It is supposed to rain Friday nite.  Hopefully cleared out by Saturday morning.  I don't think either team is capable of much womping this year. >:(

For any folks heading up from around or below the Tampa area, I'm springing from my house at about 6:30. Anyone wanting to roll up 75 for a couple hours to Interlachen then onto the Shack are welcome to swing by. Eight eight one two Aberdeen Creek Circle, Riverview.

Local weather shows this front picking up speed today and getting on through here tonight.  Should be good riding weather albeit a little chilly.  Don't worry Floridians, it will be above 40. :-\

Looks like I might be out.  :(
A former co-worker passed away and the service is early tomorrow afternoon. No way can I make it for lunch and get back to Sanford in time. I'm torn between what I wanna do (ride) and what I should do (pay my respects)! He made it to 92 and was a hell of a nice man. He showed me a lot of kindness during my early years with the power company and in that crowd, that was a rarity!
