    Update 5/1:
    Attention Paddlers! Please be ready to go Saturday morning at 10:30! Looks like the forecast has eased-up a bit for that day, so we may get lucky.

    Update 4/29:
    Come prepared for a few showers, folks. Not to worry though...Brad has enclosed the entire patio, so there's enough room under there for everyone, inflatable or otherwise. It is "Adventure Rider", right... C'mon you won't melt, and it'll keep the dust down.
    :hide

    Update 4/29 Part 2 electric boogalloo:
    Paddling tips: Wear nothing that you mind getting wet. Bring nothing that can get wet...cameras, wallets, bras, etc. Wear shoes that will stay on...aqua socks, tevas, tennies etc.
    Good news: We won't need to bring the canoes up the Hill of Fear and Torment. We'll leave them at the Stumptown brewery, have a cold one, then it's a short hoof back the the Roadhouse.

    Update 4/24:
    Great news! Jason from The Motorcycle Shop (formerly Moto Meccanica) will be bringing a lift, compressor and tools for all your wrenching needs and the inevitable flat/busted this/bent that. Also, maybe a Baja-ready XR for ooglin'!
    So c'mon...SIGN UP! There's still time!

    Update 4/22:
    I'm seeing about fifty. I'm scheduling staff for 50, ordering the canoes and next week I'll be ordering food for those who have paid. If you are lurking or fence sitting...time to commit. If ya ain't paid, we're not sure you're coming so I ain't ordering yer ribeye and yer share of a pile o shrimp. Get it?
    Pool is ready.
    10 days!!!!! WHOOOOT!
    ...Tiny

    Update 4/19:
    For your viewing pleasure, our own Pete Corboy AKA Petefromberkeley will present a slide show that chronicles his 65k mile ride around the world on an Airhead. After dinner on Saturday sit back, relax and hear all about crazy 2-wheeled adventures in far away lands. Pete's ridden through more countries that end in "-stan" than most of us know guys named 'Stan'. Q and A, snide remarks and heckling to follow.

    Update 3/26:
    Alrighty folks...with a bit more than a month to go, we really need to start figuring-out how many will be joining us. Specifically, we need an accurate number of people in the paddling party. (And yes, you should canoe with us!). Please register asap with one of the methods listed below so we can settle with the canoe outfit, start purchasing supplies and gauging staff.
    Thanks again,
    Josh
