Hot Sauce

Harvest time.

Is home made hot sauce time.

According to The Chili Pepper Popper, 'The Nocar Family sauce opens with the sweet and tangy notes of vine ripened tomatoes and cider vinegar, followed by the robust flavors of red jalapenos, and chili de arboles. The subtle kick of the ghost peppers is experienced the next morning by a delightful searing of the rectum."


Note from Cappy Re: 100 Year Centennial Ride from Sacramento to Lake Tahoe:

All the Details as posted on Facebook:

9/26/17 Update:
Less than a month away. Cross your fingers the weather before and during is favorable!
-Start Date/Time: Friday October 20th... 7am -- for whoever wants to start as a group. Everyone is welcome to start whenever they'd like. (7am start time is open for discussion! Hepting and Budd apparently started at 2am!)
-Start location: Where the Sacramento Wheelman clubhouse was in 1916-1917... between J & K Streets and 21st and 22nd Streets (called Jazz Alley now). See link in event announcement.
- Routes: 2 mile pedal from the start to American River Bike Trail.... ARBT to Folsom... a few options to In-N-Out Burger/El Dorado Trail off East Bidwell St.... lots of miles of El Dorado Trail to Placerville and Camino (some may opt for country roads).... then...... STILL WORKING ON IT! I am having challenges creating a route on Strava so I'm getting familiar with Ridewithgps.com (which seems to allow route creation that isn't on established roads/trails). This is what I'll be focusing on these next few weeks! If you have suggestions on how YOU will tackle this ride route-wise, please share.
-Lodging/SAG: You're on your own! Perhaps an organization or 2 will end up setting up an aid station somewhere, but don't count on it in your prep. You might want to reserve a room at the Strawberry Inn if you think you'll be stopping there the 1st or 2nd evening. I have not reached out to them to let them know what we are doing and the role the Inn played 100 years ago... they might be stoked to hear about it though!
- Echo Summit: I'm still hoping to recreate the sign that was at the 1917 summit the boys took photos with. I think it would be neat if all participants stopped and took a photo of themselves with the sign 😊. (If anyone has time to work on this, I'd appreciate it!)
- Finish: I plan to finish at The Beacon Bar & Grill (1900 Jameson Beach Rd, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150). This is very close to where Hepting and Budd finished their ride at "Tallac"... which was a structure on a pier in Lake Tahoe (long gone now). I'm not sure how we could really do a post-ride celebration, with everyone on their own schedule and timeline.
- Getting back: You're on your own! Perhaps social media will help people figure out carpools. Maybe some of you will ride back, like they did 100 years ago!
Some people will do this in a day.... others in 4 days. Some people will only ride one segment. Others will do it all as a relay team. There are no rules for anyone that wants to participate in some capacity (other than don't expect help from anyone you don't arrange help from yourself).
Questions? Ideas? Is anyone else still planning on doing this? 😜
