    Yeah from the looks of that, the gravel section is only about 2 or 3 miles. She will be OK with that.

    Count me in on Hickory Park on Sunday.
    I live in Stanhope, if any of you have an idea on a time you will be riding through the area I would be eager
    to join in.

    I am pretty open on a start time, I may need to make a quick run to DesMoines before I am really ready.
    (brake light issue on the son-in-laws GS)
    Should know soon, I will post the progress...

    Waiting for the son-in-law to show up, we will try and track some of you down.
    At minimum we will meet at Hickory Park at 4:30.

    Fallacy, the thing you need for your Alaska trip is this: http://www.google.com/products/cata...a=X&ei=qq6UT_q5KKLd0QHYg6DnBw&ved=0CCgQ8gIwAA

    It's call ThermaCell, and it really does work. Unbelievably well at that.

    Best of luck on your trip. FYI, an ADVer called CJRacer (CJ Designs) ran a Heidenau to Alaska. It didn't wear out: http://cjdesignsllc.wordpress.com/2011/06/28/heidenau-k60-scout-tires-a-review-on-a-big-bike/ Good choice!

    Me...nobody ever likes me...but my wife always wins em over with her cooking. *sigh*

    Had a good time (if not slightly chilly and damp) riding and finally meeting (re-meeting) a few folks.

    Looking forward to more of these. And thinking seriously about the Memorial Day ride down to Arkansas and back...
