Saturday 3.12 at Miller.. Bust out Yer Wet/Dry Suits!

Postby dewsy » Wed Mar 09, 2011 8:53 am

Hey guys, Saturday is looking pretty tasty right now.. I know it's early but I was out there yesterday (for a run) and there's no ice but LOTS of Zebra Muscle shells on the beach so be careful if you're brave enough to get out there.. Looks right now like it's going to start side off but turn to side starting around 10 then build to side on.. I know it's early, but it's lookin GOOOOOOD.. Air temp should be in the 40's (low).. :D by the way, the place to be is Lake Street Beech..

I just got confirmation I AM OFF THIS SATURDAY WOOHOOO!!! Ok but the big issue is if there is enough wind! My 13m is down with a torn bridal so it is either 9m or 16m weather for me, we'll see...

Well I'm definitely a year older, either that or the first day riding of the season REALLY beats the SH*T out of you.. Anyway, second that IVO nice to see everyone out there.. I was bummed that you guys all showed up right as I was all torn down.. Lynch, it was a great move to ditch miller for Mcity glad you showed up at miller to work that one out w me.. Btw, forget that red vw man she should have known better than to drive in ur blind spot :p

Like IVO said, let's have a great 2011 and make sure everyone's kiting in 2012..

It was great to see you guys in the water

Ben, thanks for posting the pictures and GREAT THANKS for the warm water in the cooler! That was good stuff, my hands were falling off...gotta try those Mystic gloves that IVO just got, I'll shoot an email to Bob right now for the order.

Today I feel like my grandpa but it's sooooo nice...

It's going to be a great 2011 and it is just started!!!

Glad you guys got out there! I was busy at the vet removing a chicken bone from my dogs throat. Told my wife number of times not to leave that stuff in the trash :twisted: . I've had a pair of Mystic dry gloves from Bob for a couple years now and they are warm for their thickness. I went out on a 19F day, 20kt wind and was quite warm... Well hope a front comes in soon I need to ride!!
