    Sorry you are ill, Jan.
    I would still like to go to a museum. Who is still wanting to go? If nobody has suggested one, Nasher is a good choice. Anyone else want to go to Nasher or any other thoughts?

      Noon turns out to be a bit too early of an excursion for me this Sat. So I hope to meet you at the book discussion of Visit from The Goon Squad!

      I posted this as more of an FYI and was hoping to do a meetup around it but I have come down with a bad cold. So people are pretty much on their own to try a museum. However, if you wanted to host for the Nasher, I can let everyone know and I am sure some would join in. No pressure but if you want to get a group together, just let me know.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
