Somethingclassicin... Chicago!


A town of black jackets and smart phones. Homeless people and hoodies. BMW's and subways. Deep dish pizza and hot dogs. Wind chill and lake effect. And lots (and lots) to do.

Bring a warm jacket, and gloves, and a hat, and a scarf. Alcohol helps.

Thank you X for the awesome surprise trip.

Great town.

Save Ferris.

Burning the Candle at Both Ends

Hey Everybody,

Just checking in.

2012 has been crazy hectic with work going into hyper drive since Jan 1... but the last 7 days in particular have been off the charts busy.

We moved.

After a non stop weekend of boxing, lifting, recruiting, u-hauling, lifting and un-boxing, we're finally halfway settled in the new pad.

After looking at the great pic's from Street Cred stage 1 i was kicking myself for not going, i actually had a small window between moving duties but i just didn't have it in me plus X probably would have stared a hole right thru my skull if i rode off to participate. Not that i would blame her. i was however comforted knowing all you corncobs were huffing and puffing up the 'lord of the rings stairs' off Broadway Blvd. You like those? I do. Thats why i got 'em included in the race. Yep, i'm taking credit for that.

I'm awesome.

So.... the candle burning continues tonight with the Wednesday night urban mountain bike ride.

We leave Latte Land on the west side of the Plaza at 630. Not the Latte Land by the North Face store. Ride for 1.5 to 2 hrs at a medium pace. It's fun.

After that you can come over and help me unload more boxs.

p.s. the new pad is the bomb.

(no photos, too busy!)

Street Cred Starts Today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So i broke my promise and didn't do a post every night leading up to today. But Street Cred isn't about following the rules. It's about putting a brick thru the other guys window. It's about taking it out, and choppin it up.

See you today!
