    Anyone up for a Donner ride this Friday, 11/30?

    While it looked impassable last weekend, we could try to make it over the section from Donner to the end of the Old Ballard road (aka Wilderness trail). It's guaranteed to be a toboggan run down the ice flows on upper Ballard. :vardy The Rowdy section is a definite must.

    I'm a maybe. We're playing motohooky tomorrow.. depending on what time we get done and how far I'm behind because of it..

    a week with two days of motohooky would be just dandy :ricky

    My actions today will precipate a long overdue blizzard. Since it's Donner, pick your most flavorful and tender riding partner. :deal

    Sabotage!

    Not fair Jeff. Fortunately, I would have Ben on my side. He would surely be sporting the latest in uber-secret gear from the Dubinky R&D department. Pants that fold out into a full-heated RV or something like that.. And with his mad skillz, he'd be able to ride out carrying me curled up in the fetal position if it gets too chilly for my fingies and toes.

    Mostly white. Would Donner be a suitable break in?

    I might be in trouble. Somebody slipped a leg over it and declared the standard 990 height to be about the same as a klr of hers.

    Perfek!

    You kids have fun now.


    P.s. I'm still searching for a 2 up for my stolen Dakar, so if you do some 2 up, let me know what you think.
