    Thanks, Chuck!

    I hope to catch up with you this weekend. I'm hoping I don't have the honor of "last person to pick up their award."

    I'm signed up as a Marshal, but I've been helping with the back-office stuff a bit. This kind of work lends itself to my soft computer hands.

    There are some issues with this route. Lawyers road just west of Twin Branches is a two lane road with little or no shoulder. I would avoid taking Rout665 (no shoulder, hills, lotsa cars) and instead...
