no harm no foul

this is the worst of it from yesterday.

the only casualty that i know of.

i took a peg to the calf.

so the whole "force it into gear" thing didn't work so well for me. heh.

the best part of the whole time was when my friend jeff and i were trying to load the monster into the back of his truck. (thankfully he's a contractor and had a pickup and the all important 2x6!)
we assess the sichyation and decide we need a third to hold the bike when the front wheel reaches the bed while someone jumped up into the bed to guide it the rest of the way.
we're in the parking lot of the black african american history museum at this point, so jeff asks a school bus driver there to pick up kids from a field trip.
the dude (white, in an ironic sort of way) initially says no and then gets a conscience i guess because 2 minutes later he's out the door and over to help us.
dude was big as andre the giant, thankfully.
