    If the stars align, I should be back home from making a run to Dallas by Thursday morning . I may try and meet up with you guys Friday morning at Windrock just ride in from home, only takes me about an hour by trail to be at Caryville Flats overlook, so if @Windrock1000 can designate a trail intersection and time will meet up with the caravan.

    I have a meeting in KC this Friday. Depending on timing and if @Ragnar406 is up for a long road trip we could ***maybe*** make coalmont Saturday. I’d be a cracked out freak on monsters to drive through the night. I’d also need to make sure our gooseneck is empty right now....

    Just talked to my social calendar keeper. She is going to allow me to have my “big boy pants” on Friday so I’ll be there unless I end up with a job interview.

    Now, she may come with me
    In which case I won’t be the one actually wearing said pants ...

    Yeah, just looked and it’s changing for the worse with the weather guessers saying temps dropping through the day ...

    Keep us up to date please. I get to drive I-40 through the mountains each way on Friday. Not a lot of fun in snow towing ...

    That's normally true.
    I watched the news this morning and his tune has not changed except it's getting worse. Calling for rain the rest of the week picking up on Friday morning into and thru the weekend. Nothing more miserable than being wet all all day long and were looking at two days in a row. From personal experience I can tell you Coalmont will be all but impossible to ride with the high water. It's been raining here for almost 10 days on and off and we got 3-4 inches of rain in that time period with another 1.5-2 inches coming the rest of the week. I know Tiger is committed to coming to Mary's Ridge and that's fine, we can ride here in between downpours and warm up in the garage, but we may want to look at moving this weekend ride to a more pleasant one. Glocks coming from Missouri, Craig from S. Georgia, (bless his heart) and others from SC, etc. Again, those that were going to stay here this coming weekend are welcome to continue but it will be hit and miss I'm afraid. What say you boys?

    I'm probably going to pass. This would be my wife and sons "first" ride other than around here. We are heading to the Mulberry ride at the beginning of March.
