They've posted a flash flood warning for the area saturday due to rain in excess of 1" on top of already saturated ground. The alts. may need to be postponed, there are river crossings you know.

There was five or six of them in the first alt. if I remember right and a couple of them were fairly deep a month ago.

We should probably send a couple of people ahead to check them out while the rest of us hold back.

"Windy with rain and thunderstorms - some may be strong in the afternoon. Storms may produce large hail and strong winds. High 59F. Winds SSE at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of rain 90%. Rainfall may reach one inch."

weather for tomorrow
Hail? Large hail? Anybody have a waterproof camera?

I noticed they said "may" produce large hail. It might only be small hail.

My camera is water proof. I'll take some video of the water crossings. Should I pack my riding suit or my wetsuit...

Badguy, if you don't have your bike together yet throw all the pieces in a box and we can do it here.

Good to go Thanks for the offer though.

I have a waterproof gopro, so along with all the other guys with cameras, getting video won't be a problem...editing it and uploading it is a different story though I'll get around to the dirtwise footage one of these days.

I once pulled up to a stoplight and forgot to put my feet down.

I couldn't get the bike beyond second gear either.

A wedding, seeing one of my buddies from Viet Nam, a full bottle of single malt and the better part of a bottle of Dom Perignon will make you forget simple things.
