Calling now. 

I can't promise t-shirts but I would be able to do them if I had artwork and orders in by 3 weeks prior.

right now is closing in on the end of FY20 and I'm getting busier by the day.  But, I can make it happen if someone finds artwork they like, or re-use the one we had 13 years ago.  By coincidence, I'm wearing a 2007 ESTN shirt right now.

What do you mean "IF" you had artwork.  It was just posted.  Duh.

That shirt would be SO you, Bill.   :wave: :pokestick:

Well, we'll see...  But if you guys keep insisting on unicorns I'm definitely having my daughter draw it.

Good times!
I'd love to head down for this. If the border's open I just might.

If? I’m guessing we’re out of luck till next summer. I so so so want to be wrong. I want everyone to scream at me “I told you so. You’re an idiot for thinking it was a big deal.”
I would be thrilled to be wrong. There’s nothing I want to do more than ride in the USA in the places I know where the roads are unbelievably fantastic. The riders that have easy access to North Carolina or Tennessee or West Virginia or or or are so lucky. I have the 401.😢
The very few interesting roads around here I’ve ridden so many times that they’re boring now.
This pandemic has changed everything. And from the reading I’ve done (that’s mostly what I do now) it appears that this is just another pandemic in a line of future ones that will arrive in increasing frequency. The problem is that humans are affecting the natural world so much that animals will increasingly infect us. The number of infectious diseases coming from animals is over 40,000 and counting.
Shit!
I WANT TO BE WRONG!!!!!
My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.
So if I go too far left do I end up right?

Thanks for the perspective.  I live right near some of the best that WV has to offer.  I'm going to try to appreciate that more very soon.  :)

Are you suggesting that it’s going to take 10 years before I’m proven wrong?
Hell I might be dead from old age by then...or from boredom.😎
Should I be looking for another passion? (Doing puzzles, eating everything in sight, reading my 29th Trumpocalypse book, arguing with my wife about who misplaced the tv remote, counting the Canada geese on the pond, repainting the bedroom over and over and over again...)
Or maybe posting much ado about nothing on Internet forums with people I’ve met once or twice or never?
By the way is it cool for me to wear an old STN hat to an STO gathering?

Nope, won't be that long before next epidemic; could be longer till things get back to normal. 

I just really like Alvin Lee.
