That works

That works for me. I'll get my pass before hand. Friday nights are movie nights with the kids so I'd like to be heading home by around 3:30 4:00. Don't let me jam you up though. If you where planning a longer ride you can either point me to Spec, I'll have a GPS also, or we can call it a valiant effort and I'll see you on the next ride.

Actually I have to go by Jackson Guard and get a camping permit anyway. I will try and get over there around 10:30ish and meet you at Spec.

We will get you home in plenty of time for movetime...

All are welcome...just 'splorring and takin it easy...

BTW - heavy rains overhere today so it should be good riding at Spec...

I'll either be riding at Mossy or Brewton Saturday a.m. to get the new to me 250EXC dialed in. Trying to get a hold of the people in Brewton and see what their hours are for Saturday (I also have to be back around noon). Can't do Spec due to the 250 not being street legal, at least not yet and it's geared way LOW.....

Friday and Saturday Rides

OK I am rethinking the camping thing...

I think I will just take the truck to Spec, meet up with Rotorhead and then come home Friday night. Then ride Spec Saturday morning also if others are interested.

Skid - would be happy to meet you at Spec Saturday morning... any time you want/need....

Nothing for me Sunday.

Check in with me guys!

Vic,
Would really like to ride this weekend but have completely filled up my schedule once again! Should be ready to go next weekend for any pre-TT rides still needed. I've got the Katoom in great shape with the valves adjusted, radiator cooling fan installed and a new high powered battery that does the trick for both cold and hot starts.

So a Tiger 800 is the machine for your trails over there?
And with stock tires too I assume.

Cheaha Camping/Ride next weekend.

Cheaha camping spots are filling up fast according to the camp store person.

Linky to get your reservations in asap:
http://www.alapark.com/cheaharesort/Contacts/

Tell the call taker that you want the upper campground.
NOT the places by the antenea array at the very top of the mountain so we can be close together.

I've made my reservation and its something like $5.75 for additional tents on my spot. Hell,,,,,,let's crowd up on it.

The itenerary is changing a bit this go around since (by no fault of their own) some riders simply cannot make it in until late friday afternoon.

We're still leaving friday morning early as scheduled and will meet-up at the upper campground with knobbies rolling about 10:30-11:00am'ish. Haven't decided if we'll make it tough/scenic or easy/scenic for the friday ride.

SATURDAY MORNING WILL BE THE HUMDINGER RIDE.

Knobbies rolling out of the campground at 9 am.
That is all. Carry on.

Todays Ride Report

Rotorhead and I rode about 75 miles of the Long Loop today. Weather was ultra fantastic. We just loped along and had fun, explored a lot of dead ends, ate lunch on the Bay, and hit a log....both of us on the same one!... we had fun...

The long loop will give riders a real good taste of Eglin... you get it all with this ride. Deep sand (of course) but also lots of clay roads and easy jeep roads. There are some sections that may be "non- big bike Friendly". There are always bypasses.

Madhouse...
I enjoyed your ride last year and Im really sorry I cant make it this year. I;m sure everyone will have a blast. I know from experience a good ride starts and ends with a good ride leader...and you are one of the best!!!

I am OUT for tomorrow. Sorry Skid and others...
