AST jacket was remarkably dry. Acerbis waterproof pants were okay but after a while of sitting in water they soak through. It's about 1 1/4 hours , but I stopped a couple times.

Allright Mr. Boatman!!! Way ta go the extra mile.

Ya know, you could write an story about this, and familys could sit around the Christmas tree and read it together, out loud........very inspirational!!!!

So kick back, put on some warm clothes & slippers, and snuggle up with a cup of hot chocolate...and an egg...Lord knows you've earned it! Well done!

Glad you made it, Scott!

You've probably gone back and re-read the thread a little but in this game it's customary to get some corny shots of you and the egg hanging out while you ponder the next location. Yes. Dead serious. The cornier the better, IMHO.

Perfect opportunity to take 'him' over to Team Ghetto Headquarters and/or your shop if you're at a loss.

Nice grab!

Nice grab Boatman, Hope your drying out nicely.
I'm riding to Florida Sunday morning so there's much to do.

I'd like to bring Mr. Egg.

Oh the things I do for ADV!!!!!

You want corny, I'll give it to Ghetto Masta Crankshaft for a few days!!


Okay I'll bite....

We dried out by the fire for a while....



Woke up and took ibuprofen, vitamins and cold medication...



Then spent some time on the treadmill....




Later at work, I'll teach Mr Egg how to varnish a boat.

Looks like Mr. Egg is in good hands.

He may not want to head South to Florida being as he's so comfy.

Have to agree!

Too bad that RedPower decided to abscond with the duck again. I'm starting to think that his attachment to Ducgonzo is a little perverted! Would have made a great traveling companion for the egg!

Maybe you should let it go South for the winter. Otherwise, it might just get snowed in!

The winter window is fast closing for me. I'll take it south if it's a reasonable ride and find.

I'm packing now

Okay, last of the corny stuff. If my wife knew about this, she'd declare me gay and divorce me!!

The first order of business at work was to get my name on Mr. Egg........




Then it was time to get to work and teach the little guy how to varnish.

Tools of the trade...



Admiring Mr. Eggs work...



Btw...if you need valves adjusted on an old flat head,,, Mr Eggs your ,,,, ummm,,,, egg...

Nice boat Boatman
Looks like you've got yourself a Garage-Mahal there.
That's one smart Mr.Egg too. You better watch out or he may escape and run off to warmer climes while he has the chance.
