I like to support the local man as well....... but my limited funds say the lowest bidder gets my cash.

Thank you all for the helpful links.

Hopefully everyone made it home ok tonight. Pretty bad on 575/515 this evening. We took the dirt roads home and made great time in the 4WD sleigh.

Me and the Mrs. got some drinking to do....

the reason you have limited funds is your local area cannot give you money because they are hurting because your not spending at home!
just saying!

enjoy your bud lights (water with a hop waved over it) but that is a whole nother subject!!

How is Mrs. Twisty doing? It's been a while since I have heard? Surgery? Is she riding trials yet?

HA! HA! No, she's not riding yet. Surgery went well and physical therapy under way, but she hasn't started strength training yet. Maybe next week, but they must make sure she doesn't pull the tendon's loose.

If she ever rides again, it will be spring until she is physically ready, but the physical part is much easier than the mental part.

You did not? Almost layed the 950 down a minute ago, don't ask me how I saved it. I guess I'm lucky I hit the grass after the black ice. It got my attention and warmed me up quick. Funny now, but could have ended badly. I miss you guys. Going to do some dualsporting soon though.

I wish I would have taken pictures.....

I come over a hill to see a Harley in the ditch burried to the bags.
I pull off and help him get it out and after 5 minutes I convince him to leave it on the hill and hop in the Jeep.

My good deed of the day. Oh FYI when I get the Jeep sideways in the ice no one gets in front of the bull guard in my way...

My office is 200 feet from the house.


Of course I will probably be out putting chains on the crew cab first thing in the morning to go pick up the crew and take them to the job site.

Because my POS BMW sedan is sitting in my work parking lot with what appears to be a broken steering lock mechanism, rendering the ignition inoperable. I can turn the key about 1/8" and that's it. $100 part from the stealer and about 3 hrs of intensive DIY labor to replace. Hoping someone will steal it tonight. I've had this car since the week of 9/11, 2001 and this is the first time it has left me stranded.

1735 Cleveland Hwy, Dalton if you're interested.

Once upon a time I actually really liked this car. I think I'm finally "over" it.

Forecast shows it's going to be 37 degrees by 8:00 tomorrow morning. Roads should be OK by then.
