    Did as I had said, kickstand up @ 7:45. Temp. was 72. Rode the local County Roads for a while, arrived home about 10:00. 88F by then. Now my outdoor temp monitor sez 99F. Thinking Sunday kickstand up @ 6:00? Waking up Deer?

    I can tell how cheap you are! You could find a better motel than that. Then, making the Dog do the driving!
    Have a great time, it sure has a great start!

    vfrpilot, I was foolish enough to show miz the pics of your vacation. Came home to find a 10 week old Female Beagle in the house. Thank doG for the white tip on her tail, to keep giving me a " I am Here" heads up.

    I wish I could make it, but my next two weekends I am working. It's like this summer never happened. Usually by now I've put about 9 or 10k miles on the bikes, this year I've put less than 1k!!

    Covering both threads:
    I say, let's go for it! There is always a reason to not. Rain is a small chance in the afternoon with me being on the more likely side at this time. Pizza is ok, I prefer a bar and grill type location; one that serves both outside and inside too satisfy . There were a couple offering on the last attempt to meet. You guys take a look and also give time! It is 100 mi for me. Solo, as well as the Champaign gang, is close to the same. So 11 am - 2 pm is wide open. Rain forcast is in the 1-2 range at this time. I plan to stop in at Hall's, if at all possible.

    If it wasn't for the damn Covid crap, looks like Publichouse would have opened at 11:00 on Saturdays but their Facebook page says 4:00 now. Unless someone wants to call tonight to confirm, it's out. That would have been my preference, love to try craft beers.:beer

    The Alibi is my second choice :dukegirl
