I should take a terra firma sample like I did at the PHRB event.
George (Smalls), I'd enjoy riding along with you.

curioussteve and +1, you might want to follow along...if...

Hey ADVCoot, +1 and I would be honored to follow you around on your TW200--- count us in on the 2014 LooseNut! I did the 2013 in Indiana earlier this month and had a ball on Sunday... the Saturday didn't go as well for me..... that's how I looked when my electrics quit and it started to rain Sat morning!

+1 had a TW200 for many years and he never fell down and I couldn't figure out why. So on his advice I downgraded from a DR650 to an XT350... and I still crashed. So I upgraded to a DR350...and I still crashed. So I downgraded to a DR200, and guess what? I NEVER crashed!! All the while +1 was telling me, "smaller is better" but would I listen? +1 and BigDog are RIGHT ON! I think you will love the TW200. Speaking of BigDog, I put about 400 miles on my WR250 this past weekend following him around S. IL as he worked out the route for the 2014 LooseNut. Although I used to live in S. IL and have lived across the river in Cape Girardeau for more than 30 years, he showed me stuff I had never seen and scenic views and mud puddles that I didn't know existed. (That's my WR going through one-- I'm just the passenger) We also enjoyed two nights of camping and guitar pickin and singing at lovely Fern Cliff State Park-- one of the prettiest places on the planet, if you ask me! And BigDog, you are hereby appointed Chief Entertainer Dude for the LooseNut, because I couldn't stump you with requests for old songs... you know every rock and roll song from the 60s forward, and some I never heard! And all this talk in previous posts about who is cooking what is making me hungry, but we must remember who is leading this ride!!... do we really want to feed BigDog BEANS?!? Like I say ADVCoot, I'll follow you and YOU follow BigDog!

Mrs. Dog Calling Buffalo

Mrs. Dog found a Buffalo herd on the Loosen Nut route.
She had never seen a Buffalo before---and it was hilarious.

Count me in, can hardly wait!

Had a great time in Indiana even though Curiousteve had problems and left me on my own on Saturday. Sunday was good after I dispatched that Deer problem before the super Breakfast!. Looking forward to Big Dogs trails closer to home.

...and I bet you didn't know that Deb was a hair stylist too.
I actually had a head full of hair in 1978; Deb always cut my hair when I lived in Mt. Vernon, IL.

BigDog, please make sure you take Mrs.Dog on all your route scouting trips..........you may be out there uncovering a little old county road or an abandoned bridge, but we dont want to miss out on anything like this either..........tell Mrs.Dog to keep up the great work and let her know we are sure looking forward to some of that apple pie!

That's good to know! Hey BigDog, tell Deb we're bringing a stool and apron in 2014, and she is appointed the "StylingGal" (sounds much better than StylingDog). I know I will be in need of sprucing up because I'm retiring next week and I'm not getting a haircut until the first weekend of Nov 2014 Anyone else need an appointment?
