Free stuff and a realization

Spring cleaning has taken a double meaning as I'm moving soon...and this is to your benefit, at least if you're in the area and need some random bike stuff.  There's some goodies in front of my house, everything in front of the camper is free for the taking, come on over and help yourself.  Among the items is a road wheelset, and Ultegra 170mm crankset, rollers w/ resistance unit, and lots of tires - both 26" and 29".

Now for the realization.  I woke up yesterday with an understanding about GLR, which simply put, is that the reasons I want to do it don't have anything to do with anyone else.  It really doesn't have anything to do with racing.  It's hard to explain.  But one thing is for sure:  I'd rather do it completely solo than in a race setting.  That doesn't mean I won't try to go fast cause of course I will.  It is simply more natural and agreeable to make a solo TT effort out of it. 

I was quite surprised to gain clarity on this thing that doesn't make a lot of sense...but that GLR route is my solo quest for '07.
