    Tilly: try again?

    Anybody want to try Tilly this weekend? Sunday is better for me, but Saturday looks better, weather wise ...

    What are you thinking? Wilson River Trail? I can make it Sunday if you don't mind riding with a slow, old, fat man. :-)

    Good job! WRT or GC/SB

    I almost always ride WRT or Gales Creek/Story Burn, since the Brown's Camp (Historic Hiking Trail) loop is usually a little crowded.

    I'm fairly slow, old, and phat (er, I meant fat) my own self, so no problem there. (And, on the way-off chance I _am_ faster than you, I can gloat, so that's cool too.)

    I can put up with gloating if you don't mind waiting for me. I could go for a WRT ride on Sunday. What time were you thinking?

    Saturday weather looks better, but I won't have my fave bike until Sunday, so I'm torn.

    I'm waiting to hear back from one other person, but I should know by this (Friday) afternoon.

    I am more than willing to ride in the rain, it's just that it can be a little more fun without all the liquid and mud.

    Sunday? (Rain or shine)

    Hi Thumb:

    (are you a finger-print taker? interesting handle ...)

    It looks like I'm going to try to ride Sunday.

    I may do a simple ride (in my neighborhood) on Saturday, in case Sunday is rainy, but rain or shine I'm going to try to ride Sunday.

    Can you join us then?

    Sunday AM?

    Looks like Sunday it is.

    Perhaps the best time is earlier rather than later (weather-wise)?

    How about 10AM?

    And how about the far-end of the WRT? (there's a cool loop that involves a little road riding but doesn't require an out-n-back or shuttle)

    We can do anything from 2 hours to 3.5, depending on our gonzo-ness.

    Looks like I'll be hitting Gales Creek/Storey Burn Sunday. Time TBD. Have one other coming with. Enjoy the WRT. I'll be back there again soon.

    Sounds good. By the far end of WRT I assume you mean Keenig, correct? I have not riden that section so that is a good choice. I will see you at 10 Sun at the Keenig TH. I'll be is a gray truck...with a bike in the back .

    10 AM Sunday at Keenig Creek. (I like to park just past the bathrooms, in the second parking area.)

    I'll be in my Super-Suby (Red-ish), and I assume my Vulture will be tagging along (silver single speed).

    Storey Burn

    Quite the muddy ride yesterday. The dog had an unscheduled bath in the creek when we finished. Sure was fun as usual though. Hope the WRT ride was fine.

    Good wet ride

    I ended up riding Sunday, as planned, with kayakerjim.



    It was raining the whole ride, at times steady and at times down right hard.

    I put most rain clothes I own on. Gortex rain pants and my Gore coat, on top of a couple of layers, including a wool jersey, underneath.

    Jim didn't even wear tights! Jim, you are da man (rain-wise).

    No ride pics, 'cause my iPhone doesn't swim so well.

    Here's data from the ride (thanks to my Ascent software):



    I knew it was gonna be icky when I saw this on the drive to Tillamook Forest:



    and this:



    I think Jim took a picture or two during the ride, maybe he'll post 'em up.

    Jim, thanks for a great ride and a fun day. Rain, bikes, and beer! (Sorry, no kayaking for the Lee-Man!)

    Hey LeeMan, thanks for the ride. It was a good day. My legs have finally recovered. And thanks showing me around the west end of WRT. It was quite a contrast from my Sat ride on the Sandy Ridge Trail. 2 others on the WRT vs. 50+ on the Sandy. The weather might have had something to do with it but I doubt it.

    I only took one picture. I will try to post it tonight when I get home.

    Sorry, but I only got 1 picture. Naturally, it is of whitewater. What else do you expect from a kayaker?
