I may skip the bike ride and meet the group in Hill City. If anyone else is doing the same and wants to share an early trip to Hill City with me, please let me know. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone next week.

Hello Craig - Same airline that makes it easy- I will call and change the time as I get in a little earlier than the two of you, what time do you fly out on the 30th? I could book our return as well. Rosemary

Hi rosemary! I noticed my reply from my phone never came through to you. Is it too late to share a shuttle with you and are you still willing to
Make the arrangements? Let us know $$$ amount, ok?... Thanks!
