Question

Is this a rain or shine event, and what is the cutoff date, or can we pay at the gate? Can anyone attend? Like my neighbor on his cruiser.

Just so you know, I have been turned away on the bike when they think the conditions are too bad. (While they were letting cars go.) Do not know how often this happens, but it happened to me.

Yeah, you won't find many of us too sweet to get wet. I need to know by next Wednesday. Your neighbor can come on a Sears mini if they want, but need an ADV account and name. It is free and easy, what is the problem? Paypal is appreciated.

I don't mind riding in the rain at all, but not a big fan of camping in the rain. That doesn't mean I won't do it.

Laugh Fri riding buddies?

Anyone want to meet up & head north to Cromag on Friday? Knobbies needed as the route includes Class 4,5,6 roads. Just sign up if you want to on this thread: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=820168 Of course, you could also head south & meet if you want twice the fun.

Don't worry, it NEVER rains for CroMag. Last year was dry and sunny all week, with highs of 70 degrees every single day.

I agree. But thats what the alcohol is for. The harder it rains, the harder I will drink.


As for them turning us away from the Mountain, I have seen them do it on bridges too. High winds are usually the reason. Its a nice ride there either way.

Yeah, 2 years ago we camped in Nova Scotia for 10 days, it rained for 9 of those days So I'm no stranger to camping and or riding in the rain. It makes for interesting stories later on + you find all the leaks in your gear

Dennis et al, hi!

For what it's worth, the top of Mt. Washington this morning was covered in rime ice. Photo below. Link to Mount Washington's facebook page







If they say you can't go up on the bike, I'll take you for a brisk ride up in a car. Tighten your seat belts.








I know there's something amazingly special about Mount Washington, but if you're interested in getting high and seeing great views of the foliage, as well as having a nice ride uphill, there's always Mount Equinox, in Manchester, Vermont.









Quote:
Serious drivers will love the Mount Equinox Skyline Drive's hairpin turns and dramatic climb to the 3,848-foot summit of the highest mountain in the Taconic Range. The 5.2-mile upward climb is the longest, privately owned, paved toll-road in the U.S. Interestingly, it's owned by monks. The road and about 7,000 surrounding acres on Vermont's Mount Equinox were given to the Carthusians, a Roman Catholic monastic order, by their former owner, the prolific inventor and former President and Chairman of Union Carbide, Dr. Joseph George Davidson. By Kim Knox Beckius













It's owned by the Carthusian Monks, who live nestled in, on the back side of the Mountain. There's an interesting story to be told about this mountain and it's 7000 acres.

Just checking to insure that my condo with both outdoor hot tub and fully covered hot tub is prepared. Please do not forget that they have to be Egyptian Cotton 800 thread count sheets, and the fresh rose petals for my bath cannot be any older then 35 mins or they just will not do.

I'm positive that all my dietary concerns outlined in the "personal appearance contract" have been met. Strawberries cannot be warmer or colder then 52 degrees.

I also must reiterate that the Lobsters I am served must have been caught within the hour by nubile young virgins and lovingly prepared by other non-fishy smelling nubile young virgins.

This is goona be a fun event, just make sure all my needs are properly met and we will get along just fine!!
