New years day ride

As is my tradition I got my New Years day ride in for 2013. I have been doing this for 10 years, even when I lived in St Louis. Got in Putnam County, St Johns County, Volusia County, Flagler County, about 200 miles total.

I'm ready to leave:

A little further north and you could have joined me on my ride.
I rode around Duval and Clay counties.

I saw a RG that looked like yours. May have been on 100.

That wasn't me this time, but I do hit that one frequently.

Didn't feel up to a New Years day ride. Went to a concert on NYE and didn't get home until 4am. At any rate it was cold and damp and rain was on the horizon. I will get my first ride of the year in soon.

Well, if you had been in St. Louis this year, you might not have gone too far. It snowed on New Years Eve, and it was cold on New Years Day, so nothing melted until late afternoon. I tend not to want to ride on snow and ice.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.
