We can count on you for stellar accomodations again, right? ha

You could do the 300k and ride back with me

In any event, I can get anyone up there who wants to ride with me and Dawn, but I'm not coming back till Sunday even if I wimp out and join you all in the 200k.

$10,000 to 10th place.

Not trying to steal the thread, just throwing out alternatives if this ride is closed.

I am going up solo the night before as the family can't do the Dells (like we normally do) with kids events. I can carpool with you Aham (we can get two bikes in the back of my car or I think I have a rack if necessary), and where should I stay?

I'll take you up with me and the minivan. There better be no f'n maintenance at work on that day or I'm going to throw a fit and go into a seizure.

Aham, give me a call. Have a room at the Quality Inn Mineral Point. I PM'd my cell. Better yet, show up for the Spin Doctor's ride tomorrow and we can discuss it there. Maybe we can shame Psi into doing an even 100.
