There and Back Again
Arrived home 15 minutes ago. Had a decent trip home barring one false start (note: if you are trying to determine whether or not you are forgetting something, instead of checking in your brain, look around you, especially if you are wearing a helmet and looking around you is something you must purposefully do), and one minor scare when I misjudged a curve on Elk Lake Rd, partly because I was scared away from the inside of the curve by oncoming traffic, and I had to straighten up and go off onto the shoulder for 30 feet or so. There was a little bit of rain, but very sparse. A couple slowdowns for construction. After the first one I went on to Grayling for a hot dog and a slice of pie at Goodale's Bakery, after which I felt much more forgiving. I routed around the northernmost lane merge slowdown on 75/23 (second note: Bennett lake Rd, north of White lake road is a nice drive).

And now I am home. Safely there, safely back again. Feels like a successful trip. Oh, and I had a good time, too. :)

How was everyone else's weekend? (and Monday)

I had a good weekend, thanks for asking. Monday was dull -- air travel.

I had a festive weekend, Ribfest on Friday with beef ribs and April Wine and Sombra Days on Sunday with kabobs, in between was a viewing of "Highway 61" with friends.

Are you still busy until 8:30 PM this Thursday?

yes, I'm busy 6:15 to 8:15 with my dance class every thursday until the second week of August. Did you want to crash here Thursday? Sarah's going to be in town, she has suddenly decided, so the guest room's full, but there's always the basement.

Thanks, but Steve, Sharon and I will be heading back to Ferndale for the evening.

Which Sarah?

If you head Traverse City-way again, perhaps I-94 -> US-127 would be a good routing? I think my family used that road to bypass a great deal of I-75 years ago and I have a vague recollection of it being laid back and a nice drive. I-75 congestion always seems to drop off dramatically past Saginaw.

And I don't think I've ever been to Traverse City.

Now I want to take a road trip. I blame you. ;)

I had a great weekend. Played in my first official DCI tournament in years.

I'm ultra busy this week, but hopefully yellowmouser and I can see you soon. (He'll be in Ann Arbor for only a few more weeks.)
