Found the cap this morning at 3:30AM. Got up for pee break and it occurred to me where it might be --- went to look and sure enough there it was.

Lost things are always in the last place you look...

The saga continues. Maybe by this afternoon.

Why is it so hot out there today?

Hopefully a check ride this afternoon at Timberlake!!!

I'm afraid we may have. I just did a 20 mile loop at Brox and am dripping. I ran into Moab and OC last night and started putting something together for Monday. Garrett may grace us with his new 5hundy. I'm thinking medium burn, keep the dust down, lets not get exhausted pace rolling out at 0800.

Maybe Vic will be up and running.

Sound good?

That would be great, and especially if Vic is cooking with gas again; just let me know the location!

Brox was the consensus so we'll call it 0800 roll out from there. It'll be good to see you out there.

Come if you like.
We're meeting @ Wafflehouse on hwy 90 in Milton (or Aces if a bunch are coming) @ 7am.
Melvin has a great ride from there to Greenville Al and back planned out.

I'll be on the 650vStrom.



There will be dirt to go along with secondary paved roads.
