    Hey Folks.

    Had a small turnout. Just Jonathon and myself. Had a great time discussing bikes, and beer, and children, and search and rescue, and a bunch of other things I can't remember. Hope to see you all again in December.

    Ideas?

    Cheers

    Kevan

    The company was good, the food and drink were good too. It wasn't cold at all. I think that there was some significant false advertising.

    I wish I could get to more of these.

    I'll be back . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . someday. I promise. I bet even Tami's shown up more than me in the last year.

    Just got into this thread... I lived in the east bay (San Ramon and Walnut Creek) for 25 yrs but am now in Mt View. A weekend meet would be great - I’d like to join you even tho I’m not in the East Bay anymore..

    No geographical restrictions. We are actually a group that gets together monthly for food and beer, normally on the second Tuesday or Wednesday of each month, but it can be variable. We haven't done weekend meets in the four years I've been going to these. We have talked about doing a Sunday meet once or twice.

    That said, you are absolutely welcome to show up at any meets. It's a good group of folks to waste a few hours with every month.

    LOL - a couple months or so back it was just me on my on-ei-o :lol3 was moar beer for me!

    Seems like a few of us going to noobs rally so we should hook up before to see about ideas on ride down. I have a route I always take and a couple routes I want to take - yet I digress...

    Any interest in December of doing something different - like Sushi House in Alameda on Shoreline? Good food, good portions. Beer. The website sucks but they have a patio and its a nice location.

    Edit: December 13th ??? (a freaking Wednesday please). Just an Idea...

    We can test blow up some tubes with my huge c02 canisters!

    I would like to join you guys as I’m going to the DV NooBs Rally and don’t know many ppl here. I’m going on a BDR-Like ride to Cabo and back first 2 weeks of December... after that I’m good, assuming I’m still in one piece

    I'll be off climbing in the jungle in a socialist dictatorship on 12/13 but I'd be available this weekend... (plus my birthday is 12/10). :jkam

    Sacramento? :lol3:lol3:lol3

    Wed/Thurs are the only days that work though. Have to hoard time as next year busy.

    I bought a big honking DV relief map out at REI so hoping Marty/others can do some orientation points on some of the trails for noobs. If not this month perhaps next. Tired or riding through Trona at night - so idea for noobs I will take off Wed AM and weather permitting up 178 to 14 over to Trona/Panamints on thurs AM. It's motivation to get my spare set of wheels up and running as I need tires and that's one of a long long list of things to do to the scooter.

    A Radical Idea?

    Hey Gang.

    How crazy does this sound? We try for a Thursday, if for no other reason than Matt might be able to join in?

    Say, Thursday, December 21 (*) at the Up and Under Pub in Richmond. http://www.theupandunder.com/

    The usual 6:30. Be safe. Be warm.

    Peace

    Kevan

    (* I believe this is the first official day of Winter, so only the toughest/craziest will be on MC's. I will probably drive)
