That was speaking!? All I remember was some drunken gibberish.

So here are a few pics Grace and I took. This was the first time Grace shot pics whilst riding. I think the last time she used a camera may have been in the previous century...

We got to Little River State Campground Sunday afternoon after meandering our way thru New Hampshire and Vermont from Pepperell, MA.

This pic is Monday morning; note prodigious dampness...

Posted Image

Also note happy camper's opinion of dampness...

Posted Image

The rain continued all day. We were pinned to the campsite. No reliable cell service, no books, no tv, no internet...BOOORRRINNG!! Then you start to notice nature details that you are stuck staring at, like this red squirrel sitting in a tree. That little fella sat there all day, and was up there Tuesday morning...

Posted Image

Here's a close up of the squirrel taken on Tuesday...

Posted Image

We dried out Tuesday and did some of the villages & sweepers route.

Posted Image

Wednesday we headed over to Ed's (not Fred's) place for Tech Day. Note the Vermont style billboard Ed helpfully erected to help us find his place...

Posted Image

Posted Image

Ed did an idle sync for us (thanks Ed!), we did some light riding, and came back for the BBQ. Ed's chili was best, altho his son's was good, too.

Somebody drop a nickle?

Thursday about 3am it started pouring...again. :angry2: But it cleared up, we packed up the wet tent and tarp, and decamped to the Commodore's Inn, where we hotelled it for the afternoon. Took a dip in the pool, joined everyone for the buffet.

Friday we did the lakes & upper dacks run with Charlie and Lynn on their silver autoclutch. We caught up to the Champlain islands bunch on Grand Isle and took the obligatory couples pic...

Posted Image

My wife, Lorena Bobbit, took a pick of this church with it's phallic symbol chopped off... :glare:

Posted Image

We zipped past the Canuckistan border...

Posted Image

...and we hit the Saranac Lakes region...

Posted Image

...Lake Placid...

Posted Image

...and Tracy Rd. (No pics, intrepid photographer was busy holding on for dear life.)

Charming ladies on ferry...

Posted Image

...which will soon be obsolete.

Did the Barbeque, no embarrassing pics. Saturday we headed out with Mattster and his buddy Glenn (note his stealth helmet and FJR disguised as a BMW), Aroostook, and us two up and did the 6 Gaps plus optional notch. Matt and Glenn were heading back to Ontario after the last gap, Chris hadn't done the notch yet, so we did the notch, turned around on the other side, and came back to the hotel rather than complete the loop.

Posted Image

Sunday my Daughter's Wedding shower was scheduled for 11:30am, so we hooked up the trailer and blasted out at 7:30, hit the slab, and made it home around 10:30.

We had a great week in Vermont! Thanks NERDS!!

Now, we just need a bunch of "thought bubbles" above each person's head...you know...to know what people are REALLY thinking during this photo shoot. :D



Excellent idea!!

Here's my rendition of what they were all thinking when the picture was taken:

Ya know, guys, while Sooze and I had a GREAT time at NERDS, the whole time we were there, there was something that just wasn't quite right.

It's one of those feelings that is there, but you don't really realize it's there for a while, ya know?

Kinda like when you have a booger hanging out of your nose, but you're not quite sure and don't want to be 'that' guy picking your nose in pulic.

Or when your fly is down and you feel a nice breeze that you don't normally feel.

It's taken a little while, but it finally dawned on me what's wrong.

Look at this picture and tell me who's missing:

All the NERDS... (send me a PM if you would like a larger version of the picture)

Anyone?



Anyone see what's wrong with this picture??




Anyone???



There's no Petey! EVERY damn FJR rally I've been to has had Petey in attendance. Granted Rob did his best impersonation of Petey (sneaking up on me all ninja-style and shit), it just wasn't the same.

Petey - you OK there, bud??

Oh puh-leeze Andy, knock it the Hell off! Rob imitating Petey? Are ye fecking nuts! That would be the exact equivalent of Pee Wee Herman imitating Chuck Norris, no friggin' way; not close to the bullseye and nowhere near the target, Amigo! You slay me, Dude!

BikerGeek, I'm fine. Great pics and wish I could have been there. I'll try to be at the next NERDS for sure.
There is no better therapy, than a ride.
