Ike! thanks! i should almost definitely be able to make it!
my friend adam and i took that route on our scooters saturday morning... it was a super nice ride.. and augusta was a pretty cute little town. we ate lunch at the "general store" and checked out a couple antique shops then headed across the ferry and back Rt. 52.
we accidentally ended up on I-275 though! imagine going 55 mph with semis passing you.. on 10" tires! haha..
ill be in touch.
