The DE with two gears in reserve? Excellent!

I get tired just looking at that hill ... while sittiing the car.

For those who have never seen it, I have to shift my car way down (sometimes to first?) when driving up it.

I was quite pleased.

Hmm. Not trying to take anything away from Charlie's success cycling up the DE, but...

Y'all should try cycling up the hill to my house. Charlie's driven it (or, rather, Rhonda was driving).

No, I don't know that I could even walk my bike up Gist. It has enough elbows for a whole conference of Devils.

Is that the accepted collective noun for devils? The googles suggest "bombast" or "pandemonium". But yours may be better.

Well, I guess a pandemonium would obviate the need for the "of . . . " I was just running along with the sentence and had to think of something and conference seemed about right.

Pandemonium reminds me of an incident of long ago, say early to mid-70s, when we passed by an apartment complex being built. The then very youthful Kathy, let's say about 5, said, "Look Dad, they're building a pandemonium,"
