Random Wandering

Out to Lunch

Sunday, Sept 7, at 10:00am,
King Eddie Launch Site

The trails are a little damp,
so hopefully less dust
Launching from the staging are at
King Eddie on Highway 6

 Going to try and go to Grizzly Lake,
anyone know the way?
This will be a damp ride,
lots of rain in the hills
Dress to be warm, and to keep dry 🙂
Bring a lunch, we will have  a camp fire to cook over and visit around
Please bring your camera,
take pictures to post on facebook
I will lead this ride, so
prepare to wander aimlessly,
Extra gas might be a good idea
