    *I admit to having seen Creed in concert twice...The first time I was actually there to see Sevendust**, with whom they were touring, and the second was at a Winter Olympic medal ceremony in SLC, so the Creed show was coincidental. Judge me all you want the shame no longer haunts me.

    **holy f&*k I just looked it up and realized that I suppressed the memory of Nickleback playing this concert as well, although I absolutely had never heard of them at the time and remember thinking that they totally sucked.
    I have Coeur d'Alene on my list of places to visit. It looks absolutely gorgeous. What's the best time of year to hike / bike ?

    May/June are pretty good. Late July and August can get pretty hot (like, over 100) for short stretches. I've never ridden it, but the Route of the Hiawatha is supposed to an awesome ride. The Centennial trail is also good and I've never seen more than a couple people on it. For hiking, Tubbs Hill is a super easy one that's right in town. Mineral Ridge is also good and close by. Further out, places like Revett Lake are fun day trips.

    What a great ride and way to see DC. I had technical difficulties (broken chain) plus was spent after some of the hills. Still, I think I hit 35 or so states and 53 miles... my longest ride so far. Fun to ride with old friends (early) and make new friends (later).
    Pics to come once I learn how to upload em.

    Lore has it that REM had some really bad experience in Rockville MD....

    Coeur d'Alene was the place where I first tried to ride in the mountains. I was still a smoker back then, in the 1990's. I didn't get very far, panting and gasping my way back down in defeat.
