Thanks to those who've helped network, offered advice, and generally done nice ADVrider things.


GreatWhiteNorth, I can probably convince mother-in-law to babysit while we down a fresh brew (coffee) in Beaudry this week.
Not sure why I didn't go for a spin today given it was + 5 out, but if you're up to it tomorrow afternoon, let's go!

Up to 10000 ft. on the Geyser Pass road this morning before we hit snow.......that's 1500 higher than last year. Pulled over into a sunny clearing before heading down.
