Only if the wenches brought them ;) In the mountains, where I live, most everyone is a Lumberjack or Lumberjill. Not too bad, I guess, if you don't mind being strapped to a tree.

If the weather holds, think about riding over. I've access to a four bed cabin for a couple of overnights. No real charge, but you have to buy dinner one night. Google "Millsite Inn" or "Mary's Lake Lodge", or "Oscar Blues" (yum!)

Rick
Oskar Blues has some outstanding beer, and the food isn't bad either. Mary's Lake Lodge is tasty foods, and they can accommodate a large group. On more than a few occasions they've handled 20+ sporty bike hooligans.

 You moving this back to the "backup" weekend?

Rick,
 You moving this back to the "backup" weekend?

Alas, I think so  :'(

Though it looks like 45F and a 'slight' possibility for rain on Saturday at the palace in the mountains next to the big tree, I don't have to ride in the potential crap to get to said palace. Not to mention an over abundance of caution may prove that sand/salt ends up on the road. Doesn't bother me much, but may put a damper on the proposed festivities.

Not to fret though! ;D I think I scarfed up a raccoon for the grub. SCORE! Thought it was a skunk, but it didn't stink.
Daily Double: I get more time to get the outhouse in proper working order :)

Command from the mount: Wrench and Wretch postponed until April 28th due to inclement weather.

I would like to swing by, it sounds like fun. However, I'm going to be in Denver the weekend of the 21st and I'm not sure I can swing being gone two weekends in a row. We'll see though.

Rick,    I just noticed your message today.  I'm not real consistant about getting on the site to keep up with everthing thats going on.   Turns out that it's small world sometimes.  I rode through Lyons on the 10th;  in route to Nederlands for grub and suds.  Wish I would have seen your message to arrange a howdy-doo session.   I work on the 28th or would try to make it down for the day.  Maybe we can catch a ride later this spring.  I usually ride just me and the bike.  Would be fun to have some company for a change.  Thanks for the invite.  Sounds like it will be a great time.

@Kazairl. Holler if you have time when here, I can buzz down for lunch or sumpin.

@CRocker: Tell her you're heading out for "Cajun Take Out". I'll make ya a 'go' box :)

@Wyowind: I'm here most of the time. Drop me a note if you'll be in the area, I'll do the same. Chugwater Chilli Cookoff is coming up isn't it?

Can't say that I've ever been to the Chugwater cook-off day.  Started that direction once or twice and found out the road doesn't lead directly there from here.  I usually get wound around some county road and takes all day to find my way back.  Funny how this bike gets lost out there a lot.  Gonna have to make sure not to fix that.  Maybe this year I could find the town of "bison-leaps" - Chugwater that is.

Ok, you guys are making me homesick and jealous that I can't be there. I really want to try Rick's BBQ raccoon or possum or skunk or whatever. So to make me feel better I'm planning to spend that weekend on a beach in Marseille and a drive over to Carcassonne for a look see.

So...Rick...you think one rain-date was enough?  Or, am I just a whiner...? :-\
