and....

well work stuff required the car this week. (whew, am I glad)

A deer ran through 3 lanes of stopped traffic on 40 into the left slow and roll lane. My car then happened to be coming to be in the way. Crunch.

Have a grateful Thanks time tomorrow.

Hope your car wasn't damaged. I think the deer get kickbacks from local body shops!

Everyone have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Unfortunately, my crappy retail job will have me tied up selling overpriced junk to overzealous shoppers for the next several days. No riding for me.

But I'll keep an eye on this thread, to see if anyone dares ride!

Just by the pictures posted, the panorama one especially, it looks like Lake Crabtree off of Morrisville Parkway close to the airport. Not sure which entrance but close to 40 I'm guessing. Whoever gets this tag tell me if I'm close

Triangle Tag o' Rama - Let's Play!

There are already GPS coordinates posted, so it's just the matter of getting the ass off that chair, man up and go get it...

Okay. Rain stopped, but it's sub-freezing now. Did we get any ice last night? I don't mind riding in cold weather, but me and ice have a mutual disrespect thing going on...

roads around here look dry and ice free...I'm sure there are some spots but it looks mainly clear...I would have to beat the front calipers into submission in order to get the bike to move...anyone riding today be careful of the holiday revelers out there... Its already a balmy 25*......

Just got back from a walk. Mostly dry, but saw several spots that hadn't dried out and they were definitely frozen.

I've got the perfect file tag but I'm waiting for the sun to hit more of those ice patches

It's Thanksgiving day. The sun is shining.
I've already got a turkey in the smoker grill cooking. Enjoy the day.
Enjoy your family and friends. Have a great day!
Go tagging after lunch instead of taking a nap!
