I would like to show up, since you are meeting close to my work. But I have to come in early so my wife can get in early to the Oracle conf as well, she wil be doing registration, if you see a short gal with brown/red/blonde hair with Elaine on her name tag while you are signing up say HI.

I just hope I can get my badge... A coworker is out for surgery recovery, and I'm taking her slot. It all happened too late to change the name on the registration, so I'll be using her name.

Hrm.... perhaps I was unprepared. It dawned upon me at about 6:22 as I walked through the door that I don't have the foggiest idea of what anyone looks like. I wandered around for ~8 minutes, asked a few groups if they were with ADV and gave up.

Maybe next week I can be more prepared. lol... I'm a moron.

It's always odd looking for the group. Don't feel bad. just look for Rob, he always rides, so he's in gear (Atgatt). The rest of us are wooses, we cage it if it's cold.

Caged it tonight

I was late and caged it tonight. My son wanted to come, so we took the car. He needs better gear for winter riding. Sorry you missed us Brian-M. Next time.

Rob

Were you wearing a knit cap (light color) with almost shaved head with a bushy beard? Maybe 6'2" tall?

If so, I saw you walk around while I was sitting at the corner of the bar closest to the door. When you came back to the door, I lifted my hand to get your attention, but you made a B-line for the door, and since I wasn't sure if you were with ADV or not, I didn't chase.... I didn't want you to think I was a weirdo.



At least not right away.

There turned out to be about 8 of us there tonight. The spot we got was nice, so I can see that little room being in the running when we decide on a permanent place.

$2 well drinks... I don't know what the beer cost.

Yup, that would be me. Normally the beard is bigger though, and the head hair shorter.



Though it takes a lot of work to keep that beard looking good, so I'm taking a break with a no-fuss length right now.

So did you even see me start to wave you over? Or were you looking past me? I wasn't sure if you even saw me.

I was in the blue turtleneck wearing my coat with hood right at the corner of the bar closest to the door.

Next week has changed. Iron Horse's world is hectic, so we've moved his to the end. Next Wednesday is Fat Fenders.
