Nice ride today. Just me and my neighbor James. We headed down to Earl’s first, where I dropped off my small amount of plastic to recycle (see–those side cases come in handy 🙂 ), and then over to the tobacco store, which was closed.
Oh, well. I was looking to get a couple of cigars, as I smoked my last one last night, out on the deck before the storm. Nice one, too. The last one out of the bunch my brother Cristo had gotten me. It was a nice night for it, last night, as the wind came in, and the clouds roiled, and the lightning flashed. Cool, no insects, and a nice cigar (my first in a couple months). A Fuente Gran Reserva, if I remember correctly. Smelled great.
Anyway, we had heard about a HOG rally, and headed over to the Expo center, but, alas, that was closed down too. So then we went down 95S to the Thornburg exit, where there was a huge accident with a tractor trailer, and headed out by the Stonewall Jackson Shrine and intercepted Rt 2 North. Right before 2 North, we stopped at a filling station and got some water; James got some petrol:
Then we headed back up to Fred Vegas, and on home. Nice ride. The only thing better would have been to jump into the ocean afterward. One of these days… 😀
