60+ degrees? On December 2nd? In IOWA???

Looks like I picked the right "winter" to buy my RT. Wow, took a good long ride today and didn't have to break out my arctic gear! Oh, and who did I see on highway 6, just west of Tiffin? Two RTs headin' west; one red and one black?

"Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue..."

We had 66 this afternoon in central Ohio. Unbelievable for this time of year. If this is global warming, I'll take it.
