    Would love to go but can't get there in an hour. Next on the waiting list?

    Darn. I'd still love to go, but I've missed too much work lately to take the time off. I hope those of you who are going take lots of pictures and post them for those of us that can't go.

    Is anyone planning to drive down from San Francisco who has an extra seat?

    October 9, 2013

    • Paddy

      I plan on leaving San Francisco around 1:15 if that works for you and I will be returning to San Francisco afterwards

      October 9, 2013

    • Becca del M.

      Thanks for offering, John - sounds like it makes the most sense to ride with Paddy, though. Paddy, that would be great - where can I come meet you?

      Brant, sorry to hear it, but I'm definitely still interested in going. I'm on the waitlist, so I'm not sure if you just need to drop, or if Jeff needs to do anything, but I'll plan to go unless I hear otherwise.
