Got it, well if he is anywhere close to the Austin area in April I'll track him down. We'll see if any inmates in AZ are interested in showing him a good time...

Well . . . been away from the net for awhile and I know exactly where Nutsy is. Great drop with lots of good food just across the bridge (and it's gorgeous view of our emerald green Gulf waters).

If not picked up by Mac or someone else, they'll get grabbed and be on their way soon, heading. . . NORTH. Have to wait out the Winter Storm ice heading our way tomorrow and Wed. After that I should be good to go.

Bridges to Destin are closed, I won't be picking Nutsy up and taking them west. Shuey will probably take them towards Nashville next week.

Are you staying put, Mac? Looks pretty nasty down there, and headed west...

Beautiful day for a ride and found two stranded travelers who have joined me for a 'leetle' ride!

Happy Trails...

Glad you made the grab. I was a little worried about that spot.

The first order of business is getting some hot grub, so after a quick hop across the bridge into Destin proper, McGuire's is a good spot for a light snack.



Some bread and a bowl of Senate Bean Soup . . . ahhhhhh - yummy.

With full tummy and a steady North wind to keep the clouds at bay out in the Gulf . . . time for a little local area orientation for my traveling companions before heading back to the barn.



We'll tuck in for the weekend, watch the SuperBowl while eating some junk food then head North somewhere on Monday or Tuesday. Stay tuned . . .

I take it the bridge to Destin was a bit more ice free than the bridge in Niceville! Nice grab, I was grittin' my teeth crossing the bridge in Niceville when I left this AM. New ride rolled over 1K before the TX line.

It was a good spot, although . . . I did have a brief moment of concern when I initially stopped and couldn't find them. The past 3 days of ice and winds had blown the bag around a little with some debris on top.

As I turned to leave, thinking they'd already been picked up, I thought I could hear their muffled cries for help. All's well that ends well.

PS: When I return home, maybe we can get together to share a bite to eat somewhere? Would enjoy meeting. :)

Glad you made it out ok Mac.
Mac, since the Mid-Bay and Destin bridges had been closed early they hadn't had any traffic packing the ice AND unlike the Niceville bridge, neither of these have any trees or anything else blocking the sun. By this afternoon, at 55 degrees, they were all clear. No ice and no sand.

Safe travels my friend,
Shuey
