unless something weird happens, I'm planning on heading west next summer to have a few drinks with the folks out west and ride those beautiful mountains. the straight line from here to there is 1939 miles via slab I-64 to I-70 at St Louie to US 24 to 115 to 50 to 550. but, I'm thinking of leaving the weekend before and taking the long way there. And then hauling ass back on the slab route. I'm just curious about those other easterner's thinking about going. I know plans change and weird shit crops up, especially planning this far out. Who on this side of the Mississippi is seriously thinking about going?
