My buddies in Tampa are leaving tonite at midnight. It is already a zoo in the TB area since the declaration earlier today. Since they ordered the evac for TB, traffic north and out of the state starting tomorrow will be a HUGE BUMMER. I75 will turn into a parking lot with all of the south Florida folks heading out. Hope he gets his property taken care of and can get out easily. Once he hits Ga, should be normal drive up.

he would head back east to Coral Springs after buttoning up Cape Coral Tuesday. Typically this late of the year its coming from South and heads up the west side, unlike the summer hurricane season its coming from Africa. They didn't get jack this year, till now. 30 years down there he's been pretty lucky knock on wood. He's heading to Maryland early Saturday unless something went bad at Cape Coral.

I normally go down there in February for a week, break from cold and camp and ride out at Croom the last few years. Last year we met half way at Durhamtown for the week. This time he's heading up

yeah rain can be a bummer but the ride goes on! Understand if you guys bail-I packed all my rain gear last night and it is gonna be a little chilly too! Think I'll bring the propane firepit to sit under the awning and watch the rain in the evenings or we'll just hang out in the RV!

Now we just gotta hope that the Gov doesn't shutdown Friday, if that were to happen, that could impact the event too! Dang, rain and Gov incompetent BS!

No, it can effect some of the federal land we traverse but I was told we didn't even go after permits this year, so Fed shutdown shouldn't effect us. A few years back it DID cause us to cancel as the feds shut down the access. Weather and the fact that Va. just declared emergency, that might impact it. We should know soon if it will canx.

Yeah, VA declared emargency.
The WATR member email list sounds like refunds will be sent out tonight automatically through eventbrite. FWIW, WATR is the group that hosts the event for those that don't know.

So the event was cancelled and I got my refund, but I also still have the GPX files they sent (I mean I can't really send them back :think: ). Now I'm thinking of riding there this weekend. Anybody knows if the whole thing is on public roads or they open up certain parts of the route specifically for the S500 event? Can you ride the same roads any day of the year?

Some of the forest service roads are closed after this event. You should be able to do a good chunk of the route still, but there should be some closed gates now.
