    Are the titles (subie newbie, subie dude, etc), for the most part, based on post counts? if so, you should prolly make sure i keep newbie for a while longer than the norm. sadly, i know very little about cars but am excited to learn now that i have some time on my hands

    *Added....drive description(Thanks to pksublime):)********
    Squeezed between the Mississippi River and towering, forested bluffs, the Great River Road passes through handsome nineteenth century river towns, sleepy villages, and natural areas rich in wildlife. The 107-mile segment from Red Wing to La Crescent offers two optional excursions off US 61: one loops through lush meadows and wetlands in the Mississippi’s floodplain, the other scales the bluffs, offering breathtaking views of the river valley and hillside apple orchards. Special attractions: Strolling, dining, and antique shopping in the historic towns of Red Wing, Lake City, Wabasha, and Winona; Frontenac, a village where little has changed since the 1880s; hiking and birdwatching at Frontenac and O. L. Kipp State Parks; biking on county roads and the Cannon Valley Trail; bald eagle watching at Read’s Landing; spectacular views along the shore of Lake Pepin and from the blufftops on Apple Blossom Drive. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.

    I believe so...? Is there a better or more beautiful drive down the river than 61 south? If you aren't doing anything tomarrow, you could travel with and enlighten me! And, we need someone to step up and recruit more of the St. Paul guys. We're at 49, only 302 to go!hahaha

    if by tomorrow you mean during the day then sadly no. as for recruiting, your asking one of the newest guys on the forum to help recruit! i don't even know who anybody really is, even though i've seen sogonerg before and will meet dream tonight.
    btw what is the protocol for this forum, do people go by SN or by real name more?

    this is also a huge PITA for everyone else. going form your nice 65-70mph, to locking up the brakes down to 40 then accelerating to keep up, (and repeat for 2 hrs)

    lol i agree its pretty annoying, but i did okay when i was n/a (also the same single pot brakes!) on first duluth trip...its neither here nor there though, on a 2 lane highway the last thing we want is passing someone and not everyone gets around plain and simple

    from what i have seen so far. magnets rance from 8 -> 50 per pair depending on size and colors. i will have to talk with some people, but if its only like 4 per magnet that wouldnt be too bad.

    I was thinking of 2" by 6" for dimensions, but you're talking about large door ones!? I'd be willing to sport removable stickers or magnets to the event, would be good to have one about this size for photos!\/\/\/!
