I posted the explaination in Inmates.
I don't expect science to work in Hollywood, but sometimes they come up with stuff so bizzare that I have no clue what sort of things they want me to believe. Often they try to make up explainations that just confuse me more, stuff like having a guy in the vacuum of space calmly snorting cocaine, but then they'll say it's possible to snort/suck/blow/breathe without air because he used a magnetic straw. Anyway, that kind of stuff was bothering me, so I quit watching MacGuyver reruns and started watching Walking Dead and some other action shows, where people get shot a lot.

I liked "Earth2" because they actually did use bullets with time bombs inside that would explode a few hours after being shot--actually not a bad idea so that terrorists could blow up hospitals by shooting someone on the street.
Every other show just acts like the bullets will explode unless they're removed, and come pretty close to explicitly stating that it's more important to remove a bullet from a corpse than save someone's life. Every now and then you have an oddball show that says it's perfectly healthy to leave lead inside the body for years, but I'm not entirely sure that's accurate, either. I don't think I've ever seen a movie or a show where anyone was interested first in making sure the guy would survive, and later removing the bullet.

Jimmy, St. Maarten is great, you should go when you can. We LOVE St. Martin (French side)/Sint Maarten (Dutch side). As a matter a fact, we just go back today from our fourth trip there! The photo of my kids below was taken Tuesday morning at Orient Beach! It was 86 degrees (or 30 as they say!) and sunny!

Just got home about an hour ago...........

Not sure who that might have been. I was by my lonesome out on Genito to Dorset and to the Sheetz there at Flat Rock. Hooked up with Mickey and we headed west.

Yesterday morning was the $hits, i.e, very cold, but today was half way decent. Put a tube in the front tire of a BMW to mend a slit in the sidewall caused by a rock he hit up on the BRP. Not a recommended repair putting a tube in a tubeless tire, but we had no recourse due to the circumstances. Fortunately, I had the tube and all the tools for the temporary repair so he could get home. Still waiting to hear how it went.

If it was two Wees and an FJR it was me, Tom and Brian. That's right around the time we hit that area.

Roger, heard that he was in Keyser about 2:30, so he's almost home.

Was nice seeing you again and glad that you could make it.

I got back home a bit before 11:00 this morning. I had a blast. It was fun riding with Jimmy and Jason on Friday and it's always fun hanging out with everybody around the fire.


What a fantastic weekend... Great camaraderie and amazing riding.


Guy, Thanks for the update on Johnstown Jason. I trust he made it the rest of the way safe and sound.

You boogied! I was still snoozing at 8am... I stopped by a old friends cabin in pleasant view then made a stop at my granddads house off Hopkins Road in Richmond. Made it home around 5pm.


Even though it was a short w/e for me, I had a great time. Great company around the campfire...
