    Growing up in OK, I have had a few "close encounters" myself.:wink:

    In the mid-seventies we had twin twisters travel north to south along Peoria and Lewis, in Tulsa. Our house was halfway between the two.:evil
    Dad and I were standing on the front porch watching them until they got very close.

    C'mon Albie. A Hurricane Party is a thing of beauty. Sitting on the back porch drinking beerz while 3 million gallons of water rush by ya horizontally.

    I hear ya Charlie. A hurricane really ain't much fun, but I'll take one of those over a tornado anytime.

    The desert has a beauty all its own. Wish I could see it in the Springtime when it's in bloom.

    Yeah, it's good times. Checked the weather for the coast this morning. 70 degrees. YES! We're meeting lots of good folks everywhere we go too and that certainly adds. Oh, great Mexican food too. Love it.

    I'd like to know more about this route. Sounds nice. But then again, I never seem to ride anymore so who am I kidding?

    you could print it out, hang it on the wall in the garage, and sit on your bike and make "vroom vrooom!" noises

    I'm not a bit surprised.

    The traffic north in Rogers/Bentonville is like a Nascar race, high speed bumper to bumper.

    I used to commute from Lowell to Walmart HQ, on a Vulcan 750 and took the back roads, instead of I540. That road was a racetrack, 12 years ago.

    Or just sit here on the innernets and look at pitchers. Like usual. Man, I got the winter blues. I hates me some winter. And it isn't even that bad here, compared to Minnesota, where I used to live until I could get the flyin' hell out of that frozen shitbox. Florida has the best winters in the lower 48, IMHO. Hurricanes? Meh. I sat through three of them in 2004. No biggie. Unless you lose your roof.
