    Purposely made sure that there was not a BMC autocross scheduled for 5/28 to avoid any personal conflicts with that weekend.

    I've attached the flyer for this years edition of Eric's Riverrun in post #1.

    Registration is open so if you plan to come please register with Susan Logan. We need to know if you are coming so we can get enough routes printed.

    Here is a link to pictures from us laying out this years run. You will see some gravel & under water roads. Rest assured those will NOT be used.

    Thanks see you there. :biggrin5:

    Yesterday Bill & I did the final drive of Eric's Riverrun. The roads were fun & the weather was wonderful. The wildflowers were in full bloom along with the Red-bud & Dogwood trees.

    We took Bill's 996 German Panzer car so rest assured a MINI won't have any issues.

    As of yesterday we had 47 pre-registrations. If you plan to come please contact Susan Logan our registrar. We need an accurate car count so we know how many routes to print. Thanks. :D

    As of this evening there are 83 people registered for Eric's Riverrun.

    One more drive of the course on Thursday & we'll be good to go.

    Hope to see some of you Saturday the 27th for a fun day on the back roads. :D

    Today Bill & I drove the course for the last time in preparation for this year's edition of Eric's Riverrun. We did the checkout one day early this year & man am I ever glad we did. Turns out the State of Ohio decided to close a bridge we use. So after a re-route around it we are good to go.

    The magnets that good friend Carol designed & had produced for us will be here tomorrow. The routes & maps will be printed Friday, so Saturday we can all have fun driving some of Ohio's best back roads.

    See you all Saturday morning. :D

    Our crack crew is working on finishing touches even as you read this.

    I can't wait, I worked on the car late last night to make sure it was ready, I hope it is ready. Thanks Chuck and Bill for mapping it out again. I'm trying to bring as many people as possible and send a reminder email out again last night. See you Saturday morning

    Glad you are coming Jason, it's always great to see you & your fun little LBC. I hope a bunch of LBC's come along with you.

    Bill put in some overtime & we are now good to go. :Thumbsup:

    One more day! Need to get my radio charged, gps set up, and maybe a last minute swap to the all season tire/wheel set up (found out last week at autocross that the summer tires are not that great with standing water).

    Leave the sticky tires on. There will be no standing water, just clear skies & fun roads. :fingerscrossed:

    Sorry we couldn't run to the end yesterday. We found and went beyond Erin's stomach limits and ended up going hiking at Old Man's Cave since we were nearby.

    Still, it was good to see everyone and next year we'll do better.

    No worries Zapski, stuff happens. You might try running with a more casual run group next year. I bet your better half would enjoy that more & you might too.

    Nice turnout yesterday. I don't know how many cars we had, that will have to wait for Susan's final tally. I'll post up what our final numbers are when I get them.

    Hope to see you next year. :D

    Going to spend today washing off the bug collection and road grime I brought back from RiverRun! It was another great route that Chuck and Bill put together!

    That is the price you pay for a fun day on some of Ohio's best back roads. Cheap at twice the price. Thanks for reminding me that I have 2 cars to clean the road smush off of. Come on over we can can have a detailing day. :D

    Was going to spend some quality time detailing it today, but saw that there is a car meet at the bottom lot at Hoover at 2:00. Went with a quick wash to get the majority of the bugs off instead.

    Great run! It was nice to have a navigator this year. We only missed 2 turns.
    All the thanks to Chuck and Bill.

    By the way who else saw the rattle snake in the middle of the road? I didn't see it move until I was going by it. Looking in the side mirror it struck out at the next car by.

    Very lively timing belt. I knew timber rattlers lived in Ohio but I have never seen one before.
