I should have been there too

According to my calculations, I would be pulling in about 1.5 ours after David. The problem is I had to cancel vacation plans to attend a school this week. Just found out Friday as a result of the recent tragedy the school has been cancelled. Word from the office is "why don't you go ahead with your vacation plans?" Arrrrggghhh

Hope you guys have the time of your lives:)

I wish I could but I didn't have time to get everything in order to make it up and back in the time frame available to me. If I had only found out Wed or Thursday I think I could have pulled it off. How long did it take Thump to get there?

I am jealous of each and every one of the 166 people that are going. Okie, when you get there please remind Thump of what he has to look forward to next year :D Maybe I can hop in the back of Julius Pleaser's truck and just sort of join in on the crowd when I get there?:think

Call from Thump...
He's all setup, sitting by a nice fire and feeling great.
He says "hey, did you know there is a train that goes by?"
I say "train"?
;)

LOL @ Okie

I pulled into Casey at 2 am on Saturday morning last year. When I got out of the truck to stretch, I could hear faint mutterings from some of the nearby tents. I felt kinda bad about arriving so late and waking everyone up.

I got back in my truck, and after an hour on the cell phone with my soon-to-be ex-wife, I nodded off to sleep.

About 10 minutes later, I was jolted awake by the sound of a train passing by--20 feet behind me. :scream:

talk about initiative, I'm skipping out on my statistics midterm (scheduled for friday) to attend, the prof. was kind enough to let me take it on monday of the week after :)

I'm getting antsy, bike's ready and I've got most of my riding gear washed, everyone should feel special that I thought to wash my gear before I came, it's been laying in the shop in a pile since my last ride a month ago :scream:
