This is what greeted me after a colleague walked into my office and said, simply, "You need to leave now."

Best quote on the way home, one guy to another outside the Armory on Dexter: "That's one crazy bitch!"



So are we still on? It's up to you guys; I'm the one that lives in town.

I'm planning to head up still but we'll see how the snow is when I'm leaving here, it's been snowing for a while but not accumulating much at all so far.. central CT to Providence is a bit of a drive on my racing slick bald tires... so if it's too sketchy I'll bail... or if most of you guys are planning to bail... odds are I'll be there though!

The side streets are slushy, but nothing bad. I'm waiting for the cheese to head back home to hear what he thinks. If anything, it'll be me and him

I'm out! Made it into RI on clear roads but a few exits into RI it turned to shit pretty quick. I rubbed my car up again the center median guard rail on 95N for a few hundred yards haha. No big deal.

Bald Tires = 0
Leap Day Williams = 1

Hey folks, thanks so much for braving the crappy weather and coming out for some good food, good beer and good chats. I'm not much of an organizer and I'm so happy everyone had a good time.

I do hope that everyone made it home safely. Please. And to those that couldn't make it, I'm so very happy you made a smart decision. Maybe when the weather is nicer and my house is cleaner, we'll have BBQ at my house. Lock up your bikes!

Thanks to Jason for the raffle. Seriously, I never win anything, and it made a great belated b-day present. But no pink :(

Special thanks to tmlee and mrs tmlee for driving me and the cheese there and to mrt10x to driving us back home. I can claim that no cars were used!

Girls ride -- some random Sunday in the spring! If you know women who ride and want to try some easy dirt roads, PM me. No experience necessary.

Oh, and the waiter, just wanted to put him in my pocket. Too cute. Poor guy.

And jgormley, I don't think any of us helped with what pants to get or what bike to buy.





Too much math for a Marine
