    I rode the Smokey Mountain 500 last month, three days of nearly non-stop rain.

    Here we go again! :-)

    Couldn't tell you I did not pre-ride the last TransFL (Tim did) and this TransFl nobody pre-rode it on a motorcycle.

    I wanted him to and even though he's had an amazing recovery Tim wasn't quite ready yet. He's the only one of you rookies that can do it in one day and feedback reliable information in route because he actually knows where he is : ) So Dave and I did, it took several outings, two 4wd trucks, a couple flats, and about a grand worth of body damage but we got it for the most part, I think. :D

    Folks, The Rally IS ON!! :D There was some questions to me referring to a small chance of rain on Saturday etc., The reality is, if there is no rally I have to clean the house. Just so you know, there is no chance of that :photog

    Sorry to say, after a lot of consideration, I'm out. predictions of heavy rains and high gusts of wind possibilities brought us to this conclusion! hopefully ,next ride will be better!
