You should go visit his museum some time. He'll probably drop whatever he's doing and give you the tour. It's worth the ride up.

Yeah, he invited me up and said "well it's only 2.5 hours... what's your excuse?"

I heard today that this was canceled because of the expected bad weather. I would try and call before riding all the way out here.

I've camped up at Mt. Cheaha before. Some of their sites are pretty nice, others, not so much. I bet it will be crowded this weekend though.

Wish I could go

A few of us will be there. Not sure of our exact schedule. May only be there Saturday. Onsite camping is full. We are staying in hotels. If you want to crash on floor, that's fine with me... May have a couch in room. You let me bust up in your room in NC to borrow shower a couple of years back, so I need to return the favor!

Yep, we will be staying at the Residence Inn on Hwy 280.
We are riding the Mt Cheaha area Friday. You should come up Thursday night and ride with us Friday. We will be at Barber Saturday.

He must have run out of pain pill and needing some liquid anesthesia

Very sad to say that I got a call and was told that they were behind schedule and I may not get my barrel until after the first of the year. I needed it by Nov 1st for the holiday season. I'm not very happy about it.
