Feels damn cold. I swear it was less than a week ago I went to bed with the windows open and temp in the room reading 75* with 60% RH and briefly considered uncovering the AC unit and turning it on.

BTW, I'm in!

Hope the weather cooperates for this for you guys....one of my favorite rides of all times, with Eddie there at the start at the Cracker Barrel, with all the bikes & friends!

Pat, I might just do that depending on the weather because I will be up there that weekend...the 23rd is the day before Christmas Eve, with Christmas being on a Monday this year. Any nasty weather I'd be in trouble though, cause I wouldn't want to total my second Z3, that's for sure!

Re: Winter Solstice 2017 Anyone?

How about a stop at Country Crust Bakery to grab their awesome pretzel bread sandwiches for lunch? We could hit it first and then bring the food to Serpent Mound. Just an idea.

Re: Winter Solstice 2017 Anyone?

I went ahead and created an event in the Facebook Group. Let's make sure the details are correct. Saturday December 23rd. Kickstands up at 11AM at Cracker Barrel in Milford?

Yes I believe that's been the standing plan in the past no sense to change it? Kickstands up at 10 am? Be there early if eating right? Show up with a full tank of Fuel there is a UDF on the way in!

Re: Winter Solstice 2017 Anyone?

Dave: Just a heads up. Previous years--at least 2016, which is the only year I checked--the meet-up was set at 10 AM with kickstands up at 11. Prolly not a huge difference, but us old wussies from the west side of town might have a bit of trouble getting up, downing 6-7 cups of coffee, getting dressed and gearing up, getting BACK undressed to get one last pit stop in, then re-gearing and riding the 45+ minutes to the far east side in time for the ride....IJS. I suppose I could ride over the previous evening, roll out the sleeping bag, and camp out in the Cracker Barrel parking lot. Your call.
