First commute of the season

I got home last night around 11pm and promptly fell into bed with a fever of 101`! Oh well, at least I got the ride in...... Dang Viruses!

Rough night to start your commute. Could have made it in on a kayak.

How ironic I got sick after my ride home yesterday too, but I have been commuting for a few weeks now. Love these 80 degree days. But a cool front is to come through tomorrow drop the temps into the 40's and 50's and it is to rain the next few days so I think I will hold off until I am totally better. Next week the weather looks pretty good highs in the 70's. Anyways hope you get better too.

I have my old (15yr) Helly Hanson Packable Jacket (Don't think they make it anymore) and I just bought a pair of Cabella's Brand rain Pants. Nothing fancy, Just a rain shell. But at $20, I'm not going to ask for more.... I think All I need for next winter is some 'wicking' base layers..... Yeah, right!
