    so say it the flock!
    good to hear from the clergy....what can i say i'm a heratic.
    but for The REV. SUNDAY IT IS! (beside if it wasn't for you, i wouldn't be making an ass of myself on here :D)

    so i'll continue with my leap of faith and drive on with the SUNDAY morning thing at the SPAR. 7:00 AM everyweekend.

    I was kinda hoping the 7th would work best...

    We've got the North Sound MAG next Thursday and I'll need to let my liver dry out a little bit... :1drink

    I am chiming in for the 1st Since you will be in stomping grounds for once.
    Bring a big dually and be ready for a gravel road run in the capitol forest between breakfast and lunch.

    Have we picked a firm date yet? April 7th, 14th or 15th are all good days.

    Breakfast at Spar at 7:00AM (damn, that's early for us mid-sounders! :loco) followed by lunch at Fish Brewing around 1:30?! :clap

    If someone wants to lead a ride between breakfast and lunch, please jump in and lay it out! Maddaddy had some great ride ideas and so long as he can make one of the dates let's let him start the dialogue! Cool?

    Okay, who's in???

    I'll also post a link in the Mid- and North-Sound MAG posts to try and inspire more Riders to join in...

    7:00 is the time i'll be there along with any other early birds. helps claim prime parking. i don't expect to ride until 9:00 at the earliest. but we'll see which way the wind blows. i have two routes planned. one with light forest roads, one without . both are around 200 and change. figure 5 to 6 hours in the saddle with stopping to smell the flowers included.

    If the weather isn't too miserable, I'm going to try and make it for breakfast. I'm guessing that it'd take me an hour to get there...you'd see me around 8:XX o'clock. Don't eat all the hashbrowns!

    I need to put some miles on the new rubber.

    Anyone up here want to head down with me?

    Okay, think sun! :thumb

    By the way, I'm still shooting for a date in April, too!
