    So many thanks to all of the organizers and those lending a hand when needed. I'm especially grateful for Drif coming to pick me up in Hayward to haul my damaged and medicated carcass back to camp. What a saint! Thanks also to Romatsu and Reveille for leading me out to the glorious Hayward ER. I wanted to visit Hayward again one day, just not under those circumstances!

    Friday morning I woke up, stood up and had instant major pain again. Loaded the rest of my crap up, drove home and went back to the ER. One of my ribs had finally broken. Still not sure if it had been a hairline before and I finished it off that morning or if the muscles had been holding it together the entire time. Anyway, at least I still got in well over 1,000 miles this week and over 350 of those after I unintentionally evacuated my bike!

    Nice to put some faces to names, make new friends and meet up with some old ones again. Here's a random smattering of pics:

    Copper Harbor breakfast. A few minutes later the wife and I were banging the skid plate into the pavement on Brockway Mtn. tmp_30481-2015-08-17 08.30.082055128433.jpg

    Was surprisingly dry out there. tmp_30481-FB_IMG_1439817101200-1736977581.jpg

    Found some sand to play in.

    Got there early, had the place to ourselves and got on some pretty good fish right away, Mrs. Moose had a big Wally on the hook, got over excited and broke the line in about 5 seconds, to her credit, the reel was set to full drag.

    Papa Lobster's son Nathan and soon to be grill friend, shortly after this pic was taken, he stepped in an underground bee's nest, should have seen him dance, think he got stung 3 times, ouch.

    To my wife's credit, 25 years of me teaching her to fish, she landed this one, yes that's a Blue Gill, hybrid I believe from what locals have told me, they cut the reproductive organs out of them and release them back into the lake, they get pretty big, I caught 2 hybrids in Munising Michigan a couple of years ago, we put them back in the lake for someone else to enjoy.

    Thanks Bonebag, Brit, and everybody else. I had a fantastic time. I rode, I drank, I laughed, I cried, I pooped a little.

    It was all good.
