I'm indecisive, but most likely out.

FYI, there's the B2B ride that's starting at Encanto the day before (non GMR).

I'll go to the lifts sometime in October, I'm sure. Would you like to try it from Claremont, then come back via GMR?

If I knew where Claremont was, and which was GMR (as opposed to GRR, Little GRR, Littler GMR, Tiny GRM, Itty-Bitty RRR, and Northwest So. Jefferson Street), I'd say 'Sure!'. But, I don't, so I don't know what I'm saying sure to.
