That time of year the place to be is either Death Valley or Baja - I love the NW but I sure don't like the cold.

It is a beautiful spot on a beautiful quick flowing river.
I just might get my fishing license this year

You brought your pole last year, right?
Maybe one day we should just start drinking at 9am, stay in camp and fish all day,
....take a nap before the muddy crew gets back from Millican,
and then I'll cook up some trout and rice surprise for dinner !!

Excellent !! I sure was hoping you'd pipe up this year!!
There's no good excuse when you live less than 20 miles away
It was two years ago, this weekend, that I first met you at that gas station in Prineville.
You camping with us, too?

got any firewood?

Yah I remember that! There was this sea of orange that pulled into the station like a gravitational field that I was drawn to!

Need to check my calendar to be sure but I'll at least day ride (if you allow little bikes) and I can bring a load of wood easy!

it's a docking station for my Motorola. It allows hookup of a big TV and a wireless keyboard for use kinda like a PC. It uses Mozilla Firefox, and it wants to translate the post-link code in a quote into a phone number or URL addy. I dunno why, some stoopid setting somewhere that's only visible to people under 30 years old.

whatevah....I'm a stereo geek, I have little patience for this computer stuff

I don't "allow" anything here, it is what it is
There will be a Friday and a Saturday ride, with no goals or agendas, and some jaunts up to Millican for some, likely. The first year's ride all the way around that lower Ochoco forest section was fun. Last year got a bit goooey and slippery, and gave us an excuse to start the campfire early. Have you ever seen a 990 do a 180 spin, at 15mph, slowly turning and coming to rest facing back at my riding partner, TJ? I woulda never thought I'd have enough balance to keep it up through something like that, but it was a hoot!!

Sounds like a plan. Looking forward to it. I'll bring wood and something to share!

Last year we heard the stories of how crappy it was in Bend.
Lots of snow there, above us, at the Crooked River,
we saw lots of clouds blowing quickly over,
and got just a little bit of weather.
Trust me.......it'll be awesome
