Please remove the 'woo' please....I mean, you may as well ad in 'smooches' too. Will you be posting any quality snaps?
As long as we're being persnickety, remove a please. I hate stumbling over redundant wording.

Fraser, this does not apply to pictures. The more the better.

Frasier,

Let me know if you want me to put you in touch with our friends there. If you hook up with them following VCA they can take you to some pretty cool riding spots- Upper La Parva etc.
Plus they are super friendly and great tour guides!

80 degree temps while hanging in Valpo for a week...

I hate myself.

Dave, Heik, and Fras - have a blast. If you get the chance - post up some pics of the race (in particular Fairclough if you get the chance - would like to see how the new guy is getting on with his new ride :) ) AND the pub/bar/restaurant scene...

Meanwhile back in northeast PA.... arrrrrrrrrrrgghh.

Rip it up fellas!

Huge snowstorm in Montreal this morning. Hope dave makes the airport ok!
not happy about this at all, hahahah

sitting at nancy's computer right now, wondering if they will ever plow your street before my taxi gets here :disgust1:

snow has let up, and is not supposed to accumulate more than the 4-6" that has fallen already...looks flights are going in and out so i should be ok.... i hope

our once in a lifetime flight to Hawaii last January was routed thru Chicago. I didn't think of it until a few days beforehand and was just like "just let us get through Chicago with 2 little kids...Puhhhleeease." :D The -15 degree windchill stepping off the regional plane (or whatever they call them) onto the tarmac was nasty!

Good luck with my street. We call for plows and crap and they show up 2 hours later. They are pretty useless that way. I bet the other street has been done 20 times since 6am.

Hot and sunny here, no snow in sight, ha. My arm is bright pink from the 60 min drive. Bring sunscreen.

hhahaha... and you laughed at me for hitting the electric beach before i came down... told ya so
It's pretty funny, ya. i didn't realize it until i put my arm under my pillow. OUCH. Hope your flight is better than the one micayla and i were on. Felt like we were put in a blender for 10 hours.

Oh, you remembered the helmet cam, right? got some pretty cool ideas for it after seeing parts of the course.
