Blooch'
you are making Cathy and I home sick!
it is good to hear that Willene and Flip took care of you.
Good hunting so far.
You will be amazed at what you can trade for the traffic fines.
You are in our thoughts every day, keep safe.

Banshee,
thanks for forewarding the message from Bloochdog.

I hope you are having a good time, and have a better tent than the one I had.

Please give us a call when you get a chance.

Be safe.

" I wouldn't join a club that would have ME as a member " with the exception of BWDR

Hello all,

First of all THANK YOU BLOOCH for a great weekend @ the cabin. It was a pleasure meeting all the BWDR's.
I made it home safely , through high winds ( high enough to make me change lanes ) and hail which forced me to take shelter for an hour. After that just some wet riding.
I'm currently working on the dvd and will make copies for all when it's completed.
Glad you all had a safe ride home .

What the ... !?

Blooch,

Glad you're safe and living large and in charge. Sorry to hear you "lost" your cam. I know the feeling , "keep the damn camera just let me get my pix !!" .

Sounds like you can't get enough hunting in. Have you fed all the hungry children of Africa yet?

I shall impart a few quotes for you to ponder :

Most travel is best of all in the anticipation or the remembering; the reality has more to do with losing your luggage. ~Regina Nadelson

Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen. ~Benjamin Disraeli

No vacation goes unpunished. ~Karl Hakkarainen

I thank Thee first because I was never robbed before; second, because although they took my purse they did not take my life; third, because although they took my all, it was not much; and fourth because it was I who was robbed, and not I who robbed. ~Matthew Henry

Ride On !!!

John

Great pics, Banshee... the bike looks awesome!

Like RoadCandy said, you are a bad-ass chick!

Can't wait to ride with you and the other BWDRs... do you guys want to try to get together in the fall?? After watching the videos that John sent out (BTW, excellent job on that, John!), I'm psyched to come down and take on that mountain again!

Come on, what do ya say?? I'll make chopped salad again.....
