My goal would be to travel to races in this G280 with a 3600 mile range cruising at Mach .8.
Only if Sarah is the pilot. I hate flying.
It looks like I'll only be going if I am "forced to retire" before then as my wife's running race is a week before the cycling events. 1-1/2 weeks in Cleveland, not counting transit, won't work if I'm working. If I'm not...
However, I am 99% sure we'll do the Huntsman Games in October 2013.
Last year the Ohio State Masters Road Race Championships would have been the weekend before this year's NSG. Once it's posted I'll let you guys know about it. I plan to take the week of the NSG off, if I'm still working my 3 day a week job.
I plan to be at VOS.
Okay, I'm registered now, for all 4 events - just need to sort out how I'm getting there, with my bikes. Maybe I'll stand on the freeway with my bikes and my thumb out for when Ex blasts past.
Cleave? Any update for you?
Discounted registration ends 1/31.
SWA to Cleveland Hopkins. $50 for a bike case each way.
Great point. Are you taking two bikes plus race / training wheels?
That's a lot to trust to airline baggage handlers...
World Masters Games in Torino, Italy, but they are too close to when our youngest is starting college.
Right now our plan is to do the Huntsman World Senior Games. They have a 40 Km TT, hillclimb TT, criterium, and road race. During the same week they have a number of road (running) races from which my wife can choose. I guess I'll start a separate thread for the Huntsman Games.
I know that some people ship at least one bike and some of their gear via FedEx or UPS. They usually designate a specific LBS to receive the bikes and gear.
I thought that I posted this before but I must not have. You can always ship your bikes to my house via UPS or FedEx then assemble them once you arrive.
I may do that, Jet, if I don't drive.
I am going to discuss this with Mrs. Shovel and decide by the end of the month. No way I am going to pay a higher rate. If I go I will be driving and staying at a hotel. The only events I will be doing are the 20K and 40K.
Certainly hope you decide to go for it, Shovel.
He'll be there if I have to swing by and pick him up.
Ill be sure to clean up the Jungle Room for EX and put clean linens on the beds for the rest of you guys. OK,... my wife will.
I'm in. 20K and 40K. I'll be driving out and back. I may have spawn #2 with me. Mrs. Shovel may fly out for the races and the drive back. She has to work on Friday.
Great to hear, Shovel. I'm going to focus my training on the TT's, and will do all I can to support you in the 20K and 40K.
