Only 147 miles each way (for me). Piece of cake! Pity it's not Thursday, though, that's Pi day.....   :D

All is good for the Meetup at Beans 'n Greens in Ballplay, AL. Be there at 11:30 CST. This interested can find some of us at the Little River Canyon Visitors Center beforehand.

SUCCESS!!!

8 Hardy souls braved the cold/raw/overcast and had a "cool" lunch. Great to see everyone. Conversation and food was excellent!

I rolled back into my driveway @ 6:15 pm and am finally warming up. 

Thank you Tom for organizing this and for the  visit  to Little River Falls National Preserve.

Chilly? We ain't skeerd! Were we cold, heck yes! 
Much coffee was consumed during the first RTE for north Georgia/east Alabama. Electric gear was much appreciated (especially when it worked!). Food at the alternate venue was excellent and warm, which made it even more so. We had eight hardy souls converge on Beans 'n Greens Restaurant located in the not-so-urban metropolis of Ballplay, Alabama. All manner of bikes (and one truck) were present and accounted for. I want to thank David and Marina for making this their first COG event. Hope to see them at many more.
There were several that contacted Ron and I at the eleventh hour about the event. Wish we could have touched base earlier so that the crowd could be that much bigger.
Here's a picture of the crowd (except Marina who graciously took the picture) which by this time was well fed and warmed up. Three guesses who rode in the truck, and the first two don't count....

I believe a good time was had by all
My 3 hour scenic route to upper ballplay consisted of stopping at a couple of places i usually blow past on my way to or from somewhere(straight shot from the house is about an hour and a few minutes ) Once again this group brought out the "Join for the bike Stay for the people" One truck and 7 bikes one Concours
A semi direct shot to the house and an afternoon nap Im good to go


I have no idea about anything.

Thank you Tom, for organizing this and the welcome by you and the gang. Marina and I really enjoyed it. Till next time ...

All the best to you and fellow COG'ers :-)

It looks like everyone had a great time.  Spending time with COG family is always great!
