If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

If its a penny for your thoughts and you are putting in your two cents, hey someone's making a penny.

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

that looks like a nice trip that i'd like to be a part of. Lets see if i can get my bike sold and a replacement in and working ot my liking. I have a summer class with the final landing on thursday from 6pm to 8pm, so i guess I'd have to meet you somewhere... but I'd like to tag along. if anyone else would like to make a late start, i'd love to join you guys, and i have a friend in houghton we could all come visit.

I was planning to go, but you of course pick the same time as the Armada Fair, and that just won't work. Oh well, I've seen all those sites before many many times, and most of them on a bike trip atleast once.

Make sure to stop at copper peak on the black river trail, the big indian in Ironwood, lake of the clouds in the porkies, and agate falls which is accessible by a nice roadside park on m-28 between trout creek and bruce crossing.

Look who's back!
What? A cloud came over the beach so you had to head back here?

Yes, I cannot wait for the trip.
Now, start praying for great weather!
