Once in the small courtyard, there are several structures where the Sherif are buried as well as many small graves throughout the courtyard with ornate monuments. The architecture is really cool. Though it is largely in disrepair. Read More

Went out on a walk with Bowie the other day and he got to see 5 no less than 5 FIRE TRUCKS! He was so stoked he had me take these pictures of Reno Fire Department’s Ladder Engine #1. Read more and check out a cool video of one of these trucks raising the ladder

Some good things may be ending…

Drain bagIt was a wise man who once said, “all good things must come to an end.” Perhapse it was groucho marx. I’m not good with stuff like that… I do know that Groucho said that “outside of a dog a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.”
Another wise man once said, “your blog is stupid.” Which is the chief reason this blog is not coming to an end.

Everything will now be done OVER HERE @ blog.iamindisposed.com.

Talk amongst yourselves…

Fiction v Reality

Yeah, I hope fiction wins. Reality is over rated (I’ve seen the video on youtube).

Here’s a link to a local blog “Evolution of the Me.” A great post. Something I can’t steal, but I can link to it.

And since I like to have visuals and it fits the topic:

Moving on:

This is Tahoe and his family. We are on the dangerous side of Tahoe in this pic. If you find yourself staring down the business end of this mutt, my advice would be to move, or grab some big pieces of bark to use as a shield!

Here’s some new friends of ours from Gardenerville. Read all about our trip to Fouth of July Lake on The Facility Bike Club Blog..

Great to meet you guys!

Sunday Driver

Cyclist hit by car in downtown Reno, Nevada.


Callie hit by car

Originally uploaded by i am indisposed
One thing I worry about as I ride my bike around town is getting hit by a car. That’s why I wear a hard shell bmx/freeride helmet.

The thing I worry about even more is someone I love getting hit by a car, since my wife, sisters, brother-in-law and most of my friends ride around town a lot.

That second fear materialized yesterday when I got a call from my sister saying she got T-Boned by a car on her bike. She was riding East on Fourth Street when a westbound car turning south onto Lake hit her at the front wheel. She went over the car, by far the preferable vector, hit the windshield with her helmeted head and onto the ground. Hit her head twice, both times protected by the helmet. She said she remembered the impacts and that they didn’t hurt at all. The helmet is in ok shape. Scuffed and cracked a little. Certainly needs to be replaced.

The driver and several others stopped immeadiately, called police and EMTs. They patched her up with bandages, though she wasn’t actually bleeding anywhere. Everything on the wrap-up went well. The driver got a ticket and has insurance.

Her bike is a little messed up. The front wheel bearings are running rough indicating a bent axle, which means that the carbon forks are ruined. The rear wheel is out of true and the driveside chainstay is bent. Various other scratches and scuffs, but not horrible. She can’t ride it at least.

I had prepared a lecture for her about wearing a helmet, but thankfully she had already started wearing one regularly. For those of you who think a helmet can’t help you in a car-bike collision: you’re dead fucking wrong.
