information gathering thread for joshua tree national park ride!

ok! we have riders that can't do some days... others that prefer days over other days.... i want ALL my new BF friends to be able to come

now you's all know i prefer saturday.... but jason prefers sundays....... but tracy needs them to be saturday! and apparently fixer, too! but i WANT JASON to come, too!

several dates have been picked already for other rides... or for oranized rides...

we want it in the fall... but not winter (really.. it DOES get cold up here in the winter!! BRRRRRR)

i was thinking nov 4th (or 5th) but i think someone already picked that for another ride?

how about trying for the 11th? (jason... that's a holiday weekend... veteran's day! do you get that weekend off?)

anyways... don't mark any calendars yet! plus we have to wait for miss sugar shorts to get back! (i know she can't do it thanksgiving weekend!)

if we don't get it in before december... i think we may wait until next mark! (miss early bird rider doesn't ride til later in the day in dec, jan, feb to give it a chance to warm up! and it's cooler in the park cuz it's higher!)

input, please ladies and gents!!!!!

I definitely would like to do this ride. November is a long way off... either weekend is open at the moment. Sat or Sun makes no difference to me.

we would plan october.... but it's kind of all filled up... PLUS... we need to have brandy there! and she's out of commission til at least the end! (and the 28th is taken with OCW fall metric!)

i wasn't going to post... but it seems like other rides keep popping up so i wanted to at least get some info... and maybe a tentative date!!!!!

once we have that nailed down... we can decide if it will be an out and back (mostly in the park) or a loop (including the highway!)

Well, I can take most any Saturday off that I want to take off. It's just that if a pattern of taking lots of Saturdays off emerges, it looks really bad. The 11th is good because it's a good chunk of time after Extort and OC's ride, but a decent amount of time before Thanksgiving. And it happens to be a "holiday" weekend, too, making it a bit more understandable that someone would take the day off.

If it gets moved to the 4th, though, I would do my best to make it.

Friday? Umm... that would be extremely tough. And what month are you talking about? You mean Friday, Nov 10?

We love the desert! For us, Saturdays are generally better except during soccer season 'cause our daughter plays. That will last until December if the team does well. Sundays are harder since we would have to drive back to Agoura. Do we have a long weekend in there someplace? I think we get a Friday for Veteran's Day at my workplace rather than a Monday.

If we wait long enough, we may as well meet up at TdPS in Feb.!

veteran's day and thanksgiving are the long weekends....... but brandy is gone thanksgiving weekend.... december... it starts to be too cold to be able to leave at a decent time...

(columbus day in oct... but brandy is out of commission then too!)

it will take you about 3 hours with no traffic from agoura! maybe even a little bit less!

Unless you work for the government I don't think anyone gets Veterans' Day off.

Cali...I'd like to do this as I love JT, maybe I'll stick around and rock climb the next day.

That said, are you going to want to start at dawn? I suppose it really doesn't matter since Brandy will soon post that I'm not invited
