It was from your earlier post I learned of this camp. Boy Scouts were important to me back in the day.
You should take Joe up on his offer.

Probably down to about 1000 miles left on the rear. Whatever I ran over, it left a big hole in the tire.

That's what I call a generous offer!

For all the folks you know out there I thought you might show up at Kent Skoug's funeral. Nat and I rode to it in spite of some rain only because Kent would.

It was a nice service. A good number of riders. The rain wasn't too bad. I had dry spots in spite of wearing mesh gear. The room was filled.
