Saturday we drove most of the morning to get to Stokesville.

1st SM100 for Gunnar and Betsy?!!

Super volunteers and racer Chris Wurster http://chriswurster.blogspot.com/ 69 and Beth. Aloha pint glasses!

Registration and setup all evening with Jimbo, Lynn, Kelsi, Chris & Beth and a couple of others. Kerry Combs http://ifchicks.blogspot.com/relief was welcome, which allowed us to get something to eat.

In the reg tent was Jon Meredith http://drj0nswanderings.blogspot.com/from Scotland. He was at the SSWC08 http://sswc08.blogspot.com/and flew across the states to attend the SM100. I remember this smiley pleasant fella from the W101 years ago and I don't know why.

Stayed with Lynn for the duration. I wish I had my camera when it was daytime pit stop to feed: It was like a FUNNYFARM !!!with 2 Colorful Roosters, 2 Llahmas, a long hair bull with bike bar ends on his horns , and a beautiful show horse and four cats.

Pre sunrise we headed to Station #1 in which I was "the manager", set up stuff at the campground for the finish, cut some stuff in the kitchen, go to station #5 to drop off sweeper bikes, Station #6 and found three riders going the wrong way, at the expense of local hoodlums with nothing else better to do.

Alex Kopko http://kopko.blogspot.com/was hanging there, evidently he has a class at SRU with Josh....hmm things are coincidental.

Each and every rider and their hellos keeps me going in my life venture.
