GOD DAMN IT ...you have to be kidding me. That would have been one of the most memorable rides of my life just to meet them :-)

Alright, a shipment of my tire, a tube, my Amazon order and something else came today. Note the circled area. I figured that someone broke in to the package to see what was in there, or to steal something while I was away at work.



This is what I'm going to need when on the softer sand trails mid-state:



But in that Amazon package, besides a knife, snack food, water purification tablets and ginkgo biloba extract ... I found an empty bottle stashed in the box:



That's some guy's Xanax bottle. Best guess I have is that he works at Amazon filling orders since the CVS pharmacy seems to be based in the same state that the Amazon.com order was filled in.

maybe we could make a game around them.....kinda like adv tag...but instead of just finding some spot and taking a photo in front of it we find out where the us top gear crew is shooting and do everything we can to make their life miserable...think sasquach suits in the background...some sort of cannon that shoots ripe fish....a banner plane with obscene words....ahhh this could be a new hobby.

that would have been cool as shit to meet those guys. i like top gear no matter what, but that episode from US one where they chopped up a XJ Jeep kinda pissed me off.

i might ride out to the glades tomorrow or saturday if anyone is riding.

Janes Scenic is rough as hell!! Even the first part coming from 29!! Its rougher than it was last February or so for the Wanker Tour. We were still short of the Strand when we turned around. Mainly because it was the end of the day, we were already gonna get back to Homestead much later than planned, and then Cesars bike took a dirt nap. It looked like it was just gonna keep getting rougher closer to the Squares. I am betting that the Squares and Sable Palm were under water based on what I saw on Janes.

Have a fun ride, heading off on a cruise with the wife for her birthday in the morning.

New rear tire on (Sinko 705) so i should be alright in the softer stuff, new cush-drive hub bearing, shimmed-up cush drives with pieces of an inner tube, and the GoPro is mounted.

I'm ready for a Sunday ride I think. Anyone else for Sunday from the east coast?
