Wilma Tour!!

Got a good bike, Bob Trailer, Chrome Metropolis. If it comes this way I'm gonna evac by bike.



Imagine that tailwind.





Seriously, how fun would that be? Well not fun, exactly, but... round up whomever else could carry some freight. Friends just on road/other bikes would get a couple pounds rationed in the Bob. Could work pretty well if we get any Texas-sized traffic jams outta this.


Adventures.

Got to admire your spirit. You're right it would get you past the traffic jams, just remember to be well supplied since getting stuff on the road could be tough as we've seen in TX and LA evacuations.

My son and his family are in Cape Coral. Right now that's about ground zero. We'll watch for another day to see what this thing does and plan from there.
