Warmer weather

I'm fairly new to Ohio, this is my first winter here. When is it going to warm up?! I'm tired of this cold stuff already! Just want to go out and ride without having to have my joints freeze up and hands almost get frost bite! Anybody have a reliable date for when spring will arrive?

It was 70* last Sunday. I'd go with that. Sion might be right also

I have some steel set up in the back but going to a USPSA shoot today so won't be around. Probably could do some evening this week if you want. Text me.

What kind of competition and why wait until May? I'm not great but do shoot a good bit of the combat action type stuff and could probably get you started.

Well the class is that date. Not sure what sort of competition we might enjoy so the idea of a day long class introducing us to multiple types seemed like a good idea. Besides we've only been into the semi auto pistols a year.

We don't have Spring. The three seasons are Summer, Winter, and Monsoon.

Not me, but I've helped my brothers put NG units in their houses. We put an early one about 12 years ago, and it didn't work too well. The last one about 3 years ago is much better. It a sizing issue. Get the large one.

The weather here is miserable. We will go from from cold and wet to hot and humid in the course of an afternoon. It will be comfortable for about an hour.

That being said, we are just about to the day where historically the average low temps will be barely above freezing. This is what I consider the real start of the riding season.

Weather has been heavily on my mind the past few days.

Tomorrow I fly to LA for business stuff. Then on Friday, I fly to Phoenix to close a deal on an R1200GS on Saturday. Sometime late that morning, I'll mount up and head East. 33# of riding gear has been sent to the seller's address in preparation for whatever Nature will toss in my way.

Planning to stay south-ish on either I-10 or I-20 until I have to turn North. Things are looking good right now, but who knows what I'll find.
