My friend and reader, Martin, corrected me on the purpose of the pipeline along Pinnacle Valley Road. It is a sewer line, not a water line as I had stated. I'll correct the copy below.
Internet service at the JBar Bunker has been temporarily disrupted. I'm posting this from the public library just so that you know I'm not ignoring my self-imposed duties. I have a post or two ready and there is much going on within the world of Protour cycling, and I'm gathering material for articles. Obviously, I can post from here but don't have ready access to my photos, etc. Comcast should have me fully functional again in a couple of days.
