    I'm in, riding up and down, but I won't be waiting on the way up.

    It would be fun to meet you guys...

    But, MRT is a long way from the PDX area for me. I like it but it is a good 5 freakin' hours...and probably 60 dollars in gas.

    You're welcome to carpool with me. I'm leaving PDX early to meat Meat in Salem before we continue on South. I only have a fork mount carrier on the roof, so if you have a thru-axle or a Lefty (ahem Greg ) bring a converter, I'm already going to have one disassembled bike in the back.

    I will be on the trail by 8:30am, it only takes me about 2 1/2-3 hours at the most to get up the trail.

    sounds good

    Sean,

    What time are you leaving on Saturday? Shoot me an email and I will pay for part of the petro. Are you coming back that day?

    Appreciate the offer,

    Jay

    Top down time

    How long does it take to ride the top down? Will this be a balz to the walz ride down, or a ooh ahh the views ride down?
    Only reason I ask, is that I've never been to MRT, and just want to know if I should bring camera or not. Don't wanna be holding the crew up for my photo ops!

    Muchos garcias,

    John

    I'll go ahead and call the ooh-ahh ride down. I've never been down there either and if it turns out to be a nice day, I'd like to have the opportunity to snap some photos. If people want to haul down the trail (I'm getting the idea that hikers may potentially put a damper on hauling anyway) I'll ride with the slower folk, because I'm a slow folk.

    PM sent though I think I neglected to answer your questions.

    I'm leaving at whatever time necessary to arrive in Salem around 8AM. It's going to vary depending on whether you come to meet me, or I pick you up.

    I'm definitely coming back on Saturday.

    I sent you contact info in the PM. Get in touch with me and we'll get scheduling worked out.

    Why wear anything else but long black socks? They never show dirt

    Maybe Smudge is looking forward to seeing Meatfoot's 1/2 a foot of meat, but I would prefer if he would wear shorts along with those black socks.

    Funny/sad, I laugh at my coworkers all the time. I'm not convinced they like it though. Maybe it's the pointing and name calling they don't like though...

    Oh, anytime! I am glad I can be the source of amusement.

    In Fall, we should scope it out as a Friday ride.

    Ummmm, Sas, you see it says Meat Foot. By definition it is a foot long. It is like when you go to Subway sandwiches and you order a "foot long" the don't give you 1/2 a foot and call it good. They give you the whole enchilada baby.
