Rights of Passage

So I got signed up for the Tour de Okinawa some time ago, we all drove up to Nago together and it was really easy. Now I just have to wait for the info package to come in the mail, they told me it would come sometime in October. The thing is, it's now the 17th and I have yet to get it. Now I understand that it's going to take a little while because of the whole FPO mailing address and it's quirks (the package will have to go from here to California and then back to here). I'm just hoping that I don't have to go to the Nago office come early November to tell them that I have yet to get my info.

Anyway, on a different note, Bicycling Magazine posted this Rites of Passage blog like thing, and I thought it would be interesting to use it as one of this quiz like things that you always see on MySpace/Facebook and just to sort of catalog my own experiences. So here goes:

01. Realizing that the hill isn’t in the way; it is the way.
  • I commute by (race) bike to work everyday, of course the hill is the way, it's almost a mile long and at a 6% grade for some of it. But I wouldn't go any other way (except maybe the way with the bigger, longer hill).
