Yeah, I'm bitter and grumpy about this...
Lie to them.

Seriously.

Or just omit the bad stuff.

On the brighter side,

I thought when the paperwork said we would be picked up at the airport by a limo I was thinking "Yeah, a mini-van being driven by some kid named Juan." Surprise, surprise. A full stretch Lincoln limo pulls up, driver jumps out and put the luggage in the trunk, opens up the rear door for us and says "There's water and ginger ale in the cooler. Enjoy the ride, it'll take about 90 minutes. My name is Juan." No joke! Middle age fella who didn't utter a peep the entire trip.

The hotel is top notch, much nicer than I would pay for on my own. But through it all, All I wanna do is get back on a bird and head back to the hills.
Wow, that's some HMO you got there.

I sure hope things go well for ya up there.

There's only 2 tools you really need. A hammer and duct tape. If it moves and isn't supposed to, duct tape it. If it's supposed to move and it doesn't, beat it with the hammer until it does.

If a hammer won't fix it you've got an electrical problem.

Unless you're removing/installing a stator.

Jay, that's when you put electrical tape on the hammer head.

What a night. I tok Cooper to an Open Practice yesterday from 5-9 at River Valley MX. It's in Watts OK. I never even had time to get geared up and ride some laps, I was too busy messing with him. Was a good time but I'm pooped. Poor kid had never ridden in real loamy dirt like they have there.

You did the important part. You still don't fall down as good/often as the rest of us so a lack of practice is good for your humility....
