More than half the reason to go on this trip was to be able to ride and hang out with you my friend. I understand and respect your choice. You will be missed. frown

My bike is in the back of the truck pre-snowpocalypse that we are are supposed to be getting starting at 1 PM CST here in Milwaukee. My wonderful wife has offered to drive me down South of this mess and drop me and the bike off, then return back North with the truck.

I'm still in. See you Friday when I get to Blowing rock.

I keep forgetting to post this. If anybody coming up from the south needs a place to stay tonight, Thursday, or Friday, or on the return trip, send me a PM, e-mail me at libssd@gmail.com, or phone 404-640-9086.

Enclosed garage with tools, guest room (and a very comfy sofa if more than one). From our place on the west side of Dahlonega, it's about 270 miles to Blowing Rock via the BRP.

Pam and I are riding up to Tellico Plains for lunch at Tellico Grains today, so I won't be paying much attention this afternoon....


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.
