Sunday morning.... myself, Murph, Rich, and Jeff. We headed out around 8am. Was dry for a little while, then we either caught the rain or the rain caught us. All we know is that we were soaking wet. Rain was coming down so hard, it made it impossible to see. After pulling over quite a few times and for countless hours waiting for the rain to slow down, we finally got out of North Carolina around 3pm.
Rich caught a nail before we got to Richmond, Virginia. Lucky for us, Tim & Company were behind us with the trailer. We pulled Paul's bike off and did a swap. Also, the rain stopped around Richmond, which meant smooth sailing all the way back to Baltimore.

8:45pm we made it back into B-more. Tired, cold, we took the pride of knowing we rode down AND back to Smoke Out. Murph's rigid ironhead made it all the way. Rich's shovel was rolling good until the nail...
Other notables that rode back as well: Cliff, Wild Bill, and Bobby
Good times! We'll do it again next year!
