Itís not all that short on notice. Been bubbling in the background on many fronts for years.

I've been wanting out of the flatland for several years - but economics dictated otherwise. I started the "conversation" on the left coast casually a few months ago but the process didn't come to a head and an acceptable offer made until this past Monday. Wifey and I worked the numbers over and decided that we must live without regret - GO FOR IT!

I thank you all for the well wishes. It will be hectic for a while and I hope exciting too. Once I get all the sweet routes scouted, I'll send out an invite for a weekend ride so you all can join in.
 ;D
