    Who have you met IRL

    While most of you are still imaginary internet friends, there are a bunch of you that I have met in real life. I looked at the list and started wondering what many of these old school RBR folks are doing and how they are living life.

    I thought I met Bigrider at the dinner, but I am sometimes absentminded.

    Look in here for other names that slip my mind

    You forgot me. I've got pictures. I'm up to 32 people (including everyone on your list) plus I'm the only one who's met JayTee so I've got that going for me.

    This thread has brought back some really nice memories for me. Just to name a few.

    Riding a fixed gear century with MB1 and the gang, none who I had ever met before. We are only about 3 miles up the road and I hear the lady right behind me (Miss M) say, " I found a sweet spot, I think I am going to ride behind you the whole ride"

    Riding from my house on a cold December night and after having to dress Uzzie with my clothes in my garage (literally dressing) we went for a short frigid ride with the RBR group. They left that night with a covering of snow on the ground.

    IOPturbo picking me up in a boat on a random dock in Charleston to take me out to the anchored catamaran he built. Neither one of us had ever seen each other before. Glad he wasn't a pirate.

    Riding at Christmas with the RBR gang through 34th street and having a great dinner afterwards.

    Riding on the eastern shore from LenJ's place.

    Hanging out with Hollywood and Mapei talking fiddles and eating mexican.

    Meeting up with ATP on crutches and going out for a great meal.

    And of course the Js. Packing teh heat in Chattanooga with the Memphis posse.

    The tour of DC was awesome. Riding and history combined with a 100 miles of scenery and food.

    I briefly talked to someone in a Lounge jersey at RAGBRAI this year. Have no idea who that was. That's about it for me. Perhaps I will run into some AZ RBR folks some day.

    I've met a ton. Too many to list.

    Two Cooper rides. Bunch of Chicago rides. And the Hokie ride on the east coast.

    I'd like to think I've met more than just about anyone else, but I'm sure MarkS has me beat.

    I've wanted to join in on a couple of group rides but the budget/time has not allowed for it.

    Maybe this year.

    OTOH, despite having never met anyone IRL, I probably 'talk' to you all more than anyone else, which is pretty accidental and pretty strange.

    Oh crap. I forgot to add Vonteity to my list. I think that is because we were riding snowboards, not bikes.
