snow?

didn't stop RideAbout from riding in.
I was in the Royota on my way back from picking up material for a job.
Lovely Linda showed up too,so that made 3!,,,but no FF's.


We decided that in a case such as this,,that only the truly suave,intrepid,stalwart, good looking, fearless, and highly intelligent peeps will actually show up,,and,

,like I said,



,there were the 3 of us!

looks like you got about 4 more inches of snow than I had here.
I love it when this happens and the town virtually shuts down.
Went to DMV and walked right up to the counter,,on 2 other customers in the place.
Got back from the meet-up and saw a set of tracks to my door. Then, noticed another set of tracks, smaller, around the area where the Royota parks.
First set of tracks,,UPS driver,,second smaller set of footprints,,my naybor, stashing my newly arrived tires in his crew cab pickup, then tracks to the door to leave a note. Snow detective!
good onya for exercising MonkeyWife's baby bike,,looks good with stuffed rims!,,sprinkle some glitter on there for the flash effect!

I took the XR out in the snow yesterday but not for long, squirreling around in my new to me V-8 Bronco was more fun. Power was out most of the day so I broke out the single burner camp stove and made tea and soup for lunch, ate it on the front porch while watching Barney play in the snow. I know it's not much but I needed a day like that.

Peterman! CONGRATS on your new tires! I hope they know you sacrificed a proper tooth extraction for them and they appreciate it and treat you right!

Hope the tooth pain is completely gone. I have only experienced a minor amount of it and just from that I can say - I completely understand why you did it! I was still incredibly impressed! AND that tooth was HUGE!

Can't wait to see the necklace on our next meeting!

Hey, snow is my worst enemy not only is it cold and wet but its also slippery as a booger. But that paddle is not doing battle with my nemesis, it is destined for the sand. I am down at Coos Bay all weekend at the sand drags, and I figured I should show up on a chariot worthy of such an event.

No, not me

But anyone we know?

Cottage Grove man subject of search
WESTFIR — Lane County search and rescue personnel were looking for a missing Cottage Grove man Saturday night, said John Miller, the county’s search and rescue coordinator.
The man left the Westfir area on his motorcycle during the day to ride the Aufder*heide National Forest Scenic Byway, also known as Forest Service Road 19, Miller said.
Rescue personnel were still looking for the man as of 9 p.m. Saturday. No other information was available at press time.

Bummer!

I didn't think so,,maybe he was going to see how far up he could get.
Hope he is found safe.
