the county road that is about 3 miles from my place is under construction and is just a bone jarring mess. stones and mud flying and they spray it daily with calcium chloride . at the snails pace that they move around here it will be months before they get a blacktop on it. several of us up my way only have a 3 mile cruise before heading back.....that gets old pretty quick. last week i took the car out for fuel, never again, i just won't subject the poor shark to that abuse again. anybody coming this way, avoid lakehurst road like the plague. :swear: doug.
