We must all go through a rite of passage and it must be physical, it must be painful, and it must leave a mark.

There aren't really any words I can say to fully explain how very much you are appreciated.

THANK YOU !

Aww, shucks.
Thank you for the kind words.
I've often said that wheelers are a fantastic group of people, I guess that makes me one of them.

After adjustments, the route will either be 71 or 80 miles depending on:

A) How long it takes us to get to the "optional" portion that we can cut out if we're running late

B) Receipt of our final piece of written permission before the event. (Everyone say a prayer that it comes in. It would add a really nice section of trail to the route)

Even though we've had to avoid any Federal Forest Roads, we have put together a GREAT ride!

Oh! Before I forget, I ran the route in my '79 F150 Highboy, so full sized rigs WILL fit.
HOWEVER, I don't give a crap about my paint job!

IF you have nice paint and want to keep it that way, I HIGHLY recommend you give it a good coat of quality wax before you come out. Some of those old Township owned roads are getting a little overgrown. Some brush rubbing down the sides of larger rigs should be expected. Don't get me wrong, it's not like they're quad trail width, just a little narrow.

See you in a week!

Add one more vehicle and 3 people that will meet up with us part way through the run. SteveO can't get up early enough to meet us at 10:30.

This would be the original. Probably about 2 1/2 times the "other" SteveO's age, lol.

OK- so after the great ride in the woods this weekend, how much pavement time will there be? Mine is alergic to it.... like 35 MPH MAX of I get a realy nasty wobble. I'll try to get it toed out just a little before then to help.....

Also, the boy may be with us after all. Does someone need a riding partner? He's 15 and not much trouble..... The wife will be with me and he is going to get pretty cramped locked up in my back seat if he does tag along.
