Thanksgiving Plans & Being Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving a few hours early folks. Here is what some of the Salsa crew are up to this Thanksgiving and some of what we are thankful for. We hope you have a good day.

David: EFred and I are riding singletrack on singlespeeds this weekend, and I'm making Maple Apple Crunch. I'm thankful for having one gallon of pure Wisconsin maple syrup to carry me through the winter and spring.

Burton: First time smoking a turkey. Going to brine it overnight and hot smoke it with hickory and maple. We'll see how it turns out. Thankful for riding my La Cruz 100 miles on Friday, mix of road and gravel. And that the kids are healthy.

Jeff: We are having a Pakistani family and a few college students who don't have any family here over for Thanksgiving dinner. I am thankful for faith, family, and friends.

Kid: Stuffing ourselves with stuffing at sister-in-law's and then my parent's house. I'm thankful for family.

Mark: Hopefully I'll be enjoying a nice Thanksgiving dinner with good friends from work, but I'm nervous we may end up at the hospital! My wife is expecting our first child and even though she's not due for two more weeks, the doctors think the baby might come a little early! Very thankful for family.

Bobby: Whirlwind Thanksgiving tour. Grandma D's house on the Dahlberg side at noon and 'Red' Grandma's on the lady's side at 4pm. Two turkey dinners, two rounds of pie. Throw in a little football (watching the Pack get destroyed b Detroit of course) and it'll be a crazy afternoon...and a definite food coma by 6pm. I'm first and foremost thankful for my family and all the many blessings that we often take for granted everyday; food on the table, a roof over our heads, and having each other close and safe.

With those thoughts we bid you Happy Turkey Day.
-Kid

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mike Riemer

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.

I give thanks to Salsa for putting out some great 2010 product, and I put forth the following (a but loco, I acknowledge) 2 wishes for 2011:

1.  'Salsa Titanium' (Taiwanese sourced) Salsa Ala Carte Complete with a mid-range, 100mm Rock Shox suspension fork and SRAM X.9 group.  Salsa components and wheels to round it off, including the 1st ever Salsa Shaft Ti post!  Cane Creek 100 headset (silver). The custom Ti market gets a sudden, severe case of flex in the knees!

2. 'Salsa Carbon'(sourced from Toray and/or Mitsubishi) Triunfo Complete (a new road race model) with SRAM Force compact (50/34) group and SRAM S30 AL wheels.  Seatstays more heavily manipulated than Podio's. Salsa components to round it off, including the 1st ever Salsa Shaft Carbon post (perhaps sourced from Alpha Q?).  Cane Creek 100 headset (black).  Cerv?lo gets a terrifying, terminal case of brain fatigue!

Yes, we're Salsa Cycles, and we're sending a big "?HOLA!" to the 21st century, and firing a huge salvo at our competitors!

Ride and Smile and Succeed!
