    ....and if only "Joined in 2014".....really meant JP'sKate has been here a while. We will take it easy on you, lady! I've even accommodated those that spin, "Eat It" and are meat haters....with a non-meat option.

    Oh there are a lot of places I could go with that statement. :lol3 But I will be good.

    I should be up there around noonish on Thursday to keep an eye on Norm and make sure he does not get into too much trouble.

    This is the rig if you need to bring something to me. :lol3

    If you're in Brighton, go north instead of through Denver, much nicer ride, anyway.:ricky

    There's already a WetFest up in the Pacific NorthWest, just to point out the obvious. We've had a few WestFests that were... um... MoistFests?

    I thought life was supposed to get simpler when you retire?! that's the most confusing & fun conundrum you have on your hands -- good luck sorting. (My money is on the GS). :thumb

    Everyone.....double check your meals.

    Marty.....you were there last year.....is your memory failing you????? I don't think moist did the weather description any justice at all. I remember riding all day in rain and I remember coming back to camp and seeing tents in 6" of water. Gunnison doens't usually get that kind of rain, but the weekend found a cold front moving through and it rained, and rained and rained...... It was so miserable, Tyler and I went home a day early.

    Steamboat is similar to Gunny in regard to weather. Unless a weather front moves through....we should have outstanding weather at the KOA basecamp. Now...up in the mountains where everyone will be riding......you should expect to get a little wet between noon and 4pm with localized showers.

    Previous events have provided some fun in the mud!!!!!
