If so, my family has volunteered to man the first rest stop and serve food and drinks. We have been ravaged by ms and everyone is hoping to help out even in a small way.
Thanks to anyone riding and make sure you introduce yourselves if ya know me!

Cheers

This will be my 8th year. Team thick is huge. A good number of people on the board are doing it. My aunt has MS. It is a bummer.

I’m kind of bummed I didn’t have time to fundraise to do the ride this year. It was a great ride the year that I did it with the thick bikes team.

spoke cards will definitely be here in time for me to bring them to the team thick dinner, and have a bunch of extras to sell on the ride!

I am in (for my 5th MS150), and on Team Thick this year!

I’m also camping. I don’t think I’ve been camping in 20 years. I bought a tent/pad/bag when I was planning on doing the GAP, but I’ve never used it… so I hope I’ll be able to sleep.

Last year a tandem ended up on top of an entrance to a building. It can get rowdy. We sleep in the dorms now :)

ugh, stef – now i’m feeling like I made a horrible mistake. I’ve always slept in the dorms before but I always felt like a wuss. Then I forgot to check for rooms until I missed out on the A/C rooms, so I figured why not…

just set up in the family camping area and then hang out at camp thick until you’ve had enough partying.

We needed a special place for the tandem. I am riding this year so I don’t anticipate being a late night instigator again. But I am sure there will be someone to take my place.
