Macon, looks like an early morning departure for me. We will leave as early as we can to get in as much riding as possible. Lots of good ideas.

Dave (jdrocks), can we leave around 7am?
0700, see you there.

Didn't want to come up early?

I don't necessarily want to roll alone. What route are you taking? I could rendezvous somewhere between.

Not sure what Chuck's route will be but likely to be taking 56 between 60 and 29. If so, we could meet in Lovingston. Let's see what Chuck days.

A bit of a hitch in the giddyup...in the process of looking at a house to buy I'm tied to my realtors schedule. I'll be along to the campsite tomorrow afternoon.

Always knew not to monkey around with electrical equipment when it's lightning outside but was turning down the volume of my 110v ipod player at the same time as a nearby lightning strike and got a nice surge wallop through my arm. Threw my arm back like I was a rodeo star. Scary stuff. Now I have some electrical problems in garage.

Got ya. See you there. If you have any trouble finding it keep in mind it is roughly a mile west of the Mt Pleasant trail head on Wiggins Spring. The road makes a near 90* corner at the spot where the campsite spur intersects. To make it more adventurous for you I should tell you I am going off my volatile memory and have not been there for over a year.
