    I am leaving work at 5.

    I am riding to the gas station to meet up with my wife and load too much food. I may be meeting a riding buddy there. He has a street bike and wants to ride and camp with us. He lurks here. (I told him the Farm rules...:deal ) I also told him if he drops his cb 750 in the gravel, too bad. (I am bringing a camera...)

    I should be there by 6:30 pm.
    Should be drunk soon after.:1drink

    Anyone bringing a grill for the fire? To BBQ on?

    There was a dude that showed up at one of the rides on an old Honda cruiser. Nice guy and a damn good rider. He kept up fine in the gravel and never did drop that big rig. Chain will remember him. :ear
