Day Two of the RV Remodel

Homeless, homeless. Remember the album Paul Simon did with Ladysmith Black Mambazo? I forget which song it was, but the chorus was "homeless, homeless". And thus, that is the song that is stuck in my head today. We're staying at the airport Hampton Inn. We have a nice room with a balcony. It's good to have the outside space for the mountain bikes.
We forgot to get a bicycle tire pump out of the RV so yesterday we went by ABE to get CO2 cartridges in case airing up tires was required. Spencer the shop dog was there, just cuter than a bug. He's less standoffish than he was last year, which is good. ABE has a cool thing they do, they have bike saddles one can test drive and then bring back. Since I am always on the hunt for something better than what I have, I signed up for the program.

This is the view from the balcony.

We went by the RV to pick up a few more things this morning. They were installing the new convection microwave. That thing weighs 75 pounds. It's just a brute. It was not going quietly into its new home. There was much pushing and then looking at the back of it.

We had a good ride at Fantasy Island. We did part of the Burro Pit Loop, Bo's Loop (which I rode well), and then Lone Cactus. Riding the trails full of loose round rocks at McDowell Regional Park at Thanksgiving has greatly improved my round rock performance. I cleaned all of the steep switch backs on Bo's today, which was very good.
We have washed our bike clothes in the hotel laundry and they are now out on the balcony drying.

I think we'll mountain bike again in the morning and then go see how close they are to being done. I strongly expect that we'll be back there again with the RV next week.
