OK, I will agree with that. 9 degrees is starting to get a bit on the chilly side.

Today would have been the day to do it. Temps got almost to 50. Too bad some of us have to work for a living.

If it gets above 25 on Friday I will go after it. Lower than that and forget it. Yes, my blood is too thin.

As for the heated gear. It is the best money I ever spent. My only mistake was not buying it years ago. It extends my riding season to year round.

Yee haw. And damn it was cold at the dam.

Guntersville Dam. East side.

Here the Tennessee river looking down stream from the same spot. The Huntsville Canoe Club launches from here and paddles down to Ditto Landing one in a while. I want to go with them but I think I will wait for a warmer day.

This bridge is twelve feet wide and 250 feet long over Crooked Creek. It is one of the longest bridges in the old S9uth. Originally built in 1904, repaired in 1923 and restored in 1976. The bridge is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. An old mill with waterwheel is located in the adjacent picnic area.

Now get out there and get it.

I don't think the phone number gives the address, tracking the number I think that's the guy trying to rent the place, maybe the same city as the number
