Official Spring Ride Discussion Thread

We are camping at the Falcon Lake Lakeshore Campground. I believe we are in bay 5.

Here's the plan, as far as there is one:

We'll meet at the Deacon's Corner A&W for breakfast at 9:30. From there, we'll head to Falcon Trails for a brief ride while we wait for others to show up.

The Blue Highway ride will depart from the campground at around 2:30 pm.

After that we will just kind of wing it.

Use the comments to sort out anything that still needs sorting out--rides, accommodations, food, etc. Or maybe just to share your excitement.

Room for one more as it looks like I could take a weekend off from yard work?

The President has initiated the annual accounting of The Book. We will swing by the klubhaus later this afternoon to claim the bounty.

Get some Rickard's.

You are so funny.

I just had my passenger pull out. I'll be heading out in my truck Friday morning and returning on Sunday morning to be back in the city by about noon.

Would anybody like to join me? I've got room for bikes and stuff.

graham said...

btw, I can't catch a ride with anyone else because at some point on the weekend I have to head to a jobsite in Ontario.

Also we'll need some people to bring firewood. Usually the Impaler shows up with his perpetual wood in hand.

Graham, I might take you up on your offer. I also have some fire wood if you'd be willing to pick me up.

graham said...

Sounds good Lyle.

The Dark Lord said...

And tarps don't forget to bring tarps. This could turn out to be the highlight of the weekend.

Mark said...

That reminds me, better brush up on my knot-tying skills. Can't wait!

Daniel said...

I would be willing fill an empty seat if there is extra space. I can leave Friday am.

JP said...

Dan- if you can make it to my place in EK or somewhere on Fermor around 9:15 I can give you a ride.

The Dark Lord said...

Final tally in The Book: $548. They ran out of Darkness. So we had to supplement with something else. Not Rickards.

Mark said...

Pilsner I hope

Brad the Impaler said...

I haven't been myself lately. I can't get wood. But Mike tells me he has wood.

I will bring the Mother of All Tarps.

the big frame said...

.....so many that's what she saids.

darryl said...

Anyone leaving later on Friday?

darryl said...

oh, yeah, and would have space for another passenger? Anytime after 2:30/3:00 would be great...

Don't mean to diverge from the thread too much, but here's uncle Bill himself talking about his latest Wes Anderson flick. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=m-8OOvf1NPY
