Hey, Jason. Just talked to my daughter in New Haven. She said she and her roomies checked their non-perishable provisions. Had Halloween candy and beer. Good to go.

Sounds about right. Whiskey, beer, and whiskey. Some scratch made marinara, meatballs, and pasta too.

Bring it.

I'll take some pics if I can. ADV guys up here planning a hurricane ride on Tues/Wed.

Tie down the bike or bring it inside. Thought about you when I was running some of the same roads we did last year as I did RTB3 this weekend. Hope you are stilling hitting some dirts roads sometimes.

I've been pleased with the Olympia stuff I've had the pleasure of wearing. That said I wasn't wearing any Olympia gear this weekend. I was going to buy an Olympia Moab jacket before I picked up the Sliders Quest 3.

Here's a small AST:

And an XS:

Olympia makes some good stuff, IMHO. I've been checking out the Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 jacket for Cindy. She has the matching pants and I thought it would be better to buy the set.

Warning on Olympia - its sized for the US market, so its a full cut. Cindy is petite, so the Olympia pants I ordered for her were too large. She was happy with her Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 pants.

I've had good luck with Revzilla in the past.
