Yes we do.
So.....
What are the schedules of folks and let's see what we can make happen.
I am free, if anyone cares, the entire Xmas holiday, besides working M-F.
Any weekend could work for me. I also suggest a possible run in the Carmel Valley area..
Or Tahoe works as well. As always the beautiful Marin/Sebastopol areas are always enjoyable. That's my .02 and I'll even add another .25 for my first official sticky...

Party on party people

On weekdays, my available nights would be Monday and Wednesday, all other times would require special clearance.

No, wait...

it's Matt. He'll call at the last minute (or day) and tell us that he can't make it. I'm not holding my breath waiting for you anymore, Matt. I thought you'd already made the move.



Tell her we waved hello.

I dunno Silke?!?!?! I am almost wanting to go more, now that I see that, but it's the traffic and the others on the road I am worried about. If they were out of the equation, I;d be all over 80.

Snow kinda freaks me out, lol... Subed is still a snow virgin! Well, except for a single winter day spent playing on Cobb Mountain, but that was a long time ago. I'm currently battening down the hatches here at home, it sounds like a series of pretty wicked storms moving in and things might flood in our neighborhood, so we're trying to stay close to home until this system moves through.

However... I've been wanting to do a drive up Berryessa-Knoxville Rd sometime (google it if you're not familiar), but we need to time it well (for a dryer period). There are some awesome water crossings there in the winter and spring that make for excellent photo opportunities. Just don't want our cars swept away in the current, lol.

Oh, and Greg is just razzing you...

Yeah it's gonna be gnarly and I know your area will get hit hard.... That road sounds fantastic. I know G-Loc (that's gangsta talk) is only razzzzzzing me...

We do that...

Totally looking forward to a run.. The 10Over Posse shall ride again.
