The Day AFTER Turkey Day :-) ***UPDATED***

Thanksgiving was great, even if you did eat too much. Come tell each other about it. Look at live birds. Breathe fresh air. Find cool stuff in the sand. Hang out with us!

***UPDATED INFO:

Penrose Point State Park is completely rehauling their sewer system, so there are no bathrooms available.  We will meet instead at:

KOPACHUCK STATE PARK is the place.

    Had a great time in the rain. Made 2 new friends. Kopachuck was beautiful in the light rain and mist.

    It was raining. And, between raindrops, the water kept falling from the sky. Despite this and fortunately, no wind. High tide at Kopachuck so couldn't walk on the beach. Hugh knew the area somewhat, so guided us on a hike up and down the hill, always correctly staying on designated paths. We avoided the ones with the big streams going down the center.
    Thanks to Al and Hugh for not laughing at my day glow orange hiking parka, covering from heads to toes and resembling a circus tent. It was a good first event with this group.
    By the way, the group was three people who each drove to Kopachuck.

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.
