I enjoyed both days loops and the entire weekend last year.
The only thing i didn't like is that i didn't win anything at the raffle.

Saturday: The level 5 hero on my F800GS
Sunday: The Afternoon Rain

3. Other than the loops, how did you feel about the entire weekend? Great weekend for Adventure Bikes, had enough of a challenge for all ability levels if you were on an Adventure Bikes. The after and before ride entertainment and food was perfect for those that chose to camp in the field.
On the list of must do's this year!!

You literally just have to cut and paste those coordinates into Google Maps.

Sweet!

Of course, its going to take some pretty warm weather to melt the forecasted 20" of snow coming tonight.

I was amazed this morning that I was one of 7 cars on Rte. 8 from Winsted to Waterbury at 7am! WTF! Don't believe all the hype the weathermen throw out there. Its all about ratings. I've been working and commuting for over 35 years and only once was unable to get to work because former Governor Ella Grasso shut down all state roads. It costs us CT taxpayers $100,000/hour to keep our roads open and the DOT does a pretty damn good job doing it. Its New England! Its snowing! Who cares!

Sorry for the rant in here. I'm here at work all alone, answering the phones because all the secretaries listened to Scott Hainey and stayed home.

When I lived in VT the only thing I was concerned about on days likes this was what time I thought I could get to Stowe to start snowboarding. I drove in all sorts of conditions from Burlington to Stowe (~ 45 mins). Plowed, un-plowed. 1 foot, 2 foot, etc

People are soft these days.

With that said I'm working from home today here in NY.

Yup. Schools and businesses close because of snow. Ski areas are packed!
