Hey Alan, let us know when you plan to head up for sure. I need some saddle time and may be able to break outta here to come up and provide immoral support, or maybe even help.

Except tomorrow - have to fix a minor problem on the car.

Looks like I'm going to miss you guys too.

Planning to ride down on the 9th and hopefully camp at the speedway, catch the supercross on Sat the 10th and ride home Monday the 12th......

As I imagined

Only the top of the tree blew out and laid over on the MH

After all it was resting in the fork of another oak

Didn't think much could have fell, not with both essentially growing together

One cool thing about working nights:

I can crack open a beer at 8:00 AM when I get off work and not feel like a lush...
