    Default This saturday rte 3-2-2019

    We have realized that one RTE a month may not be enough. This Saturday, we are going to the Smokee Hollow Bar-b-Que at 14664 Hwy 13N Eldridge, Alabama.

    This is on Hwy 13 I believe about 10 miles south of the Eldridge Children's Home. This is a " out in the country kind of place " but is suppose to be pretty good. We plan to arrive to eat by 11:30. If you can make it, please respond so I can do a head count. We hope to see ya'll Saturday. Paul & Gail.

    looks like fun. I hope to make it Paul but at this point I am a "definite maybe". We are flooded at the house...like 5' deep in the yard. My bikes are up high and dry in the garage but I have to go across the yard to get out. It would be similar to going around the Darien Gap to get out now. I would have to lad a boat and sail to dry land on the other side!

    Vance, I assume the water is starting to go down. I hope you can make the RTE, if not we'll see you next time. Stay dry. Paul & Gail

    K & P sure hope to be there. What with the inheritance of Pops, life is much more complicated in 2019 than in 2018...

    Regardez Vous, P&K

    Paul & Gail, the water has receded and I have a driveway again! (albeit a little muddy) I am planning to join you all...Mari will be busy working on some sort of rally stuff or something so she will not be there. I have polled my two riding brothers to see if they can make it but don't have confirmation from them as of this moment. But I hope to crank up a bike and see you guys there!

    I woke up to a steady rain this morning and went back to bed. Hope the weather didn't hinder y'all from BHM to have a good time.

    T'was a terrific R2E! Thanks for organizing, Paul et Gail!

    Wondering what happened to the Vance'ster (AWOL Apparently!)....

    It was a chilly ride, But then it's all relative, Isn't it? Not like up thar in Maryland...

    Those in the know, implied there might be a "2nd Sat" R2E coming soon to all y'all.

    Ciao, P&K in Huntsville.

    Well, the rain got me too. I left home and rode 40 miles to brother Rob's house arriving in the pouring rain and 42*....We waited 30 minutes and it never slacked up....so I booked him home (the opposite direction)! Well, maybe next time!
