Re: Creek Monkey

Well they don't take reservations and they close at 9PM Wednesday. Which is past my bedtime anyway, but hey, I gotta look out for you guys too. So I defer to Sir Kevan and y'all on it. What say Ye?

Hey Ram.

I think the 9:00 p.m. curfew may actually help a few of us arrive home safe and early. No problem here. What say the rest?

Cheers

Would anyone be interested in doing a Mt. Diablo run one night and then going to EJ Phair in Concord?

EJ Phair is great. Love the pulled pork sandwich. No parking lot though, so bikes would be scattered wherever a spot opens up. Free parking around there. No meters.

Hey LTRTahoe.

That sounds like fun. I will gladly join in if I am available. Just pick a night that works for you, send out the time/place here and see who shows up. We are not big on formality.

Cheers

The only proviso is on the "night" part. They can (not always) close the gates at sunset, and can (not always) issue tickets if you're on the park road after hours. Hours are 8 am to sunset. Campers are supposed to stay in their campsite between sunset and 8 am...

I'm baaaa-aaack!

Hi all!
Just returned home from the Artic Relay last night, after exactly five weeks on the road. Here's the ride report. Below are a few teasers.

I'll definitely be there on the 8th. Back roads ride out to Martinez anyone? Meet at The Wall again - 5:30?

I'm also up for a Mt. Diablo run ... actually, pretty much any kind of run... anytime.

Hope all are well,
Steve


Arctic Relay - 2012

Trouble started at the border when a baggie of Anti-Monkey Butt powder got mistaken for ... something else. Only a Canadian border guard would let you take a picture after all was straightened out.


Right before I jumped off of this bridge - North of Kaslo, BC.


Damsel in distress. [I saved her]


From our campsite off of the Cassiar Hwy.


Dirt nap - near Whitehorse, Yukon.


Slippy, sloppy, snot on the Dempster.


Sunset [~1am] at the Arctic Circle.


Roadside coffee break and a Dempster toast to benjava.




Chicken, Ak - holy crap, what a fun night. You know it's going to be trouble when you pitch your tent in the bar parking lot.


Glacier snowball fight - road to Haines, Ak.


Sunset from the ferry - Haines to Prince Rupert.

Hey Stephen.

Great shots. Looking forward to more. See you on the 8th. Yet another reason for others to join us.

Cheers

"....just Monkey-butt powder officer...." That's great! What? No strip search for weapons? Looking forward to the full story over brews.
Welcome back!
