We plan on riding in the rain tomorrow.

Just watched the weather, supposedly, just a chance of light showers tomorrow !

Looks like I might make it after all.

Looks like about a 60-70 percent chance that I will be able to make it on Sunday. Working hard on it but I won't know for sure until Sunday morning. My brother is leaving next week on a 3 week trip. I am taking care of his business for him while he is away and I have a lot of things to catch up on before he leaves.

So where is the Mcdonalds in Lenoir? Is it north or south of Hwy 18?

Kenny

I'll be keeping an eye on the weather, but if it looks better than worse, I'll be at the McD's in Hickory. Don't wait on me though.....

Not raining now, and no rain on the 600 mile doppler, I'm on my way down the mtn. See you folks in a few.

Another excuse, I mean reason to ride back up that way.

Sure wish I could have made it today. I was up all night with a sick kid. I did get out for a little while this afternoon in the South Mtn. area.
