    Who's going to Sea Otter?

    Weather permitting, I'm planning on checking out the action Saturday with my son. Looking forward to seeing nice shiny bikes.

    I'm there! We have a big booth. I should be working it.

    Forget about the 'weather permitting' part Zorg. You're going!!

    Zorg, weather permitting? You mean, if it's doesn't rain you don't go?

    I'll be there Saturday. Don't know why, as I ride Ft. Ord enough during the winter.

    I was so spoiled last year. I took my wife and my 2 sons on Friday. The weather was perfect, and the crowds not too big. OTOH 2 or 3 years ago, I went with my older son and GMM and it poured on us, and we left Monterey after only an hour there completely soaking wet.

    Anyway, unless there is a deluge, we'll be there. I just want a beer mug!!

    Got 2 CORR trucks (1 of which has many options waiting to be built up) and 1 buggy that needs a new servo. I've had no time to do anything but work for the last 3 weeks.

    Can't you get the SOC organizers to build you an RC track somewhere?

    I'll take a few days off here and there this quarter, and used some of them to go practice. Oh yeah.

    I'll be there Friday morning through Sunday afternoon. Staying at the Monterey Plaza Hotel because I got some stupidly cheap deal.

    Found out my CEO and his son are going too, his son's racing, and CEO asked, "Oh, you gonna watch my son race?" Kinda obligated to now lol.

    Hippie up front, redneck on the back = Domination.
    My presence would be the equivalent of painting lamb's blood on your frame, causing the "angel of crash" to nail me instead.

    Running the opposite way.

    Off to Moab tomorrow! You all have fun at Sea Otter though. I doubt I'll be missing it come Sunday night after four hard days in Moab. Can't wait!

    Me and the b/f are both racing - me Sport XC, him Sport DH. I wanted to race the DH but it's at the same time as the XC race... boo! We're getting down there Thursday afternoon. I wish we could bring our dog with us but I can see how the fairgrounds would be a c/f if everyone brought their dogs. Looking forward to meeting a bunch of you at the MTBR booth!

    Jeng, you racing sport or expert? is Corina racing the XC?

    Will be there Friday - Sunday, staying in Smellinas.

    If anyone has a campsite up near the front entrance let me know which one and I'll bring the best (Dogfish Head) beer known to man. Trying to make it easier on myself to get in and out of the venue and at the same time race and take pictures. Just need a place to park my car during the daytime.

    Forrest says we have $20k+ in raffle prizes to give away. Raffle tickets are $1 each and we will donate to anti midpen and poison oak causes!

    Sigh, they said my test bike is a raffle prize.

    The great Lauren will give it to you and ride with you too!

    Hoping my parole officer gives me a 24 hour pass to leave the county. Otherwise will have to live vicariously through facebook and mtbr.
