Probably not the whole time, but I've got those days off from work and was thinking of heading out to meet some of you kids... Greyhound's pretty cheap if I order a week in advance, but I know I won't have enough money to get myself a hotel... But I could probably kick someone some beers or some Jameson....
Anyone got some floor space for a drunken brakeless rider? Anyone got some time to show me around the town? Good stuff to do while I'm there? I guess I'd miss your CM, which I've wanted to check out, but that's cool. Maybe some other time
I'm just taking the days off because I'm kind of burned out at work, and I have 144 hours of vacation I need to burn by the end of the year. If I don't use it, it goes back down to 40 next year, and we just finally got back up to 3 shifts of people in my dept so I don't have to worry about how bad things are going to be if I take more than 2-3days off at a time. I figure I might as well do something with the time rather than just sitting around here and riding the same trails...
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me out - I really need to get out of this town for a bit...
Oh, and answers here or by PM or an email to jeremy.werst at gmail.com are cool...
I'll have to check with the roomies, but I should be able to put you up for
a day or two during the week. I should also be able to take a day off
during the week if you wanna ride. Hooky day, anyone?
You should try to make it for CM if you're coming down, though.
Well I got another couple of days off, so I could head out on Thurs the 25th or Friday the 26th - probably taking the Amtrak since it's not much more than the bus and probably lets me just take the bike on without taking it apart.
Would getting there at about 4pm on Fri give me enough time to hit CM, or should I figure on trying for Thurs?
I'm thinking I'd probably head back Wed morning, which would be the 31st, but that's flexible...

The night of the 27th is also the Midnight Marauders ride. So that is something else you can check out while in town. I'd offer up my couch but my pit bull has this thing about guys. He loves the ladies but can do without guys he does not already know. . .
I can put you up Sat/Sun. Fred (monkey), you said the week, can you get Jeremy somewhere warm either for Friday or maybe the Monday and Tuesday nights? Ira (Ira in Chi) said he could help out too and so can Tristan (teadoggg) so check with those guys or let 'em post up here too.
There's also a BBQ Birthday Party Sunday night you'll be dragged too if you're crashing at mine Sunday.
I'm doing Mass along with everyone else so we can all meet up Friday and whatnot. We'll sort stuff out.
Looking forward to also meeting up with Jasonsan at CM. Who else is down?
My couch is available for a few days, though there's really nothing right by my house and it may be a bit scary coming home real late if we aren't out together. Just let me know. Also down for CM. Meet @ Cal's around 5, have a few and head down? Oytie?
i could do monday and/or tuesday night, i live pretty close to downtown. you may or may not find the area obnoxious. hereNT you would basically be on your own, as i will only be home to sleep both those nights.
