    I did feel bad about that. I went back to look for them (and so did Fran, but much later). I'm pretty sure they turned, when they should've kept straight (it wasn't a true intersection... more of a fork). But, they had a GPS and a doctor in their group (and they probably didn't crash), so they may have been better off than us!

    I was in the slower section of the "fast" DS ride. My stats:
    [​IMG]

    I forgot I was wearing my Contour Roam2 until we were heading down the rocky hill (although you can't see the incline in the video). Anyway, this was my first time [ever] trying to edit video (what a pain!) and I added music, since all you could hear was wind and some random exhaust notes. (The band won't mind- the bass player from The Brought Low is actually on adv [motoroberto].) Oh, I think the only pavement I included was a few seconds when I got some air.

    So if you've got 9.5 minutes of your life to kill, have at it. And, yes, I know the editing sucks- I got really sick of it after a while. And, this thing took over 3 hours to upload to the web, like I'm on dial-up (wtf?)!

    Hey I had my GoPro!....OH YEA!!! That's right... I got BOOTED shortly after the ride started due to tire selection...for some reason SOMEBODY thought it was me holding up the group because of my tires!?!?!
    I guess Ron had the right idea...don't wait for the bike behind you or u get BOOTED for being courteous!!

    Still had a great time meeting all of you people face to face!

    Thanks to Loph917 for guiding me in to the campground at night on Fri....Thanks Sallydog for charging my phone for me...Thanks Wreckster for guiding me back to the camp ground after getting BOOTED!!!!!

    Hopefully there's next year!
    New Plan for 2014: :deal

    1) Better meal plan. :1drink
    2) No waiting for the bike behind you! (keep up or be lost, or BOOTED):wink:
    3) Pass whoever u have to be in the first 5 bikes! :evil
    4) Hooliganism a must! :D
    5) This is a friendly race not just a ride. :huh

    Nice video Ron! When you condense the good stuff into 10 minutes, it almost looks like a proper Adventure Ride! :lol3

    Thanks for putting that together. It was nice meeting you this weekend. :freaky

    Awesome video! Unfortunately, I was called into work so couldn't make it. Next year its on my list for sure.

    I have a small cabin in Sullivan County in Bethel. Would anybody please care to share there gps track if recorded on the faster ride? Much appreciated, thanks.

    That would be the rider's meeting that everyone but you was at.

    As far as the people we lost, you have no clue what you're talking about, so leave it alone.

    It was a confusing intersection without a "turn", and an understandable mistake.

    Thanks to Fran to setup this ride...it was awesome to meet all u guys...
    Ron i think it was me who slowed down the fast group :)...i was doing it at a pace that was fun for me...Fran pace is always SPIRITED...never got lost though...the group always stopped for us..

    but because we were traveling at that pace we could have done 200+ miles....i assume 40% was gravel 20% offroad and then rest 40% pavement....hats off to the fast guys on the big bikes...they were rocking it...

    glad that Loph n salleydog found out a way to cook the chicken....i had family over..so i had to cook for them....however i came back later on to see that all the chicken was gone...nothing better than to see people eat ur food and have no complains :D

    i didnt want to push it with my wife and me riding other events...so we took off on sunday...did our late morning breakfast with Piotr n Edyta..my son woke me up at 6:30 and we walked arnd the campground for the next 2 hours....however many points i got from not riding sunday and letting the wife sleep in the morning got cancelled when she found out that i had left the fridge door open over the weekend and she had to throw out all the food. :(

    hats off rudy, that was killer chicken! and the pieces were ginormous! not stupid spicy, it was just flat perfect. :clap:freaky i tried to find you after to thank you, but you were gone. i didn't want to start poking around tents trying to see where you were, and get a peeping tom accusation... if you could send me the sauce recipe, that would be siiick... :ear

    sorry about the fridge, just blame bk.rd. or tell her you were not there for the Fridge meeting... :lol3

    Rudy, your pace was fine by me. We really weren't left behind (too far) until we hit Rt 30 at the end of the day... no big deal. I've never done that much asphalt on this bike... my ass was jealous of Rodney's day-long-ass.

    Great ride. First time I was able to make it. Took the Super Tenere on Frans ds ride. Well done, great ride. Easy to tell all of the time and hard work he put into it. Nice to meet all you guys. Let's do it again!
