View Webster 01-09-2011 in a larger map
Members: Firtherr, P-Dawg, Scottie, Falcon
Guests: Sharon, Pam, Mary Fran, Kathy
Ride: Blue Heron to Tap Room (Bill Grays) and Back
-Gassed up and Mobile and headed up to Bill Grays
-In spots there was plenty of Snow.. in other it was thin... crossing corn fields going perpendicular to the corn rows was not enjoyable.
-There were a few water holes, nothing too bad, all passable.
(Editors note: I particularly enjoyed watching the girls cross water, they did a great job and have been coached well "Hit it when you cross the water")
-Lost in Webster... Headed up S43, but the trail old trail to Webster was closed. This caused quite a bit of confusion and dismay.
-Found new trail and headed north... Very enjoyable and no more road banging
-Made it to Bill Grays, Had some eats and a few pops.
-Polled the Girls at the bar with a few helmet talk questions:
?Will the girls ever take a solo ride? unanimous NO
?If you rode solo, who would lead? unanimous Kathy
?Who would get the Nappi award (fastest rider)? Mary Fran 2, Kathy 2
?Who would fix the sleds in the event of a break down? Sharon 3, Pam 1
-Headed back to Blue Heron, Sharon texted her rowing friend at Blue Heron that we were coming and keep the bar open...
-The Polaris Oil light turned on... Ran a little low... fortunately we had enough to get home YIKES
-Big Johns Tail Light is out... No break light or running light...
-Ride back was much faster as the girls were relaxed after the courage juice.
-Loaded the Sleds and had a few at Blue Heron
