Crash, bang, kiss

As predicted, the weather is kind of crappy, with temperatures down to 50 F (10 C), blustery winds, and, of course, rain. That little wipeout put a spanner in the works: I'm still trying to revive the GPS unit (the buttons don't work); the valve of the front wheel's tire tube tore. i.e. it is unpatchable. In addition, the circa 1996 Specialized MTB pump can't pump up to the new 26' x 1" tires' 120 psi working pressure, necessitating the purchase of another pump. The hard cider isn't helping me make sense of the map, but it's sure as hell making me feel better :-P

How do the locals put it?

Cheers, mate!
