If you couldn't guess, I'm a big fan of REI stores. They sell outdoor related gear like backpacks, camping stuff, shoes, etc. They opened up a new store a little closer to me this weekend (in corte madera), so I had to check it out. I uttered the famous last words before we left, "I don't really need anything." I ended up buying a bike. doh! Evil credit cards.

With gas prices as high as they are (and my car needing as much work as it needs), the bike should pay for itself by the end of the summer. (how's that for rationalization?)
