Its very good. All local products. Wood fired oven on a trailer. Its a great job only 4-5 hours and I'm outdoors just cooking off pizza.
I try to keep jobs now that don't have a lot of stress involved to them.
So that's what I have been doing for work
Now for my downtime
I ride my bike everywhere
I got a 84 Schwinn World Sport 10 speed about 3 months ago for $100 on Craigslist. The lady had no idea what a deal she was giving me. The thing sat in her basement for the pass 10 yrs so its in great shape. I still have the Trike. I plan on selling in this coming year.
I miss the life on the road but know that I couldn't continue on the way I had before. That thing was just way to much weight and my and my body is hurting because of it. I have never been in so much consistent discomfort in my entire life.
I have dated a couple of ladies but am still looking for the perfect one for me.
I live on a acre of land on the east side of Austin. The guy who owns the land (Moody Andrews) lives in his house in the back and I rent one of four rooms that he has in the house in the front of the property. The guy next door is cool and leaves the gate open to his land so Coop has 2 acres to roam about. Moody also has a full music studio on the land so I am learning to play the drums I have been at it for just over a month and I think I am doing very good.
I have dreams of starting up something of my own here in Austin and have the friends and contacts to do so.
I just need to get my life in order to be able to do something positive.
I have been very homesick and lonely this holiday season.
I miss IA and NYC very much and am planning on going to NYC in May for the 5 boro bike tour. That's 41 miles thru all 5 boros in one day. I did it a couple yrs ago and really want to do it again. I am also planning on taking a month off this summer and pedaling up to IA for Ragbri and see Tyler come home.
Coop is doing well. He likes living out here. I think I might have to get him a pup friend soon. I miss the time that we got to spend together riding around the US. He was thrilled to spend the day out in the cold on Christmas day when we rode around downtown handing out Peanut Butter sandwiches and Hot Tea. I love my dog.
I have Attached a Photo that my friend Azure put together. Its formatted at 8x10 or 16x20 You can have it printed out to hang up or just laugh at it and forget about it. I was going to print them and send them until I did the math.
Its all about me a Coop.
Well that's all
Remember you always have a place to stay in Austin
So as you read some of the post, you hear me speak of Nick. Nick Mullan is my best friend, we have known each other from the wee age of 3. He and I moved to NYC with 2 other guys. He is the home base of my operation. He receives all my mail and he edits and post most of my blog entries. A lot of this wouldn't be as good as it is with out him. Thanks Nick.
