I'd try to make it but my bike is down for the count. Nothing major broke, just a LOT of maintenance at once.

The Somers Fun Run this summer was my first Turkey Run and while it was indeed fun it still kicked my ass.. I've got other (Pachaug) plans this weekend but I think 2013 will be the year of the Turkey Run for me...

There will probably/possibly be one more Pachaug camp-n-ride this year Swathman. Keep an eye on the official thread.. http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...777479&page=36
There's no promise of "free crawfish" though so I'm not sure if it would be worth the drive down from NH!!...

Here's a video from the Halloween Camp-n-Ride. Was just a ride for me on Sunday, but had a great time. Pfunk should have worn a snorkel instead of a tophat! I'd be happy to help with a Pachaug cleanup.

Here is the YouTube Link (maybe someone can send me instructions on how to load the video frame?)

Thumb Pachaug GPS GARMIN ZUMO?

Hoping to get in there tomorrow 9/10/12. Is there a GPS Route that's Zumo friendly? Oh, I'm on a Apple Computer too.

We rode the southern loop today with a mammoth crew.. 12-14 riders... there are at least a half dozen large trees across the trail. We made work arounds for each of them, but they are not pretty. No way I have the chainsaw skills to remove these trees.. someone with real skill needs to take them on.. I would certainly help, but I just dont know how to cut section out of a full size pine tree under tension.

We rode the turkey run in Wrentham today. I think it was the King Phillip club that ran it. Tough day but it was a great ride while it lasted.
