Good news and I am real happy for you. Yep, just put this stuff in the back of your mind and enjoy the summer.

But, you can keep the rain for a while if you don't mind. Leaving tomorrow in the RV to take my wife and her friend to the beach for 4 days.

If it's too wet to ride, you can always go fishing.
