Well based on my dismal performance at Dauset I thought that maybe I could put in a similarly dismal performance at Pine Log.  I just signed up for the 12 hour so I could further demonstrate how totally out of shape I am.  Except this time I can be dismal in the dark.

Carpool, anyone?  I've got $$ and can cook up a mean batch of JENKEM.

Yes 12 hour solo.  But if it makes you feel any better I haven't been on my mtb since the 8 hours.

Add me to the carpool list...  If you have a 2in hitch for four bikes and at least one roof rack (Sean's?), I have comfortable room for Five peeps, five bikes, and gear for five on my Armada tank.  As long as not all of us have 5 big coolers.  I will have one semi big.  Need room for my MASSIVE collection of bottles.

No Jenkem please....

Oh, does anyone have a decent cheap hotel close by to stay?  I would love to camp instead but I know some of you can't do it for fear of the woods monsters lurkin in the dak...  ;D

Forrest,
Will you be back in action by then?  Can I borrow your trailer?  If I can get Forrest's trailer, I will have room for 8 peeps!!! gear and all.

Lastly:  Tampa departure will be 10am on that Friday.  Plelnty of time for Morrison's and Greg's bathroom breaks.  Take the day off from work now!

Seeing how you guys performed at Dauset I have to rethink my "base miles" and skip this so not to embarass myself ;D ;D ;D

Considering my newly found superstar status and all the top dagws now gunning for me ;D  , I need some help on the pits.  Anyone interested?  Free hotel room and gas money but buy your own food.  You can even  bring your bike to fool around a bit.  Besides, I am going to need the extra advantage to keep after SquirrelGoneWild SuperJetzMike and all the Leroy Jenkems......  Anyone?

Does this mean that anybody that beats you is a superstar?

Whoever has the best race at PineLog gets the SuperStar Leroy Jenkem award!    ;D  But seriously, we do need pit help.  Again, I will pitch in for that person(s) room and gas money if you want to hang at the pits for us.  Bring your own beer and pay your own food.  Is party time!

I don't mind camping, especially if it's free.  I have a nice tent that can sleep 3-4 people. 

This race I hope to spend significantly less time in the pits.  At the 8 hours, I spent over 30 minutes in the pits, and had I spent only 15 or so, I think I would have been able to do an 8th lap. 

Treadlight - wtf are you talking about with base miles, who cares.  Stop making excuses and race :P
