Unfortunately, we won't be able to make it next weekend. Have to put a new roof on the house. Have a wonderful time everyone.

Looks like a damp ride down for me Brian, but I have to get some miles on the bike some how.

When are you leaving Terry?  I'm rolling out Friday morning, so I am hoping that Al is firmly planted North of the border by that time!

East of Columbus, waiting for Mike and Chuck to arrive at the designated meeting spot.

 As I filled with gas I noticed my trailer safety chains had somehow came unhooked from the hitch, pulling the flat five trailer connector out with it and ground down the male connector, so I have no trailer lights.

 I need to find a place that sells a flat 5 male connector and then splice it in

Saw that, Gary and there’s one close to the motel where we are staying at in Athens OH tonight. Thanks.

Minor setback

While the Bride and myself cannot be there we hope we can be there for simple things like that.  Hope you find one.

 

With luck tomorrow we (myself) are going to try to see if we can ride.  The Wing is calling but so is old age.

 

Hope your trip goes better the rest of the way.  Always a place for you to stay here if you are in the area.

Do you want me to pack my soldering kit and some shrink wrap??  I can!

 

As far as weather goes.....  The first year we did this event, it was suppose to rain every day of the event......  we never seen a drop.  2 years ago it was just going to be over cast, rained about every second we were there, very hard at times.   Your in the mountains so you never know......  But, like Dusty said, we have the pavilion, we'll be fine!!

Ken If you can't find one at a auto parts place look

for a boat dealer a lot of the bigger boat trailers have

the flat 5 connectors.

Ken:  I have a 5 pin Male side if you need it.  It's new, but for some eason only has about a foot or so of wire on it........  Either they come that way or I needed wire one day a while back.......  Who knows with me.  I'll throw it in with the soldering stuff so it will be there if you need it.

 

Weather:  Again, your in the mountains, hard to say but for the most part, the rain chances for the most part of the weekend are in the 5% to 20% range.  There are a few times that it reaches 75% for a one hour period.  I know Fri between 6 and 7 pm is one of those hours so plan your ride accordingly, But you should all be there.  I'll plan dinner for 6PM.

Put your tent down next to the babbling brook.  Just might get it washed out in the middle of the night.  Estella wishes we were there.

That would be fantastic John, as I have been unable to find just the male section and yes, they only come with an 18 " tail
