RAIN.

Plan on it.  


Please, no snow. Angry3

I promised the wife, once again, that I would not ride in the snow again.

Least I know what to expect.

It's still way too far off to call it accurately, but I could handle this...

Weather like that can mean only one thing: You are not going to show up for one reason or another  Bigsmile


Unless we really are in another space-time continuum and your rain curse is over.

Doug, I'll stick up for you.  

There was one STN meet which it didn't rain and RDoug was there but it did rain on my way home though.

The other 3 meets I was at with RDoug it rained.  Yeah, come to think of it that's not good odds. Sorry Doug.  Bigsmile

forecast = meh

Word of Caution... for those of you planning on a long mileage day on Friday, if the fog forecast holds up, plan on a much longer day or have an alternate lower elevation backup.

The fog has been horrible on the the BRP and areas nearby for the past three days.  Visibility was 20-40 feet this past weekend.  Seriously.

I used to say... A day riding in the rain is better than a day at work..

Now I'm not sure.. I think being out of work is pretty tough.. I would give up riding in the rain all day to be back at work again..










But I didn't say anything about sunny days!.. Twofinger

Holed up in Staunton. Getting ready to head downtown among the hippies for some grub.

The ride was humid, but dry.
