Mike, if nobody in your area bites PM me and we'll do this. Timing depends on when you'll have the book and when you are willing to ride. My schedule is open until October, then it gets busy. I think the only weekend I am free in October is the 20th, but I can take 2 days off during the week as well. Let me know.

That would also put the book in the hands of @vito and @John D as they're both real close and I've met them on Ephrata runs

Also maybe @Paulie @balloonot @PA Dave @Labswine @ooshoe3 they're all within an hour or so of me


PM me some details if and when brother, I'll ride til the snow falls

If the books ends up in my hands I'll reach out. I ride until the snow falls too...and after it melts, several times. Lol

Take him up on this
our brother smilie is a daym good dude to meet, and especially to share a meal with!

Sometimes it seems like I'm arguing, that's just how I work out a solution:.. The other times I'm arguing.

Sounds like a plan brother!

Though, lets not let the little blue one miss his chance either! @smurfy71

October is going to be a little tricky balancing work and play, but let's see. My room is booked in Marshalltown for sat. night so the wheels are turning.

Over the last 2 days I have went back through this thread, well the 1st 1500 post or so.
It's amazing the number of hands that THIS ONE BOOK has been in and the serious friendships this book has helped start!
I know I annoy y'all a lot about this book, but it's with passion for the meaning behind the Book and the Legacy of John Hopkins that we all share!
2 things...
1. How many signatures is in it now? Anyone care to take a few pics of sits and share?
2. How many miles approx y'all got, the BIG mike peeps? @Theja1 and @smilie surely have over 1000 miles, @Canyon is well over that also. Just curious.
Thanks for all that all of you have done to help!

Well, according to mapquest, I've got just under 2500 miles with the book. Looking forward to adding many more before I tip over.

Nice!
I will get my hands back on it also and help again. Next year I will be back in NH, it would be cool to take it with, pass back to Steve and make him start over...
Evil/sneaky ain't I
Ja has his hands full right now I doubt he can chime in soon.

Y'all put me on the want to read list. I can ride almost all year. I can always get it to @Coop or @Theja1 if it need to move more than my stock seat will let me move it.
