David, Grand Paul ( thank you again) taught me how to “plot” a route on Google maps but I accidentally deleted Windy’s written directions he sent me a couple months back.

He’s been busy and I don’t want to bother him about it.

So……at this point I don’t have a route map.

I’m just gona jump into the middle of the pack and try my best to keep up. If that doesn’t work I’ll bail and make my own way back.

richrd says it’s going to rain……..the weather has been spotty the past couple of months. Can’t really tell when or where a cell will pop up. But so far around my place ( I’m about 80 miles from Windy’s) the forecast has been wrong more than right.

See ya soon…….G

May I suggest that everyone who is trailering in bring some fire wood, so we don't have to tear down any more of windy's fences.

Lots of states don't let you bring in firewood from other states. Not sure if it's to keep unwanted wood living critters out or local loggers employed but Mass and Connecticut both have big signs as you cross the border on I91 south.

Motorcycles are dangerous enough Gordon. Bring chainsaws into the mix and the next thing you know there will be alcohol and guns too...... ohno

It's bugs. Pine bark beetles, emerald ash borers, sudden oak death spores, there's lots of pests that need to stay away .... !

I say chaps I was wondering if all y'all wouldn't mind little old me showing up in 2023...?

Can't leave our Kev all on his own, not with them Alligators about.... shocked

Now dude's, ifn I got this right y'all now camp at Windy's, well we can't bring our camping gear in that Kerosene Pigeon, so is there an alternative that we could use. We'll sort things like bike loan nearer the time, but any offers would surely be rewarded with Ale. Especially for bikes that can make it to Maggie Valley and back, sure do have a hankering for a Wheels Through time museum visit again.... wink


Tell Wade the Red Pants are coming.... laughing

Well i would be more than honored to break bread with you lot but we will not have any if that queen - king stuff on this side of the pond as we done sorted that out. As for camping there are more options round the corner so you can be well taken care of.
