    Spring

    Spring tripped north a little early this year. What a feeling to be able to negotiate a mud filled driveway in 50?? sunshine in March. I have never been able to ride in this month, here. It is a gift that likely will not last, but the feeling of being able to hit the redline on Rte 2, after a four month layoff, gives a thrill that riders south of our latitudes do not know.

    Ask why I don't locate to a place more amenable to year rounding and I'll tell you that one of the reasons I live here is because a lot of other people don't.

    65 degrees here in Virginia at 10:15am, and I am getting ready to ride an hour west to Highland County, which has a population density of six people per square mile - about the lowest density of any county east of the Mississippi.

    The West. . .

    Might want to check it out. Eighty with full sun in the high desert of NM today, very, very few people.

    The Frozen Tundra has its' appeal, no doubt. Give me a minute and I'll think of something. . .

    Well, Walking Eagle, it's sort of like hitting your head repeatedly: it feels really good when you stop.

    I do have children and a grandchild in MT and riding to see them and back is special. There are magnificent places in this country and I'm imagining that NM has more than it's share.
