hardwaregrrlAnybody riding off road on Saturday? Not gonna be able to get there till late morning.[/QUOTE]


How long is the road you mentioned ? It looks to be across I 40 beyond the camp. I will probably ride up and back Sat. I can decide whether to ride the Guzzi or the GS with a time frame.

It also barely stuck in a large vein causing a rather large inclusion to pop up within seconds and a jet of veinous blood to squirt out the tiny hole in the skin. At first glance I thought it was arterial, but then noticed the color and the fact it was only one squirt from the inclusion.

Whew! Glad that's out of the way now and I can finish final preparations presumably without further incident.

Gad Zooks Mark!! Glad your all better man!

He couldn't see the bush because of his current facial hair configuration would be my guess (which explains a lot of his pre-rally injuries)...one day he's going to suck his face into a final drive...

Part way down, call for help

Hello. I am on my way down with the Canadian crew and today the starter on my 1985 R80 G/S died. We are able to push it and get it going so we will continue down. And we have checked the relay and wiring to confirm it is all working. That leaves the starter. Several taps and she won't go. Can anyone help us out by bringing a good used starter or a new one to the rally. We have many talents and will be able to change it there if I get my hands on one. Please let me know, we have access to ADV during our trip. Or I can be reached at rob_robinson@manulife.com Thanks for your help. Rob (Puddle).

Latest weather report is highs in the 50's (15-18 for our metric friends) Saturday and Sunday. Rain off and on all weekend.

We have been in a funky pattern here the last couple of weeks. Monday-Thursday are perfect for camping and then a cold/cool front rolls through on Friday bringing lower temps and rain. This weekend appears no different.

Forecast for Asheville (NOT Cruso...it's 20 miles as the crow flies, but a weather center away...) is 69F and scattered showers chances at nada to slim.

Saturday? 62F with possible showers, probably later in the day.

Put it this way: it is spring in Appalachia. Anything is possible.

That's why I like it here
