Ok kids, back to your corners before this becomes a festival "oh yeah, well I did xxxxx"

Nobody is busting on Dave and Ken. Not me, not Shawn, nobody.

Nobody is denying the efforts involved, time spent, bridges crossed, burned or otherwise.

What you are reading is the voice of frustration at crappy weather that may keep people from seeing other people they miss and want to spend time with.

Deep breaths. Chill.

Tick tock....

Didn't take it that way, at all. Just making a point that no amount of planning matters when weather is involved. We're all frustrated by this as this is a huge disappointment to all of us who were looking forward to this weekend. Ain't no deal...

Thanks one and all - and I apologize for an unnecessary post earlier. As Fernando can attest - I'm probably the king of a couple unfavorable categories here. I at times start a post and get distracted mid composition (the dangers of working from home), and by the time I finish and post, others have already posted - often negating my post; and in one case appearing to challenge the powers that be by a innocent video clip, because by the time I'd posted, the discussion direction had changed and the clip could have taken a different meaning. dopeslap ohboy It was a funny clip too!

This was the case here, by the time I finished and posted, Kinsley had explained why we moved the weekend and my comments were redundant. Apologizes - we're all enthusiastic riders frustrated by the current weather. The other list I top here? I am unquestionably the king of typos and edited posts - a bit odd since it can take me so long to compose a post. I was tempted to delete my earlier post, but then felt that created another set of issues.

What is great is that we are an understanding bunch of folks who give each other the benefit of the doubt.

I'm packed and heading out on two wheels in the morning! bike

Dave - Others can say nice things, however, I am very glad you will be there so that I can personally hold you accountable for anything that does not go well at START '18! grin

Last week of April or mid-month is no guaranty of good weather; the first El Paseo had snow on the sides of the roads and edges of some roads the last week of April in 2002, I believe. Take a look at some of the pictures I posted last year on Moto Photo. I learned long ago to bring the heated gear even in the summer up there. I sense a lot of angst out there from our northern riders, for the weather in their areas which I can relate to, and hope everyone who can escape the snow and ice can make it. If you can't get here, we will hoist a toast in your honor as we know you will be with us in spirit. Maybe more than one.
