30 days - 140 miles

In the last 30 days, I've had to fill my gas tank once.

Car pooling is good for the environment, my moto-budget, and keeping Lady Luck from going insane in traffic... but very bad for my mental health. It's not that I mind riding in the car so much (after all, Lady Luck is good company, even when I'm tired and in a rotten mood), it's that I'm not on two wheels.

You might ask, "Lucky, why don't you go out riding after work or on the weekends?"

A fair question. There are three reasons.

1. I haven't had time this month.
2. It's freaking hot out.
3. Really, it's just ridiculously, stupidly hot outside, 24 hours a day right now.

We have reached the special time of year where I just sweat all the time, and once I get hot I can't cool off. Cold shower? Doesn't work. Swimming? The community pool is bath-water temperature right now. Sitting in front of a fan? Just a good way to dehydrate.

So, sorry I haven't been posting much lately. I haven't had any good moto-adventures to talk about. As soon as I have one, I'll let you know!

It's over 110°F here, and has been for a few weeks. I'll gladly trade with you.

Tomorrow's my day to ride to work, and I'm excited even if it is stupidly hot out.
