    DAMN- is it almost that time already?

    Sunday December 4. Parade pulls out of the Dan Ryan Woods parking lot at 930. 5 min away from my house.

    Same deal as last year- meetup in my driveway for coffee/donuts/tamales ~8. Leave 830 or so to get over 'dere and hang out with the pirates, bears, and vikings for a while. Bring your camera!

    Anyone? :ear

    Lets hope for some better weather this year. If it is not snowing or raining hard I'll be there this year.

    I'm in if I'm not on-call that weekend. I took on-call for Thanksgiving so I should be good through the rest of the year.

    Cool. This is definitely a play-it-by-ear thing. Could be snowed in, could be warm and sunny. Last year the morning was icy but by afternoon the sun was out and everything was melted.

    I felt the weather was good last year. No real accumulation of snow in the morning, and very nice in the afternoon. Will be there riding something...

    Looks to be a beautiful day tomorrow sunny and a high of 9.

    Baseballs, packs of Red Man and bottles of bourbon are ready to go for the "kids".

    Weather was perfect, lots of motorcycles showed up great organization and all for a wonderful cause. As far as seeing people drinking beer before parade, and riding in shorts it was one of the better ones I attended. Now it's good time to winterize my bike and wait for spring to come.
