Exclamation Three days of preparations before 'Lift Off'!

Well...I guess the countdown is officially ON. Oh boy! Not sure if this elevated heart rate is excitement . . . or nervousness. Probably a little of both. I better get my headset installed in my new Nolan. Yea...that's it. Keep my mind busy so I can't think of the other million things I have to do before lift-off, Saturday at O'dark thirty. Lordy me! So THIS is what dreams are made of!


For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, let's just say that I'm going for "a little ride" on Saturday. Yea! That's it! For the rest, I'll see ya when I get there! :p

Remember, I'm buying dinner when you get to Salt Lake. Weather today in Idaho is 36 degrees and snowing/raining.
Drive careful Joe.
Enjoy your journey.

Well normally I'd be very jealous of this but seeing as:

1) I don't have a GT yet.

2) It is just barely above freezing and we have a "snow warning" (6" to 8"+ expected ), I'm not all that jealous.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Ken, of course he can, the BIG guy is his co-pilot.

To the "other" Meese, travel safe, have a GREAT trip and may you avoid any performance awards.

If your travels have in NorCal on any Friday-Sunday I'll buy you a beer! Better yet, if you like sushi we can hit one of the best in the country.

Take care,
Bill

Unfortunately, that part of my ride has been shortened. I think I'm only going to get just north of the Bay area a bit, then I'll have to head EAST. And that's going to be at the beginning of the second week of May, so by the weekend I'll be far far away from that sushi. Darn it!

Oh well...I can't get too too upset. It's gonna be one heck of a ride, for a po' boy.

Don't regret to harshly. There's a spot up by Canyon Lake called The Boiling Pot. I'll get you a mess of mudbugs and shrimp you won't forget.
