Jim (KZ_Rage) was looking for a Mississippi rider. Hook up with him and see what y'all can do.

Awesome. The more Kaws the better the photo ops. Hehe. The plan is to avoid the slabs, so a 440 will be just fine.

If anyone signed up for Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ontario Canada and Michigan please post a confirmation as to what part you can cover of the route.

We REALLY need a Mississippi (hopefully around the mid-eastern side of the state) & Western New York near the lake or Erie PA relayer! Also anyone around the Bowling Green Ky area would help make the distances more manageable.

Here is the very tentative route:



At the end of the route the token will be in Michigan for a possible hand off to the Chicago area or it can be shipped if needed.

Rage, I'm in central MS., let me know how you have the relay routed. I'd love to ride in this one. Thankz.

We have been hoping to get a Mississippi rider. I have been wanting to ride the Natchez Trace also, so maybe we can work that into our meet-up spot. Boatdrinks and I are close to each other so we have been talking bout riding some together maybe all three of us can meet up. Definetly add yourself to the map. We are part of the second leg so still plenty of time to plan it all out. Welcome aboard

Worst time in my life was spent married to a girl from New Philly. Her last name was Miller too but, so is about half the population there.

Well, I know it wasn't any of my relatives. My brother is the only miller I'm related to in all of ohio I think. And my sister has a different Dad, different last name. I think there's about 2 pages of millers in the phone book though. hahaha

Sure! No one is going to be left out as long as the flag hasn't already made through that part of the leg.

I'll be the one bringing it that direction so there is a couple of options for you since your pretty close to Hynohio and Cobura. I had planned on passing it to Hypnohio but we can work out whatever works for you and the others, buddy riding with Hypnohio or Cobura, putting yourself between the two or maybe even helping to take it further north from Cobura toward the Canadians.

We're still in need of a rider to fill the Pitt's to Canada segment, so if you know of anyone then let them know about this to see if they might help out.

Marked. I can meet hypnohio anywhere I need to. I don't mind ridding north or east to Pittsburgh. There's some nice state routes that will get me to Pittsburgh.

Hypnohio here-
I'm near Marietta and was planning going up rt 7 along the river, but can meet up anywhere to hand off or ride together. Depends on whether more Ohioans get into the mix.

Depending on time available off of work I would be interested. I live near KZRage, so maybe a ride-along or something of the sort. Any idea when you will get the flag, Jim?

Sorry for being absent, getting ready for some surgery and not feeling to well at the moment. Not to worry, I'll be fit and ready when the flag makes it to leg#2 to be sure it completes our leg as planned.

Melvin the flag is on its own schedule, best to watch the other relay threads here to monitor its progress to our leg. Still guessing June or later though at this point.
