Yep. Suckiest winter in recent history. Between the shitty weather and someone in the house being sick since December.... Yeah, I'm over it.

Thanx peejman. I detest ethanol gas & HATE using it in a machine as elegant as a KLR.

I can't speak for others but, my KLR runs on the tears of demons, the purity of it's riders heart & a pinch of bull s***!

Gopro batteries? Yes, I think. When my old battery quit charging I ordered another one but, it wouldn't charge either. I tried charging it from my computer (which takes longer than the wall charger) & it worked fine. I haven't tried the old battery yet but, I'm willing to bet $100 of your money that it's still good.

I'll have to get another wall charger in time for ADV@LBL in order to justify spending the extra cash on an electric site.... & I still gotta replace the defective sleeping bag I lost at last falls adventure.

I'm sure as things get closer, we'll start laying the plan out.
We have suffered the tragic loss of our 104 lb. Tea Cup Great Pyrenees "Bubba".



In his absence our fox problem has gotten way out of hand & we're losing birds regularly. We do have a new puppy(Pucko) but, he's just a tiny little 55 lb. thing & only barks at the fox as he runs off with one of our girls. In another month or two little Pucko will probably start dropping the hammer on the fox like Bubba did but, that doesn't help NOW.

I regret to inform everyone that I will NOT be bringing any Chicken Fruit for this Springs event but, we've got 40 chic's coming in the mail any day now so I might be able to bring Chicken Fruit for next Springs event. The chic's probably won't be laying in time for the Fall ride but, who knows?

Perhaps we can agree to bring store bought food & fixens so we can continue our tradition of a healthy breakfast each mourning before the riding starts? I suppose I could bring in some un-healthy, hormone filled store bought eggs, if anyone is willing to sink to THAT level. A high performance machine doesn't run on an empty tank & I enjoy breakfast.

You used elegant and klr in the same sentence....

Sorry about your dog. One of our neighbors had one when I was a kid. Cool dog though I think it was at least 75% fur.

We've started getting farm eggs from a coworker. They're quite good.

Man, I'm sorry to hear that, I love Pyrenees a lot, and we have a GP mix ourselves. They are fantastic dogs. I hate to hear anyone loose a dog, but that hits a little closer to home.

No worries on the eggs, I'm sure we can work something out. I am riding in, so I have limited room, and no doubt that I'll be eating differently than just about everyone who shows up (Hayniac was eating vegetarian/vegan last time I saw him though, so maybe not!), but we'll work something out, no doubt.

That was a fine breakfast you guys and gals made last year and i will contribute to it this year. Maybe when it gets closer we can break it down on who's bringing what.

Sorry to hear about the pooch! What do you do with your extra eggs?

Since we've been on this "Paleo Diet", we don't have many extra eggs. Their productivity will pick up by May but, we had 30 hens last Spring & are down to 19 right now with our own consumption approximately doubled.

.....And thanks everyone for all the kind words over Bubba's loss. He was a huge asset to our family & farm.

75%

I'm going to try and make this one - don't have a dirt bike, but will bring the GS with street tires if I can make it. Certainly there's a Starbucks nearby I can hang out at while the heros tear up the dirt
