Where to Meet ADV Riders - South Sound

Here's a continuation of the original post that we can use to highlight and organize a South Sound meeting place for the ADV Rider crowd.

So, thinking along the same lines as the event everyone enjoyed this weekend at Redhook, let’s come up with a joint down south that rocks!

Visibility, access, parking, seating, food and beer…you know the drill!

So, South-Sounders, tell us about joints down in your neck of the woods that might be strong candidates as an ADV Rider meeting spot!

Let 'er rip!

Bump

Are there no good stomps in the south end???

I have a place to suggest that's pretty sweet. I'm just waiting to confirm that they can handle a group of 12+.

Stay tuned...

South Sound Ideas

I'll start looking for a place that will entice the followers of this forum.

Let me find a place that has free beer and water (except for the sponser )

Good [hi-visibility] parking

Easy to find with or without a GPS

and great Natchos as well as other food items.

PWGS

Okay, now that's the spirit I'm talkin' about! Light that fuse and run with it PWGS!

I've got one up my sleeve that I'm waiting on, too. It’s a good one that I promised not to disclose until I get the green light…

Hey BPP:

Yeah, I saw that one. Thanks for the suggestion! I like where you're headed suggesting that place!

Renton is still sort of middle sound and I think, based on the feedback at Redhook this weekend, that the Riders are looking for something a bit further south. Oly, Tacoma, you know, down south a bit…

I'm sure we'll all check this place out at some point! It looks pretty damn cool! So long as the beer is cold...

Thanks again! Keep the suggestions coming!

Thumb great ride today

danride and I had a fantastic teeth jarring ride through the olympic forest. there's still some snow out there but we found a route that took us from wynooche lake to the east side of 101. note to self (buy TKC 80's!! or write a book on how to thrash a set of tourance's in a day.)

so the south sound breakfast and ride had increased by 100%!!!! ...um ....2 riders

see you next week!

I'm glad you made it out. I was hoping you did!

I was a good sport with my family obligations and able to get in a 90-minute street ride late this afternoon. I broke in the TKC 80s a bit more. Buy them - you will love them...just don't buy them on a rainy day like, ahem, I did. That was a little freaky...

I hope to get down there soon. The 7th, 14th, and 15th are still looking the best for me.

How about others?

I'M ON THE SINK PROGRAM, SO LET'S DO IT AGAIN. THE WEATHER TURNED GREAT, AND THERE WAS NO DUST! IMAGINE THAT! THERE'S LOTS MORE ROUTES TO EXPLORE . THE KNOBS ON THE KAROO'S HAVE A COUPLE MORE RIDES LEFT IN THEM. I ENJOYED THE COMPANY AND THE ROUTE .

I was thinking more would have shown with the great weather, too bad. Sounds like at least two of you's had fun.

Me, I was and have been painting a ceiling [Rotate 90-Right] in my old place while on maternity leave with the Mrs.

Hope to make next rendezvous
