Thanks, Rick and Tony. Thanks all. We are all okay. Mom went peacefully, and of course, is, and will continue to be, very much missed.

Brother Pete, i think a fireside confab in the near woods is in order. With some top-shelf Chuckleheads and FF's gathered. Good men and good souls to share loss with.

I know


We're here mang

Thumb Thanks, men.

Even with my limited ADV participation, I am amazed at how great all of you dudes and gals are.

Thank you all, again, SO much.

As with anything like this -- there are many logistic issues to be considered, so, as many of you know, it will be a while before I can make a fire-side-bullshit-session; -- and boy, that sounds like something I would like to do. Maybe we can gin up something semi-local and semi-not-official. Hell it could be after hours, no bikes, just bullshit and booze with a few designated drivers. Hell, what do I know, I am almost as inept as inept is.

I finally got back home this morning. I am now in my space, with my little buddy Pointer just happy that Dad is back. Got the man cave AC pumpin', an ice cold 18 pack, and my zillion good songs on my PC. I was missing my music these last six days... it's so quiet over there it seems.

Gotta do laundry, and take advantage of this quiet time.

YB - Pedro

Hey POGs, I'm planning on riding Ye Olde KLR over to Cape San Blas Friday--the weather's supposed to be good, and I've been meaning to get over there for quite some time now. In addition to the state park's regular campground, they've got a primitive camping area that ya hafta hike a mile to get to, and it's only $5 a night. The park ranger told me over the phone, yeah, those primitive campsites are, uh, very secluded; ya won't need a reservation. My kinda place, my kinda price.

I'll prolly ride EG all the way to 331, jump on 20 at Freeport, then 77 down to PC, then 98 over to Mexico Beach, where I'll eat a late lunch at the Fish House. Then it's an easy 25-mile cruise over to San Blas and a thorough sunset inspection. Break camp not too early Sat. AM, and head up to Vernon FL for lunch. Seen the movie, but never been there. Then north to 90 and west to Crestucky, where I'll pay my baby sister a visit and arrive back home by dark or thereabouts.

OK--so I know this is sorta late notice, but I just recently decided for sure I was gonna do this. The weather's the deciding factor, and if it changes for the worse all bets are off. But if any of this sounds good to any of you FF's, well consider yerselves invited. First shot of Kraken is on me. OK well maybe the second shot too.
