WHAT A BLAST!

Sounds like fun. I didn't even go to the race today. The rain chance got to 50%, so I stayed home. I hadn't bought a ticket yet so no biggy.

Sorry I missed Aetna.

Yeah, the rain kinda hit and missed us, but we still had a SUPER blast. No dust or pollen FTW!

Awesome! I hate the dust but I hate the pollen more! That place would be worse than Tellico without some rain I bet.

Nice pics. It looks like, even without the rain, you guys found the mud.

Does the Rubi belong to Rock Krawler or does it just have stickers on it?

Is that this weekend? I might try to make it, but I doubt it. I've got Emily, if I can drag her down there then maybe.

Cool, good looking Rubi. I'll be ordering the bikini and duster probably this week.

It sure does resemble this one.

we have an official ride the beginning June as a club at Aetna and another at Tellico as well. You might want to get on the Beasley ride next weekend (may 10th I think). But Chris goes to Aetna frequently so just watch for his threads.

I've been on 4 GATR rides this year, and each one of them was in pouring rain  :D  (Tellico-well that was 28th of December- Morris Mountain in Jan, River Rock in Feb, Tellico in April... when will we catch a dry one?...    In fact the only dry wheelin' I've done this year was at River Rock last week with Jimmy. I remembered what traction was like  :o   ;D
