    Just made the second deposit - with all your tee-shirt money. Which mean's if we don't get somemore FF's to sign up, all your tee orders are going on my credit card along with the beer. And that's gonna make me a grumpy HDIC. :dog

    Now that we've got the whining out of the way, the vote is in on color and this year, unfortunately for some of you big guys, the vote is black. So, you'll have to go long sleeve and wear it in the winter. (DM me if you want to change to a LS).

    Which of course brings me to beer.

    I'm not sure why, other than eventually most everything brings me to beer. Or drives me to it. (insert Tom T. Hall "I like Beer" lyrics)

    We have, courtesy of Conestogaman :clap, his sublimely righteous stout again and I have one more homebrew offer that I'm working to confirm.

    So, assuming that we'll buy at least 2 more kegs, what is your pleasure:

    1) Red
    2) White
    3) Rose

    Just kidding,

    1) Red Ale
    2) Pale Ale
    3) IPA
    4) Blonde (no, the beer stupid)
    5) Bud (snowball's chance in hell of this one, but just to keep it interesting)


    Vote now, strong arm your friends, and let's get on with the show!
    Or they will miss this

    and this

    and quite possibly even this:

    My vote is for Sequoia Red:
    "A classic American Amber Ale, this beer balances a variety of malts with a blend of German hops. With its distinctive copper color and caramel flavors, this beer is unforgettable and "Giantly Delicious".

    HOLY FUCK BALLS

    There are ONLY 38 people singed up?:eek1

    Yeah, may as well just take all that beer and shirt money now.
    Cancel the Saturday dinner.

    Then start asking for donations.

    Then slowly just start upping the participation fee's. :lol3

    DAMN. This is NUTS!

    Relax, they'll all chime in April 17th or so. :1drink

    The original WARPED was only about a dozen peeps, IIRC.

    I am going to ride in, I don't think I have ever trucked to WARPED. The ride to and from the rally is a significant part of the rally, to my mind.
    Especially this one.
    You'd be hard pressed to find a route better suited for Adventure bikes. Jawbone-Kelso valley on the way there, Bodfish-Caliente on the way home. You want to drive a truck on those roads? Are you kidding me? :D

    I'm bringing the Jeep with an off road camper so I'm not worried. :deal

    But I actually have to trailer this year as I want the whole family there and little man is still too small to go in a side car.

    I want you to bring up that bad ass Bronco for msbianca to drool over... :freaky

    I like to ride there, man.

    I'd love to take my Bronco up there, just not for WARPED. :D

    No Shit! We are all going to be camping with families and kids if we don't get some more FF's to sign up. Not that it's going to bother you, but I'll get the "can you keep those guys quieter please" and "can you please stop it with the foul language" and "for crying out loud it's 3-a-f'ing-clock in the morning, will you f'ing outlaws please go to bed" notices. God help us if they call the cops. There's probably enough warrents out to lose a third of the attendees.

    I need a significant amount of "in's" by the 15th or I start releasing campsites. :deal

    So hop to it and lean on the regulars

    :whip

    "Saturday night the WARPED reserved area is closed to all non participating people. There is no flexibility on this subject. Friends are welcome to stop by during the day say &#8220;Hi&#8221; or to connect with participants for a ride. Long term hanging out is frowned upon and may result in being introduced to Team Doom."

    Can you please explain why this is in the first post?
    Has there been an issue?

    Seems like that may not seem exactly "welcoming" to some folks... :D

    See, we pay for all the food, n beer n shit for Saturday night. We don't want people coming in and mooching off our shit. If they want to come, and drink beer and eat, they can pay. :deal It costs a lot of money to put this event on and if people don't pay, it doesn't happen. So no, we don't welcome people who aren't paying.


    This has been the rule for at least the past five WARPED. I don't know how it was before that.


    We welcome all paying FF's!! :clap :clap
