Operation "Welcome Wagon" - Mobile, AL
A long shot here, but still a possibility:
By now some of you have heard of the very long ride being made by our forum member, Rich "Dragdaddy71" Bassford and his friend Robb Osborn, both of Moline, IL. More on that here: http://tothegulf.com/ No doubt, quite an undertaking and all for a good cause.
I'm curious if any members from the Mobile area might be able to meet them on the water as they near the city? I'm trying to see if a meet-n-greet is possible on Gravine Island as they travel south. Obviously a lot depends on the weather and their ETA. They are hoping to make Mobile by Friday, but Saturday at the latest. I cannot ride on Friday, but I'm open for the weekend.
And if that doesn't work out, perhaps a Sat. PM ride in the general area or possibly on Sunday? Anything can happen (and probably will), but this is just more of a FYI and What If? kind of post.
Thoughts or opinions?

You know we will be there if I can get back from KY.
There is a launch where Jrobson and I went with Rooster that is an easy ride up to Gravine Island.
On the other hand, the island is not that far from the launch I used on the "windy" loop. And then we could ride downstream to Mobile Bay with the travelers.

Yeah, if I can make it and we meet up - I was hoping we could "loop out" the ride...

Bill, what a great idea and totally appreciated. I only hope I am not baked, burned or bitten on the way there, see you all soon.

"I only hope I am not baked, burned or bitten on the way there..." It's not a trip unless you bag all three! LOL Travel safe, Rich. I'll be in touch...

Sorry guys. We are not going to make it back by Saturday. Possibly be back Sunday night or Monday if your ETA changes that much.
