10 miles north of Blairsville up the hill it's really coming down. 30F and holding steady. I expect it to get colder as the day passes.

According to my car, it was 45* and snowing in Cumming. It wasn't something I expected to see, for sure!

Yeah, I guess I won't be riding tomorrow. Oh well, nicer weather is right around the corner.

Hey Dogs. I'm in the market for a cheapish dirtbike. Something to ride with my kids but still have fun at an adult pace when the time is right. Brand dosen't really matter, but condition does. I don't want anything I have to spend a lot of time and money on.

Bummer.

Just a few more weeks and the weather will be on the up-swing.

Got a question for you Northern DOGs.

A friend and I do an annual Easter Weekend camping/riding trip Easter weekend. We're looking at the Clayton area this year and I was wondering if anyone knows of a good camping spot for 3 nights?

Nice. Let me know when you get tired of it. I'll buy it from you.

You are welcome to basecamp here at the farm.

We got a little snow here in Dawsonville. I think we are on the southernmost tip of any accumulation. It got COLD though and my street is a sheet of ice. We got some flurries yesterday at work in Cumming.

The 950 has a new sidekick as of yesterday. Gonna call it "Elvis" after the original owner who bought it new in 1974 and rode around on it shooting deer . 1973 R75/5 with 10-year old dust and grime on it. It needed saving.
