I hope it's warmer down there, woke up to a dusting of snow this morning. The forecast looks great.

Looks like I'm about 98% not going to make it this time. Dammit!

I've had a couple of minor health issues I'm trying to get stabilized and one of the side effects (pun intended) has been that I lost several days last weekend of working on things that I ride and drive, so I'm way behind the repair curve. Of course there is still that 2% chance I'll show up intending to just visit for the day.

Anyone ever have their blood pressure drop to 80/50? Long story, but I can say you don't want to.

Edit: Is anyone bringing their dog(s)? Just curious in case by some wild chance I make it up in the Jeep whether it would be feasible to bring my hound along just to see how long he can remain over-excited while riding for longer than 20 minutes.

On another note, I saw on the news last night where SR 19 had been closed from SR 40 to CR 314 due to brush fires , but was reopened yesterday for daylight hours only. Something like 25 active fires burning yesterday all around central FL. Good thing that NW wind is blowing the smoke and fire near SR 19 away from the Scrub.

If there's not a dog fight it'll surprise me

Hadn't heard about the closing of SR-19

If there's more on the news tonight, let us know

Doug and I just rode by and picked-up Hailey from school

Went up to my dad's

Gave him the tour

Then ate lunch in Brooksville where Mallory works

It's almost a shame that she makes so much in tips

And in just a few hours a day too

She'll never finish her masters and get...

a real job

It would probably get even more interesting if I made it up there with Reggie. He's very friendly with dogs (and people) and approaches new dogs with a perfectly neutral signal. Neither aggressive nor submissive. So far every dog he's met including multiples with their hackles up has accepted him into the"pack". Problem is he likes to play rough and tumble and eventually provokes a dog into giving a warning nip. And he still tries to hump certain dogs even though he forgot why after a trip to the clinic a couple of years ago. And he puts that nose down and just keeps on going, so he has to stay tied up.

Where are you guys setting up, and what kind of bikes will everyone be riding? I might try and come play on Saturday if I don't have anything happening.

Best laid plans

I was planning on taking the whole day off then I scored some good used digital light processors for Plasma TVs yesterday. Figured I could meet a buyer quick this morning and turn a quick $$$$ and still make the scrub around the same time as the rest of YFF. No problem
Then I got a call from one of my 100 lb a week regulars and he wants to bring in a guy I've been after for a while Problem is he has 2500lb of unsorted boards to go through
Hope to see YFF before dark.
