Isle of Vashon TT will probably be 9/6 or 9/13.  A great time to ride up here.

If all goes according to plan..................PZ will arrive in Wendover on Saturday AM - August 23rd...........I will be on the salt-flats from early AM until after 6 PM and then at the Best Western from about 6 to 7 PM before we go to dinner.  Jerry will be with me from Sunday on.............so his smart phone may be the best to arrange a hand-off time.  Photo-ops on the salt anytime..............

Hi Guys,
Is there a plan yet for who will pick up GZ at Bonneville?  Sorry if I've missed something obvious.  I do that from time to time.

Josh and Greg................Jerry plans to arrive on Sunday PM with the original banner............It looks good for Pimp-Lizard to have a ride-around in Michigan and then connect to Wisconsin through Indiana and Illinois. We begin our trip to the salt-flats on the 20th and still plan to arrive late Friday or early Saturday, the 22nd-23rd. Let Jerry know your plans for a GRAND HAND-OFF at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Probably will. I'll be in touch.

I don't have a room mate yet. Let me know if you can make it. I'll be away from home Mon - Sat late with just a sleep over before heading out Sun AM. My cell is spotty where I'll be and simetimes messages disappear. If you call and I don't answer, an email or PM would be best.

And if you don't see the van then bring beer to the Mexican restaurant. We'll be REAL thirsty and REAL hungry  ;D

Old Scrambler, is this ETA still good?  I am restricted to the weekend at this point.  Too much going on at work to weasel out of there.  I can make the 22nd through the 24th work, though Friday or Saturday would be best, so let me know.  Then once I have it, what's next?  Dave Voss and Mooshie up for a ride to central Oregon?  Tlbranth rides down from the Puget Sound area to meet up somewhere in between?  Wags, any ideas about what you'd like to do?

I'm pretty much up for anything. I just need to know the route and if it's somewhat near Boise, I can meet you along the way.

The pimposaurus is in SW Idaho. I'll post some pix when I get near a real computer, but in the meantime lets figure out what's next. Someone from the great Pacific Northwet want to meet me somewhere?  Wags, I'll be in touch when someone chimes in about wanting to ride.

Great job Greg!  I am really bummed I couldn't make it down.  It's been raining cats and dogs for a week now though so I am NOT bummed about not riding in that!

No joke about the rain. The salt was wet. It looks like Lake Bonneville is trying to make a comeback.

FYI: I have all next week off and will be headed up to the Pendleton Round-Up for the weekend. In case you had any thoughts of going that direction soon.
