I did a mail run and will be doing a restaurent run a little later.  We Alaskans are having mixed results with Covid scare.  Some places are open some let you pickup and go, others will actually deliver.  The big tour companies however are shutting down and our cruise we had planned and booked last August for this September has been cancelled.  Any way there always seems to be a space time warp every time I get the mail. It is 1.8 miles from my house to post office, yet round trip can anywhere from 10 to 40 miles by the odometer.

    Was planning on taking a ride up to Cape Canaveral yesterday to watch the launch, but the weather looked like it was gonna be a scrub, so a buddy and I took a more local ride early in the day.  The only thing worse than getting rained on while riding up to the Cape to watch a launch is getting there wet and having it get scrubbed.  Saturday's weather looks worse than yesterday's, so I will be staying close to home Saturday, unless things change.

    Anyway, got in a bit over a hundred miles and had a great smoothie up in Vero Beach.

    I had heard they were wanting people to avoid coming to watch the launch.

      That was the original position, but I think things changed once people started realizing their freedom was being comprimised.  Our Governor won't have that crap happening here.

       I rode today but had a collision.  That dad blame Alaskan mosquito almost brought me to a total stop and blocked out most of my wind shield.

      I agree.  You will definitely see, and learn, more watching it on TV.  I figure if I can go for the ride on this one, I can watch the Discovery Channel's coverage 'on demand', but if the weather is iffy, I'm stayin' home to watch.  Normal, everyday, run-of-the-mill launches don't get this coverage.

      Don't remember what year it was but I was on 95 headed to the Keys somewhere south of Daytona and they launched the shuttle that's the closest I've been to see it - we can see the launches from Jacksonville if it's clear - I was working in Crescent City and saw the Challenger when it blew up.

      FINALLLLLY after about 1yr after my knee surgery. I FINALLLLLLY rode my baby today. I started at 4pm and stopped about 8pm. Beautiful day it was about 80F after a light rain. Put on about 150miles. Knee feels great with a Velcro brace on both knees. Feels good to hop up my baby again.

      I'm soooo jealous!  I did that Cali sector years ago, but did it in a rental car.  Loved it!!     :thumbs:


      There's no substitute for cubic inches and a good engine management system!   Hmmm, well maybe a blower, NOS or turbo....
