Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

We have time to think of the ones we love while the miles roll away, the only time that seems too short is the time that we get to play"
Why yes , I think I've been there.

Leaving early AM mananna.
Staying to a stateside route.. the 50 clicks over impound your bike scares the crap outta me.
Homeboy staying stateside..
I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

Had a most excellent time3. Thanks for all the work Fred, Ed, Tom and Art. Plus an above and beyond thanks to Grace (owns Ed) who opened her house to us all on Wednesday as well as their son Josh who grilled our food, then ran Taxi service to get us home. There is a taxi story to be told sometime.
Who do I thank for the splendid weather we were blessed with?
Bad decisions make for good stories.

I could not resist one more ride through Smuggler's Gap, then I crossed Lake Champlain on the islands and poked around the Adirondacks most of the day. Got a little light rain before noon, but dry all afternoon.
While crossing the lake I got behind a very long line of assorted bikes all going exactly the speed limit. As I was looking them over and calculating a plan to divide and conquer I realized that many of them had flags on their bikes. Patriot Guards. So I fell in at the back and followed them to the state line.
I had a great time, as I always do when I get to spend time riding and socializing with you guys. And now it feels good to be home.
Thanks to Fred (not ED) and Ed (not Fred) and everyone else who helped pull this thing together.

After 400+ miles yesterday (including another scoot through Smuggler's Gap because ... well ... because it wasn't really on the way but what the hell, right?) and 400+ boring slab miles today (including some heavy damn rain at the NY / PA border) we made 'er home safe and sound.
We had an awesome time, even though Bust was there. It was great seeing old friends again and making new ones. It was especially great for me to meet Kevin 3 times. I guess beer will do that.
Thanks to Ed and Fred and EVERYone involved in the cat-herding that is organizing any event. Hats off, guys - you done GREAT!
For everyone still on the road - ride safe.

Tom . . . a very special thank you for kicking this off back in 2008 . . .who would have ever thought!
