    I lived in West Norwalk just off the Merritt back in '90-92. Such a great place to live for a motorcyclist. I miss the Sunday morning ride to Marcus Dairy. And riding up to Loudon for bike week was pretty cool. I would ride in the winter, too, as soon as the roads were clear. It was fun riding in the cold and I was lucky I never hit any black ice. Hated the taxes though.

    I was reading the forum noticing a lot of CT posters and came down to start a CT thread :p
    There used to be jams that I would drive up to Hudson Valley for which were fun, any interest in some Tele Jamming in CT?

    I'd be interested. My schedule sucks, but maybe it could work out.

    I'm in for a jam session. What kind of music do you all like to play? I suppose bluesy/classic rock lends itself to jamming pretty well. Or jazz/rock, for people who can keep up with it (I'm weak there).

    I know a drummer but he has been too busy to jam lately, unfortunately. We could get loud at my house if it was a weekend afternoon/early evening. Lacking a drummer, I can set up some drum tracks to jam along to via software and EZ Drummer.

    Bluesy stuff and other three chord wonders seem to work best for jams. I'm in if this moves forward.
