With my acute sense of direction you'll probably see me come up behind you on the big bike route tomorrow.

Today was fun... tiring but fun..

Thanks again to Drewha for "Camp Drew" and to CtKTM for leading us non-roll chart bringing noobs around the turkey run.. Of course thanks to Sledstorm and all the Ramblers that made the ride happen as well.

Yes, the Somers ride was great. Long, great trails through the woods. I'm glad the first-timers all made it out ok. We all got pretty separated, but that's not really surprising. Looking forward to the next one.

Great ride.. I feel like I got run over by an elephant somewhere along the route.. did anyone happen to see it??

Thanks to everyone who helped me pick up my bike, get it out of a mud hole or over a log.. I am pretty sure I wore at least a couple of the other riders out before their normal breaking point.

I know that a $$ figure cant be put on such grand times, but this is how I figure it...

1. $80 in gas to get there and back
2. $85 for new set of hand guards
3. $125 for a new headlight
4. $125 new handlebar
5. $45 new grips
6. $45 NETRA membership
7. $40 entry fee
8. $55 Chiropratic Adjustment
9. $10 in motrin

So that was my $610 ride.. thanks for inviting me

The elephant was in your backpack..
How did you figure it was a fuse that blew.?
your headlight cracked too.?
Look a the bright side, some event some time just might cost you the entry fee..
