Stagecoach XVII, Stockton, AL
« on: December 01, 2013, 02:12:48 pm »
I've been riding, but by the end of the month, I'll need to take a RIDE. Anyone thinking about doing the the Stagecoach XVII 'Last Ride of the Year' to Stockton, AL? It comes on the heels of the SECOG 'Last Blast' ride hosted by Larry Buck in Titusville, FL, so there's an opportunity to get a little back to back riding done before some weather sets in. Just askin' is all.        Al

Kinda, sorta, maybe.

Ideas on logistics? Overnight somewhere in Lower Alabama for two nights?

A good opportunity to get restocked on some Abita Andygator.

If it's this day only, a down and back was my thought as well. Combo with Last Blast would be different.

Ouch, 964 miles in one day. Not an option for this cowboy.

It's kinda of sort of on my radar. Did it a few years ago, 2010, I think. Tried to do it last year but my cousin couldn't make it out of his house due to ice, so I bagged it as it was below freezing and I was worried about ice as well.

If the weather looks decent, I'll probably go unless we go to what ever bowl game USC ends up in, which is still a possibility.

Don't know about including the Last Blast as I would have to head back home or spend two nights on the road. So, more than likely it will be a down and back from the Atl.

So right now, I'm a definite possible maybe.

Yeah, but I'd probably be to hung over to ride.  :beerchug:

But, I'll keep as an option. I have the time off, so no big deal there. Let me sort it out and I'll get back to you.

Thanks for the offer.

I'll be at Stagecoach, as it is a short haul for me. But I do have the Last Blast on my radar, and that would probably be a run over the day before and roll west with a full belly Saturday. Hhmm.

What's the date and time for the Stagecoach, is it still happening?, or are we talking about a previous one?

Well, the Last Blast is out for me. But still working on the Last Ride. Kay & I are attending the Capital One Bowl so I am trying to work out how to fit the Last Ride in. To be continued......

Ahhhh, I see, makes sense, thanks
 I've heard rumblings of the ride over the years, been curious about attending it, just never mustered up to do it. Seems like a neat gig. Will have to plan accordingly for next time.....

Won't be much better for you next year Vic. It's on Tuesday in 2014.
Makes about as much sense as going to IL every year for a cheeseburger, but I like doing that also. Kind of like my runs to Maine for a lobster and right back home. Hey......I never said I was smart. But I do like to ride ;)       Al

Trying to explain the sense in long distance riding to a person with any sense makes no sense, and is just down right nonsensical.

I was explaining the Big Money Rally to my wife, you know riding around to far away places usually in the middle of nowhere to get a photo of my bike and a particular object, like a library or a courthouse, or where Billy Graham started...yeah, you know, it makes no sense.



But I like it.  :sign0151:

I've stopped explaining it and just tell them that is just what we do.
