If I ever do anything like that trip again I'll do it Dave's way.

Thanks again for your great report!
Yep, I definitely remember passing you three.

Riding the bikes out and back to the ride may have taken some more time and wasted some tires, but it also made it feel more adventurous and did keep the costs down (50-60 mpg instead of 15 mpg from a truck) and reduce logistics (don't have to worry about parking the truck and getting back to it).
