This is us getting ready to leave. Most of us were riding on motorcycles down to Myrtle Beach for the first weekend of Bike Week. It was going to be about an eight hour trip and I was really nervous because I had never ridden on the back for that long before. Luckily some of the ladies were taking a car, so I had another option in case I couldn't make it.
During the ride I was thinking it would have been cool if I could have gotten some pledges for the ride. That way I would have had extra motivation to stay on. The ride was nice until the last hour and a half. While we were getting some lunch we heard someone say that a bad storm was on the way. There were reports of hail. We waited around and while there was a lot of rain, there was no hail.
She was hanging out and crocheting a water bottle holder near where we stopped to get some lunch. I was too shy to go and actually go talk to her though.
Some of the things I learned on my long ride was that the back-rest made a ton of difference, the wind will move your helmet a little over time, and lifting your butt off the seat a little will definitely help.
This is the first thing you saw when you walked into the house that most of the group was renting. I thought it was funny that the house was telling you to escape the second you walk in the door.
I had brought some knitting with me, but I never had it with me when we had our few moments of down time. I think I will bring something small with me next year, that way I can have it with me most of the time and won't have to worry about not grabbing it at any point.
There are a few things I have finished, but it has been so rainy and gloomy that I have not been able to get any good pictures of any of it. Hopefully those will come soon.
