    This past week was the coldest one of our winter. Friday morning the temperature was -40 with the wind blowing at 30 mph = that gives a wind chill below -50 F



    All that means is that it is to cold to even think about starting my TW



    However it also marks the end of our coldest part of winter and that temperatures will start edging up. So tomorrow I am going out to my shop and going to sit on my bike just to remember how much fun is coming up



    Only a couple of months to go

    I had to check out just where you are via Google Maps. Dude... you may have the most "remotely located" TW in the forum. Talk about isolated!

    I looked this up too. How do you get out there by boat?



    Do you have trouble getting food there in the winter?



    How warm is it when summer gets there?



    We are in the Southwest corner of Arizona. Supposed to be close to 80 the next couple of days here.



    I ride around town everyday on the TW, unless we are doing something else.

    Holy crumbled saltine crackers Batman, that's cold!
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Don't you ever just ask yourself why?
    I prefer the road less traveled...... Especially if it's dirt.

    We only get ships in the July through October period - after that everything comes in by plane - we get about 18 flights by jet per week from Ottawa Montreal and Edmonton.



    Our summers in July can get into the mid to high 70's in July

    Polar, I don't know how you do it. I'd have frozen to death already. Being in So Cal my whole life might have something to do with it.





















    I probably shouldn't tell you this but getting ready to go for a ride down the coast. 80 degrees and beautiful here today.
