2012 and yes Mike’s first kneeling on the left…..and Bob’s standing next to DPO.

One of the best attended events we had.

The dreaded Parkway was closed due to a landslide.

Tried to post an irrelevant comment but was foiled by not spotting the not a robot thing that I don't remember ever seeing on my reply screen on BritBike.

the group pic and this classic were taken at white top.

this was the year Gordon said, "I came into town and saw the slow group going one way. Richrd and Lannis going a different way. and the Fast group was behind me."

This has always been one of my favorite TSMR pictures. It just begs for a caption this photo contest.

I was lost. Knew what part of the country I was in…..knew which way 321 and 421 were. My brother and I did some boundary surveying in that area. But it wasn’t what I was expecting.

At least a couple of us didn’t know what was going on. Then we saw someone pull out Google.

I didn’t figure it out until we passed the chase truck……that’s not supposed to happen and we never saw the lake.

I think we can blame it on Covid……since by then a lot of us had it coursing through our veins.

Time you scuttled off back to Florida?
Or have you got a big log pile?
And a big stove?

Pretty much the same here, though we did get to 42 today. I camped out in my recliner.

Cant scuttle back to Fl. We sold the house there last year when she retired and moved here for good. Kinda glad to be out of the rat race and high crime.
