    Thank-you Mr. Clown. Looks better than the 2" of fresh snow here the last couple days.

    Nice pics, and looks like great fun.

    No chance of snow in these parts. When I thought to look at the thermometer yesterday (after it had cooled down) it read 105*. "That explains why it seems so much hotter today...':huh

    Today's forecast calls for 2 more inches of dust...

    I think I'll go outside and shovel some more snow from the huge pile I still have from shoveling the roof off. I figure if I keep tossing it out of the shade and into a sunny spot it will all be gone in early May!

    Stay safe (bastages) :lol3 !

    A little disappointed in the day. Whizzerwheel billed it as maybe good riding in the morning but the afternoon was prolly going to be on the lame side. He lies.:D Some of the best riding in the coastal region so far.:clap:clap:clap

    Not many pics but a few videos. They'll have to wait, though. Nice rip today.

    18 degrees in NH this AM...

    I think I'd rather have 18 degrees than 118 degrees... well maybe not for riding...

    Amazingly enough, the temps aren't overwhelming but then maybe the riding just keeps your mind off of it.

    It's funny how an image never quite captures a steep grade. Maybe this might give a better idea if what is frequently encountered.

    The road where this was taken from on the other side of the valley was pretty much a mirror image.

    Was down there just over a year ago but not for riding. Saw tons of bikes on the road, drove me crazy being in a car! Been thinking I need to do a riding trip down there someday.

    Home safe and sound. SCS picked us up in Boston last night.

    With homemade pizza to boot.:bow:bow:bow

    Delays due to weather in Orlando backed our CR departure up a bit. Woulda been a crying shame to have to extend the trip.:lol3

    Between Customs and the delays we barely made our connecting flight.

    Luggage didn't.:becca

    It did, however, arrive on the next flight:clap which wasn't too far behind so a handful of us waited for it.:ddog Made for a late night.:snore

    Got in the truck to drive home and realized I forgot how.:lol3 I know. Some of you claim I never knew how to to begin with.

    Guess I'd better show my face at work today. Not sure who the idiot was who planned that but I guess it's all part of the reality that makes these things possible. Not to mention eating on a day to day basis.

    I may post up a little more later. I've got a couple more pictures I think.

    Pura Vida!

    :D Nice!!!! very interested in your trip, looking to do something similar someday. My good friend winters down there, but he's not a rider.

    PM coming your way.
