See post #1 for the link. Please download it and load it into your handheld GPS, I don't know how well I'll be able to wait for everyone to regroup, I may have to let people go at their own pace, depending on the size of the group. That's all TBD. Don't miss the riders meeting at promptly 9:58, after which I will be answering questions for approximately the next 30 seconds or so. I'm rolling our at 10 sharp, just so you all know. I don't want anyone crying that I didn't wait 5 minutes, not gonna happen. Wake up, take your medicine, be ready.

That's all for now, only 10 days to go.
I've found that big groups on DS rides tend to self-segragate. Fast riders to the front, good riders hang out in the middle and I sweep the route. I wouldn't bother trying to keep a group together unless you had less than 5 riders.

With the caveat that not if the weather is bad, active precipitation

By Saturday Evening ( boy may have Little League)

I will bring my Van , van and trailer and make a wood run for the slabs I hear are at the place down rt 49.

Like a Harley ride trailer would be available to hawl

If you give me a heads up, ill be glad to go with you to get the wood.

It's not this weekend, thankfully, but next weekend. Just figured I'd say it, because people do mix up dates sometimes. Looks like were in for a hell of a Northeastern storm this weekend.

I finally committed to taking Friday off. If there's anyone still interested in camping Thursday night, let me know.

I'd consider Thursday night but I will almost definitely have to work Friday.. That doesn't rule it out however.

I sort of feel weird about leaving my gear at camp during the day but I do that when I'm out riding normally so there really isn't any difference. I'd just be further away..

Are you (Rob) still planning to camp the full time off the big bike?

I will be coming down on Sat morning and staying over Sat night...
I am a slower rider and have the whole route loaded on my gps..
So I may hang back and sweep the back of the route...

I just won't know what to do if I find someone who needs help
