    New question here. Who's going to the KC Summit

    Any of you fine individuals planning on heading down to KC for the Midwest Singletrack Summit in Kansas City. It's like the middle of March. I went last year and it turned out to be a breath of early spring weather. I'm headed down with a couple of buds from Chit-cow-go-land to camp and frolic. I didn't make it out to the Frank Tuesday ride last year, but this year maybe I'll be more brave.

    There will be a crue from the 612, for sure: (CRC, Surly, Los Borrachos/Retarded Dingoes, etc). And the Friday night Frank Tuesday Madness is not to be missed. Two years ago it was an urban blitzkrieg thru downtown Kansas City. This year it may be at the trail, but either way, it's a fine time.

    I'll be there, but I don't really have a choice. It couldn't be a Frank Tuesday event without Frank Tuesday.

    True dat.

    Case in Point: The Annual Lawrence Kansas Bicycle Pub Crawl. While not a Frank Teusday event, it would have been even more joyous were you there. SW MO represented though, and more than a few bike piles were proudly built. Let's hope for a full ressurection next year! If you can request time off from your wife, that is...

    Hay guys,

    I am going to be there. Don't know if I am going to race or not.

    I have a few free draws of beer coming my way. Said beer will be given to those that ask. I am more of a boxed wine/boxed cheese kind of lady.

    Camp'n

    Free camping for all summit attendees according to the website. Last year the camping was just down the hill from the main summit hookie lau, but from what I can gather from the new webpage the summit will now be located at the boy scout camp, so I dunno if we camp there or elsewhere. I hope to park my van, pop the top and use the bike for transportaion the rest of the weekend just like last year.

    Camping will also be at the Boy Scout camp, so you will not have to go as far to pass out... I mean fall asleep as last year.

    Basically the campsite is the trailhead and the festival site.

    How 'bout those campfire girls?

    I like the camp right at the summit idea. Does that mean one big a$$ central firepit party zone? Will there be room for my bud's 24' love shack trailer?

    Gald to hear you're making the trip. Plenty o beer, plenty o riding and of course there has to be a bout o fire jumping too.

    The site is.org, not .com, but you can get to the Summit from the .com site too. http://www.earthriders.org/

    If you register early, you get hooked up with extra swag and more importantly, free beer.

    It's the first weekend of Spring Break and I'm child free that weekend. Unless I come up with a new girlfriend by then I can't think of any reason I couldn't be there. And any new girlfriend I get better be a biker chic anyway!

    Peace,

    Between Dirt Rag, the GORC Posse, Frank Tuesday, Cars-r-Coffins, Surly and the Singlespeed Outlaw Crew, you'll be able to gauge very quickly whether any potential GF is a keeper or not. If she can put up with with this trial byy fire, then she can tolerate anything.

    We'll see you in March.

    Glad to hear Zoe's recovering. I didn't get the original email, so that was the first I'd head of her surgery.

    Yo, guy's and gal's the wife and I (perhaps a couple friends) will be going down Thurs night and setting up camp. Going to try and ride the BURP with some local tour guides on Friday morning, maybe drive over to Lawerence and ride the river trail early afternoon, then get back for the Frank Tuesday ride with the Fish and the rest of you animals. Gary when will you be arriving? Ken, where do you think the best camping is going to be? We camped there (BSC) a couple of yrs. ago, but it was at the last race of the year and of couse that was in july and we sweat our asses off. Anyway looking forward to putting some faces to mtbr folks. FYI: I'll be bring down around 6lbs of Morrel mushrooms for those who like them, perhaps some smoked deer loins, for the campfire on Sat. night. Peace

    We're getting there early Friday morning. We're bring'n GoFast's 24' travel trailer and two other ss'rs (RatRide and Toppy) from los gnomes. Let's hook up for a Saturday night pre-race feast. I could cook a bird in my dutch oven or we could fry a whole marinated turkey to go with those shrooms. Let me know what the plan is.

    I'm going to attempt to make it to the KC Summit. Plan is to hit that on the return drive back from the AZSF04. Figure I might as well get some riding in while I'm still unemployed.

    I know that when you say you can't make it, it means you can make it, or maybe you can make it, or you'll probably make it, or it's not likely you'll make it, or there's a chance you'll make it, or that there's possibly a slight chance that maybe you'll be able to make it, or, alas, simply that you can't make it.

    Don't forget to register.

    Mangia my frommage, mussel-boy!

    I try my darndest to get out to things, but sometimes my enthusiasm gets the best of me. My wife will slap me silly with things like reason and things we already planned, and I eventually learn.

    I'd like to go, but if it'll set me back $800*, then I have to balance this against a new couch. Having guests sit on the floors or patio furniture inside my house is getting tired.



