Yeah. It's just too bad she's so hard on the eyes.

Heh. Can you recap the 8/8/5 deal on the shrimp boil? I'd really like
to try that at home.

Had to look it up. I agree. Always a pleasure.

It was nice to meet/ride with you too. I realized on the way home that
I forgot to ride the KDX. My neighbors have a couple - maybe I'll go
over there and bum a ride. I sure miss that bike.
I think most of the effort I expended was on the XR. Friday really
wore me out in the heat. The trials bike stuff is much less demanding
for me. Could have something to do with the 110 pound difference in

At least he used a plate...

It was good that someone was pushing us to get going. If not, we may
have missed riding entirely on Sunday.

Note to self: Ocean bad. Riding good.

Never mind all that. I can't forget the whole dutch oven thing.

Indeed. I need to get out and visit/ride with you folks more often.

Ditto. That was the first time I've gone trail/play riding with
someone else on a trials bike. I gotta convince someone local to get
one. That was a good time. I wish Henry had the section idea sooner,
as that was a lot of fun too.
Thanks for getting the ball rolling on this whole event. Thanks to KW
for all of his food prep/organizational efforts too. Nothing beats
just showing up and having a great time.
Now if you could do something about the 9 hour drive and torrential
rain, we'd really be cooking!

I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. I like riding Brushy, but the people
made this one great.

Drive faster and think about doing the trip again this fall. I'm
going to try and do an Arkansas trip at some point this fall as well.

I had to look it up too.
I would have bet my GasGas that it was a variant of LAGNAF. Silly me.
