Nailed a deer in my Camaro two weeks ago so I've been getting rides to work from the old lady and back from a coworker that lives in my neighborhood. This past weekend I broke the bike back out. Had to trickle charge the battery for a few hours to bring it back to life after picking one up from Home Depot for 20 bucks. Really wasn't trying to ride it in this cold weather because the tires that I have on there aren't the best for it.

I'm going out of the country at the end of the month and don't want to deal with the Camaro until I come back at the end of January. If it snows, I'll just get dropped off, but for now, I get to freeze my ass off for the next 3 weeks.

Lesson of the day: Watch out for those horny deer.

Damage to Camaro: Hood, bumper, passenger mirror, blinkers, passenger fender are toast. Door has a hole by the mirror where his antlers poked through the fiberglass.

i don't know about Virginia but using a vehicle to hunt deer is baiting/artificially attracting deer and considered illegal in these parts.

Does your ZX have a loud exhaust? I find that with my baffle in my arrow exhaust, I see waaaaay too many deer. If I take it out... Virtually none. So, my neighbors have to hear it fire up at 5 am :D

Also, look into over the grip heaters. I forget the name brand, but I got some 3 years ago off of eBay. Pretty cheap, and work well in colder weather.

Montana diary

Aug. 12 Moved to our new home in Montana. It is so beautiful here. The mountains are so majestic. Can hardly wait to see the snow covering them.

Oct. 14 Montana is the most beautiful place on earth. The leaves have turned all colors and shades of red and orange. Went for a ride through the beautiful mountains and saw some deer. They are so graceful. Certainly they are the most wonderful animals on earth. This must be paradise! I love it here.

Nov. 11 Deer season will start soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill such a gorgeous creature. Hope it will snow soon. I love it here.

Dec. 2 It snowed last night. Woke up to find everything blanketed with white. It looks like a postcard. We went outside and cleared the snow off the steps and shoveled the driveway. We had a snowball fight, I won. Than the snowplow came by. We had to shovel the driveway again. What a beautiful place! I love Montana!!

Dec. 12 More snow last night. I love it. The snowplow did it's trick again to the driveway. I love it here.

Dec. 19 More snow last night. Couldn't get out of the driveway to get to work. I am exhausted from shoveling. Fucking snowplow.

Dec. 21 More of that fucking white shit fell last night. I've got blisters on my hands from shoveling snow. I think the snowplow hides around the corner and waits until I'm done shoveling the driveway. ASSHOLE!!

Dec. 25 Merry Fucking Christmas. More fucking snow!! If I ever get my hands on the son-of-a-bitch who drives the snowplow, I swear I'll kill the bastard. Don't know why they don't use more salt on the roads to melt the fucking ice.

Dec. 27 More of the white shit last night. Been inside for three days except to shovel the driveway each time the fucking snowplow goes by. Can't go anywhere. Car's stuck in a mountain of that shit. The weatherman says to expect another 10" again tonight. Do you know how many shovels full of snow 10" is??

Dec. 28 The fucking weatherman was wrong. We got 34" of that white shit this time. At this rate it won't melt before summer. The snowplow got stuck down the road and the ASSHOLE came to my door and asked to borrow my shovel. I told him I had broken six shovels already shoveling all that fucking white shit he had pushed into the driveway. I broke the seventh one over his fucking head.

Jan. 4 Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get groceries. On the way back, a fucking deer ran in front of the car and I hit it. About $3,000 damage to the car. Those fucking beasts should all be killed. Wish the hunters had killed them all last November.

May 3 Took the car to the garage in town. Would you believe, the son-of-a-bitch is rusting out from all the salt they put on the roads??

May 10 Moved to Florida. Can't imagine why anyone in their right minds would ever want to live in that fucking state of Montana!!!!

Yeah, I can't believe this week's been so good to us. Generally, 30's and lower is not my favorite temperature range to ride in. Chin gets a bit numb, but at least there's no ice on road yet.

I had a period where I would ride no matter what the temperature, but now unless there is some special reason for me to need the bike ( like a day before a holiday, where I've want to filter through heavy traffic), I only ride 40 degrees and up.

Without heated gloves or grips, my hands just get too cold when the temps are freezing. I have enough under armor for my legs and torso, and a good balaclava. Toes and Fingers still become stiff and painful.
