Sam ask me to post this ride up for him as he doesn't get on ADV much--he's a busy guy.
I will be there as a ride leader. A whole lot of this will be on the Tennessee portion of the TAT.
Sam has been at my house some and I've coached him on the gps thing---and now all tracks are available for all his rides---he's moved to the 21st century
Who says you can't teach and old dog new tricks.
This ride is getting close--you need to get on the ball and register for this ride.
An e-mail to him will suffice if you don't mail it in---answer all questions below and request the gps file if you want it---or you can request a rollchart---which can be given to you at the riders meeting.
I'm betting if you just showed up and paid up you would be fine---be there for the Friday's riders meeting. Have the gps file in your gps before you get there so as not take up Sam's time for doing that. If you don't know a thing about gps files or gps's--------it's too late and you'll never figure that out between now and then. Following someone with the route is best for you.
Please do not show up Saturday morning wanting to register and get the gps file--------Sam will be too busy. So----get er' done.
The text below I copy and pasted a file Sam sent me.

how many riders generally show up for this?
I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but let's take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself.

PM sent to you Sieg.
I will be riding my Husky down from my house to the ride---may pack full camping gear but dump it for the ride.
If Sieg goes----------he'll do this to me
He always runs me off into a hole----------but helps me pull it out.
