    Clark, thanks for another fantastic weekend, Mary and I had a blast.

    Thanks also to everyone we rode with this weekend, especially Sean & Leah for a fantastic gap tour friday; you guys make leading a ride look easy, but it ain't!

    Lastly, thanks to all of you FF's: Saturday dinner raised $1947 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. You are all generous and handsome people in addition to savages!

    See you next year, Jaime & Mary

    we get a bit farther and i'm all ready to capture the momentous occasion of cleaning "that road" (the image below is linked to an un-exciting short video clip). shrineclown applies gas. no forward go. ruh roh. houston we may have a mechanical. at this time i didn't know about "the daisies". wrenches did come out. might have warranted a daisy sticker.

    and despite the odds kaw4life managed to stay for the entire duration of cromag. i'm still slightly reeling from this welcome yet unexpected phenomenon.

    Saw a lot of adventure bikes and trail bikes ride by the house this weekend. Very hard to watch everyone else having fun while I have to keep renovating my house. Turns out the CCC also had a big ride this weekend.

    Thank you all for coming to the Cromag Campout party yet again. As always, it was a good group get together with lots of laughs. Did not set an attendance record, but we did set a new cord wood record. 7.5.

    Special thanks to Sixwatt and his bride for another awesome BBQ on their anniversary weekend. To Kyle B for getting you all morning coffee. Beez for a sticker that still makes me laugh out loud. To Ritalin for the cannonball run for parts, a huge thanks. Baiku for getting a wounded bird home.

    Rich is off the list for talking about the list.

    Seriously, I hope you all had a great time. We will pull off year 10 in VT next September. I am shooting for 9/12 through 9/16 with the state next year. Will post in Rallies as soon as I have date confirmed.

    I overheard some of the ladies in attendance discussing this very issue and they determined it couldn't have been more than 6.
    Thanks for another great event Clark. As usual, the only issue with Cromag is deciding what great rides to go on while missing out on the other great rides. It's a special event in a special place.

    Was sure hoping to get more pictures this year, but i spent all my picture taking time trying to catch up to @guymanbro and the rest of the group on Saturday i didn't get many shots in. Really only got this shot when we dined at a fine local establishment.

    Another. Epic. Adventure.

    #11 in a row for me, and definitely one of the best.

    Thanks to all that made it that way. You know who you are.
