The family obligations finally won; I'm baggin' out boys. I definitely wanted to head down but I was really pushing it with the family; need to keep my powder dry, if you know what I mean.

Thanks Maddaddy for rallying the troops. I'll need to focus on April 7th, 14th, or 15th, whichever works out best. Hopefully, we can get another group together for one of those days and maybe wrangle a few from up this way, too.

Have fun, stay dry, and be safe! I hereby release my portion of the hashbrowns...

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?

Laugh

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

Thumb April MAG!!! Be there or be...

I met with my good friend from Fish Brewing Co. today and sorted out the MAG plans. He's excited about everyone showing up and is very supportive. It’ll be a great MAG for sure!

Place
: Fish Brewing Company in Olympia is the spot!

Address: 515 Jefferson Street S.E., Olympia, WA 98501

Date: Saturday, April 14, 2007

Time: 1:00PM - Whenever!

So, I’d like to welcome you all to meet up at their new brewpub, affectionately known as the “Fishbowl.” They serve wonderful, fresh food that's organic, too...just like their beer!

If the weather is decent, we should try to work in a ride before or after the MAG!
