OOPS! It would appear the sweeper of your group way very far behind you. You missed one turn just before HWY 6 (it is the stop sign to turn onto 3090 coming the other way) Yes, I passed you with Guitar Man. We were going back looking for his hood. We found it, and I turned around again to wait for Yamawhore, Vmaxgirl, ect... My apologies you got put in the inbetween spaces. Glad you made it home ok. Again sorry, I will talk to the leader of your group about leaving a person at that intersection for the sweeper.

I didnt go over 60 after stopping after the cop. And I went back for 1 mugbug as everyone else went to the gas station. They were pacing at 45mph(ok, they just said 55) through the second half of 3090.


We waited, including Ray, until we heard about you. So if you waited 'at the gas station we were earlier' for 30 minutes, we would have seen you.


If someone is stopped on the side of the road, I would tend to question why, especially if they passed you and were waiting(just my take.)


As for not answering anyone's phone calls, texts, etc... or your girlfriend calling the member telling her 'its best you arent home when he gets there' that is a threat.


As for the other silly highschool drama stuff, like removing people from your myspace account, not answer texts from people that were genuinely concerned... etc... come on, we're all adults here.


You did sit there as we left the stopped group and turned onto 3090, we slowed to a crawl as I looked back and you just sat there. That's why we continued.


So no hard feelings, we made every effort we could to include you in the ride but it takes a little give as well from the rider(or simply tell someone you wanted them to shadow you etc.) We are glad to hear from you and I felt better knowing you did make it home safe that night.

I was going 83 in some spots trying to keep up.....even with a wreck and the cop pulling peeps over ya'll still caught up and zoomed past me.

That's when I decided to just enjoy myself at my own noobish pace.

Sloshmrbones....wish I would have met you...we could have rode together.
I think you were in the big gap between scary fast group and me & sweeper group!

My take from the various comments is there was a little mis-understanding about the ride.. it was a noob TO the forest ride, not a forest ride FOR noobs. Everyone went out of their way to keep everyone together, but looks like it was the usual disparity between group speeds.

Let me also add that the confusion might also be because some people intend to go back that way to 290. It is not unusual for people to bypass that latter part of the ride and just head on their own to HWY6 (290) So that could be another lesson learned.

yep My bad....I don't get that. You watch out 4 noobs on the way to forest...not in the forest or any other roads. I would have been totally lost if it wasn't 4 Staceys & Dustin! I totally thought it would be a nice noob paced ride in the forest to Yankees and back with other noobs. Not me alone with a couple of baby sitters in back!

A "noob" ride is the perfect place for two ups.... "noob" pace is at or below the speed limit.
