Please let me know if you plan on going
Hey Paul,
We're having trouble getting that file (paul and jill complete) to load in google earth. I'm sure it's something on our end.

Any chance you can give me the waypoint for the campground? Or the name?
Matt and I are talking about death valley next week and the timing might work out for our way home. We would try and catch you in Taft and ride with you guys on the 17th.

Our plans aren't solid yet (hoping that james gets our suspension work done by friday) but we're a definite "maybe."

P.S. Hey Rob, why don't you and Becky hop on the zombie and come down for this? Becky was talking about a 2up ride...

Hey Paul, does Klipstein rd have a gate on it? I saw another track, maybe yours that only goes part way? GE makes it look all good?

Thanks, Paul - lat/lon is perfect.
We're still gonna try and find you guys in Taft, but if we fuck up somehow, at least we know where you're camping!
I'm excited about this - thanks for the invite :)
Looking forward to meeting you and Jill.

Thanks

not that it matters but the weather forcast has improved greatly

I have found weather forecasts to be way off over 48 hours in advance.. 9 days in advance is a total guess on their part.

New to Bay Area, need a place to live so I can get my bike up here!

Hello Fellow Riders,

I recently got a job promotion which has brought me to the beautiful bay area. LOVING the area so far except for the taxes and price of housing. YIKES I am excited to get my bike up here--Road Trip from AZ!!--as soon as I get settled...and this is where I am running into problems. I am having a heck of a time finding a place to live (rent) that will welcome my pup--8 year old lab retriever.
Anybody out there know of/have a place for rent on the peninsula (working in San Bruno) that would take a responsible professional, a bike & a dog for less that $1800/mo? A yard and a garage for the bike is the dream so I'll put out there.
I apologize if this is an inappropriate place for such a posting.
