Just got in from riding 60% of the route. Revising the expected total distance down to around 100 miles and an hour and a half. We should be done with lunch around noonish, so those who want so shove off for home relatively early should be able to ride the route and still start for home around 2:00 pm and certainly not later than 3:00 pm. Terminating the route at Yemessee will put everyone back on 95 at exit 38 (38 miles north of the Georgia/SC border on the Savannah River). The I-95/I-26 interchange is I-95 exit 88.

The forecast for the Ridgeland area tomorrow is for sunny all day, getting a little cloudy in the afternoon, with a temperature of 46F at 10:00 am, 57F at 1:00 pm, and 58F at 4:00 pm. Near perfect riding conditions with the entire state dominated by a high pressure system with NO rain expected anywhere in SC on Saturday.

Here are a couple of teasers:

Don't worry about getting sick in my airplane. I give everyone a customized "ride"---the one they want. If you want to take it nice and easy, we can do that; otherwise we can spice it up a bit, but nothing crazy. You can never be SURE that maneuvers won't get someone a little woozy and barfy, though...so I'll bring a garbage bag for that!

Sorry, I didn't answer the lunch timing question. The BBQ place is really laid back and the food is served buffet style. I don't know how many people will want to fly so I figured we'd fly a few and then head on over to the restaurant and just get there when we get there, but certainly no later than noon.

If you don't make the airport, come via your favorite back roads but shoot to end up at the "middle" Ridgeland I-95 Exit (21). That will put you on Main street. West on Main and the BBQ restaurant is on the left (south side of gthe street) about 200 yards up the road from I-95. It's just past KFC, in a little strip of businesses just to the left of a bank.

A buddy and I are leaving West Ashley at 9:00.....probably won't get to the airport until 10:30ish so will likely miss the flights but should get there in time to meet up and head for lunch.

This is the one lunch I really don't want to miss, but stuck in Cola Town.

You guys are gonna love flying in a small plane. If you think riding a motorclycle
is fun, just wait. Have a great time everyone.

One final thing: If you are coming but running late, we can adjust a bit if necessary. Please call me at: 912 657 0236 (cell)

Let us know what your situation is and hopefully at least if you're lost or late, we can get you to the BBQ Grill in time for something good to eat.

Regards,


Lee...
