Well, err, umm, we haven't seen Matt in wrist casts either. Of course, it could just because his are so limp.
Oops. That's Ted I'm thinking about.
Never mind.

Morning everyone, I'm at the El Patio Restaurant in Presidio having Chorizo n Eggs (the green sauce is awesome Albie) then gotta back track a bit to BBRSP. Nice leisurely start to an already beautiful day. It's supposed to take two hours to traverse the 27 miles between Highway 67 and Park HQ. Gonna take a full thermos of coffee.

I just turned on my SPOT, link is in my sig.

well there is that.

That snow is esp beautiful when not at my house but still beats muddy basement and gravel in front yard.

Well, if that 40% chance of rain forecast is anything like the 10"-12" of snow forecast we had for X-Mas, I'd say I'm not worried.

So, that means you are IN no matter what, Albie? This is Talequah weather forecast: Snow would make a crappy ride back to NWA from Talequah after dark!

At least we can watch Charlie's progress thru his SPOT he activated (in his sig line). He's almost to the lodge!
He was held up by having both trailer tires going flat, ruined spare, ruined a rim, and got a flat on the SUV. Ended up buying new trailer tires and a new trailer wheel. Doc, did you sprinkle roofing nails out there?? (apparently he ran into a bunch south of Cleburne).

So, are you just gonna head east when we hit 62 off Oakdale Dr, or were you going to the restaurant gathering post-ride in Talequah first?
