His reasoning seemed to be...
"The intense heat lately coupled with the above normal gaseous fumes from the expelation of vapors of hops and yeast, will cause an above normal high pressure zone !

Friday we do not have a group ride sign up, but with the amount of people showing up on Thursday I thought it worth posting what I know! Chirosyd and Blaustrom both are willing to lead group rides on Friday. Groups are generally kept to around 8 riders but that's up to the leaders of that group. Chirosyds group is going to be leaving the campground from the main office at 9am sharp. He has a 6 hour pavement only ride planned, plus a lunch break. Blaustrom I believe is leaving at 7:30am for his ride (it will contain dirt!). Please PM them if you would like to ride with them!

The Foreign Legion will most likely follow me on the 4.5 hour dirt run posted on the Dropbox link. NJbill is joining us as well, so 6 is my max, but other groups are welcome to tag along a safe distance apart. We are stopping at the Hard Times Cafe in Eagle Bay for lunch. It could be fun if another group went the reverse route and met us for lunch. If anyone wants the route reversed, let me know.

We will be eating breakfast locally at 9:00 and then taking off eh ! We plan on being back in good time to pick up Craft Beer and go for a dip !

Ok, see you there. We should be arriving around noon or a little later if all goes to plan.

I will lead one group on the 280 mile loop tour if there is interest. I leave at 7:30, breakfast at 9 and lunch about 12 to 12:30.

Hartmut - Sent you a pm. I am going to ride dirt with the Canucks. I just became aware of the Friday dirt option.

I hope the Border agents let in all these Canadians. It could be a record invasion
