Personally, I just didn't want to wear anything w/ even a chance of catching on the bike/someone else's bike. The whole "don't wear anything that will drive itself into your body on impact" is a valid point too in retrospect.

I guess we can make it Tuesday night. I prefer Monday night. But any night is good for me

We could make the start time earlier like 8 or 9pm.

Let's see what the general consensus is going to be.

It's hard to describe, it's such a cool feeling

it's wierd being up high and looking down to see the floor ten feet below you, kind of an uneasy feeling at first but then you just get used to it.

The more I think about it the more I want to go back, you really need to experience it for yourself to know how it feels.
