    Actually, I have been starting the process of putting together a November ride, most things should be open before the 15th... I was thinking non-plated friendly, since I have some local friends and a niece who aren't plated/licensed. I was thinking Millwood... Is there interest?

    Hi gang,

    I missed your last group ride, but hope to catch the next one. November could work, depending on the date for me as well. Nov. 1st I can't, and the weekend of the 8th I am in LA. Otherwise, I could be there! Cheers, Matt

    There is only two landing spots ... one up near the lake on cheapo saddle rd and the other is down in town at the urgentcare parking lot... or maybe here at this intersection I put a smoldering fire out at..

    Maybe we should start a new thread and post about in the BAARC thread so more people can know about it. Hesaid, since you did such a great job last time; I'll leave you the honor of doing that :D

    Been talking to the Forest Service people, early November is looking good. Unfortunately, that kinda means the 8th-9th, which someone already mentioned wasn't good. I'm thinking Millwood, plenty of opportunities for all types, low enough to avoid most early season snow. Only thing with planning this time of year is that weather can change everything in a couple hours. I'll start putting some ideas together and try to get something posted up this week.

    I never try to out guess the weather. Except maybe yesterday. But mainly, I was already planning a Millwood trip for the same time frame, for some locals without plates. Seems like it ought to be a two birds/one stone type thing. Plus, if I'm going to be trailering something somewhere, Millwood is closer. For those coming from the north, around Pine Flat and then up the dirt should be a good ride. I just hope they ease the fire restrictions.

    I'm in Death Valley the 7-9th so I can't make it.

    However, a place that might have some snow sounds kinda fun (says the guy with the camper with a good heater...).

    Millwood? sure Millwood would be a great place for part II Central Sierra Noob ride...Except that Millwood is NOT in the central Sierra...it's actually in the Northernmost part of the Giant Sequoia National Monument!:wink:
    That said, Hesaid, I guess you could call it the Northern Sequoia Noobs ride? November you say? My DR. realease papers say October 27th i'm good to go...:freaky:1drink:dealThis is right in my backyard, so I'm IN!

    start a thread start a thread start a thread start a thread:lol3
