The rider packs are out. The route is 85 miles or 113 with all options. I probably need to refuel at lunch. Bruce - since we are so close to the secret campsite, are you planning on going back at lunch for fuel?
Yeah, we did that last year. I would push for an earlier start. First bikes out at 0700 and they are doing breakfast at the start this year. Also we got behind last year when folks had issues on the options and had to skip some sections. Early also beats the heat and possible rain.


We can discuss Saturday PM.

I like the early start idea. Cooler riding and gives us time for the options.

If your getting there at 0630 I'd better bring extra coffee.

If rut row says it’s 113 miles that means it’s like 500 miles by our last trips calculations... better bring an oil change kit! Got my rider pack yesterday and printed the roll charts. Is anyone else riding up? I’m gonna ride my dr650 up that morning from Gaithersburg...
