Cold, Wet and Miserable riding today, yet I still had a great time! Always good to run into the Adventurous souls of Hampton Roads and really good to meet a couple new ones, now I have a face and bike to put to a avatar and screen name.

Velocity was really cool and definately worth another trip up there, hope it will be dryer next time.

Heated gloves are a must and long live the Killer Tomato rain gear

Raised a few bucks for Guy, appreciate that fellas. Will get it out soon.

I am sorry to have missed out on the ride today. I had to head down South to pick up something for my kiddies...

Doing a loop to Annapolis Sunday morning

If anyone missed the ride to Velocity today (like me ) and has the need to ride tomorrow... I'm doing a loop to Annapolis in the morning. Up on the Interstate and back down on the back roads. Hopefully any ice on the backroads will be gone by noon when I'm heading back.

Leaving at 0800.
Lunch in Annapolis
Home before dark.

Dave

I had a truly awful day. Just terrible. Long day at the museum... 2 trainees, so nothing got done quickly, and had to help out on the trails for a bit. Nothing like cleaning up turkey sh-t in the rain.

Got to our office around 130 and found quite possibly, the worst field work ever turned in, in the entire history of surveying. A 5 year old special needs koala could have done better work than our field guy. All the technology we have in our equipment, and all the items at his disposal to help him do the job quickly, accurately, and correctly, and he turns in a pile of vomit.

I called my boss in, because he had the file which I told him to leave on my desk on Friday. He thought it was funny that I didn't have what I needed to complete the job he waited on until the last minute so I have to come in on a Saturday when I should be at Jebs eating food with people I don't know. I find it not that funny, and begin to spout off with bits of sarcasm. It grows into a full on bitch-fest, where everything comes out, including my dislike of lima beans.

Somehow, i finish the job around 630, and head home, where it's snowing on the interstate. We all know what that means down here... Hampton Roads finest drivers panic like a long tailed cat in a room that's on fire... or something... I don't remember how that goes.

I had macaroni and cheese for dinner. I'm out of milk, so I had to use water to make the sauce. It was like eating cheese flavored sand... with noodles.






















Then I log onto ADVRider and see this photo:

Looks like you guys had fun today. Sorry I couldn't join. I'll make it out one of these times, I swear.

Thanks again for making me laugh... I really need it today.
