|** TS Isaac **|
As I've been preparing for the journey north of Florida, I have continuously watched Isaac for his next move. Not a very well organized storm as of yet, it will be interesting to see how he takes shape once over our warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Due to Isaac's size, I'm expecting rain here in the Tampa area very soon...already a little breezy.
The wife has been dropping hints over the course of the last two weeks regarding her concerns. I have played them down to some extent, all the while knowing that Isaac could very well ruin my plans. I have done everything I can to be prepared for the trip - ensuring the wife is comfortable. We've got new rain gear and we will be wearing our full faced helmets with bluetooth communications. Our accommodations along the way are extremely comfortable (probably too comfortable for this kind of trip). However, I must say, I am trying to make sure my wife's first long motorcycle trip that is purely about riding makes her come back for more.
Given that...ISAAC, MOVE FASTER NORTH.
