    I'm so ready. Been like a roller coaster lately, weather wise. 70* one day snow the next. Still need to hit the slopes at least once this year though.

    What does spring get everybody else into hobby wise? Hiking, camping, biking, gardening, fishing?

    I've got about 5 friends wanting to go on a motorcycle trip down to South TX 1st of May. This will be PT '08. (Puss tour '08) a short 4 or 5 day ride. The big one is going to be Aug. for 2+ weeks and about 5200 miles planned so far. :D

    I'm ready for spring. I've already started biking again though. As long as it's around or above freezing in the morning and the wind isn't supposed to be too bad. Already done 118 miles since the first of the year. With daylight savings this sunday and warmer weather, I'll start riding even more.

    I'll also start shooting more.

    Here it is only way too hot (summer) and not so hot (fall, winter, spring). Seasons have absolutely no meaning out here.

    Camping out of the truck or backpacking? I'm originally from the Ozarks in MO. Float trips on the Curent river into AR camping on the sand bars and lots of cold beverage. Trees, water, humidity are a rarity here in N. TX but the weather will keep you guessing for sure and you better like the wind. :rolleyes:

    Hey Concrete, I hear ya! !! I don't know how you folks in Rochester stand the winters! !! Reminds me of last year (07) this time I was in your town for Kidney surgery in the middle of a snow storm. I was depressed enough without that! !! Spring is right around the corner so hang in there! ! We are just getting rain here in Binghamton:)

    Thanks Don ! I have to admit it gets real pretty when a snow like this occurs, we hang around the fireplace a lot and read or if it's not to bad I'll take the camera out, but that fun wears off quick. You're right though, it's right around the corner :bananadance:

    Although I'm ready for spring, I'm getting dissappointed by this lame-ass "winter storm". I like storms whether it's thunder and lightning on a hot summer night, or 18" of snow with high winds and drifting. As far as storms go, this one sucks.
