I am inclined to be there myself. Ride, eat, and visit with friends and start the new year off right.

Think about it.
I'll be riding HLC 27,28,29 There will be some Wankers up from South Florida. RV and camping. Sounds like it might get extended to the 1 st. Finally a New Years Tradition to look forward to!

Hunters might thank us for actually teaching the damn deer tolerance.
Deer roll their eyes, and don't contemplate things like... "Why the hell is this dufuss off the blacktop?" .... or "Geezuss eh Christ he needs to re-pack his exhaust!!" Few southeastern hunters have ever glassed western plains from a mesa as thundering sand rails blister the fire-breaks, or descending semis flip their Jake-brakes. The deer, (or Ibex, Oryx, antelope, elk, mulies, etc) hear and see the same crap every day... occasionally they run under the bed, but one of them farts and says "Look a squirrel" and they're back in aisle thirteen chowing down on acorns and persimmons. Hell a SMART hunter would triangulate the dead zones near the center of our ovals and wait for the vacillating herds of deer stampeding to evade the orange hordes.
Prima donna hunters who actually believe we reduce their odds of bagging their quarry are dumber than the deer.
Thanks for educating me Kip.
Well written, but my guess explaining all that in the woods at a hunters road block would mostly fall on deaf ears.

Though I could be wrong again about that too.
Might be worth a try.

Anybody wanna give it a go.

We could just hand out flyers.

I not educate you. I know you. You are ever bit as intelligent as the rest of us... I wrote that because I was bored. I not mess with ignorant hunters either, they watch too many TV to become expert hunter and trail guardians of the apocalypse strain. But you already knowed this.

BTW Tony I got me an M1 to be like you since we last shot. I even got boolits to pay you back with. Lets go shooting sometime. And riding. Or both.

My AR needs sight work, but I also got an M1 carbine and put together an 03-A3 and you can shoot those if you like. I have fairly close zeros and ammo for all 3...>(Carbine, Garand, '03)

Good to hear from you guys. Lots going on since the Trot.

Things will calm down in a few months and we can get back to dirt riding.

Things are looking good for a January 1, 2014 ride to start the year off right.

Lets see,

There is the last ride of the year on Monday Dec 30 and then I guess I will travel to HLC on the 31st and welcome in the new year and ride on the 1st.

sounds like a plan.

Thanks Vic. What are you using to edit video? I made a last minute decision to get a Gopro before I left, thinking I would use it for time lapse photos, unfortunately, it will take a few pics and shut off and the pics it did take have magenta stripes through them, seems to take video ok though.

I use the Window Moviemaker that comes with Windows 7. Works good for me and was free on my computer.

The fact that the kickstand was UP in one pic impressed me.
