Mille Lacs ride..Where are we at?

OK, let's get a roll call going here to see who is seriously going to come up for this. I need to figure out housing and all that!

Caincando1, I'll bet you're out

v1k1ng, where you at? You've been gone a while...you didn't go to Texas, did you?

Everyone else... let me know. It's OK if you come last minute, but I can't guarantee anything unless get the group site, which I don't want to do if noone is going to come!

Roll Call!

solveg: I'm going to be there.

Not if I can help it. I was really looking forward to attempting the 70 mile ride. I'll see how the next couple weeks go. If all goes well, I'll probably just ride the 30 mile route. But unfortunately I won't be able to give you a definate answer right now.

I'm in. Hopefully 70 miles, but not if I'm the only one.

I just got back from canoing the Boundary Waters last week. Let me assess the situation tomorrow, when my faculties have returned to me.

I don't know if you can come! You have a really scary avatar!

We're planning to go on the Mille Lacs ride in Sept. There's a thread here called "Ride Suggestion", or just do a search for Mille Lacs....

Well, I don't really have a car right now, let alone a rack. But I can probably commandeer a mini van for the trip.

I just washed all of my camping gear so it's ready to go.

The wife just started a new p/t, second job, working at a bridal store so she will be working that weekend. So if I come up, I'll be flying solo. Let me work out the details with the better half, and I'll keep you all posted.

Bah... I keep posting in the wrong thread!

I'm coming up Thursday night to meet a friend of mine - we'll spend Friday afternoon/evening and Sat morning together. Then lake stuff Sat-Sun to mesh with everyone else's schedule.
