M&G PNW/Surrounding Area July 20-23

Hi all,
Well it has been decided that the Meet & Greet will be 20-23 July. Now we need to decide where we want to have it at. It sounds like a lot of people were liking the idea of having it around the Spokane area. Since I have only been riding up in that area once I would like to go explore more.

So lets talk about where we want to have this at and firm up the details so we all can make reservations and plans.

Hope everyone has a great time, unfortunately that is the one weekend that will not work for me. I will be on my way back from SW II. I have committed to that week and can't really change now. I was hoping that later in August would be the favourite dates.

I suggested Spokane because it was an easy area for me to get to from Calgary in about 7 hours travel time. I feel like a heel now that I won't be able to go!

I really hope that this PNW M&G becomes an annual or semi-annual thing because I cannot go to SW every year especially if it moves to the Gulf Coast or SoCal. I am pretty sure I could make the NW thing especially if there are some interior BC, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and Montana locations in the years to come.

Jeff, PM me, i will arrange for delivery of your Canadian "Coffee Crisp" candy bar fix. Nickel, PM me, I am still looking into the snitzel supply, not sure how to get that Fedexed to you fresh. Was looking forward to some Salsa sampling, I am a wuss when it comes to heat eh.

Someone please take tons of pictures and post them up here.

I have only riden throught Spokane on my way to other places, so exploration is a cool thing to do on the bike. Right now it looks like it's a go for me. I will doing the same as others, it will take me about 7 hours to get over there on Friday, then will probably have to cut out Sunday morning, but that may change as well. Sorry to be so iffy, but that's the best I can do right now.

For all the guys coming over from the Westside let me know when and maybe we can hook up and ride together. I live just off exit 93 on I-90 so it will be real easy to meet up and go from here. Be kinda fun to have a group of RG's rolling down the road together.

Don't worry about the Snitzel, I'll just ride up and have a hot plate full. Haven't been to Alberta for about 5 years now so I guess I need a trip up north. I always travel with Salsa so sampling is not an issue. I'm usually packing heat but have been known to tone it down a bit.

Sounds good to me. Just a suggestion for part of the ride, Lolo pass on HWY 12 is pretty close to Spokane and could be a good ride into Missoula.

Rowdy, since you're just across the bridge from me, maybe we cuold head out to Spokane together. Just let me know. We can meet up prior to the ride some time if you like also. I occasionally ride out your way to take the round about way to Shelton and back to Olympia.

I ride a Road Glide. Therefore I am!

Hey Nickel,

This place would be ideal for your Schnitzel fix and it is only a couple hours north of the border in beautiful BC about 3-4 hours from Calgary. There are literally thousands of Calgarians that have "cabins" over in that part of the Rockies.

Have fun ya'll eh!

Ok can we get a head count of how many people are coming and how many hotel rooms we will need. There is someone in Spokane who is going to try to find a a hotel and give us a break on the rates.

So give us a head count so we have something to give the hotel.

Thanks

WILDMAN
