Add me to the list. I made a cabin reservation today. Unless I can recruit someone else from the area it will be just me.

Glad to have you join us! Just so you know it sounds like there will be several Cokers there too so if you have a road wheel you might want to pack that as well. Looks like all the surrounding states are going to be represented so does anyone know of a rider from Arkansas??

Kids?

Is anyone bringing kids (12 y/o+)? My son is bugging me to come. He's a pretty good rider but would be stuck on his 20" street wheel. If this is going to be adults only he can sit it out, no big deal.

I have a 29" but I am not a very fast road rider.

We're all kids. There were several younger riders at the last Arkansas event. They were all great to be around. There should be plenty of time for all styles of riding and speed. An event like this allows the hardware challenged to see and try different ride configurations before their next investment or what to list out for Santa.

Three of us but I'm the only rider.

Are the Texans still coming?

Yes, the last time I talked to them they were still a go, but unsure if it would be 2 or 3 riders. They work at a large bike shop in Dallas and have plenty of contacts so there might even be more... Oh, I'll be the only rider since the other rider I was trying to get said something about blackpowder season or some other nonsense....

Is he afraid of the deer hunters in the woods where we'll be? Or will he be one of them? Do we need orange vests for this particular weekend?

I'm not afraid of the hunters. We'll be long past any hunter after he wipes his eyes and radios back to camp saying "ya'll ain't gonna believe this".

The wife and I are sitting in a hotel room in Blue Springs, Mo. with the plan to ride on Tursday/Friday on the Katy Trail. It's been raining all stinking day. Hopefully the trail will be ridable.

How does Mt. Ida handle fall showers?

No expert on the area, but I would guess that it would take a LOT of rain to make much difference. Thin or non-existent topsoil and some rocky stretches. Of course if it does rain now we all know who cursed us....

As far as hunters - I don't perceive any problem especially if we don't do any crack of dawn riding, and there is no reason to unless its a Coker ride.

I'm planning on bringing my DVD player for evening meditation and reflection. I have KH 1 Tired Guy, and Enter the Dragon, and Defect. If anyone else has any good Uni-vids bring them with you. Gettin' close.
