I do, though this was my first return since November. I have some ST friends in Ohio that kept me abreast of the weather this year, and I'm glad I decided to stay out here for the duration. I still couldn't believe how much snow was left when I pulled into my driveway. A lot of it melted while I was home, but there was at least 8" in my yard Tuesday.

8" ??? Out east of here my parents are still measuring the depth in feet.

All of Ohio saw a pretty snowy February but ofcourse the snow belt would not be out done. Here in the city we may see the ground by the end of the week if the weather holds.

I imagine the weather does make it more difficult for longer trips. 40F is pretty cold without the full protection of a wing.

I have alotta friends that ride Wings...(I did too fer a short bit)...and I know that riding a Wing ain't enough to keep you warm...

So I'm betting that there's 'electric underwear' involved here somewhere.

I have a full set of Gerbing's and Warm-n-Safe. Last January I left Casey IL at 0 degrees and rode to Canton (474 miles) and it was -4 when I pulled into the garage at my house. That night it went to -14, but I didn't ride the next day!!!

TAG!




Terra Cotta Vineyards, 2285 Rix Mills Road, New Concord, Ohio.

I found this there....







This N.A. tagging is less stressful than Ohio Tag-o-rama. After I got my greedy mitts on the Egg I took my good old time on the trip home because I knew I couldn't get Bruced. Besides I didn't want to be responsible for scrambling the Egg.....

I put my stamp of approval on the Egg.........



Added a momento from Ohio so everyone would know that we are indeed worthless nutz....



Took stock of the rest of the items from all over the country......



Then I hid my treasure.

The next resting (nesting) place for the Egg is this location.....







Here's another view from the Lookout that's located on Bellevue St. ........




Marietta is the oldest city in Ohio and it lies at the confluence of the Ohio and Muskingum rivers. It's a beautiful little town with a lot of history and I just happened to be born and raised here.

Just to the rear of my bike is a viewing area that's built on a concrete slab.......



See the rotting timber that's poking it's nose from under the slab? The Egg is resting on the left side of the timber, just out of sight and hidden by some dry leaves.

Have at it............................
