Asheville/WNC ride next week (4/21-23)?

I am taking a few days off next week, Wednesday thru Friday (4/21-23). Anyone up for a ride on one of those days? Looks like the forecast is getting better and better the closer we get to next week.

Any takers??

Where have you been?

Remember me, I met you on a ride with Msheron a couple of years ago, just before he sold his 'Strom.

I'll be in Mobile. AL on Wednesday and hope to be back that night, I'm still trying to find a reasonable flight from AVL that meets my schedule, but that's another story.

I might be able to swing something on Friday.

Hi Norm--

I've been around, just not as much bike time as I'd like.

Yup, I remember... that was a great ride. And I was wondering what happened to msheron. Did he finally give in and get the Connie?

Let's shoot for Friday then. That will work well for me. I'm open for any direction. If you have a ride idea, bring it. I've been thinking about doing the 74A--Hwy 9--SC Hwy 11--276 to either Brevard & back or to Waynesville & back. I'm open to any other thoughts.

Anybody else for Friday?

Mike sold his DL in early 2008.

I think he's been bikeless ever since.

He was into shooting then, I think he's a bit of a hobby surfer.

Jonathan,

It doesn't look good.
I'm writing this now (8:43PM) because I'm at my computer.
I'm at my computer because I have a deadline for a project tomorrow.
I'll likely be here until the wee (no pun intended) hours.

Wish I could join you.

Ya missed a good day, Norm! Looks like the weather man was off again. I wish I could be wrong that often in my job and still get paid!

Anyhow, maybe we'll try it again soon.
