2011 SMR 33 and Special Request

Sloppy today - it's been raining the last couple days but it looked like it was done.
Not really very cold either, but still needed full jacket and tights.

Some guy passed JB and me near Moss Landing and we figgered him to be a flare.
He pulled over at the top of the Bump to recover... looked like your typical tachycardia and anoxia.  I pulled out my cell phone and "checked my messages" when I went past him.... LULZ.

JB went home from Junction and I went up to Juniper.  Not many folks on the road this morning.

Product Review:  Clif Bar Peppermint Stick flavor
This thing gets a 10 on the Diablo Scott Energy Bar Rating Scale... that is all.


I've given up trying to protect my Columbus SL decal... farewell little dove.

Juniper was totally fogged up... visibility was like an arm's length.

OK, here's my attempt at capturing the same scenery as this 1984 photo of Eric Heiden at Chainbuster in a race:

Probably not the best weather for a re-creation.

OK, and now for the Special Request:
I am participating in MOvember - grow a moustache for a month and collect money for men's cancer:

The Movember Effect: Awareness & Education, Survivorship, Research
The funds raised in the US support prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Together, the three channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research. 

Movember 1:  Clean-shaven.

Movember 7:  I decide to have a little fun with this.

Movember 12:  The envy of Mo-Bros everywhere.

Adam arranged for a "corporate team" of moustache growers at work;  when we started, there were two guys in the office who were fighting cancer... now there's only one.  RIP Gregg.

OK, go HERE and donate $5 or something.  Remember it's a corporate team so keep the comments professional!  And thanks.

Pretty close on the recreation - but that's exactly where it was! Looking at the slope of the hill in the background. :)
