Had a nice leisurely ride home. Stopped several times to answer texts and messages, but didn't have a care in the world about doing it. Stopped to smell the roses at a few spots that I just fly by when on the bike.
Brad, I took a game in case there was a rainy day. 1 to 4 players can play. Each player gets a handle with a button. Start with button on base of game. Music plays, lights flash. When it stops, first person to hit their button wins. Last person to hit there button looses. The loser gets shocked! If you try to cheat and push your button early, you lose and get shocked. I turned up the voltage and started the game. The shock was so startling that the loser fell out of his chair and onto the floor. He is sitting at the head of the table.
Thank you for the great time guys, I'm sorry for bailing out so quickly Sunday morning, I was behind schedule as it was.
I made it home, but a lot later than planned and I was exhausted. I should have just stayed in Suches like I wanted, Sunday ended up sucking quite a bit. It turned out that my tent did get wet inside Saturday night from that storm. Either the rain fly wasn't doing its job, or it was blowing in from underneath it. Some water did puddle up on the low side, so my sleeping bag absorb a bit of it. I was able to sleep on the dry end so that was fine, but every gust of wind sprinkled me with more wetness. To top things off, at 4AM a limb broke off the tree I was camping under and landed in the stream waking me back up. Once I figured out what it was, I was a bit unsettled, as that was too close for comfort. In the morning I went to get out of my tent and there as a decent size branch laying next to my tent, so my fear wasn't exactly unfounded.
The drive home was horrible too, multiple major accidents on I-81, I spent at least 3 hours sitting at a dead stop. Traffic is always bad with random accidents on Sundays, but this time was worse than anything I've seen before. Next time I'll just put in to have the Monday off and return then.
Shits and giggles. That's why we do this. Plus the riding and the BBQ- heck, if Jim's didn't exist, we'd be OK with grub back at Bill's TWoS. Or just peanut butter and crackers from the place up the street. We could manage a hot dog dinner or a gourmet meal around a fire pit, no?
Vern and I spoke this evening at length, he had a large time, even a blast. Although I wasn't there, by proxy I enjoyed it all the same.
Hope, plan to see all you aisshats when the spring peepers start up.
