I tried Fatherland, but its instantly a muder mystery. snore. I stoped a few pages in. Pehrpas that's my fault, I have tendancy to bail on books early if the writing or story starts out weak.

I really liked Enigma by Harris though….

I would include "The Road" by McCarthy.

What I dislike about most sf is the really bad writing. Some authors havegreat sotries, but the writing is terrible. I just can't read such drivel. The Road was a neat book, post apocalyptic survival. And was well written. used an interesting punctuation style, or lack thereof.

Anyone have any well written sf book?

So far the Sheep Look Up has made it to my short list.

I loved all of the Clarke books, up until some of the more recent "cowritten" books. The classics from the 70s are amazing. A smattering of books here and there, but in the end, nothing catches me. I read Gaiman and Stephenson but they just didn't do it. Neverwhere was ok. Cryptonomicron was too long.

I like classic space stuff, not computer or fantasy. Although I did like Johnathan strange and Mr. Norrel. I liked the accurate Victorian setting.

With that in mind, any reccomendations?

MEC Bike Service Experience

I dunnop, perhaps you can get the same issue at an LBS but I haven't.

what gets me about MEC is, in my experience, the consitent "holier than thou" attitude from the staff. I can't stand that.

digital camera advice

I bought a used G7 as a P[HTML_REMOVED]S to my Nikon D40 DSLR.

I find it great! although just too big to be pocketable. For that, go with the LX3.

What a weekend

Yep, conditions were great. I loved the cold of the last two weekends, had one of my best days….

and I would also like to send some praise to the trail crew, but for the lesser known, lesser discussed trails, like Too Tight, ahh so quiet and enjoyable. ..nice work!

the big lines get all the press but I love all the other trails…

New Cove G-Spot

I like it, but c'mon, please give up this lame naming convention… a new design was a good time for a new name!

Garbonzo zone closed for the season?

I too enjoyed the snow and freeze dried trails up top. Nothing like being the first to break the frozen puddles on Original Sin! It was so magical up there. Had my best day ever at the park.

Can't wait for next weekend.
