    Sam ask me to post this ride up for him as he doesn't get on ADV much--he's a busy guy.
    I will be there as a ride leader. A whole lot of this will be on the Tennessee portion of the TAT.
    Sam has been at my house some and I've coached him on the gps thing---and now all tracks are available for all his rides---he's moved to the 21st century :D:D:D:D
    Who says you can't teach and old dog new tricks.:rofl:rofl

    This ride is getting close--you need to get on the ball and register for this ride.
    An e-mail to him will suffice if you don't mail it in---answer all questions below and request the gps file if you want it---or you can request a rollchart---which can be given to you at the riders meeting.
    I'm betting if you just showed up and paid up you would be fine---be there for the Friday's riders meeting. Have the gps file in your gps before you get there so as not take up Sam's time for doing that. If you don't know a thing about gps files or gps's--------it's too late and you'll never figure that out between now and then. Following someone with the route is best for you.
    Please do not show up Saturday morning wanting to register and get the gps file--------Sam will be too busy. So----get er' done.



    The text below I copy and pasted a file Sam sent me.

    I'm thinking there were about 70 last year--------I just talked to Sam and he said he thought there would be about 38 this year------------you can ride this ride alone if you like if you have his rollcharts or gps files.

    PM sent to you Sieg.

    I will be riding my Husky down from my house to the ride---may pack full camping gear but dump it for the ride.
    If Sieg goes----------he'll do this to me :rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl
    He always runs me off into a hole----------but helps me pull it out.
