    Well, that wasn't your average commute home story. Tree's and snow replaced cars on a jammed freeway! :D

    If the downed tree's didn't have you, I'll use the word, concerned, I'll bet meeting the snow surely did! In the end you made it. Thanks for sharing your commuting story.

    OK, that does it: I am never again going to try to follow you. :D

    I like the route home- makes me want to commute by motorcycle instead of slab by Ford; Roseburg to Eugene would be funner by log roads.

    I was wondering about that: a touring windscreen on a bike that is ridden exclusively on boulders, and woodpiles? :scratch

    What's not to like? Great day at work, followed by a nice ride with beautiful scenery, an adventure in the dark, and home safe- all in one day!

    That's the pile of clothing I took off because I sweat my ass off building that ramp :lol3

    Yes, it would.
    You just gotta leave a little earlier,
    and get home just a little bit later...

    Dang! I knew I forgot something.
    But, in my defense, I was kinda busy :nod

    Our relationship has always worked better when I follow you, anyway :D

    Well, the standard screen is kinda....broken :evil
    I'm going with the "It's Winter" excuse, even though Spring is here :1drink

    That's how I see it ^^^. Where's the problem?
    It was never actually dangerous. Sure was a BLAST, tho.
