Headed that way after work loaded up and sitting on go will have a fire at Camp Tiger tonight that's for sure :D

Looking forward to seeing everybody tomorrow as for the boys down south a lot of them have Buggys and very seldom get to use them, I predict it will be 50-50 going up the North paved trails today. Looks like both sides of HWY 60 is going to be crowded hope everyone is safe and has fun the weather looks to be awesome

Not really south Florida.. Well, considering I work in Pompano, I guess. I was supposed to be
off today and headed to Mack, but that didn't happen. :evil:

I will be hauling butt up the Turnpike after work to Ft. Pierce, jump in my other truck that is already hooked & loaded and be rolling into the motel hopefully about 8:00 pm tonight. See y'all there. You going to be around this weekend Diggin? I'll be riding with JP again.

Yep. It truly was a last second turn around; I had already resigned myself to not going this year. My mother-in-law wanted to come spend time this weekend with the grandkids so all of us adults are heading up to the Freedom Ride and leaving Granny with the kiddies. Supposed to meet up with JP, Steve Reid, Elevator Guy and our buddy Nick from Withlacoochee area, DDSBC and you! ;) I think skinnypockets will be out there as well as quite a few others I've gotten to know. We're staying at River Ranch in the RV park.
