    Wish I could make it, was looking foward to it. but need to do a lot of extra cred. in 1 class plus the final tues, and then a cert. exam, for a class I hate. Ins. lady called to day to tell me whats going on left a voice mail on my phone, Ive called her 3 times last week, and twice to day and always out for the day. Not sure whats going on one ins. lady calls me to tell me to call another- WTF. Went to my 2nd appt. to the orthopedic Dr, and he told me the swelling has gone down and it should not be as much pain.
    Holy Shit he was right, the swelling has gone AND the pain IS much less ($60.00) then he asked if I wanted any pain pills. I told him pain is weakness leaving the body. and Im a strome M/Fer,

    Oscar i'm good on the extra bag angle now-- stuffed an old bulky nylon/flannel bag into the canvas duffel that will be JP-ported to camp :D I'll bet a beer that that bag is older than Phaedrus :twitch

    Just got the new T-master popped on. A few more fiddles and adjustments and it's sack time. Gonna be hard to sleep :nod

    Travel safe, friends

    I'm throwing all caution to the wind. Final packing going on now. Will leave here by about 3pm and hopefully that will put me in there about 5:30

    See you and hopefully the offer from Dick still stands as I'll be Mr. No Tent.

    Scott -

    I just got back here about 6pm. I got down there just about dark yesterday after leaving Valdosta at about 3. The fire was going when I pulled in at dark and I was sure cold. Buzz and the group there had a good fire going and it felt great. Probably wouldn't have made it if I didn't get the invite by Dick to stay in his RV. That was very nice of him and we had good conversations and he's got a neat pup.

    We were up at about 8:30 I guess and messed around until about 10:30-11:00 and then there seemed to be two ideas on rides. Fast and wet or slower and dry. Some didn't mind the standing water and some did. I was in the latter group. Somehow in the next 20 minutes the two groups merged and I had to go with the fast group then. We had a rather spirited ride :D

    As we were starting to be served, it started to rain. Not hard but we knew it was on it's way. We dashed out to retrieve helmets and jackets and put them on the porch then came back in to finish the meal. Some how I do remember your name being thrown around a good bit. I'll let Mugg and Buzz and others on all of that as a good deal of things led back to long before I met you guys.

    On the way back up 65 to Cliff Lake the rain was getting harder and colder and I made an executive decision that I'd rather not spend a day sitting down there in the rain, so came back and loaded the KLR and bid them all good by and I hit the road a little before 3pm. Took just under 3 hours to make the run back via 65, I-10 and then 221 into Quitman and then Hwy 84 into home. Raining all the way and really coming down the last 30-40 miles. My hands and boots were soaked.

    They all were having a good time when I left and you were sorely missed.

    Maybe we can do one without the rain one day. Take care and heal up man. A few snaps of the going's on this time.
    through the woods to a neat little restaurant for great food. That one ride was worth the 325 mile round trip for me. I love that type of ride.

    Me either... Haven't even left for my hunting trip yet and we even have nice warm and comfortable shooting houses there. :deal

    Rained yesterday afternoon and evening here, rained most of the night here. 80% chance of rain today here... I've been working out in the warm and dry gym :lift Scott's been on the injured list... :kurt Hopefully nobody ends up with pneumonia from this nasty weekend... :sick

    I've been waiting it out. Living on top of some of the best riding south of the north Georgia mountains gives me the opportunity to pick and choose my riding and weather conditions since great riding is less than a mile from my front door. (not an accident) :wink:

    Seriously... I hope y'all have a good time out there and that the injured and/or sick list doesn't grow this weekend. :clap

    $bob$ who is warm and dry and glad of it... :D
