Hit the road at 8:00 sharp. It's already sticky, even in the mountains, but not too bad when moving.

First stop of the day, at the Franklin McDonalds. It's the usual rural McDonalds confusion over ordering an espresso:

"I'd like an espresso, 2 shots."
[To someone else behind the counter] "Where's the espresso button?"
[Other counter worker rolls eyes, shows where the button is.]
"You don't want anything with it?"
"No, just 2 shots of espresso in a cup."
"Small, Medium, or Large?"
[Bang head against counter]
"That'll be $1.60."

That's $1.25 more than my record low price at a McDonalds, which was $0.35 along I-85 in northern North Carolina. When I pointed out that I didn't think the price was right, the little old lady behind the counter said, "Oh, I couldn't possibly charge you more for that little bitty bit of coffee."


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

Barbie had to work today at 5AM. We are all packed and ready. Plan on hitting the road this afternoon and spend the night with my son, near Mt. Airy, NC. We will see everyone Wednesday afternoon.

The Coastal Carolina BMW Club meeting only had 10 people last night because so many of you are already there.

Bill Murray is likely already on the road this morning.

Don't let Paul Winter drink all the good beer.


Old BMWs can be repaired.

A couple of the guys here have already discovered buying growlers of the good stuff from one of the places down by Asheville. A couple who needed new tires got them from a J-brand dealer there yesterday because he new BMW dealership is closed on Mon nd they came back with stuff from French Broad.
There will still be some beer left when you get here.
Am expecting Bill sometime around noon today and will see you and Barbie on Wed

This morning's market price at the nearest McD: $1.07. Wi-Fi at the Switzerland Inn is flaky, so I had to head to the nearest McDonald's for an espresso and internet fix. Also, Tracfones don't work along the BRP (although just a few miles off, I'm getting 5 bars, so at least I know the phone still works).

I was hoping to meet you, but word is that your wrist is still too painful for travel. Healing well is better than healing fast (both are best of all). The usual suspects say hello, Paper Butt.

A yellow jacket stung me on the jaw as I was taking off my helmet yesterday afternoon. Because of my beard, it didn't get in a good dig, but i'm hyper-sensitive to insect venoms, and my jaw is slightly swollen right where the helmet strap crosses it, so I think I'll just lay back today.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

Looks like I'm going to have to bail. I just got an email from the wife of my best friend from high school days. He died Sunday; funeral Friday. I'll stick around through today for the free beer, then hit the road for Delaware tomorrow morning.
