    Let us know how ya did sawride, pulling for ya. I'm thinking if we could plan an RTE within 13.1 miles of your house you could run a half marathon to the RTE (Run To Eat), have lunch, another half marathon back. I'll bring a spare helmet in case you eat too much and need a ride home. I am good like that.

    Hope ya had a good day jub jub, it was a great lunch, I think Ray Plant made as many trips as I.....but who's counting!!!!!

    That is a full day, hope it went well.

    Bummer MrMac, hope you felt good enough to go to the cabin, if not, wishing you a speedy recovery.

    To all who did not make it, we missed you, hopefully next time. It was a great lunch, good to see Mrs EZMoney, EZMoney, Ernbo, Borrec, Ray Plant, rascalman, NxtGoRnd, Jaimes and myself. There might be a picture or two forthcoming although I did not see Mrs EZMoney with camera in hand like the last few events. Good day on the bike, nice roads, good weather, great lunch, priceless conversation.

    Okay... I need a little orange ass chewing also. My Son In Law & I had plans to make the ride, but, seeing no chatter, I cancelled the plan, yesterday. Flame away!

    Terry, it went MUCH better than Soldier Marathon. My official time was 1:53:19 (8:39/mile pace) and good enough to get me 2nd in my age group 65+ aka: the old guys. Overall I was 77th of 490 finishers. I like your Run To Eat idea but it’s probably better that I block out the Ride To Eat date on my calendar. If I ran 13.1 To Eat I don’t think anyone would want to be in the same restaurant with me unless there was a shower handy. I’ll make an effort to lock in the next RTE.

    I was hoping you could make it Tuna, have not seen you since the RTE in Gray. Perhaps next time. Apologize to the Son In Law & we are good.

    Really? A No-Chatter cancel? :fpalm Let that be a lesson to ya......we post it........we show up..........we eat.....no chatter necessary.....

    The Fried Tomato is a big hit with the locals and was with those of us who could make it. Totally forgot to take pics of their buffet but I did enjoy a meager three trips to the bar compared to the Buffet Master, Terry who made I believe, 8..... which of course includes 3 salad plates, but he also added a dessert plate this time..... and man, pickles and salt. Salting the table made me think he was going to take a bit of the table.

    Now..... in other news :*sip* there is one more opportunity in 2017 for an end of the year RTE :dukegirl. It has to be on the 31st, which conveniently is a Sunday. So here is my initial idea.....:y0!
    Seeing as Jub, the former keeper of the GATOR map who relinquished his duties and blew off a RTE for a Corvette Club thing,... and he lives rather centrally located to most GATOR participants and earlier this year proved he could handle a load of guests in his house,... I nominate Jub's place for the RTE.
    I suppose each of us could "donate" $5-$10 or bring something to eat or drink to help him and Carol defray any expenses..... :beer

    I could do any of the above, Eatonton might be the better choice geographically for the east, west, north and middle Ga riders.

    True, but if I read correctly they only serve brunch on Sunday. No buffet. No problem for me but you may just have to order one of each to curb that appetite.:lol3

    Most likely will have family stuff going on, but if not, any of those should do..

    i like the load of guests in his house - we could all show up sat - spend the night - grill something Sun - maby stay to ring in the new year - Mr Terry could bring his pig - Rascalman could bring his dog - Mrs Ez could probably borrow the horse for a few days - Nxt has Sasha - yep it's Jub house for me

    There's a little pizza joint in Gray called Chevy's. It has large picnic tables outside, and really good food. I can talk with the owner about seating if that's an option.

    It’s a buffet, waiting on them to reply to me but centrally located ( more or less) and big enough to handle Terry
