Possible Trip to Spokane!

Well Johnny Law & I have been in touch & if I can get a buddy pass from my friend's dad, I will be taking a four day/three night trip to good ol' Spokane the weekend of April 14th (Friday-Monday)! I don't know how much biking we will be doing because I'm not sure what the weather will be like, but I'm hoping to go MTBing at least once while I'm up there for sure. So if any of you Spokane locals care to meet up for some biking, or even just to have a few drinks, keep in touch! I can't wait to finally see in person what I've been drooling over in pictures for the last few years

dminor draws good maps of the area. But his behavior in public is incorrigible. Seriously the guy goes an extra 10 miles for visitors in my experience. And that is one great locality. Idaho is unlimited for adventures. I hope to go back and visit wineries and slay some trout at the end of a remote single track.

If I can tear you and John away from shredding stuff on motorized dual-sports, maybe we can do some pedalled riding.

I behave poorly in public to make the 'ferreigners' look good by comparison and get better treatment.

Geez, I don't know if John even has any dual-sports anymore, that guy goes through expensive toys like most households do milk & bread. I imagine we'll be doing a fair amount of biking & longboarding, but from the pictures he posts on facebook it looks like he's taken up hiking & general mountain exploring as his main hobby, which okay by me from the scenery that he posts

I'm sure that between you & John's behavior, I'll come out looking like an angel We'll get some biking in together for sure though, I don't think I could bring myself to leave it I didn't shred teh gnarz at least once while I'm up there.

Well it's official, I'm going to Spokane April 13-16! Getting my plane ticket not this Monday but the one after from a friend who's got the buddy pass hook-up (not hard to find former/current employees at the world's Delta hub). With any luck I'll catch a flight around 10am or so, six hour flight with time going 3 hours backwards which would get me there around 1pm. Can't wait!!

(This is assuming my boss doesn't screw me over & deny my time off last minute...in which case I will undoubtedly quit, no joke, been considering just walking out for months now anyway.)
