    Funny - we just drove across Illinois today...and Indiana...and half of Ohio...and half of Iowa...but we're HOME!!! If I'd known you were there, I would've waved. Also, we thought we'd take the northern route home this time, across 80 instead of our normal route across 70 then 76 from Indy to the QC. We paid for the privilege of 2-lane traffic that was far slower than 70 usually runs. If I'm paying, I want 3 lanes, dammit!!!

    Guys, if it comes to the point where filling it or crowning it doesn't help...I heartily recommend an implant. It was a little pricey (and most was not covered by insurance) but they feel like regular teeth and beat the hell out of dentures or bridges.

    These DOT workers have gotten lazy. Was on hwy 9 yesterday hauling grain. Windmills going up left and right so there activity going on but nothing on the road. See a pickup the opposite way on my shoulder (wife enough to fit a full vehicle and then some). As I get closer I move over and see one of the mobile post stop signs leaning on his bumper facing the sky. Same time I light the brakes up I see the worker scrambling out of his pickup. See a cloud of smoke roll past me and realize I just cut 20k miles off these tires as I look in the mirrors. No idea why he was there but if you are stopping traffic at least put the sign so people can see it before they are on top of it.

    I was getting a couple of drinks at the bar by my house, and now they’re playing Phosphorescent. Means I’m staying out.

    Took the chapter down to the QC NWS office for a tour tonight and to witness the weather balloon launch which I ended up getting to do. That was freaking amazing!

    Deck party was a relative success. Good company and no fist fights over politics. No mosquitoes. FTW. ;)

    Broke up just before the rain came. My age peers do not stay out as late as I do. :rolleyes:

    Looking around a clean house and thinking maybe I should make some sort of effort to maintain this. Looks nice.

    Just don't open the door to the computer room or the guest bedroom where I quickly stashed stuff out of the way. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I think it got stronger as it got to you guys. Worst of it went north and south of us.

    This brisket wasn’t my best. Had a tighter time limit. Another 2 hours to do my work and it would have been golden.

    Anyone have a hot-tub? Kind of want to get one from a place like wayfair, but I don't really know much cleaning, maintaining them, ect. Is it pretty easy?

    So my in-laws gave us a free cruise they got through their time share. Since flying is insanely expensive we are actually thinking about driving to/from New Orleans. Car Gas would be roughly $200 round trip compared to $900-$1k to fly. 14ish hour drive...

    The FD pork chop dinner was awesome. It was a nice grilled boneless chop, baked beans, potato salad, and all the sweet corn you wanted. Lemonade and water were your choice of drinks.

    Awesome bike ride in today, got in a few miles of single track then the slow roll in M.C. all on the fat bike.
