We're about to breathe a sigh of relief as the huge congestion and lack of car parking draws to a fast close as Thunder Beach ends today. By the time I went over to the Osprey Hotel lobby for coffee, nearly 1/3 of the motorcycles were gone and another third left while I was there. Reckon some folks have to work tomorrow.
Coming back from McDonald's with the Sausage McMuffins, I was even able to find a parking space in front of the Driftwood .Lodge.
Sure had fun partying with the motorcyclists these last several days. Our next door neighbors came from Batesville, Indiana, and we've had some nice talks with them. Last night, we met an 82-year-old biker from Spartanburg, S.C., who had motorcycled here all the way. Sure hope I can do stuff like that when I get that old.
