Sometimes things just don’t work out

So, the job that I’d really been expecting to get, I didn’t. Seems I didn’t sell myself well enough or they didn’t read my resume well enough. Maybe it was a combination of both. The apparent reason that I didn’t get the job was not having enough quality control experience. What did I do onsite with a multi-million dollar project? Anyway. As you can see, I’m not too thrilled about the result. The woman that won the position is fantastic, I just felt that I was the best candidate for the job.


On to other, happier, things. Here are a couple of good photos from SS Italy where we had a fantastic time as I’d previously mentioned.

Kera made and gave away a bag to the winner of the Pixie Cross. Notice the colors.


Some cool and interesting costumes. That mustache is real.


Master of ceremonies Stefano looking happy in a chair. The smile is genuine. He’s a fantastic guy!

Our friend Ed scored Kera one of those cool cycling hats from Stefano as well.


Friend and teammate Ed looking a little too….something.


Kera made me suffer up this hill for this photo. So appreciate it!


Subbaqqui Rules!

Unfortunately, we won’t be going to Zurich for SS Switzerland this weekend. So, if the weather cooperates, we might just have to do our own ride around here.

Munich is absolutely nuts right now as Oktoberfest is going on and there are people here from around the world. Everywhere you go it feels like rush hour. It’s rather strange. Kera’s been once and will go at least once more with work. I’m not sure whether I’ll end up going this year or not. Due to a FUBAR situation, I ended up selling my ticket to go tonight.

Till later.

What does one say here. Hmmm. First, I'm a "trailing spouse". Kera, my wife, works hard and keeps us afloat. I work... not nearly as hard and contribute enough to let us have fun. Oh, I also make bags for bikepacking under the name of SpoK Werks I'm an English Teacher (English as a Second Language) here in Germany. It's an amazingly rewarding thing to do. I'd never have believed it until I'd tried it. I also make bikepacking bags under the name SpoK Bags. Just search for us in Flickr. We're adventure nuts (i.e. cycling, travel, life, friends, etc.). We attempt to live each day as fully as we can manage.

  1. We’ve been around a bit. I’ve just been working as has Kera. I’m not sure what happened with my last update as the message didn’t get out that I’d updated. Seems to be working again.

    Oktoberfest in Durango? Hmmm. Suspicious. Although, much cheaper to travel to.

  2. They should rename Oktoberfest to Drunkfest Durango. It was hilarious. We only caught the tail end of it, since we’d finished the Durango Fall Blaze Century and were drinking FREE beer there. 🙂 The highlight of Oktoberfest? Watching a drunk kid break a piece of wood with his head. He had already attempted breaking it with his foot, karate style. Then his friend tried breaking it over his knee. No luck. Matt and some others suggested the kid try using his head. It worked! It’s amazing all the stupid things you do when you are young and drunk.
