    Great ride, great food, and always great company. I truly think this meet-up group is likely the best around. It was nice to see old friends and meet new ones. Thanks Diane and Tom for putting this together and thanks to those who took pictures and video.

    Sorry we missed everyone....Our first screw up was the wrong McDonalds (Rome/Hillard). We backtracked and by the time we got to the right mcDonalds everyone was gone. We tried our best to catch up and I am sure we could have but then the DANG route 22. Detour blew it!! Way off time so we just rode around Hocking Hills. Sorry Plowboy we tried!!! Maybe we will catch you some other ride.
