    (speaking for myself because I have no bleepin' idea where on earth the current tag is).

    I saw some dry pavement last night, maybe I'll be able to get one of the bikes out this w/e.

    Until the sun hits the asphalt, black ice is a serious threat anywhere melt crosses the road, which is most of roads in and out of my place.

    Helped a dumbass yesterday in a cage that must have thought the posted speed limit was OK only to find himself up on the bank against a tree, no real damage. Good thing I carry all them straps in the truck......I should charge for this stuff but don't, need to keep the good karma account full......


    Watching my 7yo daughter play laser tag and enjoying it at the moment......she's kicking most of the boys butts! Teaching her how to shoot an Air Rifle has gone a long way since shes hitting all her targets.

    Holy crap, yeah! Had a lot of fun, but the gravel roads in my county are no longer gravel, they're mud.

    Went to check up on my favorite water crossing:

    Quite a bit higher than it usually is, and with a little more of a current:

    The road going in was 85% clear of snow and ice, but boy was it sloppy! :uhoh

    Hey guys, Bluemont rider checking in. My folks have a place up off 601 about 3 miles from 7. Love all those dirt roads back there toward Philomont and Trappe Farm. Now I just need to get a plated bike running. Currently only my yz125 is operational and I don't think it's the right tool for the job.
