    1-Garbage pick day is today and you can just image how necessary it is for me to get rid of the piles of recycling/garbage I have! I REALLY hope the garbage guys make it out here today!
    2-My house FINALLY does not smell like stale beer!
    3- My kids returned on Tuesday to many leftover food/soda. Jacob's comment-"Mom, you should have a party every time we go to Dad's". If only he knew...

    December 15, 2012

  • Kathy

    Some last minute details from me: I live in the country. No sidewalks, no street lights. Please be considerate of my wonderful neighbors; you can park partially on their lawn/ditch. Feel free to park on KickABoo Rd and walk across my lawn.
    I also want everyone to be safe. Please do NOT drink and drive. Anyone is welcome to sleep at my house.

    December 15, 2012

  • Laura

    Hi all, this is yet another reminder to PLEASE keep your RSVP's up to date. HML will be displeased with no shows and members on the waiting list and will result in a nasty-gram! Are you all sufficiently quaking in your boots?? :)

    December 14, 2012

    • Laura

      I'm serious about the no shows, though. I will be keeping track.

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.
