Post Anyone Up for a Ride Sunday

I know it's Easter Sunday... That means there are a lot of empty roads out there! Anyone going for a ride today? I'll check in the morning and see if anyone wants to brave the PacNWet highways.

Gonna test the wet traction of your new tires, huh?

Awfully tempting, Ernie. But I gotta work tomorrow so that I can take next week off and head home. I've had the GT almost two weeks now, so I guess it's about time to put on another couple thousand miles.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Ernie,
I am a little to late reading your message, I hope you got out for a good ride. I was trying to be an adult this weekend and get my chores started. It was a pretty productive day. Amonst the many things I was able to accomplish was a 12K on the LT. The valves were right in spec and all the filters and fluids were changed. All the rest of the parts I ordered should be arriving within the next week or two. Now if I can only remember how to put her back together after being dismantled for 6 months!!

The truth be known we didn't get out today afterall. We ended up last night with a plumbing disaster and it kept on giving into today. I thought we would be able to get out later today but we decided to hang up the notion after we finally finished re-plumbing the small bathroom and cleaning the pipes. A new house would be right up my alley about now!

Other than that we had a great day. Let's plan an overnight trip to Port Alice, Vancouver, BC.

Cool

Plumbing sucks, except you can't get along without it! I'd be up for a trip to Port Alice. I missed it on my Vancouver Island triip last summer.
