    Life gets busy and suddenly a month goes by and this thread nearly dies :grim

    950A needs to get out for some fun :ricky

    Was thinkin' about a quick overnite ride-n-camp this weekend, but probably not in the cards :bluduh

    How about a just a day ride to Big Bear or :dunno

    Sat or Sun both still open :deal

    More likely something you are likely to say that will make everyone cringe :dirtdog

    As a favor to me, try saving the R rated banter for the WARPed thread, m'kay :deal

    I'm on many of the Facebook sites that pertain to the mountains. No one is complaining of smoke that lives up there. The wind is blowing in the other direction.

    Highway 18 has reopened. The fire is 85 per cent contained.

    You shouldn't have any issues with smoke on your ride.

    Looks like Dave (DSM8) is out with family/pet obligations.
    I am still up for ride, but doesn't need to be Big Bear and doesn't need to be Saturday.

    Open to suggestions :ear
