    Nothing set in stone yet, but I'm thinking we can meet at the gas station in Ontario, just a few miles north of Wildcat. That way everybody can be gassed up and ready to ride. How does 9:30am sound? If we have a good size group we may bust into 2 smaller groups. We'll see how it goes.

    I'm riding up from Grayslake, IL. Looks like a 3.5 hour ride to get to Ontario. Manageable. :1drink
    Camping ay Wildcat is available, yet showers are not until after May 15th annually. I may look for a cheap motel (sans bed bugs).

    I have to work Friday night, so I will just ride up to meet you guys in the morning. Saturday night I'm thinking about finding a motel. I will take my sleeping bag liner to help fight off the bed bugs!:rofl

    Looks like I will be able to make the SC run but only for Sunday. That wasn't easy either finding a sitter for the kids for Sunday. I plan to leave Plainfield, IL around 8 am headed out towards I-39. If anyone is headed that direction around the same time let me know so we can meet up along the way. Jerry, should I look for chrome or are you riding the koolaide bike up?:D

    I'm still planning on camping at Wildcat Fri. night but will be at Gansers Motel in Sauk City on Sat. night. BTW, I had to reserve a camp spot for two nights so my spot will be vacant on Sat. night if anyone is interested. Weather looks pretty good Sat. and Sun!

    I think they are meeting at 930 am Saturday morning for some TWAT fun(Yes I just said that):lol3. Sunday will be just heading to the Crud run from what I gather. I would be meeting up Saturday but I had a heck of a time finding a sitter for Sunday alone.:cry If you want to ride up Sunday morning shoot me a PM.

    If ya wanna ride the TWAT Sat. we are meeting in Ontario at the cafe between 9:00 and 9:30. We will ride the TWAT down to Cassville. Some are camping, but I'm a pussy so I will be moteling it (I like hot showers and warm beds). Then Sunday we will meet at the BP in Cassville between 9:00 and 9:30 and ride to Leland for the Crud.

    If the weather is nice and I get Saturday off, I may ride down there for the full experience. Just went to Leland about 5 years ago.

    Meet in Ontario Saturday morning? I can't make it that early. I have to leave Saturday morning 200 miles away.

    I will call you guys (Have Josh's #) Saturday night sometime. I could meet you in Cassville and ride across with you. It wouldn't be that big a deal for me to take 52 over to the big river then head North. Sure beats slabbing it to Mad Town. The ride from Cassville East should be a nice one. I would need to leave before sun up to make that happen but I think it's doable. Thoughts?

    Would love to join for the TWAT fun, I'm just a hop, skip and a jump from Ontario but already have a previous commitment on Saturday. :pissed

    Will certainly be at Leland on Sunday though.

    If ya need a little more time to make it to Cassville, I'm sure we could make a little time for ya. It's 112 miles to Leland so we can make it in a lil less than 3 hours.

    Just google TWAT on your work computer. I don't see any issues with that at all.

    Nice, thanks! Clint will be on a ninja 1000 so we just might have to pass and ride elsewhere.

    So, can I get a roll call here? Just a simple 'IN' and when you plan to meet the group. I have quite a few people to link up with along the way and I don't want to A: leave someone behind, or B: wait for someone who's not showing.

    Looks like the weather's clearing up... :clap
