    Yes, thanks for setting this up. I don’t mind a little rain but this looks like it might be a toad strangler.

    BAndres27, Glad you enjoyed the Calhoun ride! Challenge anyone to count the curves
    on the section from rt 96 back to GoldenEagle! That's a twisty 40 miles!!

    I’d sure like to get together some weekend and ride! It may be a few weeks before we can enter a restaurant now.
