It was supposed to be sub-50 when I set out. I had bad intel - blame the meteorologists.

Excuse invalid once you walk out the door.

I have not stepped outside so far today.

In 2006 I created an entry for a high school I went to. I hadn't looked at the page in years. Today it looked like one of the students must have added sections to it (with high school-level writing). Sad.

As iconic as the BS and its sign are, it wasn't that. I don't know when it was established. It's been there for a long time! I've ridden by it hundreds of times during the last 15 years, probably.

Just mobile though, right? It looks killer, but I haven't heard about any desktop news.

It was like 60 when I left - that's not exactly balmy when you're not warmed up. If it were 60 in your house, you'd have four layers on - I had a bit of spandex and, yes, a pair of gloves.

36 miles , 20 plus mph head winds on the return leg. Which explain why I felt so good on the way out. Best I could do on the main part of the return leg was 13 mph. My guads are throbbing.

Turn in your Minnesotan card--we'll still accept you.

"We"? The Canadians? Haven't they built a wall to keep us out?

I guess the second A in AMA doesn't stand for Anything.

I got another though. What did you do with this eagle?

Correct. But I couldn't pass up the "bad intel" joke.

Nope. Never been to Winged Deer Park.

Just looked it up and we were warmer than it is today for eight straight days in January. :rolleyes:

Never been to Trollheim. Nothing compared to the unmoderated mayhem at the big sailing forum.

Trollheim, last I checked, was a cesspool of people being stupid for stupid's sake. Maybe it's better now. I don't go there.

Hey MoAlpha one of my college friends told me his daughter got drafted by NIH to switch from cancer research to COVID19 vaccine research. He said they are optimistic they will have something viable much sooner than the 18 month time-frame I had heard.

I hope that's true.
