The bon fire sure was a memorable one. Especially for those of us that stayed until the "after most go to sleep" I didn't know dead Christmas trees could make a fire raise that high. I am sure aliens from out of space could see that fire. WOW!!!! Some pictures from last night will surface soon and Iíll post a link on here. It was my first IDIDARIDE and I for one am glad I was able to finish. I fought a chest congestion all day and my good friends pulled me along for the last 15 miles. It fealt as if I only had half of lung left when I got done. Riding a 50 miler with a heavy chest congestion only makes it worse that's for sure. But we finished and that was our goal. A big THANK YOU to Janice, Kelly, Bob, and Forrest. We all think they should change the name from Ididaride 50 to Ididaride 56!
As for joining you in North Georgia, we are booked for a trip to Ellijay. We will first be going to Tsali, NC on April 6 for three days. From there, we will settle at Ellijay, GA for another five days of riding starting 4/9/2007. If this is near you, please come out to say hi. There are about 30 SWAMPers going.
Are you doing the Croom 50 in two weeks?
