    they should be on page 1 if not, i will update it.

    we will have 4 gas grill, 1 - jimmy, 2 - cathy, 1 - joel

    i have 2 lpg tanks, we may need 2 more, or a couple to run 2 grills with one tank.

    EVERYONE HAS TO BRING THEIR OWN FORK, UTENSILS AND CUP (all of us already have these)

    paper plates, bowls (chili) and paper towels are needed. i can pick them up.

    i think we still have the serving and cooking utensils from last year. will check.

    thanks greg. got them.

    are all those IN the veggie dinner paid up (ersin's IN list)? if not, those who haven't paid, i don't need nor want to collect $ from them, request them donate their money to the TRASH FUND and/or SOS.

    life is a lot simpler for me having you guys and others.....:feelgood

    Since Slugdad is listed twice on the Sat. Cerro Gordo Salt Trams ride does this mean there is an open spot? If so I would like to join this ride.

    All the Veggie diners are in green on the master list so I presume they are paid up.

    I arrived last night in Scott's Valley, Ca after riding all day. Today, I am having my Wilbur's WESA Shocks installed at The Beemer Shop. :wings

    I had a great ride up the coast, but I got a late start, so I did not ride up the 1 the whole trip. Check out my spot page for the track.

    C U in DV...

    I can bring a dual burner Coleman camping stove and an LPG bottle. I won't know until later whether I'll have space to bring some wood.

    The Friday Hunter-Mtn Lippincott ride has filled up, and I made space for a couple more. If we get much more interest, we could potentially split into two groups if we have another willing ride leader. I'll be asking for folks to rotate sweep duty throughout the ride so everyone gets a chance to ride their own pace.

    I am a bit concerned about the larger bikes on the ride, so I will be sending out a PM to those folks, to see if they are aware of the challenges of taking a bigger bike down Lippincott. Anything much bigger than a 650 might be challenging on Lippincott, and slow in other sections of the ride. This is a fairly long ride, so keeping up a good pace will be essential if we want to get back to camp in time for dinner.

    I will be down there the Saturday before on the 23rd I will take my time riding it, If its to hard for me or I don't have a good pace - I will bow out. I am hoping to ride it once before the rally though. Anyone else out there early?

    We have the same issue on the Saturday Cerro Gordo ride. At least one of the big bikes I'm aware of are pretty green and that is not the ride to learn technical offroad on with a big bike.

    We are going to have to make about three groups out of ours. Some need to re-think or do an abreviated route. I have some ideas for an alternate for bigger bikes on our ride. Going out to the trams may not be do-able for some. They can still see Cerro Gordo and ride down to Saline.

    Oh wait...you're one of the ride leaders. :D You get to herd some cats.

    We went up Lippincott last year and it wasn't too bad. But that was Johngil and I on the Husky 630's. I wouldn't have wanted to be there on my Tiger. Going down is probly a little easier, but still a lot of loose rock and some steps. It can get washed out from rain too. All depends on how many 4x4's tramp it down. This is also not a place for noobs to learn big bike handling on tough terrain. It's a LONG way from camp. Ask Macadamia. :evil

    peter doesn't let grass grow under his feet....:lol3


    we are good with the 4 commercial grills, but still bring yours to make your coffee and breakfast at your campsite. we have to borrow the LPG tank before dinner. thanks anthony.

    nevertheless, we still need 2 volunteers, each one to haul 1/2 truck bed of wood.
