    ER70S-2, thanks, been a lurker here on Adv for a few years, I see you perusing the DRRiders forums often, who woulda thought, maybe its a DR thang or DR induced.

    Welcome and definitely swing by.
    If you haven't found the Geezer thread, take a look in there. It's where we discuss all this stuff.

    Ok, we're about a week out.

    It would be helpful if everyone that's coming could let me know when they plan on being here to make food planning a bit easier.
    I'll update the second post(list) with the info.

    Also, please take a look at that post with the list.
    If you plan on coming and you aren't on the list, let me know.
    If you are on the list, and can't make it, let me know that too.
    If you have any food restrictions post it up or PM me.

    I'm leaving my place Saturday and will be turning up in MI Sunday. If you need a hand getting stuff ready, I'll head right to your place. Otherwise, I'll tour around a bit.

    Thanks, I'm all set for the setup. Not much to do. Your welcome anytime, but If it was me, I'd do some touring.

    I plan on leaving KC on Monday morning, heading to southern Michigan and hopefully getting there Monday night or Tuesday fairly early. Then spending some time with my kid, then heading north most likely Tuesday. Planned arrival Tuesday evening.

    I'll be popping in on Wednesday day. Maybe even take the mighty DR650 out on the mx track. Been awhile since it had a dirt nap.

    Gene and I are planning on riding through the night on Monday (less heat and traffic) and arriving Tuesday early morning most likely.
