There are several of us planning on meeting at Dooger's in Long Beach, WA on Sunday, Jan. 9th, 2011.

I'm thinking noonish but can make it later if needed. Everyone is welcome to join us. If we can get a head count I'll be happy to call and give them a heads up on how many will be showing up for lunch.

Dan, since your closest riding neighbor, Denny, has other plans, would you like to meet John and I somewhere along the way?

Anyone else in the Portland/Vancouver area wanting to buddy up? Ernie, now that you are retired will you be able to make it?

Are you guys planning on biking it or caging it? I may have my heated jacket liner by then. I also just got my new Multitech hemet with a pinlock visor I may want to try out. It looks like a high of 41 and a low of 27 Sunday morning. Thats 43 and 31 for Long Beach, WA. I do not have any heated gloves!

Hi Larry! Most of us are talking on the Bike. But if Wx is too extreme cages are certainly permitted! The main thing is a chance to get out and ride as well as grab a bite to eat with fellow riders. Hope you can join us!

I'll probably be going out HWY 30 or maybe 4 on the Washington side. That's the long way to 101 for you guys. Maybe I can get Oskar to go. I'll check back with you folks.

Assuming no ice storm I'm planning on riding the GS. Maybe Saturday I should run down to Wingman and get a pair of Gerbing glove liners:) The rest of me seems to be fine with "layering".

Just curious

I bought a Heated jacket liner and it is to come today. I have never used these things and have a question. If I wanted gloves, will and other makers gloves hook up with the Tourmaster? I guess I am assuming there will be a connection of some sort at each wrist area?!?

Well, haven't checked the Wx for Long Beach yet, but they are already changing our forecast down here from overcast to possible snow flurries! So, that probably means it will be sunny! Will be watching the Wx and seeing if it looks safe enough for the ride. meanwhile, I took the liberty of correcting the actual count now that we actually are getting folks interested.

I went to wingmans to look for deals and scored a Pinlock Dark visor insert for $20. Wanted the gerbings gloves but they must be sold for full retail so I passed and figured that I can get them from a place closer to Beaverton and they aren't closing the store.

Too bad I had to stand in line for 55 minutes just to get the insert!

John,

What arithmetic are you using? I lost enough weight to not count as two people I hope.

Oops! Too long staring at the computer screen I guess Ernie! I didn't even look at the actual numbers, just figured there should be two numbers for two people. I forgot about all that brown math you must have done for decades! So how about I fix my screw-up now? (By putting your most excellent math back like it was!)

LOL I'm so glad you have a sense of humor John. Thanks for the poke in the ribs too. It is going to take a long time for the Brown Blood to return to the more normal shade of red.

:D

Well folks, after conferring with Art a few minutes ago, we both feel that this may not be the best weekend for a chowder run. Differing to Safety over brawn, especially considering the current weather and the forecast for more tomorrow, we think it may be a better weekend for hot chocolate or java by the fire along with storing the last of those Christmas ornaments & lights!

However, should the rest of you feel like proceeding, please do not let us stop you all! In that vein, I will post the names of those brave soles who may still be making the run. If you agree with our decision though, please drop a line, or remove your names from the list to avoid confusion for everyone else out there!

Dan, looks like you're leader of the pack for now buddy!

Wimpish, but still alive,

Sorry all; the weather outside is not what hospitable at all. It is forecast to be worse tomorrow. May I suggest we follow you lead John and make it a family home weekend. I have been away all week anyway and have a lot to catch up on around the house and shop.

Cheers!
