Good stuff Don.

You have great taste. Shauna, on the other hand... rolleyes.gif

Did ya happen to notice Petey's shirt? He's one of those guys that just talks with his actions and his actions are darn quick.

That ride, even with you leading [oh shit, alright, maybe because you were leading], was at a good pace and just one heck of a lot of fun.

I have to say this was one a the best WFO's. Hell, who knows, maybe thats the way I feel after every one.

Anyhows, great ride report, mmmm pie!

You are never to old to learn something stupid.

What's the story behind the Microsoft Vista helmet stickers?

Last summer we had to deploy approx 50 new Windows boxes. My crew thought it funny to sticker my helmet with Vista 'cause it sucks so bad. We were deploying XP Pro. Being Mac lovers, they thought it hilarious my 500 dollar helmet has sucky Vista stickers on it.

Little did they know that's how I kept my 'bean' count of how many boxes went out the door per day! rofl.gif

Thanks for the excellent write up. I wish I could have come, I was ready, Tyler was willing, but that small voice in the back of my head said stay home, my family needed me.

It's my loss, I'm soaking up all these ride reports, it makes me antsy to get back on the road again and meet all these cool people.

Soon !

Take your time to heal, my friend. Your body will love you more that way, trust me?
There will be other rides, other days - pick and choose the best for you - but then again, I know you know...

Awesome ride report Carver or whateverthehellyourhandle is... wink.gif I'm with the rest of the Seattle crew, the ride Friday was fantastic with a great group, fun pace and spectacular roads. We still were talking about it over dinner in Bend on Sunday.

When you have a chance, let us repay the debt with a PNW ride. There's some pretty good stuff up here too.

Don, thanks for the ride report. And also the great ride you took us on, after the story of your ride as a young man I was humbled to have been along.

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
