Thinking about it

Has anybody in the WNC attended this race? If so, is it worth the drive?
David :D
I did it twice, and Shane has done it at least twice.... maybe more. I haven't made it
back since I moved up here. Wooglin has done it a couple times, I believe.

It's a ton of fun and a great ride. But it's also 14 hours away.

Shane has expressed interest, I'm interested, I think Wooglin wants to go, and maybe
you are interested....

Maybe we should rent a big assed van and all get together and team drive it. That
would be friggin' sweet - ROAD TRIP !!!!!

Anybody interested? Let's talk.

I'm planning to go again if I can figure out a way to make the drive cheaper. So I'm definitely interested. Even driving my own car and sharing gas would be good.

I just mailed off a registration for the tour. They sell out fast and if I decide to race Sunday instead of tour Saturday I can always sell it.

With 28hrs of driving round trip I'm actually considering riding both days. Its not like I'd be competitive in the race anyhow....

Wooglin,

Just read your post if you have entered the tour and decide to race don't worry about selling your spot just send us and extra 10 for the race and we will move you over as long as there is an open spot in the race. Like you said the tour always sells out before the race and so we always end up with a waiting list for the tour. Just thought I would let you know before you went to too much trouble.

Thanks, that's good to know.

Here's a couple of pics of the OC yin and yang

I guess this is a no go for everyone? The tour is probably full by now and I don't see anyone from NC registered for the race although there's still lots of spots available for it. Don't make me drive out there alone yet again..... :(
