    It's only 200 miles and very hilly.

    Hey everyone, my BIL has a guy who does really good silk screen work that could make us t-shirts for around $10 each. If you are interested in buying a shirt post up and let me know. If it looks like there is some interest I will work out a design and post it for approval before we order/print them. I need to know ASAP so we can give the guy some lead time before the ride.

    I was thinking about maybe having GRGR 2013 and some relevant artwork on the front and the phrase "The Shiftless Ride The Driftless" either on the back or under the artwork on the front. Waddaya think?

    How about this on the front of the shirt with the text changed to read, "GRGR 2013" across the top, and "ADVRIDER" on the bottom...

    Then on the back it would read ...

    The Shiftless Ride The Driftless

    Great River Gravel Ride 2013

    Something like this, except I want to play with the colors and the font of the text on the back, and of course the text inside the logo on the front would be changed.

    Great idea. However, I don't have the skills needed and I don't know yet if the guy who will be doing it does either. My BIL is coming over tonight so maybe I can get the skinny.
