I personally would love some Silver Skewer (is that place still open?), but I believe a cold front is coming through between Thurs and Fri. I would also need to bring the fam, as my wife will refuse to be left out on some Skewer

I have to go to a buffet to get sushi--it's the only way I can afford to eat my fill

If this video doesn't make you yearn to gallop north of the border, then I wonder about you

There was one of these

that decided to lock all 8 wheels and do almost a 180 degree turn at the stop light heading to Lances. Take a look at the stoplight heading North and you will see the massive skid marks come across to the center and almost take out the pole for the signal. There was maybe 1 foot of space between it and the pole but I bet it leaned over and tapped the pole just as it stopped.

Damn a dragon wagon... I had to blow up one in place on the road to Baghdad because it broke an axel from an RPG. I need to go to Waldorf, I'll look for the skid marks.

thanks for the photo Wayne... I feel better.

Just make sure you start before me as it might get tight trying to pass the hack.

5-6 October. Most of those roads Kevin has taken us on. Less the private property pieces.

"World of Adventure"

So Rawhyde has this new website. It's kind of neat as it might be a nice "one-stop" shop. Although, I do percieve it not truly "all vendors", just ones that can afford to donate kit to them.

It's also interesting, none of the east coast BMW relationships have continued.
