Power was out for about an hour in Denver area today. I have to give credit to power company getting it back on so quickly. I had already started loading the wood stove. Catawba county hasn't even thought about plowing... Snow was 8-10" in the road.

Pulled 2 out of the ditch last night on the way home...another 3 on my way in today. I'm building up good Karma so I can act like an asshole the rest of the year.

Sucks when you work for yourself; I have deadlines to meet and they don't care about weather. So...I'm at work. Anyone bored on their day off I will come get you- I need someone to wash parts- outside.

I am sure I speak for all of us when I say I hope you can make it to Hawthornes one of these days.

Herrserj and I did a fun ride inside the Carolina Sandhills Nat. Wildlife Refuge today. The dirt roads were really greasy and wet with a lot of snow still on them. We installed my crash bars on my KLR this morning and I'm pleased to report I did not test them although there were some really slick areas we rode through.
We will be at Hawthornes to meet you fellas come Thursday evening. Looking foward to it.

Oh, we did see someone on a BMW GS near Mt Croghan on #9 on the way back home so at least one more adventure rider was out today. :-)

Funny, I was out that way too. Didn't see any adventure types though. Good day to ride for a change.

I'll be there as well. So it sounds like I won't be drinking alone.

Don't ever mention free booze around me, I have a free booze memory like an elephant. Someone mentioned free booze...

Looks like it will be a nice turnout this time too. Some new folks to meet and ride with.

Numa, you got plenty of tables reserved for us?

Free booze isn't the only thing you don't forget.
