Guess who is going to Bike Week

This is Bike Week in Daytona Beach, Florida. Thousands of bikers will be there and having all kinds of fun and frolics. Guess who’s heading up there today. Yep, Mr. Pop and yours truly.

It just so happens that Mr. Pop needs to attend a meeting up there tonight and another in the morning. When the meetings were scheduled, no one noticed the date coincided with Bike Week. And no, Mr. Pop nor I have ever ridden a motorcycle.

I’m guessing the traffic will be a nightmare. We know the rates at hotels and B&B’s are double their usual rate. Finding one with a vacancy is difficult. We just happened to get lucky and landed a reservation at a little inn where we have stayed before. Restaurants will be jammed as will just about everything else during Bike Week.

This could be interesting. And just for the record, I have no intention of publicly exposing any parts of my female anatomy no matter what anyone promises me in return.

See ya back here Thursday.

Seriously, have a good trip!

Stay away from tequila and you'll be better equipped to keep your shirt on!

Have fun.

And for the record from this side... while I do not have a clue of what you look like, the whole "Biker Chick" persona (not that there's anything wrong with it!) does not figure into my idea of you.

But hey - whatever. Have a good trip.

Bring earplugs.

Not even if we could promise impeachment and imprisonment of Bush and Cheney and Rummy and other assorted minions of hell?

We once went to Myrtle Beach on a whim and ended up there on Black Bike Week. No idea why they had their own, other than the obvious conclusion that black bikers and white bikers wouldn't get along. It made us all kinda sad.

Everything goes up; prices, people, traffic, and the number of organs available for donation.
