WC reminded me to check with the Koffee Kup about cash only - that is true, they only accept cash and personal checks, however, I imagine that out-of-town checks might not work either. They have an ATM machine on site.

So, plan ahead! :mrgreen:

You know, I almost asked, but thought it would've been mentioned already... thanks for the heads up Chuck!

Sorry, I'm out for this one. :(
WHAT?!?!?! I'm coming from Seattle and you are out for this one? Well, I guess you don't want to see the pictures I'm bringing of the girls...:doh:

C'mon, Squeaky...it won't be the same without Sock Monkey, I mean, you there.

Soozy has it but look at post #1 and the bold "How" - it has links to several threads started from different locations.

I don't even have Spank right now - I think he's still with Rainmaker (?)

We have the kids and Jamey will probably be working - I just can't see them behaving for that long a drive without first being bound, gagged, and thrown in the trunk of the car. And then I wouldn't be able to go above the speed limit for fear of being pulled over and my "luggage" being discovered. Then I'd be hauled off to jail, pay a huge fine, have the kids taken away, and...

Ah, what the heck - I'll talk to Jamey and see what he says about caging it with them. :zen:

I am in, shown as probable so changing me is not a big deal as I count towards the 152. (Isn't that a Cessna?)

Put me in as probable.

I am collecting all the winter clothes I can get and trying to fit them under the riding jacket. I going to look like the Michelin man on a bike. I'll be trying to put the hand guards from the DR to the Strom

Swung by Lone Star BMW to pick up door prizes and ended up buying a heated vest for me. I was going to tough it out with just heated grips and lots of layers. I need to double check my fuse panel to make sure I can handle the load the way I wired it. I may have to go direct to the battery for the short term, but I should be warmer.

No spoilers on the door prizes, but thank Robert Krull next time you swing by the store.

Which in turn has reminded me, if I recall correctly, something about the new gas station across the street from the Koffee Kup putting a hold on a larger than normal amount and not releasing it for a longer than normal amount of time if the purchase was made on a credit/debit card. Sound familiar?

I think we ironed that out in another thread. It is not unusual and I think it was near the time that gas was $400/gallon. Those "holds" go away once the actual purchase goes through. It can be very confusing for a time, though. I believe the one in question was resolved, although it was slower than it should have been...

Looks like I will have to bow out Chuck, just dont think the
current tire has enough left in it and when I stopped by the
local cycle gear today they wanted almost as much for one
rear tire as I paid when I ordered a set tonight from SW moto
tires

You guys have fun

Well I've been waiting to see how I was feeling before I uncommited. I've got my first full blown case of Cedar Fever and it won't let go. This stuff is just nasty.

Take me off the definate list but if I feel a whole lot better by tomorrow night I'm a maybe. Perhaps by cage if necessary.

We go through a lot of Zyrtec this time of year. I'm even starting to need it a couple of times a week.

This is my first time and I'm not looking forward to more. We will invest heavily in Zyrtec for the future. I had to finally go to the doctor, got all kinds of meds including a cough syrup that put me down for 13 hours. It's almost as bad as Bronchitis and it's going on two weeks now.

Move me to definite and lets go +1. But I'll be in the cage.

The boy wanted see what it's about and 2up with him on the Nighthawk would kill my suspension....not gonna happen. :nono:

Besides, I nearly froze on that Crockett ride and this one is supposed to be 10 degrees colder. I'll have to admit a "wimp out" on that score. :giveup:

:tab Well, since we are heading to Austin tomorrow afternoon (Friday) and it is supposed to rain and get cold all day, I think I may wind up riding in the truck with Beth and the kids. I was REALLY looking forward to a good long ride. I even got my riding suit back from Cycleport with post accident repairs and some general "refreshing" completed. The cold is not really an issue, but the wet is, especially when combined with cold.

I had a heart attack last Sunday, spent 3 days in the hospital and am now recouping so I guess I'm going to have to bow out of this one. This was my 2nd one. Take me from definite to not going. I was looking forward to it.

Cancel me, I'm a wimp...:giveup: Even though my heated gear is supposed to arrive today (who knows what time?), I won't have time to rig it up.

I'm really really done with winter weather.

I'm still on the probably list. I will make the ride in the morning unless there is ice on the road. I can take the cold but the ice is a no go. My +1 has dropped out though so take him off.

I'm watching the radar right now and they are showing freezing rain falling in the HICO area.

And, I just went from definite to cancel.

We are having some water drainage issues due to this latest deluge. So, I get to work on that this afternoon and over the weekend. (joy)

Everyone stay warm!

I notified the editor of the Hico Review that there'd be a bunch of loonies (shaped like the Michelin man) at the Koffee Kup tomorrow beginning about 11.
