    (For a Gold Star, that is the opening comment from what show?)

    I'm in, to follow from my computer but I sure wish I could be there on my bike! :ricky

    If you get to Eureka, be sure to stop at the Black Lightning Motorcycle Cafe. :thumb

    Some of those delays on 36 can be 30 minutes long, but at least we are past the blazing heat. Those interruptions are just a blip in the ride.

    If you haven't gone by the 36 'work' yet.
    Cut north on FH1 to 299. Take the road to the north
    at the top of South Fork Mountain. Stay on the pavement to 299.
