Mistakes I Have Made


(This is the first of a series of 10,000)

Fifty miles into an 80 mile road ride with 5,500 feet of climbing. My friends and I stop at Burger. in Aptos for lunch.

For some unknown reason, I decide that the “Redonkadonk” is suitable sustenance for a long day in the saddle.

For the uninitiated, the Redonkadonk consists of:

 -A hamburger with cheddar cheese

-Lettuce, tomatoes and onions

-A layer of bacon

-Two grilled cheese sandwiches (in place of hamburger buns)

-Topped with a layer of fried SPAM.

Never again.

    I love it! I guess this falls into the category of what was I thinking? The short answer: I wasn’t!

  2. Ohmigosh, Mike,

    Carbo/fat Unload soon after?!

    At first I was thinking “a nice car ride up a mountain with a friend; how nice, although that does look like a lot of food to sit on…”

    THEN, I realized that of course we’re talking BIKing up these 5,500 feet, and my stomach lurched in sympathy with yours.

    May this be the worst of your Bad Ideas – the rest will be not-so-bad!

    In Peace,

    Irene (texting when forced to, but not very sophisticatedly!)

    Mike I know you love spam but “can’t believe you ate the whole thing” Lili

    Mike, we were just talking about Spam the other day, it makes a great sandwich if fried, hold all that other stuff.

  5. Mike, Is there a Spam rule (like the fight club rules)? You talking about spam is making me hungry and I may make a spam & egg sandwich tomorrow as breakfast! 🙂

  6. “Redonkadonk” – sounds like a war operation 🙂
