Making sure kids don't grow up like daddy

When I was 16 and had just bought my first car(an '81 Mustang)my Dad called me over one day and told me to take the front wheel off. So I did. Then he told me to take the calipers and brake pads off. So I did. Then he told me to put it all back together and left. That's how you learn. I haven't had a brake shop do brakes on any of my vehicles since. Frankly I can't believe that they charge what they do. Friggin highway robbery.

Anyhow, to learn, you need to explore and tinker. Best way to do it.

Disclaimer: I understand the last sentence opens up a very large can of worms that Syncro will likely exploit.

Canucks vs. Habs

4:30 tonight. The only channel I see that has it on is the TSN Montreal feed. That can't be right can it???? Unless we are going to be able to view that channel for the game??

edit: nevermind. Sportsnet Vancouver HD channel.

Wish I never found it.

missing Sparwood boy returned home

remember the family with the ufo and th ekid went missing and it turns out they were in on it and all they wanted was a reality tv show, i think the kids name was like t rex or tornado or something stupid..

it wouldnt surprise me if it was more of the same.

Agreed. Time to turn the radar to the family I'm afraid.

Kelowna/Vernon August 6/2011

We'll be in Kelowna for BMX Nationals on the 6th. After TheRob Jr. races, we want to ride. I know there is a ton there so the choices will be endless but I wanted some opinions.

We are looking for a Fromme type ride. Nice medium to longish climb with a wicked decent. We could shuttle, but(can't believe I'm saying this)we prefer not to.(what's happened to me)

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

Whip-Off Worlds @ Crabapple Hits

The "winner" of this event will obviously have to be labeled "un-official" seeing as how Davem is hurt and can't compete.

TheRob Jr.'s first visit to the KBR

He's been bugging me for years, so I finally took him today. He's riding a no name from Costco I think. Judging by how he rode, I think I may need to buck up and get something decent.

Dorps! Click the picture.

Needless to say, a pretty proud day for TheRob. Hopefully the start of a great riding career.

Squamish Ride June 11th

Thanks for the suggestions. I did Half Nelson, and then over to the Plunge. Started up Farside for some other stuff, but got creeped out by the cougar sightings.

I'm really looking forward to coming back there.

Squamish - "Crumpit Woods - Cougar sighting with rider, June 10" (Merged)

Scary stuff.

I was in there on Saturday evening. Started up Farside after seeing the sign about the cougar. Got a little ways up and started getting the heebee jeebee's. Turned around and rode out down the logging road.
