    I'd be interested in the Olympic griptwister adventure at the end of August.

    Maybe I can be organized enough by then....Speaking of organization for such a tour....maybe a few of you who are experienced with this adventure could itemize some of your preparations so I could have a better chance of making the trip a success. Something like...
    Bike: GPS, knobbies, tool kit essentials, flat repair kit....
    Comfort: tent, sleeping bag, food, stove, fuel....
    What do you think?

    Sounds like you pretty much got it all except "Flask, jerky, flashlight, Clif Bars, clean-undies and rain gear." August should be lovely and reasonably mild I think.


    Im a definite maybe

    Okay then fellow adventure riders.... let's do it again!! And for the record, it didn't rain the whole time on May's ride, just the whole second day!! Yeah, we got a wee bit wet then...

    Anyways, August has to be much nicer, right?? So here's the chance for those of you who for one reason or another couldn't make the original ride to have a go with a group, and for those who were in attendance last time to do it again in short-sleeve weather! No excuses excepted.

    Hey Dave,

    Can you confirm the dates on this? Your website says the 26th thru the 28th, which makes it Friday thru Sunday, but the blurb says to meet Saturday in Shelton.

    Can you set us straight??

    Really, I don't think it's so much to want in a woman: Tall, skinny, chesty, beautiful, Incredible eyes, smart, chesty.

    That's all I really want.
