    Considering that we average around 70 member's turning in results, you are a big part of our scores. I personally want to Thank You for that! Along with everyone else that Crunches for us, regularly!!

    Together we have beat much bigger teams, together we are a giant killer! :D

    I am hoping for a stellar Challenge! Let's get this thing fired up!!:clap:

    Alright kiddos!

    We passed the bar and jumped a couple spaces to 19th!! :toast:

    3,117,384

    I am hoping after a day or so, we will climb up closer to 4 million!!
    On that note, I planned to dump my cache, this morning. Didn't happen, until a few moments ago, because I couldn't seem to get out of bed! I barely managed to get to work by 11!! I, apparently, was tired!

    Anyways, tomorrows personal score might be enough for a Top 30 on the Team. Might, seeing as everybody is, supposed to, turning up the volume! We'll see. :D

    Proof of our, climb...
    [​IMG]

    Coffee Shop is kicking me out! Gotta go. Perhaps later, when I get downtown, I will add some more...:clap:
    :lovetpu:

    Ok, turns out they don't shut down the WiFi, after close. So, as long as it doesn't rain, I can sit out on the patio here, for a bit!!

    Almost the same number as yesterday!

    3,117,076

    And, we are in the same spot, as yesterday.
    So, not all bad. Above 3 mil and in the Top 20.

    I was hoping for a bit of a jump. But, being a Holiday weekend...could be a tough challenge, point-wise.

    [​IMG]

    Nice work TPU Crunchers!

    :D

    Sorry so late, went to a fresh new bar to try out the Wine selection. So far, two good one's, one of them, a B+, 90 point (in my opinion), wine. There a couple more I want to try...Maybe next week. ;)

    Anyways, time for bed. I don't have to work in the morning, or at all Saturday, so i don't have to get up but, I feel like I need to go to bed! Long day, plus 4 wines( I also had a flatbread, garlic, basil, feta cheese and yummy fresh tomato...awesome!) 2 bad, two so-so, and 2 good to great.

    Not a bad night. Felt no pain on the ride home! :laugh:

    Meanwhile, it's shower and bed. Have a great night and a Pleasant tomorrow!!

    Man, I could get used to this!!

    3,407,514


    Yet another day over 3 million!!! :clap:

    Despite our constant +3 Mil days, our competition is also ramping up. Therefore, we slipped a spot, to 19th.

    No matter, we are still solidly in the TOP 20, again!!

    :D

    How about some cool pictures?

    Another day? Yep! We have achieved something here that I am stunned to see! Challenge over and we maintained a 3 mil mark this long!! WAY TO GO!!

    3,100,956

    If we can keep a 3 million per day deal going? We will be in the TOP 20, everyday! The UK team can't seem to break that wall so, even a straight up 3 is 20th!

    That's where we sit today, 20th. It's where this TEAM belongs!!( that didn't come out right, we belong IN the Top 20, not 20th. ;) )

    Very nice!!

    3,169,873

    This is best thing that has happened today, more on that later, way to go TEAM TPU!!!

    [​IMG]

    Another consistent day above the 3 mil mark!! I am so proud!!:p

    OK, so, I crashed on my bicycle today. Bike is ok, had to replace the pedals, busted right through two solid half inch arms of aluminum on my left pedal, the one I landed on. I ended up, after doing a self service cleaning, at the bike shop, going to the VA. Three loose stitches and about ten "Steri-Strips", a 3M butterfly product. Loose, because the skin on the front of the calf, where I conveniently placed my right shin on my front chainwheel, is so tight.

    I have a 10 day antibiotic regimen, with diarrhea (Bonus!!), to follow. Gee, what fun! :(

    Anyways, there will be pain but, I will live. I also managed to not faceplant, or even touch my head on the ground! :clap:

    So, no concussion, this time! (Or, broken teeth!)

    I hit an oily spot, a wet oily spot. It had just stopped raining. This past week, I rode in the rain three times, no problems. My tires are great and gave me the confidence to take this corner, as I had done 3 times this week. This time though, perhaps a slightly different line, a little more speed or a new oil slick...Whatever it was, I get a gnarly new scar!

