I think with the wet spring and mild winter we going to have a really slick batch of slime this year. That stuff came back really quickly after the drought.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

Well, so much for me making this. I was looking forward to riding that trail I helped cut.

My sister has planned the memorial for her husband on the 5th down in Port Aransas. So I'll be down on the beach. The upside is that I wasn't planning on making Schick's send off and since I won't see him at this event I changed my schedule and I'll do Schick's ride.

Yeah, mine shot off like a cork out of a bottle. Had to catch it before it went over the side of the low water crossing and down the river. Had to bungee cord it back on. Freak'in Paluxy is very cold by the way.

Well Meridian Creek is not exactly a spa either

Mudclod, What road were you on when you went down?

Thank you, much appreciated, I am still lurking on the threads, just waiting for my opportunity to pounce so to speak. October sounds good.
