Lightbulb Just One More?

With the blue skies cooperating as they are, do we dare tempt fate to plan "just one more" weekend ride before the weather closes in and the two lane passes are shuttered for a long winter's nap? What do I have in mind?

Destination: South Lake Tahoe very near the border to Stateline, NV.

When: November 11-12 or November 18-19

There is a nicely maintained, modestly priced Days Inn within walking distance of The Brewery at South Lake Tahoe as well as Brewer's Branding Iron Restaurant. (Brewer's used to be Mulligan's. Same Irish charm but more steak!) This time of year most places in SLT will let you book just the single night. As you know, there are many excellent routes to get there one way and return by another. It will be a little brisk after the sun goes down especially at the higher elevations but the trees are still turning even as the frost is on the pumpkin.

Please let me know if you're interested and I'll see about putting it together.

I'm a player for this... Couple 'o' things...

Veterans Day - Things get real screwy on three day weekends. Haven't met a cager (that weaves in and out of lanes) yet that hasn't tied one on big time!

Nov. 19th - KINGS vs. SPURS - nuff said!

My co-pilot is chewing on this... We are working thru the GIGO process as I type this...

We vote for the 11th

If our vote counts, we would be free the week end of the 11th. Someone start a sign up.

The 11th works for me too since my mom in law is coming in for Thanksgiving on the 18th. Although when she came in at the same time last year I did the Lost Coast for 3 days (1.5 days spent in a poker game). Lets hope the weather cooperates over the pass that weekend.

Post Ideas coming together.....

I was leaning towards November 11-12 for a number of reasons myself.

Yes, Nov 10-12 is technically Veterans Day three day weekend but certainly not a major one for those involved in meaningful commerce. Without snow, SLT will continue to be much less crowded and we have no plans to ride after dark.

Rally point suggestion is to meet at Bonanza Grill in Jackson, CA about 1130 for lunch and then head over Hwy 88 from there.

To answer a PM, rates are at their seasonable low just before Thanksgiving. The Days Inn rates run $44 - $85 per night depending on room size and configuration. It is rated 2.5 stars on Expedia and 2 stars in AAA. They have a large outdoor whirlpool. And again, within clear walking distance to two interesting restaurants. It is also within a few blocks of the Stateline Casinos and the Heavenly Gondola.

To answer another PM, I am not opposed to staying some place more upscale that might have in room jaccuzzis and fireplace options. However, the rates tend to be much higher, even in the off season, and very few have quality restaurants within walking distance. We can expect temps to be in the low to mid 30s after the sun goes down around 4:30pm.

There are many ways to return to our home bases depending on where that might be. Yes, a group may be interested in riding over to Virginia City, NV on Sunday morning. I also heard an idea about riding down Hwy 395 and coming across Tioga Pass through Yosemite which could work for those returning to areas of the East Bay.

One more thing. If the weather forecast turns marginal or worse, the ride would be cancelled. It's simply the safe thing to do. If the weather stays nice, we'll raise a toast to those that balked and stayed home.

Six couples so far. What say you? Shall we dance?

First and foremost, Jeanie is spelled with only one "n." Now that we have that out of the way......

Sure, I can get a suite but I will kick you out when I get the SWMBO's sign!
