No one's been here in a week, and it shows. Spent the last 3 days running around Mountain Rest. Had to share a coffee maker with 7 other bikers. I'm glad I'm home so I can just share half a pot with the wife. How is everyone?

I'm sitting here drinking a cup of Starbucks Rift Valley blend. Like most Starbucks coffee, it's a dark roast. I think it would taste better if it was a medium roast, but still; it's not bad.

There is a waterfall with easy access before Cashiers. The guys liked that, because we're old, and wearing jeans and boots.

Nice shot Fred, wish I was there!
Harry, good to hear the back is better as mine has been an issue for 45+ years.
And John, Starbucks is not high on my list.
Back from my foray out of the Country so carry on one and all!

I have a pot brewing. Store bought brownies are on the table. Been in the upper 90's for a while here. Heat index puts it in the 100's. Broke out the bike this morning because, even though a front is bringing the possibility of rain, it's cooler. I can ride in the rain. Hope ya'll are dry and happy.

Could use some coffee, left early this morning to get to my procedure at the V.A. Heart stress test, yippee. 4-6 hours and I'll be back on the road.
