    Default Midnight Saddles: A Howling Good Time

    With the full moon being out, I declare this instance of Midnight Saddles to be:

    Midnight Saddles: A Howling Good Time!

    Thank you, again, Steve O, for leading us on a very entertaining route through the darkest parts of DC! We also checked out the brand-spanking-new Klingle Valley Trail, did some very-early-exploration of not-yet-open-it's-totally-legal-to-ride-on bicycle infrastructure, and made Karen smile as we went to the highest point in DC. We also did much more, but I'll leave that to the other lycanthropes on the ride to tell.

    (left) we did some howling at the moon en route to the Lincoln Memorial; (right) drivers on Rock Creek Parkway apparently had literally chewed up this pedestrian sign

    So, that means we have either a Judd Offutt or Steve Lumberjack; which is it?

    ...the moment you typed that, you should've known the can of worms you were opening

    Offutt was the name that Steve O assumed when he turned evil. I think anyone can look at us and see that he is a horribly disfigured version of me.

    I'm surprised, then, that you haven't noticed Steve O's shameless self-promotion...
