More than a case of cold homebrew. I am going to mix them up, so you get what you get. Porter, Old Ale or Scotch Ale. All very potent so imbibe at your own risk, but tasty!

Lots of really big hills. Last year I think 4 or 5 category 4 climbs over 200k. This year I expect much of the same. I can share my Garmin for the 200 if you like?

Count us in for sure. Likely all of us, but kids get older, so maybe just Mary and I. I will bring a collection of beer (maybe even some of my homebrew if you like heavy ales).

Looking forward...
