    Trekkie Dad's DL Pictures from Oct 2-4 (Gay Days)

    Not going to be a lot of commentary here, just pictures from our recent trip to DL. One of our primary goals was to meet up with some MiceChat friends, and Gay Days is one of the best times to do so.

    Jimmie and I arrived Saturday afternoon, but not in time for the noon meet. We met up with a few for the Pirates ride at three, though, but the group broke up shortly after. So my first real chance to take pictures came with the Sunday noon meet:

















    Have bicycle, will ride. Finished 2012 with 10,089 miles, 683 hours, and 482,000 feet of elevation gain.
    2013: 201 rides, 8171 miles, 544 hours, 480K feet.

    It took a while to herd everyone over to the wharf at DCA for lunch, but we managed to get some tables together:

    While we didn't participate in the afternoon's Eye Spy in DCA, I did take some pictures of the activity as it unfolded:











    And here's the winning team putting the final touches on their entry:


    That ends the Gay Days portion of our trip. What follows are pictures from the same weekend.

    Here's a few shots from "it's a small world" that I took on Saturday not long after we arrived:

    Re: Trekkie Dad's DL Pictures from Oct 2-4 (Gay Days)

    The following Monday, we were lucky to run into the first MiceChatters we had ever met: Earkid and her hubby. (Actually, we met them before we became MiceChatters.)


    We got a chance to catch up and then went our separate ways. Later, we encountered a little rain:

    A good time to do dark rides


    It's really hard to get good shot with no flash and a camera phone in a place as dark as Pirates:




    The only bike I saw all day


    Still a little damp






    Día de los muertos




    Our son Spencer was with us that day. He's riding in the back with "mom."


    But "mom" wouldn't ride the TOT. We're in the back row, on the left.


    One more thing. I finally got past level three in Buzz. Quite an accomplishment for a guy who normally avoids playing video games.

    I'm sorry we missed the meet. We were invited to Club 33, so had to skip the Micechat events
