its beautiful down here!

I'm down in southwest Kentucky / northwest Tennesse for work this week. 70 degrees and sunny today. The roads down here are amazing. I wish I had a bike with me.

That is all

Get used to it if you travel for work. The same thing happens to me all of the time.

Indeed, been to Macon a few times and then Hazard and Pikeville, KY. Both beautiful places with great rolling hill roads.

but do you really want it to be nice and only dreaming of how much you would love to have the bike knowing that it is still sitting at home in the garage in pieces?

Been down in that area 3 times for work. Had to rent an SUV to get to mine sites, but boy do I wish I had a car. Even an economy car would have been fun on those roads. And the scenery, just fantastic.

Shitty my ass! It's mid-30s here and totally clear and sunny. I can't think of a better way to see this state. I can see fu*cking McKinley from my room, and there aren't droves of summer tourists ruining everything.

Arizona is full of dirty whores. Don't pass along mopar's STDs while you're there, drama.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, I'm also getting sent to HAWAII this year.
