-30-

I started this blog about this time of year in 2005. Call it the seven year itch, but I think I’ve had enough. I no longer feel the inspiration to write it, and I haven’t had as much time lately to give it attention. Maybe I’ll feel compelled to resurrect it at some point in the future. Maybe not.

It has been a hoot to play with this medium. I’ve entertained myself, I’ve gotten in hot water on occasion, and I’ve even made some new friends. I’ve had quite a few people give me the finger over it, too. Thanks to those of you who stopped for a look.

I hear ya, Tim! Can't believe I've been reading your rants, etc. for almost as long as you've been posting. You inspired me to start my blog (which is oft-neglected due to my non-biking year).

Maybe you just need a new topic. Cheers!

I'll miss all the good winter riding stuff, but I get you. Thanks for all the great posts, especially the fingers.

I hear you on the lack of motivation. It's been great reading and I'm glad it made the connection for us to meet. We'll look you up next time we are in AK; you do the same next time you are in MN.

Thanks for all the ghoti!

Hope you have a short sabbatical. Your beaver photos have always given a wry smile.

Well, Tim, when I thoroughly enjoyed it when I remembered to read it. It will be missed!

really? you may feel like you lost some inspiration, but it never showed in your posts.

so now you'll have more time to crash Dirt Divas rides.

thanks for the stories, tips, and rants! ~corinne

Sad to see the blog come to an end. I have enjoyed reading it over the years. I love how you just tell it like it is! Thanks for the great reads...

Dang! Your's is probably the funnest blog I keep track of. Most are too wordy, have too many pictures or not any, and don't get to the point, or in other words mental masturbation. I hope to see you in Anchortown some this next February.
