Wait, seems like I made almost his same trip about 2 weeks ago, going to Kentucky..

Oh, I turned the job down, it would have involved a massive paycut...

Note to future employers...

Don't offer a job, then figure out you can't afford me.....

So I am still stuck in miss a hippy... Yes I spelled it like that on purpose..

If 49 is coming, I've got to try for sure. It would be cool to ride down with the Canadians. I wonder if RatMan will be able to make it. Only 470 miles from me. That was a surprise. I'm coming.

Might have to ride slower for Ratman to keep up, but we could do that. Couldn't we, boys? ;D

 ok that is 1789.2 kms converted to 1111.7877 miles.....one way........so do that in about 18 hours non stop, or do a 10 hour ride with a night to sleep and then a 8 hour day, so latest I could leave would be the 15th at 0600 here and head out, return trip would be at a nice easy ride.....

Now why would that be?  I can ride at the speed limit too, and why rush......relax enjoy life....

but it depends I might be having a major change in life style this spring and this might fit right in with the plans......some thing to plan for ....

Driftingirl, never too far if you leave enough time to rest......

I'd like to go, but I probably won't know until last minute if I can get off from work.

To: ALL

I don't know if are planning on coming to Helen GA next July for DI 2013 or not but I just wanted to let you know that the dead line for the $59 a night that the VDOG is getting at the hotel ends on Dec 31. So if you plan to attend Please call the Hofbrau River Front Hotel
They are holding 20 rooms at this price until Dec 31 the then price goes up to $89 a night, the hotel only has 38 rooms and so far we only have reservations for 10 of the 20 rooms.

Would like to get there but has anyone checked this place out? Website link is dead, rated as a 1 -2 star on most sites, reviews are all very poor. A little concerned here

Know  exactly where that is!  Used to run a micro sprint over that way...have to keep in touch as it gets closer...I think Tom and I are the only drifters over this way.....looks like one up in Grand Rapids and a few down by Indy....would be neat if we could gather 6 or so of us up....
