    Lunchy-Times, coming up! I've had a really good chicken parsmasian kind of pizza there (and I'll say it: good chicken pizza is a pretty unusual thing, I generally steer clear). The grilled tuna sandwich was good too.

    If only there were back roads between Apex and Durham... but living on 55, I know that such things are not as plentiful as they once were. :cry

    Hey Anders and whomever else made it out. I caught wind of the get together too late today. Let's try again sometime. I have a few KTM buddies in the RTP area that I DS and offroad with and would be good to catch up sometime.

    On another note...tomorrow night a few of us are going to catch the flick "A Long Way Down" at Brier Creek theater at 7:30. It has Ewan McGregor and his buddy Charlie Borwin riding GS's from Scotland to S. Africa. We may go to Carolina Ale House at Brier Creek prior to get some food/inspiration.

    see below for link to theatre showings per zip code.

    Let's say Episode 2 will be at the same place as Episode 1 for simplicity. See you guys at "A Gracious Plenty" Wednesday 8/6 at 11:30 am. :)

    Cheers,

    Fine by me!

    Yup, we picked up the Baja... was that your WRX in there for AC work too? Apparently the SAME hose failed as on Amy's Baja's AC.

    See everyone tomorrow!

    I'm closing on a re-fi at 11am... I won't make it till 12:30 or so.

    But I did go find some gravel in wake county this past weekend... here's a teaser pic:
