If you ever have any questions or need help, let me know, mine's been keeping me happy for almost 65,000 miles (and it looks like it too!)

Im more of a rugged camping type of guy. My favorite spot down in KY was an island I had to boat for 15 minutes to get to. Any suggestions on nice places to ride to and camp that isn't 100 miles away?
There's more than four of us but not all are daily posters and some just lurk. As for camping el-natural i Western Ohio. I am unaware of any parks allowing overnight camping out here. But travel towards SE Ohio across 35 and you will find Tar Hollow. Not sure in Wayne has overnight camping or not. But I'm sure there are state parks that do.

C-bus visit

Time for our annual trip to Easton for my wife's ophthalmic conference. I am thinking of heading to Mudflats in Galena after dinner tonight for some Rockabilly. Also thinking of heading to either the Mellow Mushroom or Brews for lunch tomorrow. Anyone care to join me so I don't have to drink alone?

Can't ride the motorcycle so might as well go Skiing. Heading out this afternoon for Holiday Valley, New York to break some bones!

Michael, I am not sure if you know that, by any conventional measurement of behavior, you are fully insane. Not that I would be a standard bearer for normalcy. No sir, far be it, I am here to tell you that I salute the silly and nonsensical, I applaud the abnormal and absurd. I just wonder if, perhaps, some fifty odd years ago, aliens landed in rural Stark county, and you are the result of their experiments?

Either that or your mom dropped you on your head when you were a baby.

Give me a call when you get to Columbus and I will buy you a cup of coffee and raise a toast to your endeavors!

I'm 15 minutes off 71. Stop by for a hot chocolate.

You do know the high is under 30 and there is an 80% chance of snow right?

The weather gods have been screwing me for years, why stop now. I would have left 3 days ago but "it" happens.

In fact I was just informed the cyclocross worlds were rescheduled to Saturday due to expected flooding so I'll miss out on that also.

At least if I make it to Louisville, I'll have a free room and be half way to my sisters and highs of 40+

A few guys and a girl I know are at CX worlds right now. If I wasn't so doggone busy, I might try to tag along.

I'll probably be out on the WRR tomorrow for a little to play in the snow. I would have rode to work this morning, but I had to bring a crock pot (no room on the WRR).

A crock pot will fit in a milk crate on the back of a KLR.

1. The beans would have been frozen by the time I arrived at work.
2. Still had a pan of cornbread & backpack to contend with.
3. The WRR is funner for tossing around,
4. The WRR is easier to pick up,
5. The WRR probably has more fitting tires.

Are you riding that KTM much dox?

Haven't been riding anything lately. Probably mostly wrenching on things until spring, I'm lazy. And cold
