T minus how many days till Aug.3rd Deal's Gap vacation?

Like... ready to roll!! Sick of cold weather already! How many of us and who is giving it a thought? I'd like to see 3 cabins rented and 40 of us there.

It's on my calendar, but I've got a wedding 2 days before, so not sure I'll actually be able to make it down on the 3rd

I REALLY want to tho

I will show up with more than one bike next year instead of none. To hell with sitting at the cabin while everybody else has all of the fun!

I want to have the YSR up and rolling to blast up and down the dragon. That would be loads of fun!

In the end, all you really have is body and mind.

Feeling the same here Charlie, I hate this cold windy wet crap.
Hell Sunday night it even snowed here I can't remember a time when it snowed in TN before Thanksgiving.

I got up around 2:am to take a piss, as I stood there waiting for the flow to start....I heard it.
The f-ing snow & ice hitting the central heat & air unit outside the window.
There was 3 inches on the back deck in the morning

Pretty damn disgusted right now.

I may bring my son on a Suzuki GS500. Depends on how he develops as a rider. I'm thinking of going to the Josh Herrin ranch for some 100 motard action in the spring to work on his skills. $50 for the day and $150 to rent a bike.

That sucks.... it's a balmy 72 here... not a cloud in the sky. I rode my bike to work today. It was COLD!!! 57 degrees and I had to put a long sleeved shirt on under my jacket.

We even had rain a few weeks ago for a night. Fuck winter...

wait... nevermind. Sorry...

oh and on a side note. I'm gonna put a lot more effort into going next year. Should have all my ducks in a nice little row by then. And I'll have vacation time to use up! BOOM!

I was talking to Ray about doing another airplane adventure but if I make it out there it will be a couple of days. At least if I make it this year it wont be a full week of unpaid time off.

That stung.

Although, considering that the south straight tried to smother that little airplane right out of the sky... we may be planning alternate transport.

South Carolina thunderstorms are no joke and they pop up quick. The entire state is shaped like a board leaning towards the ocean. It just makes clouds shoot right out and the humidity makes them form quickly.

252 days. That's 6,048 hours.. Or 362,880 minutes... or 21,772,800 seconds. The earth and us, unless one of us becomes an astronaut, will travel 201,613,808.21917 miles by then in its trip around the Sun. It's all relative, so how far will the Sun travel in relation to the center of its galaxy? And how far will we travel in relation to the theoretical center of the universe? 1. Who cares? 2. Go ride your bike!
