I'm gonna try to avoid puttin everyone in the fierce heat right after lunch. Mabe hang out over at Llano for a while before we head out for the northerly norther meander

I just need ta convince the other guys that those big wide pavement expanses are N O T the place to be in the heat. Much better on a small narrow bit of pavement with plenty of grass & trees closeby.

I am planning a just in case shortest way home route in case the two FJRs need to get back home by late afternoon.

There are times I prefer the big wide pavement as it gets me home and out of the heat in a lot less time.

Didn't realize people are that serious about collages. I admire Mondo's passion for the arts. Lol.
Seriously though, working Alaska _around_ the TSTC schedule may be next to impossible. They have very little time off. How about a graduation trip?

Got a four day weekend coming up. That's enough time to cross the Border, have some fun, and get back before anyone notices.

Well, it's just that there are these caves near Bustamante I've never seen and the roads look all twisted and I've still got some knobs left on the front......

Anyway, Mom said I could.
