    Yeah, I fell while loading the bikes and broke my right wrist. I slipped on a pine straw covered root. Thanks to all those who helped me get every thing loaded up. I was not fun driving the motorhome back to the barn. Hopefully should be riding in 8 weeks.

    I broke my wrist and a month later left on the Souther Dual Sport loop. Keep the faith, you'll heal up quick!

    Last Call!

    Tomcat looked up Riding Again and he is from St Aug area. He may have hurricane issues and not thinking about tee shirts...
    I will give him some time to respond... If anyone know him give him a heads up.

    Jeff, I dont know about the other items but those mini yetis looks like the guys next to me from Mid Florida. Coach and Flacrusher? you guys missing any electronics?

    RTIC "Mini Yetis" accounted for but after drinking from them for (3) nights, it may have been better if I forgot them somewhere! Then again, they're in the Hauler ready for the Polar Bear.

    Also, Coach was telling me that he's been making motorcycle noises while riding his mountain bike. He says that something is wrong with it... When he twists the grip, it doesn't go anywhere:rofl

    WOW! I had to go IL and IA this week so this is the first I have been able to comment on the Turkey Trot... WOW! I figured it would be a good time but my expectations were far exceeded. Awesome riding and camping in one of the most beautiful forests in the South. Great conversations, food, and drinks around a welcoming community fire. I haven't experienced this level of fellowship since I left my NY motocross/woods riders 15 years ago. Thank You Vico1 for organizing this event and the countless others that chipped in to provide all the amenities. I am humbled by the PAR and extended ADV community who are some of the coolest, friendliest, like minded people I have ever met. Thanks to ALL and did I say WOW! Cant stop smiling...

    That's what I like to hear. Seems like everyone enjoyed the Trot as much as I did.
