I've retired my leather jacket to fall, winter, and spring.
I'm wondering if you got the same one I do. How do you like it?

Why the doubt on returning to Weedsport? The camping $$ and cold shower?

There were a few other things that just put me off the race. the bottom line is that I feel it isn't worth spending as much as it cost to see the race. The expensive tickets (the price jumped something like 15 bucks since last year), the very expensive camping, the SECURITY clown with the miserable attitude who liked to give orders and the cold shower all contributed to the way I feel about going back.

If I'm going to get screwed, I'd at least like a kiss.