    *These are rough guesstimates, but:
    $175 cheapest round-trip ticket on US Airways from Baltimore to KC, Missouri (I used orbitz and didn't know the closest airport there.)
    $150 for bike transport on plane
    $240 for Performance cargo box
    $100 for compact car rental for 3 days
    $80 for food and drinks for the weekend
    $100 for room for two nights

    I could camp, use a cardboard box for the bike box, eat cheese sandwiches and water all weekend, and catch a cab to and from the airport...

    We can help offset some costs....

    We can get you from the airport to the Summit (and hotel), so you don't need a car. If you're willing to trust FedEX, one of our local bikeshops will accept your bikes and let you build them up.

    I'm seeing $139 for airfare from BWI
    $100 for a Crateworks box (that's what I've got) - or a cardboard box or I may be able to locate something for you
    Ship bikes - not sure of cost yet, but should be 50% or less of airline charge
    Shuttle transpo or something similar, no need for rental
    Camp for free.

    There, I just saved you around $400 that you can put towards beer!

    Exactly. Tell your wife you are actually going to EARN $100 by going on the trip. You can't miss!

    We had him eating Velveeta sammiches and tap water for three days and returning home to sit on a bare floor to watch the teletubbies.

    We're getting there early Friday morning. We're bring'n GoFast's 24' travel trailer and two other ss'rs (RatRide and Toppy) from los gnomes. Let's hook up for a Saturday night pre-race feast. I could cook a bird in my dutch oven or we could fry a whole marinated turkey to go with those shrooms. Let me know what the plan is.

    Ken, I really appreciate it. Please check your private messages.

I went last year and it turned out to be a breath of early spring weather. I'm headed down with a couple of buds from Chit-cow-go-land to camp and frolic. I didn't make it out to the Frank Tuesday ride last year, but this year maybe I'll be more brave.
    riderx, Drevil, Allroy, and I have registered and bought the plane tickets, so there's no turning back now!

    Just have to build a box and work out the ancillary details.

    Looking forward to it...

    Yup, the berryman drains better than anything I've ever seen with the exception of one short section north of Brazil Creek Campground that can be bypassed easily. The muddy section is near Harmon Spring if my recollection is good.

    On the radar but not...

    ...committed as of yet. Since it's a drive it may be a last minute decision. SuperClyde has been talking it up so my guess is he'll be there.

    Trying to figure out how to best use my spring riding time - FFTF, an AZ junket or a couple closer rides like KC. The wyf got knocked up by somebody so now I need to figure out how to maximize bike time pre nino.

    What's yukeanuka and how does smoking it effect one's body?

    I'm so old and not with it that pretty soon, I'll be retro and cool again.

    Race? Where?

    The StLunatic junkies who raced last year have all vowed to skip the race this year. The best ride of the weekend was the "alcohol-fueled" lightless, Jedi night ride. THis occured late on Saturday which was the night before the race.

    All of our leg-shavin'/heart-rate monitorin'/blood dopin' racer geeks were in-bed...their loss.

    You allready have a MN posse to hitch a ride with. The Duluth folks are come'n and you know how much fun they are............I was in your shoes about 18 years ago and I capitolised on every moment that I could get away just before my first litter was due, cuz after, you will have a new baby and a lactating wife that will make it hard to leave home. Mmmmmm warm mother's milk fresh from the tap........just leave some for the kid, OK? This is the kind of trip where you tell the office that you have an appointment with a urologist downtown at 1:45 and that you won't be coming back till monday. Make a wincing painfull face and say you really don't want to talk about it if they ask any questions about what's wrong with your pea shooter. The bags are packed, the batteries are charged and BAM! you hit the hiway in time to enjoy Frank Tuesday's Raw Meat Night Ride. You hang out and drink a few too many brews....pass out. Saturday you get up eat some healthy and hot gruel and hop on that ss and go for a ride with a bunch of friends, old and new, on trail that will suprise the snot out of you cuz it's so f'ing great. In the afternoon another ride and then by the time ride number two ends, the beer garden will be open. Cold smooth carmelly fat tire ale tapped from kegs blessed by the pope. A feast at camp lakeraven, a little kind, alotta beer, live music, all around a blazing bonfire. Sunday (after church) a farewell ride and back in zee otto-mobeelz to zee auto-bon (I-35) und home again. If that don't give you a chub then see your urologist for real on Friday.

    On the race question - out of the four Q's coming down from los gnomes only one of us is racing. The rest of us will just ride as much as possible and don cheerleading uniforms for the race on Sunday.

    So you're bringing Eastern European strippers... ah, I mean "massage therapists" to the Summit? Excellent! I love Briitish Columbia. Someday I hope to vacation there.

    You gotta ride, nobody is in shape in March. The playing field is level'd this time of the season.
