3 p.m. on Friday. Or when I get my shit together.

Bike is packed and off of work early tomorrow. I may wander some of the GPS track that I posted--that is, if either of my Garmins are working.

I wasn't, even though crossing states in the rain has lost it's luster a bit.

I will also point out it is not raining in that picture.
I'll be on the RT, turning it over to 128K miles, and it doesn't get stuck in stuff like that.
Mostly because I would not take it in stuff like that. The DR was doing fine too, as long as I skipped off the top of the humps.

Ahhh grasshoppa, Houston's forecast has nothing to do with the campground at the Hiawetha rally. I've got my rain gear packed and ready for action.

New Battery in the GS last night and bags packed.

In the words of a more famous Tone than I, Let's Do It!!

Houston is right next to Money Creek, I am fairly certain they share weather.
However, I only have over 20 years experience attending the rally.
Teach me Sensei.

Well, I thought it was dark, as I couldn't see what I was throwing up, but I will defer to your judgement.
No, I'll be good this time, no fucking soup for dinner.

What beautiful weather, too. Saw a few rallyers go by in Northfield, felt bad I didn't get to go.
