    It will be an honor to just be in your presence. Thank you so much for this. We will be forever changed.

    LOL. You'll have to slow down a lot if you want to stay in my presence. 1/4 mile ahead of my presence is much more likely.

    My presence just might show up for this as well. I am the living definition of "casual pace."

    Also, am I the only guy on here who doesn't have all the gravel road numbers in PNF memorized? I know what 1206 and 475 are, but the rest of them just sort of run together in my head.

    Nope, you're not the only one. Except for 5000, I don't have a clue as to which numbered service road is which. I just go by visual clues or rely on the group to not get lost.

    Glad your coming. Basically were riding some of the best trails in Bent Creek and North Mills River. If you need to know more then that just consider ignorance is bliss. Thats what I had to do.

    Now you're cast of steel and cast aside. Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died

    Thanks for the ride Pat. And to all you guys who waited on me at the top of every hill. And there were lots of them. Did anybody get a total distance on today's death ride?

    Editing out the extra distance to/from home, my Garmin shows 33 total with roughly 4750' elevation gain. Nice meetin' you and everyone who rode today!

    My feet finally thawed out about 30 minutes after getting in the truck and cranking the heat. I guess I shouldn't have tried to ride the deep part of Fletcher Creek.

    I'm glad you did, only because you showed me exactly which line NOT to take!

    I highly recommend DeFeet's Woolie Boolie socks. I can get 'em soakin' wet down in temps down to 40 degrees and they still feel warm with no other shoe cover/booties needed. Of course, that could just be me.
