Yeah that might make more sense. I wasn't leaning in that direction because my bike needs a bunch of work but that will be much cheaper. Just a PIA that I was procrastinating but it has to be done sometime.

The other week while I was getting a fishing license*, my wife started looking at bows and decided she'd like to try archery again. Both of us are in the "took archery 25 years ago at summer camp, haven't done it since" cohort. But we discovered that there's an archery range only about a mile and a half from where we live, so the other night we went and took a class. I used one of the range's compound bows, just because I'd never gotten to use one before and I was curious about it. And it was a lot of fun and we're planning to go back soon. My wife's already gotten a bow and the various accoutrements; nothing fancy, but perfectly serviceable.

Compound bows are great for hunting because you can hold the draw a long time, but for fun I think a modern recurve bow is where it's at.

Pet peeve of mine, the missing footnote. Sometimes don't see it on packaging but the interwebs are lousy without it.

Appropriately enough, I meant to say "I got nothing".
