One glass of beer takes on a whole new meaning. Oh, by the way, it's pronounced mass-kroog. Sweet.

New tires.

After putting about 1600 miles on my Resist Nomad tires, I decided they are turds and returned to the old gold standard, Paselas. I will review the Nomads in full at a later date.

It is a joy riding again. I lost about a pound of rotational weight and now am able to maintain higher commuting speeds. I am now able to cruise on the flats at about 18 mph instead of 15 mph. Good for getting places. My commute takes me about 42 minutes instead of 50. Good enough for me.

Last Friday David and I went on a 80 mile ride. David is a guy I took some classes with in Spokane. Turns out we both were on the nursing path and at the same point on that path. Even stranger, we both were moving to Vancouver WA to attend Clark College.  But the best thing is the dude is a total bike nerd. You wanna talk about bikes for 8 hours? David is your guy.

Overlooking Sauvie Island while drinking some Four Lokos. Classy.

Love the colorful boat houses.

Ominous clouds but no rain.

Anyway, beautiful day in Portland.
