+1 Well said, Evan. Beaver Island indeed...

Also, right at this moment I am 90 minutes into a 2 hour conference call where my presence, but not my involvement, is required. I have staved off boredom by creating a logo for my biker gang...

I just zoomed in on Google Maps between Kittery, ME and Portsmouth, NH and it's actually named Badger Island. Can someone confirm? Because if that's correct then that right there is FUNNY.

Beaver Island is a state of mind that transcends being merely a physical location that can be "Google-Mapped".

I really thought it was Beaver Island. One track mind, I guess.

In fact, the "2nd Cousins of Anarchy" Biker Gang has dual headquarters - one in Margaritaville and one on Beaver Island.

Was good seeing everyone last week. Maffud that dual sport ride in January definitely looks like a good time. Might have to plan on that one.
