I'll send you the GPX file tonight. PM me an email address.

Part wolverine and part MONK (for his brewing capabilities)

It' not milk for strong bones, it has to be the malt and hops.......

If it's malt and hops then I should be pretty indestructible by now.

So, saturday meet up, anybody?

Maybe I'll just choose a place and if'n you want to show up, do so.

OK then, Chisago House cafe, Taylors falls, 8.30am, Saturday.

From there we can go.......wherever.

Stuff can go south with small groups, too. I have had groups as large as 25 riders get through the day unscathed. A brief riders' meeting beforehand is not a bad idea.

Riders meeting is a good idea. I don't know how many of us there will be sunday, but I'll make sure a meeting happens first. The last one I went on didn't have one, and it was a bit messy - but not disatrous.
