    This just means it is time to start planning for next years trip to Utah.

    Thanks to Utah Pete, he has been helping me with some pointers on great places to ride when we are there. With snow it is now time to start getting it entered into Harley Davidson Ride Planner, get it ready for fine tuning, and uploading to the Garmin a week before we go.

    Trip planning helps chase those snow blues away while we wait for spring.

    Default Here too

    Woke up to a 1" blanket of white and cold temps ahead for a week ... ah the joy of midwest winter. They were spraying the roads down with stuff... so time for the Spyder to hibernate safely and not rustify!

    No snow in Central IN yet; but it's cold, wet and damp. Hard freeze is in the forecast for the weekend. Wind chill's in the teens for the upcoming week. Got my RTL's annual service done, and put away for the winter the end of October.

    About six inches on the ground here. Was supposed to snow yesterday, but it passed us by. It is in the forecast again today.

    We are going to enjoy it...maybe. This could be our last winter in Alaska.

    How about prayer for the people of Paradise,Ca ( near Chico, north of Sacramento ) The town was evacuated and well burnt in a wild fire just 2 days ago. We really needed all that snow. At the last Nor Cal Spyder rally we met real nice folks from this now destroyed town of many thousands.

    Almost 2 inches of the white stuff here in Hartland.
    That plus the "mud bog" Livingston County calls a road out front signal's the end of my riding season.
    Last week I had the "pleasure" of ferrying my daughters Kawasaki 650 back to my heated shop for the winter,
    38 degrees and 0 wind protection! That was a treat.

    We got a dusting (1/2" to and inch) in Chicagoland, keep it up there. Unfortunately I was in Aruba and missed it. I'm sure there will be more. Hope to get a few more rides in yet. It has been chilly lately even for this time of the year. We wanted to take a Spyder tour in Aruba but for some reason they weren't running so we took a Trikes of Aruba tour. It was great. Everyday the weather is hi 84 low 78 with 10 min of rain. Love it.

    Ya, you go girl!! Love riding the bike but love my sleds just as much!! Needed to use the trailer to move some stuff for my daughter, had to take the sleds out, well lets just say I had to go out back of the house and scare some worms before I got mine in the garage!!

    Not really looking forward to the snow this year. Usually just means for every 1" of snow = 3" of salt and nice coating of brine).

    The highest mountain in the North East is Mount Washington, New Hampshire. Up there they have large chains to hold done the buildings because of the very strong winds.
