I guess the PO of my DR used the same stuff. After 100 miles of gravel with Paul and Monte it rinsed right off. Prolly the last time that will happen. Monte took some pics of the weekend. Hopefully he will post some up of our three state gravel crunch. Monte??

Paul has recently decided to take up a career in modeling. Look for him on the front of boxes of pancake mix everywhere.

Sorry Trout, that's the only pic I've got from the ride on Saturday.

That's funny. Keeping the rain off his shiny head. Thanks Monte. See everybody at Nitefall. Should be a perfect night for it. It will feel good to actually ride down again. Everyone ride safe. Chattanooga drivers normally forget how to drive on holiday weekends.

Just in case

Well I have yet to produce evidence of myself being at the RDV as well as several other trips.

But a heads up: I work in North Ga. Rain or shine, I'm rolling out of the valley around 7am ish Wednesday (tomorrow morning) for my regular route. Dalton, Chatsworth, Calhoun, Cedartown blah blah.....

Sunday June 2nd the DR and I will be meeting some middle TN peeps for a Prentice Cooper ride.

Any N Ga peeps wanna camp spot for the weekend or anyone in the area are more than welcome to come and pitch a tent in my yard.
9am is meeting time at PC eastern

Looks like the chance for rain is slim Saturday. Anybody wanna ride to Tellico, maybe hit the singletrack trails? Pack food for a trailside lunch somewhere, leave from Monte's launchpad at the BP, corner of E Brainerd and Ooltewah-Ringgold, say 10AM? If you're interested, send me a text four two three 718-3526.

Additionally, I will be reporting the trip along the way using Twitter as it seems to be easy to post pictures and short updates. Once I get back, I'll do a full write up of the trip on here. My handle is @lookkg261 or you can go to

See everybody in June.
I just checked on Thomas. He is crusing around the Tetons on day 18 of his "Big Ride". He's not scheduled to be back at work for 2 more weeks so it will be interesting to see where he goes next. Send him some good vibes as he travels solo around this great country of ours.

It was a great day! I need to post a couple of pics I got. I hope David fared well in taking a day yesterday to go to the dentist.

Looking forward to another ride sometime!

Those panoramic pics look pretty awesome! They turned out excellent!
