Who has either Shabbos or/and Shabbos + 1 mornings available? The earlier we leave, the less bad heat we have to deal with. I know that's an issue for Bryan who works late, or rather, early (gets off at 4 am?) on Saturday so a 7am ride may be asking much. Maybe Sunday though???
I know you almost hit the back button when you saw 7am, but if we start then, we can do as much as 5 hours before nooner. That's some good gravy. A century would be nice, but we'd most definitely need to leave early then. Start at 7am and finish sometime around 1 or 2? Makes for an easy pace and lotsa miles.
So post a response with times you're available and DON'T BE AFRAID OF EARLY MORNINGS!!! Unless you really have a viable excuse like Bryan.
