I'm a busy guy. Between hanging out with the family, bike riding, dog walking, building and launching spacecraft, world-travel, watching bike races and everything in-between, you'll find it all here. Come on in and pull up a chair, you'll find NOTHING too inane to discuss in my lair.
Welcome to the Asylum!

LIVESTRONG Davis Challenge Century ride
Looking clockwise from the left that's Fatty (checking something on his phone), Rob and Dave, then Greg, David (davidh@marin from the comments at Fatty's), his son Rune, his daughter Sage (you only see the top of her head...SORRY Sage!) and Lisa (aka the Hammer) sitting in the middle. Just a nice afternoon to hang out in the shade, temp is in the low to mid 90's.
Here's Allison getting her award, which was just after she gave a WONDERFUL acceptance speech!
(it was the best of the night. Seriously!)
This year rather than have Fatty give a another speech, he was just called up to sit on a stool and chat (and answer questions) from Chris at LIVESTRONG. (btw: Fatty actually won TWO awards again this year, Captain of the Team Champion winners, AND he was also the Individual Champion,
having earned more $ than any other person).
At the start line, from the right (yes, I know I did that backwards) that's Rob (Zeeter), Jeremy, myself, Greg, Steve, and sadly I can't remember the name of the last guy...anybody? I am so ashamed!
At one point while we were all milling about, I slipped my bike behind Gregs, then pulled out a short piece of rope I had brought along and tied our bikes together (unbeknowst to Greg). I then said rather loudly: "OK, I'm READY to RIDE! He turned around and boy was that a great look on his face!
(Photo credit to Rob, thanks my friend! My shot was badly blurred).
And here is the triumphant Houston family posing for the press! That's Sage, Rune, Allison and David.
And just so you know, they are the NICEST people you could ever hope to meet!
Our Fatty-Family is CHOCK FULL of people like this! That's what really makes all this so special!
