Update sought

It is now the 26th. Anything shipped?

By the way, I see you reside in Spokane. How was/is your 2013/2014 winter? More dry than usual? Colder?

Good luck on the car fixing.

Talking Forget Bigfoot

Camping on the coast means racoons are the problem, not Bigfoot.

I rode home from the doc's office after mine.....the numbness hadn't worn off yet.

"Hung" around the home for two days after that with tight underwear on and a gel-pack of blue ice.

What people have already said...

...backpacks worn while riding is tiring.

I only wear a day bag and carry light stuff if there is no room left on the bike.

Short ride of 100-150 miles = wear whatever backpack you want
