I was racing in the 80's during the Lemond era, then went to law school and got fat and slow. Raced against George Hincapie as a junior. He was fast even back then. Started my own practice in 2002, met my wife in 2003, and got back into riding in 2005 and raced again from 2007-2009. Two kids, being involved in a huge wreck in July 2009, and contracting Lyme disease in late August 2009 made me hang it up racing wise. Still try to get out and ride some here and there to keep in shape because this sitting in a chair all day is...................... Wish you were closer to the DC area so we could do some riding.
Let me know how that Drolet Escape works for you. I am still kicking around what stove I want to use for my 500sf office space. Been all over the place with this project. Thought I was settled on the Blaze King Sirocco 20.2 for the 20 hour burn time, but was talked out of it by the people that were going to do the install. Was going to go with a Regency F1500 cat stove for the 8 hour burn time, but then figured I might as well just go with the Regency F1150 non-cat version and fill the stove every 5 hours or so. Then, I came across Ashley and now Drolet. Changed my mind today back to the Blaze King Sirocco 20.2, but still not entirely set on it.
The company that came out and gave me a proposal for the install in my office garage has ghosted me since then. So, it looks like I will be doing my own install come the spring. Just scared to death of the roof pitch, but I am going to order some rope and some hooks for a ladder and get this done. Already have the safety vest from hanging some Ring cameras on the awning of the house on the 2nd level.
Just need to figure out which stove to go with.
