Thanks in advance,


Dean, I am running the Zumo 550, but do not like the Base Camp software. I am running Map Source software which I think is better. Your programs will run in map source as will mine run in base camp. My email: kenlind1942@gmail.com

There are two planned rides. One for the 21st and another for the 22nd. Each ride is ~160 miles in length so we can leave at a reasonable time in the morning, have lunch on the road and get back to the hotel with plenty of time to visit with the other attendees. You are free to join the rides or not. Simply put you are free to do whatever you wish. The first ride is more of a touristy type ride and we'll take in some notable sites one of which is Cass State Park where the Scenic RR is located but there is no official plan to take any ride or pay admission to any attraction.

The second day is mostly just a ride but we'll be taking some of the more challenging routes available in the area.

Count me in! Paulette's neurologist changed her diagnosis to Lewy Body Dementia today and said she is in an advanced stage. The main difference is the life span is shorter. This is a blessing as I watch her suffer daily. I have booked a room, and the 84 is ready to roll.
