    I can't believe no one else thinks it is a good idea to head south for a few days in the middle of January.

    I will probably not go on this trip unless someone else signs up and wants to share a room to help cut the overall costs of this weekend.

    My friend won't be joining us.

    This sounds great Dave. trying to see if a friend of mine is interested also. How many bikes can you fit on your trailer ? If more people want to go than your trailer fits some could ride down or we can maybe stop half way and switch. Just an Idea.
