Yes.  Athletic clothes buying tip: Don't buy all your gear when you're the fittest you've been since college.  When you have a period of less-than-fit, you will literally feel the pinch.

Due in part to the less-than-fitness and the continuing less-than-stellar weather, we decided to ride the park loop road around Acadia.  The main part of the loop is about 20 miles.  We cut in and did a bit of riding on the carriage roads.  Originally, we bought 28 cm tires to aid this, but after 40 min of fumbling I learned that my front wheel is out of true and the rear derailleur hanger keeps me from mounting anything other than tiny race tires.  Well f me very much.

The carriage roads turned out to be of such fine quality crushed stone that it was actually better riding than most of NJ.  So f NJ very much.  We encountered a giant snapping turtle.  To make him feel at home, we snapped some pictures of him.  Do you see what I did there?  Wow, not seeing the sun is sapping me all my powers of snark and humor (for the record, I actually think my snark is humor, so there's that).
