Got the siding off the shed and working on residing it.  I had planned on trying to do a ride but don't think it is going to happen this year.   :'( :'(

Sunday is looking like the better of the two.

Maybe Iíll just hit up the breakfast ride at the commuter lot in Guilford. 9AM?

I was there on a claim that suffered extensive damage.
There's much more to the story but that's for another weekend ride!
Oh.....did I say it was oppressively hot and brutally humid😳

Are you referring to the whole island or just a specific structure ...  :barry:

I was at a manufacturing plant with 20 buildings that I had to look at.
The surrounding area was pretty devastated with power blinking on and off through the course of the week that I was down there.
It's quite apparent that the situation is going to get very desperate for Puerto Rico if a widespread concerted effort isn't implemented.
Can never fully understand these types of situations unless one actually sees,or witnesses it.
I was in Biloxi, MS a week after Katrina and will never forget the devistation caused!

Did you ever do this ride? The weather wasn't the greatest.

Have you ever done the "Puppy to the beach" ride? The northern portion is best from about Spencer MA, north. If you haven't done it before portions can get pretty muddy, like knee deep mud holes, but it's fun. My father and I did it in the spring.

Always wanted to. Wish I had before I sold the TW. If it's been dry I'll try it on the GS. But I need wingmen.

I'd be up for it again but I'm not quite sure if it'll happen again this season. I did it on Shinko 705 tires and that was interesting in the mud, I've got an 804 on the front now. Well, I've actually got 2 sets of wheels now, one with knobbies and one without.
