I have not been on the bike in 2 days. I try not to ride in this good weather. I'd rather be doing other stuff like jogging in 95 degree temps, fishing, or surfing.

Now give me 30 degrees with freezing rain and ice and I'm happy as a clam in the saddle. I think that's a holdover from the military days when I'd spend hours hanging out of a helicopter over the cold north pacific in a dry suit with ice crystals forming on my helmet microphone in 60 mph winds that were barely above freezing.

Loved that job. Never had a better or more fulfilling job since, will never get the chance to do it again. We all have regrets and choosing to get out of the military to go to college always been one of mine.

You know this one time we were pulling a couple off a sailboat about 500 miles west of Seattle when a set of rogue waves came through. I shit you not that I saw the hoist cable go slack and next thing I knew the wave was bearing down onto the helicopter. The sailboat was suddenly above us too. Never had that experience before, never since. I lived for those kinds of days. Didn't realize how happy I was and how satisfied I was with my job until it was over and I couldn't go back.

Is it just me or does Flash's stories remind you of that old story teller from Rocky and Bullwinkle Show?

Has anybody got a better map of the tag borders than the one on the first page? I wouldn't want to get banned to Va. I hope you guys are kidding about that.

click on the link in flash's signature - he has the google maps link for the boundaries... you can zoom in and everything.

I think people here are a little more forgiving. If you get out and ride, grab and tag, it's all good. You might get some ribbing for it - but keep it moving man!!!

here is a different version I have bookmarked

Yah that's mine too. I had almost forgotten that I'd made that map.

And if you want to download it to KML you can do so using this link:
