Dang,

Luca. I'm begining to think you are just a screen name ( Except Gentry told me on the Yakima run that he actually met you)

I am an absolute go for Saturday - and Sunday if a strong maybe -

So I guess majority rules.

Maybe a quick vote by all?

Great idea Johnny...just what I need....MORE paperwork


j/k


Yeah, I guess Ill take that on since I started the thread??

We'll miss ya Johnny! A DS ride near Darrington just isnt the same without the sound a Sybil nut-slap!



Oh yeah, the weather is supposed to be the best on saturday. Not that I care a whole lot but a GS will likely be more fun on drier dirt.... Im sure all will be fine no matter what.

Monday might be an option too......

Dudes, please don't wait around for me. There will be plenty of rides that we can hook up for. I can't do Saturday. So, if it happens Sunday, I'll be there. Otherwise, another time.

But I do appreciate the effort on my behalf!!!

Howdy All,

I have just become aware of this up-coming ride. "UNLESS" conditions have changed radically since my last crossing of Rat Trap Pass ( August of last year ) it should be easily doable on the big bikes.

You can NOT get to the forest service road that leads to RTP from Granite Falls, the Mountain Loop Hwy. is still washed out. You have to get to it from the Darrington side.

I have a suggestion when it comes to a meeting place and or breakfast, "Broosters" in down town Arlington has better food then Dennys and is on the way to Darrington and all points north and east. No I don't have the address, it's located about half way down the main street of town, here's a photo of the place, you can't miss it.

That's my R1, in the middle of the pack, we had breakfast here on our way up to the "Holy Smoke" for lunch.

Keep me in the loop for this ride. Oh, what is with you guys and these EARLY starts, I need my rest and beauty sleep to keep up with you youngsters Could we start later and play longer I am up for doing this ride on any day but would prefer to do it when it's not pouring rain with that thought in mind, is summer ever going to come to the Nor-Wet this year

Toby,

Airing those Tourances down to 22# or so should make a big difference, especially if its wet.

Cya in Monterey!
