Sounds like a great opportunity to "bump" as a reminder for the date - wouldn't want anyone to show up a week early!

Am sitting in my office at work. When you work for an electric utility, you don't get to go home or anywhere else when a major storm comes through. I have my sleeping bag and Thermorest with me. Might be a long couple of nights.

Hopefully, it'll stay snowing powder and we won't get much/any ice. Ice and -- to a lessor extent -- heavy wet snow is what you learn to hate when you work at a utility. That stuff brings down limbs and trees and causes us big problems.

You guys (and lady) keep me in your thoughts while you're sitting in front of a warm fireplace, drinking a cold beer and flipping through back issues of ADVMoto Dual Sport News. Won't be long and it'll be spring.

Just sitting here thinking about breaking out the 530. The local camo crowd is blasting up and down the road on their quads. Looks like fun.

This too shall pass.

Stopped snowing a while ago, and the snow is nice and dry. I wanted to do a snowman but can't even pack it, it just falls apart.

I think we should race around the 485 loop. Might have some trouble on the North end, though...

Man, a guy makes one mistake and we never let him forget. But I do hope he holds us a nice table this time.
