Got in last night about 5:15. A big thanks to Mr. Duck for organizing, also to Mikko and Sebastian for letting me tag along through Titus Canyon and last but not least to Thor for giving Jan and I free lodging,breakfast and great conversation. Good to see everyone again and we'll do it again.

In at 1830.

I tried the 120 entrance to Yosemite from 395 and found some frozen moisture on the road at a few spots approaching the fee gate (not manned), and as I went further in it got increasingly worse, until a ranger stopped me and told me that "You're not going to make it". By that time the temp was 26º. She also said I would be coming to black ice. 5 others on RTs were a few minutes ahead of me and I don't know how they faired. I turned around and headed home. GRRRRR!!!!

You might want to double check your credit/debit card charges from the Exchange Club.

I made my reservation with the first night deposit back on September 11. When I showed up on Friday they didn't have my reservation or any record of the charge for the first night. With no record of my reservation or deposit I registered and paid for the two nights. When I got back home I was able to verify that I was charged on my card back in September so a dispute was filed, but when I checked my card's statement on Tuesday, I had a charge for the two nights and an additional charge for a night. So I got to spend another 40 minutes on the phone with Chase filing another dispute.

Not sure what their problem is, but dealing with it is annoying. mad

Eddd.

You ride a green bike. You SHOULD be charged double.

But really, your beef is with the motel, NOT Chase....
Straighten it out with Exchange Club and get a credit on your account.

Good luck.

I talked to the Exchange people but since they had no record of my deposit I had to go to Chase to try and get a transaction number or some type of proof. Chase's position was to let them handle it through there dispute process. Chase immediately credited my account with the first incorrect Exchange charge. Now they are working on the second incorrect Exchange charge.

Don,
Thank you for great arrangements in DV. It all worked very well this time. Even the Lasagna was good.
Me and my Old Honda enjoyed the outing in spite of our tenured lives.

I had the same problem with the exchange club a few years ago. They corrected it quickly in my case. I just went and checked. This time around they treated me right.

Nobody wanted the room on either side of you due to your questionable nocturnal habits. They had to change you for there loss.
