What're you talking about? No one here knew you were gone.

Good you made it home safely. Do we get a ride report?

Hey, Y'all,

We are sliding back into town for a second look around and another eating/drinking tour of the greater Chatt area. We will be coming in next Sunday following the RA rally in Asheville NC. There will certainly be visits to the brewhaus if anyone wants to hook up for a meet/greet/eat.

It was great to meet a few of you last time, and we had a blast. Hopefully we can do it again.

Jim and Cheree

Looks promising so far. I must admit however, that I'm pretty eaten up with jealousy.

Slacker!!

I'll be there tonight with Hawk and a 'For Sale' sign on it.

Maybe 7ish? How's that sound? What time you get there Boog?
And Trout is usually there too right?

Hey Trout!
I slacked out on going to NightFall Friday I've been working a lot of yard jobs to build funds.

I'm gonna call Todd and see if he'll take a look at the DR sometime this week. I did give it a bath tho! And the Hawk is up for sale.


WildPig is in town with the wifey, I was in the Cumberlands hiking and playing around at Foster Falls yesterday.

Hang out tonight (Monday) with WildPig at the Brewhaus at 7ish

Thanks again for the hospitality when PigTrek 2k13 once again came through the Chattanooga area. We are finally home after 9 nights on the road and 1500+ miles.

We had a blast at the Brewhaus Monday night. Drank no small amount of beer, ate a lot of food, and told outrageous lies. Roller Girl Bi-Polar Bear was an unexpected addition, though I think Squirrel Girl could take her in a cage match, hands down.

Tim took us on a great riding tour of the area and helped to pretty much cement our relocation down there. The ride did get off to a bit of an ominous start though, but I'll let Cheree tell the story. There were some interesting stretches of road, and I can honestly say I had never ridden a road with literally no middle before.

On SG's recommendation, we went to Thai Smile on Tuesday where Cheree ordered AND ATE a curry with a spice level 5 of 6, recommended for native Thai people only. On two separate occasions the chef came out of the back to check on her. It was downright impressive.

Our only adventure on the way home was getting a bee in my helmet and getting stung on the forehead. Fortunately with a melon of my size, it was hard to see the swelling.

Glad you guys came to town! If anyone can show a good time in the area Tim certainly doesn't disappoint!

It was an awesome time Monday night!
Glad you guys made it safe as well!