    Anyways, have a GREAT Night!! I am beat and sore. I am hitting the sack!!

    Ouch! :eek: Hope you heal up soon! Try to eat yogurt and rice (not at the same time :p) to help with the wonderful side effects from the antibiotics... helps me.

    Great job Team! :toast:

    I am a constant yogurt eater, so, no problems there! LOL. Actually, I just finished a Chobani, from the coffee shop, when I opened up TPU, to find all these well wishers!! Thanks!!

    I am still a bit sore, all-over, because I am no longer a young buck that can jump up from a car crash and laugh! No, it's a long string of expletives, knowing full well the length of pain time will follow, due to a stupid mistake, or accident. :laugh:

    It must have looked spectacular. Two cars and 5 passersby stopped to ask if I was ok! One guy even used his bike as a barricade to traffic. I think they were all amazed at the loud cursing and then me popping up and grabbing my bike, while bleeding from multiple spots. Then swearing some more when I saw MY PEDAL WAS BUSTED!

    :laugh:

    I got some new pedals, fortunately I was a mere three blocks from the local bike shop. Rode home, changed clothes and caught a bus to the VA. The check-in Nurse asked if she could see the wound. At that point it was a messy, bloody wound with a fancy looking chunk of hanging flesh. She was a little taken aback when she claimed, "Yea, were gonna have to sew that up." LOL.

    I thought, to work in the Emergency room, you were not to be jumpy. Fortunately, for me, I am not fazed by the site of blood, or gorey wounds. But imagine someone a bit less comfortable witnessing an ER nurse freak. LOL.

    Anyways, Thanks guys! I will prevail, albeit with a little soreness. No worries.

    Damn @Arjai, glad your okay man!!! That could have been real ugly and I feel your pretty lucky to be honest. Hopefully all the wounds heal okay and no issues with infection man.

    As has been said several times, get well soon brother! :toast:

    Dude I feel your pain. Been riding a hardtail for 20 yrs or more. Rear suspension has come a long way but I'm old school I guess.:) To many times I've been on a trail in the middle of nowhere thinking nope I'm not gonna make it this time. There is imho nothing better than getting back up after one of those moments. Most cyclists live by the no rehabilitation rule though no matter how much it actually hurt. Ride on:rockout:

    I ride a '74 Schwinn Varsity with one gear, 39/16, to work 5-6 times a week and around town on my days off.

    I have a Hardtail MTN bike, 1990 Trek Police bike. Heavily modified over time. I rode that 114 miles to Winona, a couple weeks ago. The pain I have now, is in no way comparable to the level of discomfort I endured on that ride!

    So, in comparison, with that and other crashes I have had, I came out of this in good shape!! :D

    See! I thought as much:) :toast:
    Edit: 99Giant atx 890 is my ride. Got it just before disc brakes became the norm. Man I love that bike. The crank creeks on the down peddle but but I don't love her any less for it. Can you post a pic of your 74?

    Not the best picture. It was taken with my old phone, outside my local water hole, around dusk.

    Only thing original on it, seat post, seatpost clamp, kickstand...and Frame. ;)

    So, another great day!! My Thanks to @[Ion] for firing up the Crunchers at school! (I am assuming that is what has happened)

    Now, I am wondering if @Vinska has the same deal with the local school, as last year?

    Combined with our new server board('s) with @t_ski , and the new member's and their uber machina's...we could top the 4 Mil mark, on occasion!

    As for Today, we did good!

    3,252,365

    3.2 Mil is good in two ways, maybe more...

    [​IMG]

    That's a shizzle ton of Science done, we jumped into 18th place and that puts, approximately, counting the Dutch Cows, 13 Countries behind us!! LOVE, LOVE IT!!

    My fault (50%)... my i7-970 rig is down :( It most likely just needs to be restarted due to a power outage on Friday pm where it's at but I can't get to it until after 9am on Monday

    That rig would have added about 50k WCG points to today's total :banghead:
