Sounds good. It's been too wet to try difficult stuff anyway.

We can do a TOT recon ride, just look for and document dirt and gravel... but that may be boring. I've heard of Swingset's Big Bike Ride... any experience with this?

Whatever... I'm up for anything.

The first edition left where I live north of Granville and meanders east then north to make a big Licking/Coshocton loop.

The second starts in Danville and goes down to Coshocton, then down through Muskingum.

They both hit a lot of gravel, but it's familiar stuff if you've ridden those counties much. I put 'em together to have a big bike ride that was close to Columbus/Central Ohio.

I can send ya the .gpx of either ride if you want them.

Yeah, I'm also up for whatever... and my GPS is kaput, so call it and I'll just tag along. I have all day and then some.

Did you recently over oil the air filter?

It was run out of fuel and switched to reserve for the first time since I have owned it. I assume that there was some crud hanging out in the bottom of the tank that got sucked into the reserve tube since it's lower. We also added fuel from a questionable source. We pulled the carb on the side of the road and blew the junk out of it, I'm just guessing there is another hunk of crud or spot of water in there someplace.

As of right now, I'm 50/50 for riding on Thursday. I have some stuff to do, so if you guys are doing Swingset's route, I can catch up with you since it;s on my side of the state.

Wow... slow day here!

Meef and Matt... still interested in riding tomorrow? I don't have a route... but I'll throw something together. Danville is directly between us, so we can use that standard meeting spot. I'll just link the smallest roads I can find together, from there towards Cambridge. Then we'll just play it by ear.

Is 10 to early with the cold? Should we shoot for rolling out of the lot around 11am?

Anyone here use ting for cel phone / data service?

ting.com

I'm kind of tempted... I've been out of contract with Verizon for like 7 years and ting would save me a lot on cel service, in fact it looks like for $40 or so a month I could cover my current uses of text, calls, and an adequate amount of data.

Curious if it's as good as the online reviews say it is.

No, but I'm looking as well. My bill is up 50% since alltel was bought out by Verizon. Did you see this article?
