He will be sent with the Nth wave. From the sounds of it you're goin' sooner. You know Wars on Terrorism can go. Frustrating to know we'll be sending retirees off to fight. Unless the cyberpunk vision of enhanced aging is coming to fruition.

Yes and Yes and Yes. I guess people will have to come to a consensus about if they want to ride, and at what time. Evenings are always better for me, but I don't think that it should revolve around that. Still down for a romp on the spit?

I'll be on my new SS MTB beater for the messy stuff. And yes you may bring beers.

Holy tap-dancing Christ, Jet. Just looked at your GT on Velospace. What an amazingly bazonkerous ride that is. Love it!

Heh, thanks, great word too

It is going to be a real winter blast apparently, maybe I should re-think the gears idea----nothing more fun than trying to unclog your rear derailleur of snow, salt and ice whilst drunk/light-headed.

What is this blast you speak of? I know there are some damned cold temps out west that might be heading here...'www.weathernet......"

*from the weather network"
From Sunday afternoon to Monday afternoon we expect : 10-15 cm of snow.
Feels about -9 with the winds apparently.. let that be lower for spits riding

Was nice to put names to faces. Nice ride as well. Class sucked. Well it's actually really good, but Sat classes, they suck.

SO what's it going to be? Ride tonight or Monday night? Looks like most of the snow will fall overnight, so monday might have the most leftover snow on the spit. I'll leave it up to you guys since I have to work until 5pm today. I'll follow your lead.
