First event...one week away! Now that the power is f-i-n-a-l-l-y back on after Wednesday's NorEaster, time to plug the Battery Tenders back in and get going.

Hopefully, Deep River will be defrosted by next Sunday...

     Battery is in along with wiring for new heated gear :grin: :grin:. Started and went ten miles or so yesterday! If we could get a good rain to wash off the salt and it would stop snowing every couple of days life would be great. By the way, WATCH OUT FOR BRANCHES HANGING OR LEANING IN THE ROAD. Was up by you today Steve on Boardman and almost hit one with my truck. Hit one last week with my trailer. Would really suck to hit one while on a bike. See ya next week.

I may try to go to the Keene thing, but I'm not sure yet.  Family obligations and/or getting asked to work at the shop when others go to events are the primary reasons.  But then, I'm a different Matt.

(Hamlin's has two Matts, two Adams, a Jim, and an Andy)
