Yes, Big Bat is certainly behind it all.

Is no one going to set up our contest teams? Am I going to have to do it?

rjones28 10-04-21 07:02 PM

I had to wait at a railroad crossing during Sunday's ride.

This made a formidably large, and hard lump, which hurt A LOT when I got smacked in the head with it for violating what she saw as 'The Rules' at the dining table.

I have since forgiven her.

This is what I was referring to. I wanted to see who would know it. I figured trainsnorter.

So I was passing over I-75 (far right) when up ahead, coming around the curve, were two CSX locomotives. They went overhead just as I arrived. Talk about timing. :bday:

Itís not actually the HOA. The deed restrictions for the neighborhood prohibit sheds. Iím good with that being we have wrought iron fences throughout. I donít want to look at someoneís Home Depot shed falling apart.

Better than watching the dentist from Seinfeld break bad. Gotta give me credit that I knew that.

Fine. I did it myself.

Took the group list, divided it at the Mississippi. The teams are equal, number-wise.

If you aren't in the group, but want in, and are on Strava or have another way to verify miles, contact the officials.

The challenge started today!
