Sadly I will not be riding this weekend. The heat is not playing well with my COPD.

@Lascauxcaveman, I have room in my car for you and a bike, and we have carpooling experience! I plan to leave Seattle before noon.
Dave, just yell at Tim on the drive. He'll get the message.

Sunk cost. No need to join that lunacy when good times and good friends are just a few hours away.

Anybody feel free to PM if you've already booked but have room, or want to book a room and split it.
Shoot, I booked a single room just a few hours ago (Pullman) for Friday and Saturday nights. Didn't know I'd need the available double, so didn't get it

David is a gentleman and would never raise his voice Sign language (or texting) is quicker.

I think I'm set with David on the carpooling and I might be splitting a room with Doc if he can get an upgrade. If that fails, maybe DD can try the same. Other than that, tenting is OK or I can sleep under your Magic Bus. Obviously, I'm too cheap to get whole room to myself.

If you get really desperate you can fold down the seats in my SUV and set up a sleeping bag there. I actually considered doing that before I found that Dfrost had a room he was willing to split with me.

OK, between David and Doc, looks like I'm officially all squared away with a ride and room we'll see you all there at the park Friday night. @Andy_K, you have to show me your rig in fold-down configuration; I'm thinking about making my next motor vehicle purchase in the direction of a mini-sleeper type of thing for short term camping and didn't want to get a full sized van.

Thanks for your help, guys.

I'm not going to be there.
Finally, found out why I had family resistance.
There's a surprise birthday party for me (days early), now in the dogge house.

Really sorry to miss you, Doc. The other guys I'll miss sharing an experience with, but they are all almost neighbors.

Probably best given temps.
Have fun, be safe.
Looking forward to pics of white tires.


Water on your head to stay cool.

I was riding recently with two friends who are married and the husband was saying he didn't want to have a party for his birthday. His wife informed him, "It's not all about you. We're having a party."

What's a man to do???
Family dynamics = at times, It's Complicated.
I'm told I should be more appreciative.
How can you appreciate what you don't know is planned???
And stands between participating in the

That's analogous to the theory that there is no such thing as a family vacation. It's a family outing if you bring the kids, no vacation.

Gotta say I'm getting excited for this. Leaving early in the morning and looking forward to seeing everyone. Saturday bike, Sunday bike and one for my brother. While I love the Spectrum it's just a little too tall so my brother gets to use it.

You've got some pretty cool bikes, Scott. It'll be good to ride with you again. Thanks for organizing this thang.

I'll probably be riding the Grandis, even though the drive train is a bit of a mess. If the clicking and popping is too much for anyone, they'll either have zoom ahead of me or fall back out of earshot.

I’ve got ice that survived the drive from Seatte in an insulated bag.
@scozim,
Should we have our lunches for tomorrow at the park tonight, or just bring them tomorrow morning?

And will there be any water (and ice!) stops along the route tomorrow?

Should we build our own cue sheets from the route instructions you provided earlier in this thread? Some of us might not be so near the front end of this group.

Thanks for doing this. Looking forward to it, even if it will be a touch warm.

Where are you camping Roger? Want us to come make a cold beer delivery?
