    Hope to take my afternoon meetings from the passenger seat of my van while my buddy drives.

    Hopefully be there by 7pm tonight!

    RAZR you like good beer? I packed a few special ones.

    That's a good story, have another one?
    What I thought was dirt in my eye, was actually a blood clot from a busted blood vessel resulting from a PVD. Look it up. Still can't figure out how that happened :huh

    Other than it looks like I'm continuously looking through a black spider web, which if I blink properly I can form into a unicorn, it's just a big PITA and has never had any pain or discomfort. Doc says no heavy lifting, jostling, jumping, or running for another week to be sure that I don't have a full retinal separation. So that pretty much leaves out holding my own dick to pee, humping (Which I'm still doing plenty of), kangaroo boxing and yelling the "N" word in Compton.

    You all have fun and after I get back from Kauai in a few weeks I'll show you all how to get an impacted spine. :eek1 I'll demonstrate on RAZR.

    No, they changed the date on us, discussed earlier in the thread. Gate will be closed. We'll still camp and drink and ride. We just won't take the final road from ~10k to ~12.5k, which could be done in a passenger car anyway.

    We pulled into browns today around 5, great ride from Sequoia (Three Rivers) thru Yosemite over Tioga pass to Mono Lake. Ice Cream stop at the Mono Cone then on to camp, just over 300 miles, the new top end on the 640 worked great.
    Very Poor visability with all the smoke from recent fires in the SNF.

    Awesome time. Great meeting everyone and riding some fun trails. Long drive home, got pulled over by the CHP for an expired trailer plate then got a flat outside Ridgecrest. Major crash there too and had to follow the 5 mile line of cars all the way to the 15. Then a fire off the freeway that everyone had to stop and look at. :asshat

    Well worth the drive up and back. I'm freaking tired. Will post some picts later. Great meeting and riding with you FF's.
