What the hell happened to ya????

Well that's a really good question. The answer, I don't know.
Last few months have kind of been a wash bike and build wise.
One thing I've learned about TIGing, is that you have to practice quite often, and I haven't had the time (or maybe the desire) to just sit and run beads.
A couple of times it's gotten to the point of me wanting to sell the welder and just move on (you all saw all the "what bike?" type of posts I've been laying out on MTBR).
Personality wise I have to big problems in regards to welding.
One is that I have absolutely no patience. I want to be able to weld yesterday, not down the road.
Second is that I'm really bad at dealing with tedium. This is a huge downfall that's come back to bite me in the ass in the past.
Well after long quite walks along the beach, hitting up some cross races, and discussing things with the boss lady, I've decided to keep plugging away.
We're working on a schedule that will allow me to get in the garage earlier than "after the kids go to bed" and maybe even get me in some training time.
Training time? Yep, you heard that right... Root 66 is going to feel the wrath off Toddre this year, too.
No new bike, just run the trusty Inbred with some new bling to be ordered up soon.
So 2010 is is here, new attitude, new rides and hopefully a few hand built frames.
Wish me luck!

P.S.... I promise to post and learn how to use a digital camera too, this year...
