I’ve made a few online friends since I started blogging, and some of these friends I’ve actually got to meet in person. Last year I hooked up with Smudgemo, who writes the blog You Just Don’t Want To, and we rode the Rim and Flume Trails up in the mountains above Carson City (The tale of that ride is HERE).
My family and I were down in the Bay Area last weekend, and Smudgemo was nice enough to put us up at his house for a couple nights. He also helped us get onto the public transportation going into San Francisco, and showed us all the good places to eat.
I also gained a new appreciation for my easy commute in Carson City. Carson City is surrounded by mountains, but the city is nearly flat. Commuters in the Bay Area have big, steep hills to deal with, and a lot more traffic. We’re spoiled here!
I was admiring Smudgemo’s Xtracycle, and I thought it’d be a great bike to get a photo on. Kristy snapped this great photo of us that in no way will remind you of the opening to the Laverne and Shirley TV show.
