    Good grief, Nutty! I'd LOVE to go to Homer. I've wanted to get there all summer. Unfortunately UAA thinks I should be in the classroom Thursday morning. Any chance you could slide the departure one day to Thursday at noon? If not, then maybe we'll cross paths on the road at some point.

    100,000 tourists can't be wrong, right?

    Sorry we didn't get to cross paths, nuttynu-- I've gotta check ADV a little more often.

    Brrr. I feel cold & wet just thinking about that trip home. I'm turning into a fair-weather rider in my old age!
    We had some pretty wicked wind last night; pretty exciting out there @ Land's End? When the clouds broke today all the mountains across the bay had snow.
    You musta spent the night wondering what the ride home would be like.

    Getting to homer was nice. It rain for a while till Cooper landing. And started sprinkling a bit when I pulled into homer. Even tho I brought my tent and sleeping bag. I'm kinda glad I didn't camp out. It rained that night and man it was cold out. I sneers sleeping at Beluga lake lodge. Price was $80 a night and they were awesome with clean good rooms.
    On the way back it rain eat the Y turn till girdwood. And there's lot of snow on the top of those mountains
