Pic for the Florida Jeepers

I figured it was finally time to bust this out.


I've had the luck or so I thought to be out of the country for the past 5 huricane seasons. Looks like I'll be here for all the hurricane parties now

I went to the liquor store today. I have my emergency kit ready to go. Freaking category 1 hurricane. What a pussy storm.

I promise you this: if the hurricane comes through here in the day, I am going swimming when it's full on ripping. I'll shoot some video.

Ah well it finally hit the dreaded CAT 1!I pity the poor media weather staff. Those suckers are out there just trying to hype it up for more excitement. I saw the news earlier today and I a guy in Key West had to use about 5 minutes of time to explain how the wind (roughly 25mph) was gusting upwards of 35-40mph. HAHA.

On a side note, walmart in Ocala had 6 gallon jerry cans for around $8 when I was at HardRock.

Oh and you can fit a 6 pack of bee....er cola in a camelback

New picture. Looks like it stalled over the Daytona area.

Was awesome at my house last night. Almost like a fall preview. Sat in the hot tub on the back porch, wind was whipping, temps were mild. I feel for the SOBs on the east coast drowning, but Fay really made it nice at my house last night.

edit: I'm going to the bucs game saturday night. Hope things dont go south.

I just ran outside and got a 10-15mph steady wind. I think the trees back here help out a bit though. Here's a shot out my window.

So I got bored, bought a CB, installed it in the monsoon, went to go wheeling and then...I went to put the 3 Legged Zebra in 4H and nothing. The damn transfer case linkage came off. I ended up crawling under and putting it back on. Man is that a crappy design. Nothing holding it on other than a little friction type connector.

Anyway, we hit a few little trails and found a big(by Fl statndards) sand hill. Got a couple pics.



You can see the trees leaning from the wind.


And a tandem sit down. HAHA Down to the frame for both of them.


I got some great film from in town I'll post up in the next day or two. This storm decided to park right over my home today.
