    Thanks man, I'm getting by. Bone doc says 4 weeks in this walking boot and I should be good to go, the ribs on the other hand will be doing a lot to keep the beer companies in the black. Kinda funny the radiologist saw a fracture in my ankle, the bone doc says that it is at least 10 years old, I have no idea when I did that.

    Z50R and Sallydog rode with me to Long Trail and I figured I could get back to camp from there, just as I was heading east on Rt 4 I passed you as you were heading west on that BMsomethingorother.

    I was gonna post a pic of my black-n-blues but figure Loph would take it as a challenge :evil

    You'll all be glad to hear that since leaving Barnard, Hawk has made it all the way to Danbury, CT mostly under his own power... linky

    :lol3

    Glad BBQ'er is recovering nicely, again it was great to see everyone.

    Cheers,

    Lance

    Hit me back on 12/22 to see if it is on! :lol3

    I reserved the park for the 19th through the 22nd next September...so there will be something going on.

    If Hawk shows up with a stub fingered flat-top toe-head riding bitch on that KLR, I am going to have to close it down though. Unless, he has the fuel buffalo too.

    I think I just spit coffee out of my nose. :rofl

    Always a pleasure riding with you Mike.

    I love the commentary at the end of the vid. :lol3

    Its too bad we couldn't show Kyle a better time, where the riding didn't suck :evil

    Also, a big thanks to Clark for keeping this whole thing on track, and organizing such a great time.

    Yes .... IN FOR NEXT YEAR.

    To Kurt, Mike, Larry, David, Terry,

    Thank you for coming on the ride with me. I loved taking you all through some of my private stock of great roads! The thing is, there are so many more to share, too!

    Oh, I don't know if I mentioned this, but a good share of the roads we went on are the same roads that I would go out at 2 in the morning and practice on with the rally car. You know those tight twisty dirt roads we were on (including Lincoln Gap), yep, would terrorize the woods in the middle of the night on them.

    If anyone is ever coming up this way, always feel free to get in touch. At any time I'm ready to go out on a ride and show people around, or if you want, I can help create a route for you. Then again, mapping out a route is an easy thing to do. It's hard to find a bad road in Vermont.

    ADKBeemer and everyone I got a chance to talk with, what a great time, awesome conversations, and amazing stories. And I'm sorry that there were so many people that I didn't get a chance to talk to. Well there's always next year.

    Clark, so much can be said, but the most powerful words are thank you for taking care of us all!

    Enjoy,


    Liz

    Great vids Kyle!

    I couldn't help but chuckle everytime I saw the little silver camera attached to your silver helmet.

    It reminded me of "mini me" - or an obscure reference to a Family Guy episode: "helmet guy needs some love".

    :lol3

    Yes I did miss it. I couldn't even tell you what road we were on most of the time, even with a GPS!
