And my final entry, capturing the essence of Freezing Saddles
I had a bunch of others I didn't enter: Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas seasonal ones that I never quite felt the mood for. Wore the cool elk socks at the FSLNHPP, but didn't enter them.

I fell asleep before being able to post these, because I have so many banked! (Plus I'm home sick today so I slept in late...) I hope you can accept these Sunyata, I worked hard to put this collection together, I just have not been able to get online much lately. (I have the Strava links to prove they were legitimately taken during BAFS 2017):

Final push part 2:
#10 - President's Day, Anchors Away!

Strava Ride - Feb 20
#11 - Return to the "Capital Wasteland"
I'd spent the weekend in Boston at a videogame convention, and this was my first ride back. These socks are in reference to Fallout 3, a game that takes place in a post-apocalyptic DC
Strava Ride - March 13
#12 - "When Irish Bikes are Riding..."
St. Patty's Day socks, worn all day: on the commute ride, at work, at a friend's birthday party in Ad-Mo, the trip home where I beat everyone back who took the metro by 30-40 minutes by biking... Luck of the Irish!
Strava Ride - March 17
#13 - A Meditation on Precipitation
I was going to wear these for the miserable weather that greeted me as I got ready for the Vasa ride, but decided they might be frowned upon at a family-friendly event, so I wore them to the final party at HP instead!
Strava Ride - March 19
There were some other days when my sock-game was on, but I forgot to take a photo. As your opening post meme says, the struggle is real.
