Wed. 9/11/13 3-Pass Ride ...

Ed (Multistrada) and I (Caponord) are meeting 6:30AM at the Shell
station at Hillcrest Ave. (Antioch) & Hwy-4 tomorrow. East on 4 to
Copperopolis, over to 108 and up Sonora Pass. Lunch at MtnView BBQ in
Walker. Monitor & Ebbetts Pass and a stop at Lake Alpine. Maybe swim
if we have time. 4 all the way back again. Marsh Creek Rd. is CLOSED
do to fire.

Ed, tentatively, needs to be back by 6pm. If 6pm requirement goes
away, we will definitely swim and ride out to Spicer & back. Maybe
even stop for dinner somewhere. I'll relay back-by-6pm-req change here if
it occurs.

So about mid-afternoon, in 3-part harmony, "Ugg, I'm feeling ill and
will probably stay home tomorrow ..." ;-)

Wait for us somewhere on Hwy-4 before Copperopolis if that's easier.

Hi Catfish,

Back from points north, I guess?

I suppose there is a 2% chance that I'll see you in Antioch at 6:30am tomorrow morning, and probably a 1% chance that I could keep up with you guys on the ride if I do ...

But, I'm thinking about it ...

Going to go see if you've posted any photos recently ...

see you around the campfire,

Hi John! Temptation is a terrible thing to waste! Good to hear you are in thought. The next phases are scheming & deception.

I was north for 3 weeks & 4000 miles. I occasionally remembered I had a camera with me. D'OH! Visited & rode with lotsa friends & family. I should post links & a few photos over on the BAARC thread.

I hope to see you in the mornin' John.

Smokey day in the Sierras. Had to get above 6500 feet before it thinned out. 108 was the worse. The curves of 108 made up for it though!

Stopped at Sonora Pass for a little visit with Ben & Ken.

Got to Walker just before noon and the MtnView BBQ was CLOSED. Sign sez open at Noon, but no one home. Grrr... Got gas and rode over Monitor & Ebbetts Passes to Lake Alpine for lunch. Some of my favorite curves!

The lake was too low to swim at the usual places & the campgrounds already closed. But the restaurant has some good food. Cloudy & cool, it looked like afternoon thunderstorms were forming as we ate lunch. Headed west for home and arrived a little after 5pm.

Thanks for joining me Ed. That Multistrada sure sounds sweet when you are on the gas!
