2. friday morning will be breakfast at the sterling drive followed by fridays ride (route will be posted when i make one)
3. after the ride will be the cookout at davy and giving out door prizes donated by generous sponsors.

We got the last single available when I called, room #6...
Well I appreciate the alphabetization, but corresponding numbers in front of each would be a nice addition as well.. You know.. 1, 2, 3, ect... That way I don't have to count up how many people are coming
you can count them like 1..2...3.. and so forth. we know you can do it.:mosh:
And take off your shoes and socks beforehand, so you don't lose your place and have to start all over again....
How about some wedding bells or cans being pulled by the bike?

Thinking purple

I may be ending up solo in a room with a king size bed(don't get no bright ideas, that's why I used the serious thread)
Solo???...Thought she was riding with you Gene...
Jenny and I are also pumped up for this...Got a room at the Red Roof Inn/grove City for the 3rd, and hoping to hit up Iron Pony while in the area, then catch the fireworks in Columbus that night....
Ok, I am in. Bill and Beriah, you guys want to meet up going to chillicothe out of columbus?

Sure thing, works for me....
It's too bad we don't have C B's like the old days. We could have us a convoy!!!!

Badjuan :patriot:
Man you couldn't pay me to install a CB on my bike!!...Heard enough "CB Rambo" :icon_bs: when I drove truck for a living...

So looks like I will be at the hotel at 8:30ish
Hotel??...You mean where we're staying at??...
One thread says we meet up at BP station by the motel, another saying at the motel...Can you guys make up my mind for me??
Ok Bill, I won't try and confuse this any longer. Was going to meet you at YOUR hotel (red roof) then go to chillicothe to meet up with the others. Either way its all good.

As I sit here thinking about it, maybe the gas station Beriah mentioned would be better...Jen and I can meet you guys there and get our morning caffiene (fancy coffee/whatever for her, Coke Zero for me) fix going on while waiting for ya....

Let's just plan on Bob Evans. They were good to us last year so let's reward them for their customer focus. Besides, we know where it is :) If there is any problem with the Bob Evans, the Applebees next door and the Fat Patty's on the other side of the highway are options. So let's plan on noon, Thursday at the Bob Evans.


Oh goodie, another Bob Evans.....:banghead: Two years ago on the WV ride, both Bob Evans we went to had some of the worst service on the planet...Maybe I'll just grab a danish and a Coke Zero at a gas station and hang out with the bikes....
I'm not starving...Never eat breakfast, and usually don't eat lunch either...
You guys just go wherever you want, and we'll call an audible at that time...Like I said already, we don't usually eat until later in the day anyways....
Probably would work better to [ut the Prius on a trailer and pull it with the
