    It was great getting together with you guys last night. We should make that a monthly event, especially over the winter months. I have the WA, UT, and CO Backcountry Discovery DVDS and maps i would be willing to bring down if MotoMedic will show them. One a month over the winter months perhaps?

    Why We Ride will be released tomorrow on DVD, my order has been placed. :D Soon as I have it, we'll put it up on the big screen at the Handlebar. Since I'll be gone from the 23rd thru till Jan 10th or so, it'll either be before then, or afterwards. I'm hoping before. I'll keep you posted.

    And yeah, 5 guys in all showed last night, A19, AHBruce, WU7X and Gearhead and his buddy Randy. A few beers were drunk, some food consumed and some lies were told. :evil We missed you there, Ladybug.

    So Ladybug never showed up? I hope everything is ok.

    I'm glad I finally made it. Per the original directions I headed north on Pines then went east on Trent. By the time I got to Houser I figured something was wrong and turned around. :rofljk.

    Was good to chat with you guys. It's cool spot for types like us.

    I thought I heard someone say they have a Harley that doesn't leak oil.

    So I remember one of you was asking about a Ulysses and I've got a guy here wants to sell his. PM me for details.

    Sorry I didn't make it all is well. I had every intention of showing up but by about 5:00 pm I was fading fast and the idea of going out into the dark cold night didn't appeal to me.

    Week nights really don't work well for me since I get up for work so early I go to bed super early. For me to go out at 6:00 pm is similiar to someone getting off work at 5:00 pm and going out at 10:00 pm when they have to work the next day.

    I like the idea of a month get together at the Handle Bar.

    Motomedic, how are Fri. early evenings around there. Would we be able to do a Fri. at 6:00 pm type of thing. Would that work for the rest of you?

    That sounds like a fun time. My daughter hits the hay around 6ish and I can sometimes convince the wife that I should have a life outside of work and child rearing (but not often).

    Hauser is frozen over, not very thick though. lots of stress cracks, nobody fishing on it yet. News did say a deer was rescued from Newman Lake recently, rescuers had to use a boogie board to get to it.

    Thought I would share one of my videos from our recent trip to Copper Canyon, Mexico. This is the road from Morelos to Batopilas. Here's the link to the trip report.

    So, according to Amazon I should have my copy of Why We Ride soon. We're looking at Dec 17, a Tuesday as the night to show it at the Handlebar on our 14x9 projector screen. Should be a fun evening.

    Can't talk you into a Fri. evening or during the weekend. I just can't do a week night unless you want to do it at about 4:00 PM.
