I'm surprised nobody has brought up the new casino in Springfield. That'd be an obvious way to fill the time.

Forget the casino. I don't have money to just throw away.
Strippers, now there's return for your dollar and an investment in a single mother's future.

I have an '08 C50.
Everyone makes me ride at the back because of my Morton Violators.
Longest ride: 1241 miles in 20 hours 15 minutes


Interested in a replacement gas tank, in black, but I'm cheap

Haven't been to the casino...no plans on going anytime soon either.

will probably stop in when we find ourselves in the area...just to see what they came up with to try to sell it as a family place to go to...always got a kick out of Foxwoods with that logic...put together some museum on the Indian history/culture and then charge people to see it...guess the millions they made every day wasn't enough...then again really no different than Disney Parks charging close to $100 per ticket and then want to charge a ridiculous fee to park...then again, no different than a NFL/MLB game...spend anywhere from $50-whatever your foolish enough to pay for a seat, and then charge the buyer another $40 to park...surprised the casinos don't charge to park...probably the easiest money they would make..I mean everyone expects to make a bundle, so whats another $10 or $20 to park. Hope they don't read this and start getting some ideas.

When they originally got close to the opening they had announced it was going to be paid parking. There was a local uproar and they decided that might not be a good idea. I think once the revenue goes down you will see paid parking there.


Table games start at $25, no $10 or $15 tables from what I've been told. Food is expensive and not that great, again, from what I've heard.


I go once a year to Mohegan Sun in November to see Trans Siberian Orchestra, while I'm down there I usually donate $100 to the slot machines so the Indians can buy some new loin cloths and be warm in the winter

Has not gotten back on yet. Hip is still healing from a work out injury. Might not be this season. However, she has gotten to be a MUCH better passenger.

Keep your rubber on the road and your feet on the pegs and have a good ride.

Peace,

sorry to hear about the injury...worst part of working out...going right along...doing great...feeling great...then out of nowhere...bam ! … something pulls here or starts hurting there...so we stop working out not to do any more damage, give it time to rest/heal....but we don't want to get back into the rut...took forever to finally get off our a## and get started...so we start to feel somewhat better and think we're ready and go back to the routine and double bam!! Yep...wasn't really healed or ready like we hoped... Never fails either. Wonder how it happened...give her our best.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!
