While there, can you take a stroll down Pappy's Lane or Cross of Honor Way and post a pic of the Jug Handle bridge progress please?!

I'll be there in a week and a half and will take and publish pics from Pappy lane. Good memories from that place.

What are you doing on the sound on a steady NE?!!!???!!! Get over to the ocean and do a downwinder! I hope to be there April 21 for two weeks. A little warmer and one year we got a five-day NEaster with 30 knots and huge waves, was the best ever downwinders, albeit scary at times.
