I am Baughman
On cycling and on the road
I don’t know how you got here, but welcome to this personal web site. Shake up a martini and pull up a chair. Putting up a personal web site is a little like inviting your neighbors over for wine and cheese, and mentioning as they arrive that you intend to show them your vacation pictures. If you are a cyclist, avoid the last four (personal) links at the bottom of the page. The cycling pages here (links below) are text and pictures illustrating some eccentric views on cycling and the road, as well as bike and trike design, maintenance and modifications. Recumbent modifications entail an iterative and expensive process, but to paraphrase Jack Kerouac: “Over the years I’ve spent a lot of money on women, cycling and booze . . . the rest I just wasted.”
Why a personal web site? Because I hate facebook. I know most people love it, so I have deleted the long dissertation on the evils of facebook I previously included here.
Finally, in keeping with my new careers of amateur movie and book critic, goofing off and web surfing, I have decided to look for some “lost friends”. Sadly many are no longer with us. In other cases, they have found me. The sand in the glass continues to go “pit pat” and time is running out, I will probably never find many of them. The section labeled Personal Links below contains the current status of this search.
