My pleasure, Al. It sounds like great fun. Let's hope the weather is good and some more of our crew signs up.

Alright. I'm in, too. Even if it does mean hitting the road by 5:30 am, and I'm not a morning person. :)

Attaboy Bob. I'll see you at Howard Park. Too bad it's too early for souvlaki down at the Sponge Docks.

You guys missed a really great ride. Rode boonie roads all the way across the state with a cue sheet that looks a lot like a bicycle tour sheet. Lots of hills, shade and turns every 2-3 miles or so. We went through a lot of Lou's Tarpon Springs ride, Mike's San Antonio ride, Yahala, Howey in the Hills, some really cool areas around Deland and on to Daytona.

Bob was at Howard Park bright and early and we had a great time, a nice smoked chopped pork plate for lunch and a great ride. Out of the 80 turns or so, I missed two of them but Bob saw the error of my ways and turned around very quickly.

You guys ought to make time to do that ride next year. The organizers and riders were very cool.

Great job Al!

Yeah, it was a real good ride. I went to school at Embry-Riddle in Daytona, so I know all of those roads pretty well. I could have done more to navigate after we reached 40, if only I could have flipped over the route sheet or had a map pocket big enough for the full width of paper. Maybe I'll get a roll chart holder before next year. :)
