    Looks like todays rain will be where we are going, when we are going there. Should we set a puss out rain destination?
    After all...
    Way back in the day, when I was a did the MSF instructor thing, the chief said "If they'll play baseball in it, we'll ride in it". Then the bigger chiefs heard about that and there were delays for all rain.:deal

    I can't find any forecast that calls for hard rain, so I'm inclined to stick with the plan. If we hit the road and it starts pouring we can pull off somewhere.

    In the future on a first Monday, if there's a hard rain, maybe we can designate an in-town location to go raid. Shoot, maybe we could do that anyway. :freaky

    Only brought it up because we hadn't...

    I've come home in the rain many times, it's harder to raise the gumption to head out into the rain.

    9:00 PM, home safe and sound. I know I said I was going go I-70, but I used as much of MD 144 as I could for fun.

    Enjoyed the ride out, dinner and the company.

    Hope I didn't make an ass of myself...:rofl

    BTDT, just no witnesses in my case. Nobody got in the way as gravity exerted it's influence I hope?

    Just walked in the door... Found the campground, couldn't find the tag:cromagroad around for a bit, then came home. It was a nice ride and a great RTE. The pie I picked up for Jodi was a cobbler by the time she got it.

    BTW, if you go looking for the tag do not take Roller Rd. unless you want to do some DS riding:ricky

    Looks pretty cool to me. Ride might be a bit long, but not overly so. :evil First monday of next month is the 3rd - my girl is leaving for 2 months in europe on that date, so I might be a miss unless she's flown off already & I'm footlose & fancy free. :rayof

    Hey, this the joint?

    Yes that's the place. As to the length of ride, I understand. There are a couple of options to shorten it up, especially on time. As Mick said, the ride back could be on I-95 for those who want to make it back quickly. And the way the tolls are laid out, it would be free on the way back.
