    my buddy Jack's house is sort of being threatened by the Waldo Canyon fire near Colorado Springs. his house is about a mile northwest of the Rte 87 marker http://www.inciweb.org/incident/2929/

    hope this is over before he is to leave for ABQ.

    When we are all starving during fall and winter because you didn't can enough food, then you'll be rethinking this

    Great minds think a like.

    Jarlie, wishing you a rain storm.

    Looks like you just about made Knoxville. Good deal!

    Good luck. I'm hoping I can get down to Wawa Fri to see everyone off properly, but don't wait for me :)

    Doing the CDR reverse of you guys, (going n to s) on Aug 7th. Just finished reading all 122 thread pages over the last couple of days. Thanks for all the info I've gained. It's all in a lengthy word doc am sending to our other riders. Hope you have a great trip.

    Looks like the new zumo 350 doesn't like tracks:huh. I've spent the last couple of hours figuring this out:cry. Just finished creating routes from the tracks using the "Dirt Biking" activity in Base Camp. Hope it works.

    Jack is now under mandatory evacuation. he could see the flames from his house. Motorcycles are in the garage so he may not be riding for a while.

    Well I guess we won't have to worry about closures due to the race then. I looked last night and it appears we can still get there...but a week could change a lot.

    How is Jack and did he evacuate? I hope all is well!!

    Rte 24 is closed in the vicinity of the PP entrance road

    Jack is at a friend's house - as best I can tell the fire is about two miles from his home.
