How about an excursion to the unexplored land in quest for a new sail or other piraty parts instead of the Sunday morning ride:

I think it would be fun. I'd have to think about it a little more, but I could maybe drive about 4 peops. It's near Fredneck, sorta.

If we go, we should consider having some room for parts to bring back...

I could drive, too.

The meeting is from 9am (when we should be there) to 2pm. I would guess it's either l'n'c or swap.

So that swap thing looks interesting if anyone has room for a bum leg pirate.

P.S. Did not find g-d in Utah.

Booger, you were visiting your many wives in utah, eh? I'll have room for a pirate polygamist in the good ship honda accord if you like. I'll firm things up tomorrow, whether I'm a go or no.

Spud, is there anyway you could get closer, say rosslyn/court house? Rest-on is out there. I was thinking 9 departure at the earliest...

1. Swap meet, wow, any room for 1 more? Actually, we can take my car too, and I have the roof racks on so we can bring back 2 whole bikes.

2. Which place is Burito Bro's? CTown?

Swap meet: who's in fer real, so we know how many drivers are needed. and when do people want to leave, realistically now? oily weiner jokes aside.

I can take 4 people max, and that's with someone sitting in the middle. I have a trunk, no roofrack. but i'm not planning on buying a whole bike. hopefully, just a new/used saddle.

Let's say, anyone who wants to ride with me, I can pick you up from rosslyn metro stop at 9am, so as to avoid me getting lost picking people up. I'll drop people off wherever afterward. Is that amenable to anyone?

I'm in and I would say we should be there as early as possible (9:00-9:30 but no later then 10).
