Ice Biking

5AM. Its 10 degrees with a windchill of -1. The wind is from the east at 8mph. At 10 degrees, a 20MPH wind feels like -9 degrees. That's pretty intimidating. Time for reflection...

No Tarl, it is time for a freaking MRI. I fear you may have a brain tumor that is restricting your ability to think clearly.

I just got new snowboots. Ozark Trail boots from Walmart for $33, alledgely field tested down to -40d. I think that person was not in contact with cold metal and constant wind. Aside from that, I stayed pretty toasty.
