No worries about a bike, mate. I drove the Lincoln to the last one (for several combined reasons).

It works.. I have sold a few bikes in the past and the potential buyers wouldn't come down the driveway. Just down past the gate is a 2x4 with nails just underneath the gravel. Trust me Mark the perimeter is secure at all times.

It was weird enough watching the water rising and a few folks having to move tents & bikes. But for me the topper was when I got back from Sweetwater and joined everyone under the pavilion and saw a salamander crawling up one of the table legs to get out of the water creeping into the pavilion.

The amazing thing about that last video was that Kurt's tent, don't remember the make/model (Northface), was absolutely waterproof during that storm. I mean, even the grass in the vestibule was bone dry.

That's exactly what got me spoiled from a tent camper to a cabin camper. Philip & Ellen ruined me at Cruso when they took off early to dodge a big and wet frontal system moving in. Philip threw me the keys and said get my tent packed while it was still dry.

Hey! It's the only one that Randy and I went to... we freekin' drowned that day: rode the Cherohola up to the top and then down the Tail O the Dragon. Couldn't figure out why we had the whole thing to ourselves..... Good (WET!) memories!!

Since I skipped out on the last OS Rally I've had time to really work on a new face for the upcoming gathering.....

I decided on one of my long time heroes - Keith Richards in Pirates of the Caribbean. A guy that doesn't usually sport facial hair.




The bitch of it is not gonna be tying in the bangles, but dying all the white and gray stuff black.

rooms at the Farmhouse Inn

For those of you not able to get a cabin, and don't like tent camping, etc... you can stay at my B&B, Farmhouse Inn, we are just off the town square, a few doors down from the Tellico Grains bakery. sorry I don't have any bikes old enough for you guys tho..

So far all three rooms are open for this weekend.

The freeze of 2008



The ice on Sunday morning in 2008 was a sight to behold.
