POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER..

I didn't realize the first post and header I changed this evening wouldn't update the forum title.
Weather as triple dij posted looked pretty bad tonight on two of three forecasts.

Sounds like a good call. In that case, I just turned off my alarm and it's back to snoozy town.

If you do this on Saturday next weekend, I'm in. Haven't had a good Winthrop smash in a long time.

This Saturday looks to be good weather wise. Besides, I want to see how many Pokemon I can find in Winthrop.

I didn't get a definite on going to Shell for the meetup with Balut, Bellhmrider so I'll plan on meeting you (maybe both) at Starbucks. Not going to slab it down I-5 though...

Well, it went down (and I don't mean the rain)...

A little bit of rain wasn't about to dampen this trip so we put on our gear and pushed on until about Newhalem before it was all sun and dry road. Traffic wasn't too bad either direction though it was certainly weekend traffic.

Upon reaching Winthrop, we decided to run Loop Loop Pass and had a blast doing that run up and back and managed to miss one of the big rainclouds that was hovering over it. It would have been better if the road hadn't been wet up there but it's a beautiful (if not short) pass to take if you haven't been there. I threw in a couple of good side roads to add the mix and it was great twisites with excellent grip for most of the day!


Much to our surprise, it was sunny, WARM and dry on the way back West! What a fun ride! Thanks to everyone who made it and we'll definitely have to do that one again with all the usual suspects (you know who you are!)

Someone forgot to take pictures...
It means we have to do that one again!

It looks like a few that were on the fence changed their minds about going... Arnbo wasn't going to go outside in the rain so maybe he came later? And bellhmrider and Balut were in but didn't meet us at Starbucks and I didn't get the memo in time...
If it is any consolation, we waited for Bellhmrider until nearly 9 before leaving on the ride thinking he was meeting us.

Because I hadn't heard anything, I said "meet me at Starbucks" in the thread above then didn't check my pm's. I'm terribly sorry guys!

One of our crew even checked this thread at the coffee shop but I didn't get my phone out. It was tucked away in a ziplock baggie until the sun came out and we were relaxing on the other side of the pass.

Next time I'll give out a phone number so people can get ahold of me. Then again, that won't work if it's raining...

You posted this weeks ago...and said that the meeting place was Starbucks. If they didnt want to meet you at the scheduled location, than that is their problem. You shouldnt have to cater to everyone's individual meeting location preferences..

Hold the f*** up right there, 'hamster. Thumper and I talked about a meet up spot offline before the ride began. We were to meet at a spot he already decided he would swing by on a certain condition. We then discussed it after the ride was over and we're good...mutual miscommunication between us. Good on ya for defending Thumper, but know your facts first.
