your pictures are like snow pictures for me - I like to look at them, but I definitely do not want to be there



Thanks four your "kind" words Harald.

Re: Skyway Motorway in the Talladega National Forest - Treffen?

Looks like y'all picked a good weekend to go. I wish I could've made the trip.

Were you guys in the same area where the wildfires are burning this week?

Yes that (Rabbittown) is where we finished the ride on day 2. I promise it wasn't any of us.

Here is a picture from FL400 of the first days route taken on Thursday, no sign of a fire then.

Cool photo Matt. I can see the transmission line cut where we stopped for the photo opp. I think that's a 230 kV line. It definitely had some nice harmonics.

Re: Skyway Motorway in the Talladega National Forest - Treffen?

Any thoughts of doing this run again in the next couple of months? Family obligations have kept me from the previous runs because the fall is a busy schedule for the family. However I'm ready to go for a ride.

Re: Skyway Motorway in the Talladega National Forest - Treffen?

We've been waiting for this. We had a great time in May '15. I tried to organize another run last fall but it died a-borning. Fall will be busy for us so it will be chancy for me but if this picks up momentum and we are free that weekend we are there.
