Haven't been able to get back to Floriduh yet (waiting on new grandbaby to arrive), but might have to take up skiing again, since they just had 8 feet of new snow at Crystal Mt. (up the road 30 miles from Enumclaw where I am now):

Touring by motorbike, more than any other mode of transportation, allows us to be more fully engaged with people, culture and the natural world - especially the bugs.
