    You know it is getting close to rally time when ___!

    Please fill in the blank. I am starting this because I went home at lunch to hand wash and water-proof my 'stich. Once a year whether it needs it or not... Not that I am predicting rain. It must be rally time!

    ...When I suddenly realise just how little time I have to get the important preparations done.
    Bikeless for now...but not for much longer!

    .... when I call my neighbor's son - who is now in college - to come over to take care of the dog for a week.

    You know when it's getting close to rally time when....everything I'm bringing is laid out in the garage, my bike is tuned and ready to go, and I am curtailing my daily commute on the GS so I can start packing! Route planning a go-go! Since my GPS is paper thin and requires no electricity (a map) I take an extrordinary amount of time planning to and from this great event!

    Unhappy

    The K-bike batttery died, stranding me at work and I had to try 3 different auto parts stores before I found a replacement. Not enough change out of $100 to buy a burger for lunch.
    Bring on the bawdy strumpets,
    Cheers,
