Please provide details regarding what we need to do/bring to make this weekend as easy as possible for you and Theresa.

I will be hauling my bike, in my truck, up from Richmond around noon on Friday, I welcome anyone who wants to ride up with me to save their knobbies. I will be leaving Jeff's on Sunday morning after breakfast.

Looking good for me. Unless something unexpected comes up, I'll be there.

If the weathers nice I might skip out of work a little early and ride out. Anybody else riding?

I am in for sure. I hope to be out there by dark on Friday the 25th. Jeff, I had talked with you about bringing a local friend (inactive ADV member) on an XR650L, but I have not heard an answer from him. I assume he is not coming, but I will let you know if I hear otherwise. Good luck with the recon today. Creeks and rivers should be flowing well. Maybe that slippery stuff on the rocks will get washed away.

Hey Eddy, I'm might get in the trailer with you if there's a space. Waiting to see what the weathers going to be.. But if so, I'll mount up my 18" rear wheel with actual knobs.

Just in case you own a Harley or some other shiny bike that safely stays in hibernation from Thanksgiving until St. Patrick's day!

Jeff...By chance, might there be an opportunity for us to fire our small arms if we were to bring them?

No, unless that is what caused my Vario side cases to malfunction. BOTH sides seem to have jammed up expansion/contraction mechanisms.
Work and other maintenance issues have trumped recreation.
I had the feeling that I had too many fun weekends planned too close together (GS Trophy, BWDR, and PM 500). I was really looking forward to seeing Jeff's place as well as others I've not ridden with in a while. I also wanted to have the YZ ready for this but haven't been able to get to it.

Damn

Why did I read that? I feel like I've killed off some brain cells and not in the usual fun way. It does remind me to ride both bikes for a little this week just before I completely ignore them for the next couple weeks.
