    Hey Jim,

    There are good eateries along the way. Look in your ABEES guide for information. Restaurants and POIs are listed by towns.

    Please include this old codger. I've missed old friends too long and this would be fun. Hope I remember how to pack for 3 days

    Hey John, we talked about this some this weekend. A couple options are in the air at this point. To spend three days that would be two nights out....but Mike Scott mentioned he would like to go but would prefer the starting point being in Mobile. Starting there might make it easier to time the ferry crossing but that would mean those of us form central and north commuting down to and from the Mobile starting point...and that might add one more night to it.

    My available times are the first and second weekends in April. I guess we need a headcount of who would be in. The first weekend is Easter so to be home by Saturday afternoon we would have to start the ride on Thursday and that means leaving Wednesday if we start in Mobile.

    So let's see who is on on that time frame. If those weekends are not suitable ya'll feel free to work what is best for the group. Bob is working on cleaning up the routes a bit but we will also have to lay out the stopping points based on the total time we are taking. Got a little route work to do!

    I might still be game even with the Mobile start point. For me it would be ideal that I be home Sunday opposed to Saturday so I would burn one less vacation day. So that would mean Easter weekend is out. However plan for the rest of the group and if I can make it I will.

    Vance, I have been following this thread and am excited about the ride. I suspect there are other lurkers who may also be interested. This could become a well-attended event so the extended time frame may be necessary if there are more than just a few riders. The more riders; the more fun but it is also more difficult to maintain a schedule.

    I also like the new idea of starting from Mobile.

    I am in for either of the first two weekends in April. Thanks for planning this,


    David

    Great David! Glad you are interested. Lets wait a couple days and let everybody throw their name in and we'll take it to the next planning stage!

    I'm ok with start/end at Mobile. The first weekend of April is better for me...might have a conflict April 6,7,8.
    Whatever the group works out, I'll try and make it work.
    Thanks jb
