Thumb WARP the abridged version

Due to work etc this was probably the shorted WARPed weekend I ever had. Rode out and got there late on Saturday afternoon.

  • Took the 138/14 route - wont do that again
  • Had the spaghetti plate at Sheryl's Diner would recommend it
  • Get to camp and find the HDIC is out someplace, apparently broke a motorcycle he borrowed from someone. I am sure stories will follow.
  • After the raffle got to have dinner with Kathy, Mike, Matt and several others. Made for a great end to a long day. Sure is fun to make Kathy blush, apparently it is the mention of a reach around that does it...

    Get back to camp and find a snake coiled up in the middle of the floor
Funny thing was I had made a joke of this earlier in the evening I thought someone over heard it and stuck one in. Nope, it was real....


Rode home Sunday, no pictures or such just some good memories from an all too short weekend.

me thinks it was the "double reach around" that did it.

Yea I do and its for driving. It was better for me to languish in bed for a few days. I did get out on the Speed Triple on Sunday for a short ride and it was lovely but I could tell that was about all my body could take

heh. when I went to sleep saturday night, camp was pretty quiet, and there was STILL some of that double stout left from Friday night. muahahahaha. other kegs got emptied in due course. there was no shortage of beer.

When we do this again, we really should find someone down there who can cater a proper BBQ, even if it costs more.


anyways, haven't done much other than sleep 12 hours last night, unpack my bike, and unload my camera.

I didn't take any pics coming or going, I just rode. had a good ride both ways. dry and warm but not too hot, which is always a win-win.

Awesome time, thanks again to Bill and helping organizers, and beer suppliers.


Hints to the slide show: make your browser window full screen to get the larger pics. From the 2nd pic on you can use the down-arrow to move on (don't know why it won't work on the 1st).

Anyone who is in any of the pics and wants the full file size, just PM me with your e-address and the number of the pic.
I'll get to it before the next ride.

Cheers!

So what was wrong with that prime piece of beef and salads I prepared for you Friday night, or where you not there? Destroying your hosts' awning and all...




Bill and everybody else. Thank you for a great event and your hospitality. Wonderful seeing the old crowd again and meeting some of the new ones.

I was pretty out of it that late. heh. that was a great steak, no doubt, thank you for that. (and Jeff's awning will be replaced asap).

I was just saying, I missed having the community meal with the raffle. kinda tied the whole event together.

Hell of an awesome time guys...so much laughing, drinking and hanging out with friends (new and old) it was another great time. As this was my 2nd warped, I can certainly say that it was the BEST one I've gone to (though the stories [except the naked guy] from the 1st one are more cataclysmic). Thanks to all the idiots who put in the work to make this event work.

Great time!

What an awesome weekend!
Thanks to Bill and all who pitched-in. Nice hanging out with some FF's in a different setting for a change. Campground was super friendly and very nicely kept-up. Pleasure chatting with everyone who put up with my slurry ass.

Til next time.....

Gotta say, I had a great time, and Lisa enjoyed all the drunken banter.

Not much riding this year, but explored in the cage further than any year in the past due to lack of snow. I saw a patch about the size of a mini p/u... Can you say water rationing?

See all you FF's next year.

Is the registration page up yet?







Maybe Gerg will stay a bit longer too...

We got into some more drama on the way home. Came across a crashed rider. We made the news. Sierra News Online

Jeez, you guys just had a big ol' weekend, didn'tcha?


Thanks to Bill and all of the folks who put on this year's WARPED. This one was the best that we've been to. The weather could not have been better had we ordered it, and the company was exemplary. We got to ride some roads that are usually closed by snow, did some great hiking, chatted with friends old and new, and generally had ourselves a great time.
The fact that my wife won a really great Klim gift certificate didn't hurt one bit, either.
