260 Hash House a Go Go.

If you get to Vegas you need to go to the Hash House A GO GO. The place is incredible. The food was very good and huge. And in that order. As you can see from this photo Susan is not quite sure what to do with the Pork Tender Loin Benedict. Susan took one look at my Corned beef hash and asked to trade. I barely finished half of the Benedict.
Aah the Corned Beef Hash. It was a thing of beauty. Susan did not even come close to putting a dent in this delight.
Oh and of course a bloody. Lets just say that someone needed a little pick me up after a late night of people watching on the strip.
It was so good we went back Sunday morning and had round two. I nearly finished the Sausage Hash.

247 Lunch.

This diet is tough. Susan helped me out by giving me too many steamed green beans.

248. I hit the plateau.

Ever feel like you are looking at this scale in the morning? ME too. I had a couple of days where i did not lose any weight. Given that I am still eating about 500 calories a day I could not believe that I was not losing any weight. Luckily this morning when I got up I had dropped 1.5 lbs. I am sure my metabolism has shut down at this point but I am still hoping to get down below 240 by next Friday morning. Then I will blow it all to hell with my trip to Vegas. It will be good to be off the diet. I am losing my sanity because I have not been on the bike since September 11th. To say I am Jonesing for a ride would be an understatement.

250 New sport? Trail surfing.

Jamie Erich and I did a bit of trail work on Saturday. I think we have created a new sport. Trail surfing. The new trail is still fairly rough so we took a 100 + pound sewer grate and attached it to the 4 wheeler. We connected a rope to the back end and Erich and Jamie took turns surfing the grate while I drove down the trail. It seems to do a nice job of smoothing out things.
The trail is still a bit rough but it seems to do a good job. We just need everyone to ride the trail and it should be in very good shape by spring. So if you get a chance go climb Clark's and then just before you go into the parking area turn almost 180 degrees left and go down the trail. I guarantee you will enjoy the trail even if it is a bit rough right now. To get back out just ride the old pipeline trail back up and then take the Brock's point connector over to Ghost falls and let er rip.

Have fun and let me know if you want to go surfing.

253. I booked the reservations.

We are headed to Vegas to see Utah play UNLV on the 17th. A short two weeks away. Somehow I need to get down to 240 by then because the diet is shot and killed starting on the 17th. I need to lose a pound a day to get there. I think I can still do it. I have not been as good about dieting this time as I should. See my last post if you have questions. However I still think I can get down to 240. The 4 weeks starting on the 17th will be rough. Travel to Vegas and then having 3 home games complete with tailgate parties will make things interesting. Sundays are going to have to be Century rides if I am going to keep the weight down. Well maybe not but long rides for sure.

We are going to stay at the Tropicana. Susan really just wants some time by the pool and with our recently cold weather she is excited.
I on the other hand am looking forward to some of the food that Adam takes on in Man vs. Food.

I do not think that Burrito has a chance.
