    Yes, eating very well indeed. Traveling with the wife, so...Tonite, for example, order 2 beers, get the beers and 6 boiled shrimp, whole. Order 2 more beers, get the beers and 8 deep fried anchovies that tasted like the smelt we get in Wisconsin. Order 2 more beers and get chips with pimentos and onions with a speck of tuna. This Tapas stuff is great. Just paid for the beers. Off to Cordoba tomorrow and home on the 27th. See you all in Minnesota,

    Bring some beer back with you, Tom! See ya in MN.

    Good time at the GR3! A couple of us did some impromptu Airhead tech and got bikes tuned up and running better. Or at least the owners said the bikes were better. Hopefully everybody made it home safely and dry.

    For us flatlanders from ILL it is a treat to ride in SW Wisc. I could not get enough of the scenery and the fun roads.

    On the way up from Bloomington, the Mississippi river provides some fun roads. Here is a picture of Blackjack Road which is just south of Galena. It is is hilly enough that it has the Chestnut Mountain ski resort.

    Thanks to the Madison club for hosting the rally and letting us FIBs cross the Cedar Curtain.
