I usually leave early enough to avoid all the bad drivers, but I got stuck in traffic this morning. Some guy flipped a little car end over end. How? I don't know, but anything is possible on this stretch in the morning. I managed to get to work before all the other wrecks happened, and there were a lot this morning.

let me guess, the goal is to be able to haul at least 1/3 of what is in your garage?

I need Toymans trailer to accomplish that.

This ones a light fold up trailer that can stand on end for storage. Got it tucked in behind my enclosed trailer.

That is why I haven't acquired an enclosed trailer yet. I have to find a place to park it. I didn't realize that the covenants of our neighborhood does not allow trailers or motorhomes parked in the driveway. I am thinking now that I might be able to park it out at the airport, outside but inside the security fence. Got to go check that out and make sure noone has a problem with that. No room in the hangar.

This story creeped me out a little bit...
nlp

Calhoun County, SC (WLTX) -- South Carolina's Highway Patrol is reporting a late morning fatality involving a motorcycle rider.

Shortly after 10AM on Monday, on I-26 near mile marker 141, an unidentified rider of a BMW motorcycle, headed westbound, was unable to avoid hitting a dog in the roadway, and was thrown from his bike.

A tractor trailer driver then swerved to miss the motorcycle, but struck the rider, who died from his injuries.

Officials have not released the rider's name, pending family notification.

Those Kendon stand-ups are great trailers, but expensive as heck. Knowing you (cheap), you got it for a song I bet. I stand mine up in the garage along one wall. Out of the way. Mine is just the single, and it tows great. But you have to make sure you tie the bike down all the way, right Kris?

You mean Kris has a mishap? Surely not.

Ahhhh. Morro Bay California. Finally made it to the warm weather (70 degrees) and have been soaking that and the sea air up, watching the sea otters play in the bay, then partaking of fresh fish and shrimp. Life is good! Of course the drivers are nuts, but as several have pointed out, so are those out on 540.

Hope everyone stays warm tonight.
