That sure is a lot of If's Monti! http://tbn3.google.com/images?q=tbn:.../07/asthma.jpg







I'm game, chaulk my name in for the 25. Free is better, I wish K felt comfortable asking to use the house. That way we could save some money. We'd mow the lawn, trim the hedges, vaccume, clean the kitchen, Steve could change a lightswitch or something, fix the garage door opener, we can spray off the sidewalk.. whatever they needed. We'd leave it cleaner than it looked before.

The date will work but dont' know when I can leave since the next week I'll already be taking a day off or two to get up to the wedding but I think I can swing it.

I sure hope you're right about me being 100% Steve.

Have fun in VA Chip.

See the rest of you on the 13th. Maybe we need to be more like the 4x4 club and start maintaining some trails. Steve did you ever get that bobcat on trade? That way when we talk about what would offset our footprint on riding we can think of something. Um.... we come across pot farms / meth labs frequently and call them in to the local sherif? We're not disturbing the spotted owls? We're less likely to go bananas and murder someone because we are able to ride and releave stress? We're going to ride anyway thus being forced to ride faster, stronger, harder?

250's

Kawasaki KLX250S is only a couple hundred more MSRP, liquid cooled 10.2 front & 9.1 rear wheel travel, cartridge forks, more power (could mean less reliability though)

chip give me the number

i feel comfortable asking them if we can crash there.

if that doesnt work out, would you and the mrs be in on the room deal or would you get your own room?

so far three confirmed, if you want in on the room deal contact steve with you commitment$ and we will reserve the room as soon as 8 people fork over the 25 bucks

also if you want in on the food deal check with steve, depending on how many contributors depends on the quality of the food.

this assumes that some will trailer and bring an ice chest and barbeque

the hotel parking lot is ours




only 5 more spots available for the room deal unless chip & k are in then only 3 spots remain

at about 13.00 per night how can you go wrong right?

dont hesitate or cogitate or malifactorate, procrastinate or be too late get out of thge gate and celebrate better now than later dont be a hater always for the good of the greater whos bringing the grater? i know sounds cheesy. dont be sleazy or sneezy or whine with reason or not.

dont gamble call today and be like an indian.............make a reservation

do you know what happened to the indian who drank too much tea?

next post will have answer

Was thinking I might. I would like to believe that mine will be fixed in time. I would rather be on my own baby, god this has been a long month!

**Update** My brother in law just emailed: Work has begun weeeee! Ok who needs some manual labor and has a ton of cash laying around? I am going to need some cash to pay for all this, heh.

+10000 Shouldn't this be reason enough.

Well stated Mister Sellars!!

That woman that was bitching about adreneline crazed suburbanite off-road enthusiuasts in the (meaning her) forrest... Better then frustrated over charged volitile suburbinites loosing it and taking out half the post office.

Stress relief should not be under-rated. Mental health is just as important as physical.

I gotta second those thoughts... That, and the Yamaha XTs are butt ugly.

Only babies have maybies like rabid dogs with rabies or deralicts with scabies asking if you've heard these? Yes, omg puh-lease. You're the one with fleas join a circus and jump on a trapeze or in the lake and freeze, down the hill on your skis, just don't tease and skip out and suck balls like d's.

FREE Dsrider Brat boot camp in exchange for room & board in Tahoe

As far as a free place to stay we could post add in all west coast craigslist;

To mom with out of control brat kid And no good father figure around; (And of course a place in Lake Tahoe)
In exchange for weekend of free use of place at Lake Tahoe must sleep 8-12 floor is fine for some & food. We will deal with the brat in some sort of dsrider boot camp (much cheaper than sending kid off to some far away place)
We will show kid a new outlook on life. So what do you have to loose? We will take good and bad cop to a new extreme. Your Child will love & hate us at same time.
No pretty flyers this is the real deal.

I am thinking who would make a good cop?
