    I JUST NOW (4:30 PM) got back to Charlotte from an out-of-town business trip. I'll be there tonight and I'll be there a little early, but I'll be in the cage myself.

    EvanADV and JMforPres are going to make it, so including HarryHammer it looks like at least 6 of us for the 3-year anniversary of this thing. Looking forward to seeing everyone...

    Last night, in your absence, we decided that you would meet us at Noon on Sunday at the gas station just on the Lake Wylie side of Rt. 49 (the smaller of the two gas stations).

    Some of us will meet at Noon and NitroRoo may meet us there at 1. I figure we hit the Palisades between Noon and 1 and then back over towards the PowerPlant after 1...

    Roo, let us know for sure if you can make it or not. Hint - the answer is yes.

    Augie's going to put together a street bike ride in December as well.

    I was using Google Maps to zoom in on where we're going riding tomorrow, and found three airplanes in flight. Take a look HERE. There's actually four if you zoom out a little.

    So just to recap the plan for tomorrow: a few of us are meeting at the gas station at Noon - we'll ride the Palisades a little and then head back to the gas station at 1 to hook up with Roo before heading deeper into SC to ride the Boike trails. The gas station is the smaller of the two on your right as soon as you cross from NC into SC on Rt. 49 at Lake Wylie.

    Technically, the Palisades could ALSO be called the Boike trails but we've got to maintain some order here! AND, I want some trails named after me so I need to get cracking.

    And Jon - looking at Google Maps again, I found THIS just a few miles from your house...

    Guys-
    Awesome freakin ride today. For those who missed.... good warm up trails, moved on to a fast paced grassy single track, some mud, some more dirt and mud trails, an awesome train bridge that we need pics of (that roo did a wheelie over missing rr ties .......we were freakin at least 50 feet high) more trails followed by an epic hill climb (Jeff made two attempts the hard way.....kudos) then...... I will let roo tell the finale,
    thanks guys, good times.......
