Donner Motohookey this Friday (11/30)?

Anyone up for a Donner ride this Friday, 11/30?

While it looked impassable last weekend, we could try to make it over the section from Donner to the end of the Old Ballard road (aka Wilderness trail). It's guaranteed to be a toboggan run down the ice flows on upper Ballard. The Rowdy section is a definite must.

I'm a maybe. Am house hunting that day, but may be able to postpone until afternoon.

Shearboy, someone's trying to take the last ride of the year up Donner!

My actions today will precipate a long overdue blizzard. Since it's Donner, pick your most flavorful and tender riding partner.

Sabotage!

Not fair Jeff. Fortunately, I would have Ben on my side. He would surely be sporting the latest in uber-secret gear from the Dubinky R&D department. Pants that fold out into a full-heated RV or something like that.. And with his mad skillz, he'd be able to ride out carrying me curled up in the fetal position if it gets too chilly for my fingies and toes.

Mostly white. Would Donner be a suitable break in?

Oh and Jeff, I know tht bike was expensive, but some Canadian started a thread around here somewhere about how you could spend another $20K on it real quick.
