Aye, weather looks great. You guys starting in Sturbridge or Wellesley? I'm really looking forward to this year's ride.

Hopefully there will be no tent mishaps in Bourne like last year.

No, no, not to worry. The problem was with the food tent last year, but it was only after gale force winds blew in with some weather from Buzzards bay. A gust lifted the tent up over the top of one of the intermediate size poles and the pole fell onto the hot dog table and bent it in two. They closed down the whole food tent for about an hour. Fortunately for me it was later in the afternoon (3 ish) and I had been there for several hours, eaten my fill, and was watching the whole thing unfold from the dorm window. Felt bad for the people who were just arriving, because they needed that food the most at that point.

Anyway, the weather forecast so far looks as good as it ever has *knocks lots of wood*!

Good luck this weekend to all!
I was one of the unfortunates who arrived in Bourne just as the food tent went down last year. The last three or four miles was a b*@ch with the storm that blew in.

Anyway, keep the rubber side down, and have a great ride!

Starting in Sturbridge. I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas at this point - can't wait! No need to worry about anything at this point. Just get yourself there with your gear and you'll be fine. These folks have about as good a logistics crew as you could hope for. Leave early, ride hard, get done early, have a few Harpoons! zerotopanmass - you're in for a real treat!

Registering tomorrow around 4 pm. First beer's on me

"Ladies tee" - That's funny!

Careful on the roads out there tomorrow morning, looks like they're going to be pretty wet.

I'm not all that excited about leaving a half hour earlier this year.
