    A friend just let me know that the twisty bit of road east of Vernon, between Cherryville and the Needles to Faquier ferry is being seal coated. Long waits followed by a tedious parade behind a pilot car await you at this time.

    Lots of loose gravel and stones on the road for the next few weeks too!

    It's a "Destination Highway" so I thought I'd pass the info on in case this highway is on someone's itinerary for the weekend.

    Hello All,
    As per title Leaving August 3rd. Should I change my route now? Anyone wanting to ride? Going by myself and could always use a wingman?

    I would think that they should be done by Aug 3, there should be some linkage out there somewhere that would detail thier progress.

    Did your buddy tell you how long this chip seal is? I'm going through there this weekend [Friday] and don't relish the thought of that kind of crap on the roads, with the kind of heat they are predicting.
    Ciao, Steve G.
