Arriving to what should have been the fun culmination to a cold, but enjoyable camping weekend, bad luck managed to find me again. While driving at at very low rate of speed in the gravel parking lot of the horse park in Conyers a rock appeared from nowhere, struck the M6’s windshield, and cracked it. There was not another car moving in the parking lot, and I was a good distance from the road, so I am still dumbstruck how this could have happened to me. The crack is a good ten inches long, so the windshield is not repairable and will have to be replaced.

Oh. Fucking. Joy. 🤬

    Well, $hit.

    The funeral Saturday was a very nice send off with a church full of folks. I was a puddle. Norman (president of the Games) piped and did a wonderful job. Many old friends I only see now on FB.

    Dinner with friends and spent the night in Hostchton before heading to the CX at Road Atlanta. We never see the track, but use some woods and a piece of parking g lot. 200 riders, so a nice easy day for me.

    Off to pick up Daisy this morning.

    Dude, that car is cursed! You need to cut and run 🙂

    Good seeing you yesterday, fun times until the Sheriff showed up.

    • You may be right, Bob. To make matters more frustrating, when I bought the M6 I intended to keep it for five years; that five-year period ends next month. So am I now putting a brand-new windshield on for the next owner? ☹️

    Any one remember this song from Hee-Haw? ;-);-);-)

    Gloom, despair, and agony on me
    Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
    If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all

    Your insurance will replace the windshield.

    • My insurance may pay for the windshield, though I am not sure I want to give them a reason to raise my already-overpriced auto insurance. I’ll try getting a couple of quotes first.

      Bummer about Allan’s bike.

      Also, I looked at Stan’s Strava and it appeared the angry landowner who blocked our path saved me at least a mile of hashing…

    Allan’s rear hub that blew up will probably cost more than the windshield – if it isn’t covered by any warranty (over a year old, so who knows if they will be nice) he will probably buy Chris King hubs – and I know those are more than a windshield.

    Kat & I did our own version of the Wheelhopper – she isn’t much into trail riding.
    It was a beautiful day -so that made it all ok.

    We went down to Lake Sinclair (just south of Eatonton) to Pantywaste & Buttsucker’s place. Its an old railcar that they have as a little “cabin”. They also have a separate “family” room next to it with a nice deck.

    2 lots over is Condo’s family’s lot – totally overgrown and the trailer needs to be bulldozed – but the lot is in the most perfect place. I’m sure his sister Andrea would sell it – we are debating if we have the money. Or- if we could have multiple owners. The seawall needs to be fixed/redone – and that will take some serious, serious bucks. They are on a point, so there is lots of shoreline.
    Liz & I went inside the trailer – fond some old hash pictures & a bunch of hash mugs.
