To all RSSer's,

It has been the best season in a long time (and for some of you it still is),
but I went out on my last ride yesterday.  Conditions on the trails and lakes
are still good but where trail meets road?....... Yikes!  I was crying
everytime I had to make a trip in and out our cottage road while packing up to
go home.  My poor little Phazer is all covered in mud and begging for a bath!
When I go up on the long weekend in May, I'll put her away properly.  All in
all I got in 2400 kms this year (not even close to some of you, right Rob?) but
still pretty good for a weekend warrior that puts in 200 to 400 kms per
weekend.  I remember getting out 7 weekends in total last year for 1500 kms.
So, I'm pretty happy to have almost doubled last years riding.  Looking forward
to next year already!

See you on the NG!

Yep, it was a great winter, but it's time to play with the water toys.

ANY miles are good miles!!  And I know what you're talking about with the
muddy roads.  Here in Vermont there are still FEET of snow on the ground,
and the trails are still great.  But you can't go anywhere without hitting
a muddy road.  Now I've never been too particular about such things, but
that gets real old real fast.  Kinda spoils it when we have a late season
like this one.

It's gonna be 75 in Atlanta by Thurs. I have to travel in the south March - May
for my job. It sucks because I know there is snow left, but it is nice to relax
at the beach on the weekends when most people are starting to get sick of the
cold. I know there is plenty of snow left in NY, but the grooming has been
dropping off. We can usually start skiing in MD by mid-May and can take the
jetskis to the beach by June 1st.

Well, I'm glad someone had a great season.  Here in the west 'Idaho' we've had very
little snow, big drought this year.  Only (5-6 feet) 56% of normal snow fall around
here.  Last year I was sledding into May with 82% snow fall, this year I summerized
the sleds last Saturday.  I'm done too.  700 miles, 3 or 4 really good powder
rides, of course a good days ride here is 50 miles / tank of gas.  In June the
headlines here will read "West burns out of control". Last year was a bad fire
year, but this year may out do the last.  I guess if we can't harvest the trees,
mother nature will thin em out her way...........   There's always next year to
look forward too, I hope.

Wes,  

So  your plates expire, now? Just curious, since in the states, well
this one (WA)
expires this coming Sept. Kinda an extreme, but at least would let me
finish out the
spring.
