    Wow. Every time I think that it can't get any better, it does. Big thanks to Brad, Josh, and the Roadhouse staff for treating us like the royalty that we certainly are not, for keeping our bellies full, and for never letting our glasses stay empty. You guys are the best! :bow:slurp:dg
    The company was great, too. To any and all that missed out...............well......you really missed out. :deal

    To quote JStory (loud and proud) "This definitely DOES NOT suck!!"

    *edit*

    All of my pics but one look just like Scottmac's. :lol3

    At least I managed to take one of my sweetie and her new bike.

    Thanks Brad, Josh, and your great crew! Had a great time! The food and friends always makes for a great riding event! And if any of you guys ride through the
    Mt. Shasta area, looking for alternative road, drop me a line.

    Where do I start...

    They STARVED us damn near to death...

    I damn near died of dehydration...

    Crappy weather...

    Loud and obnoxious people...

    Geeze.... where the hell can a guy have a good time..

    I guess it'd have to be at Rio Nido!!!

    I had a BLAST... I probably put on 5 lbs due to excess of everything INCLUDING fun. Great place to hang out.

    My ONLY bitch would be the 104 degrees I saw on the way home. Treadless and I had a great slalom ride through the north bay and then the near oppressing heat south of Salinas (but a 40 mph tail wind).

    Oh, one more bitch... where did all the birds come from? I have bird crap all over my tent! They even managed to crap on it after I took the rain fly off yesterday morning! Ah nature...

    Thanks Brad, Josh and staff for a well needed weekend of fun and relaxation. It was so nice to see folks I hadn't seen in years (and those I have)!!!

    Glad that I got out there for at least one evening. Hopefully, my timing will be a little better for the next one.
