Y'all have fun. I'm still in California -- enjoying the air-conditioning at my niece's house in Bakersfield right this moment.

I just started (this morning) a ride report on my trip. Here's the link in case you're interested:
http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=902191

Looking back toward Kings Canyon.


I'll see y'all in a couple of weeks -- or so.

Chris

The battery in my bike died last night and left me stranded in an abandoned parking lot. In the pouring rain.

Thank goodness for Pete. He came and helpd me load up the bike and get it back to the house. We couldn't have been any more wet when we finished lashing the bike down in the truck. He'll surely never let me live it down, but at the time he didn't bitch or complain a single word.

So I'll be sorting this out tonight after work. I won't be able to make it. And NO, this isn't sour grapes because we/you didn't choose my favorite pizza joint!

Holly and I are at the pool prepping for a swim meet.

(Well, Holly is prepping. I am just sitting here watching her work)

Not going to make it. Hopefully next time as summer swim team will be over.

I told ya'll to come on down. The weather was beautiful along the river and the beignets were awesome, as usual.

While I was in the French Qtr I came across these street performers and was really impressed. I just thought I would share it with everyone.

I for one appreciate the sharing. Don't remember exactly, '67 or '68, Mardi Gras, laying in Jackson Square with a bad head from the night before (yeah, hangover) hearing some music that sounded much like that. Never saw a rickshaw in the Quarter when I was there. Hope school is going well, and stay safe out there.

I'm in if you'll tell me where. I'm new to Greenville, but met Jocassee at a gas station thanks to my ADV sticker and we got to talking. Please say when and where and I'll be there.
