    split 'em lengthwise, they'll cover twice as much.
    of course, you'd be sitting at a bandsaw for a long time.:D

    I looked on googled maps and put the little man in the street view, right about where you said,,and I don't see "turn the corner , 2nd house, and look for my vehicles" as a viable method of any real expectation of accurate on target arrival. The first house beside the big blue church would work,, if you had a big blue church next door.
    Therefore,, if I do attempt to attend your gathering,it will be hit or miss,,me riding up and down, forth and back in a gradient search pattern.

    it is up to you to run out into the street and thrust a shovel handle thru my REAR spokes to alert me as to my arrival at the correct location. I promise to stop very soon after,,if not immediate like!,,
    Oh, answer to the question.

    Oaxaca Pepper
    Spicy Jimmy Nardello
    ch ch che cherry bomb
    Ancho boom boom
    Chipotle sauce
    Killer Joe,(not recommended for life forms as we know them) (sub-note: always carry a bottle of this for attack/escape scenarios) ,,"STUPID HOT!", was the description I got from the maker of wonderful tastes

    I could add my flavorites and a full rating of each, but I am biased.
    My personal fave is the Oaxaca, Jimmy and che haven't yet settled out in my competition,,see that? there's a tit in the middle of that word!,,no wonder so many people like compeTITion,,everybody likes titties! The lucky ones grew up on a pair of them,, sadly, I was allergic to milk of any kind, so I was raised on beer. Oh, the sorrows that I see,,,

    missed tonight's meeting cuz I was over at Superpacman's watching (mostly) him install my crash bars...

    Paxton's a cool kid and his Old Man outta be proud of his son. I'm older'n his Dad BTW. Holy CRAAAP...I guess I'm older'n EVERYONE now it seems.

    There was carpet on the floor of his heated garage...CARPET I tell ya! I haven't had a garage in over 13yrs much less a heated one with carpet! If I'd have had a pillow I'd have just gone nighty-night right there next to the Klr....which looks a little more...'substantial' now with the bars installed.

    Thanks again dude!

    I just got home and the ride to Brownsville was drier and ccccolder tonight. I pretty much swam home Monday night. Tuesday pretty much the same. I found out exactly where my gear ISN'T waterproof. The ride seems a little longer on these rainy nights. No deer to scare me but I dang near hit a frikken nutria that decided at the last second to reverse his motation. Close...but no hit.

    Status check Ken?

    Y'all have a great T-Day tomorrow and if you get stumped when it comes your turn to say what you're thankful for....
    I go by Czechplease and....you know me. (what....that's not enough to be outta-yer-mind grateful?)

    Went riding on Dead Bird Day, was great after....since....
    When was the last time it wasn't raining? 50 deg and sunny over at Alsea.

    FYI - the road past Alsea Falls is CLOSED. They have a big ditch with water in it closed. It's about 1 1/2 miles SE of the Falls. No way through there unless your first name is Evil and last name is Pastrana. Sign say it will be closed until January 31sth. No materials or equipment anywhere in sight, just a big ditch.

    I had a tiny turkey, and ate the whole thing!
    In fact, I cooked two, and nearly ate half the second one. (Cornish game hens),,baked potato, home canned beans green, (thank you Louise) ,,Jiffy cornbread mix for muffins, and a slice of punkin pie from the cafe around the corner.
    Other than pie seeking,( I called ahead, it was ready before I got there) I never left the building all day, and other than sweats, I never even got dressed all day.(had to put something on to go get pie!)
    That's what happens when you sleep in until after 10:30!
    Thankful for the peace and quiet in my area, the sawmill across the street is quiet for the holiday, and traffic on the main drag out front is nearly silent,,and also very few sirens today,that has to be a good thing. Even the train horns that I hate with a passion seem to be toned down for the day.\
    A quiet day is very rare on my corner, so I am very thankful for it.Peace all, pleasant dreams.
