MacAskill Solo Ride

I like Danny MacAskill. He talks funny... he bikes funny too.

Here's my favorite of his videos.

Quick note: The Jezabels, who do the second song on this video will be in DC at the Rock and Roll Hotel on June 18th. Should be pretty good.

Morel Mushrooms And A Bike

I found tonight's dinner at lunch today! These yellow morels like to pop up where dead Elm Trees can be found usually near Tulip Poplars. Remember, when you see a mushroom in the woods you are only seeing the fruit of a massive mycelial(?) network. 

Oh yeah! I saw this bad ass Jones with a truss fork too.

All in all it was a good lunch break.

Girvin Sighting!

I saw this proflex on Sunday. The legends are true, mine isn't the last one. 

This is a Yuba Mundo with a copper sissy bar. Very cool.

CamelBak Relay Review

It's no secret, I a fan of quite a few of CamelBak's products. Not all, but quite a few. A little while ago I was lucky enough to receive a CamelBak Relay to test out. The Relay is Camelbak's first venture into the home water filtration market and it's about time. I only have my Brita to compare it to and there isn't much of a fight here. The Relay is a vast improvement over my Brita.

The first improvement I noticed is the speed. With the Brita, you fill the reservoir and wait for 7 minutes for the water to filter. This doesn't seem like a big deal but if you have to do it over and over those 7 minutes add up. The Relay filters the water as fast as you can fill it. It also filters the water again when you pour it into your glass which can't be bad.

Perhaps the best improvement over the Brita is there's no black shit in my glass! The only downside I've seen so far is the filters are more expensive but the last twice as long so it evens out.

In closing, this image pretty much sums up my first impressions of the Camelbak Relay.

Bottom line: Highly Recommended. 
Buy It If you use any another pitcher water filter product.
Don't Buy Them If you already have one.
