On February 4th 2010 I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I was completely stunned. I'm starting the "Scope That Colon! Initiative" to help others feel more comfortable dealing with this disease.

Monday Musings ..or... Why I should Always ride with a CamelBack

Well Spring is here... or at least it was, the weather this week isn't looking all that promising...

As most of you know by now I went in for a scan last week and everything came back clear. That was great news to my ears. As I wrote earlier, I was nervous this time around.
Next step is this Wednesday when I see Dr Davis (oncologist), get some blood work done and find out the next step. It's been a long journey but maybe there is an end in sight.

Got out for a ride yesterday and I set out thinking it was going to be one of those short "too much mud and I'll damage the trail if I ride" type of outings. I couldn't have been more wrong. Conditions were perfect. The Airborne Goblin took everything I threw at it, which isn't much this time of year, and I had a blast. Couple of other riders stopped me and asked some questions about the bike and Airborne in general. This Airborne re-birth could become HUGE.

The only down fall was that, expecting a short ride, I only brought a water bottle and being one that dehydrates very easily, ran out quickly and had to cut the ride short. Next time I'll bring the Camelback...


  1. Sounds like a great way to kick off spring!

  2. What are your usual stomping grounds.

  3. @MMcG... yeah.... I need to keep remembering that

    @Tony.... Spring was here for a bit... crappy weather this week again

    @Mark... I hit up the usual places... Case, WH Res., and Tyler Mill are my usual haunts. I hope to expand a bit more this year but work and family makes it a tad harder, as I'm sure you know.
