Rumor has it, Psyche Ledge, Saturday September 8, 19:00 ish?
Unsanctioned, unofficial.
It's a Park now so unlike the old days, no booze, no fire, no mayhem.
Possible dinosaur sightings, war stories, slander and lies.
Unofficially, there's interest in designating the old haunt as historically significant and allowing for for some renovations.
That is if course if we're interested.
What's the odds it rains?

Thanks, PB!

Forecast: sunshine! http://www.theweathernetwork.com/fourteenday/cabc0279

And if you believe that, I have a gondola to sell you.

Sounds like fun, and I hope to be there. Can I bring my pet p'terodactyl?

Flagrant bumpmosis.
Rumor persists, might spread it some more.
Think I'll check it out, just in case it's for real.
Especially if Mighty's going to be there and BK starts a rave.

I'm making a rumor right here that a Yank or two might even show up.

What? Did I scare someone? This sounds like a fun event. The last and only time I spent on Psyche Ledge was at Daryl's memorial. It would be cool to revisit. I won't drink as much this time.

I'm psyched. I got the days off and will be headed north across the border where security restricts the transportation of things that completely normal people use to enhance the enjoyment of their meager lives or to reduce the pain of the struggle. I'm sure someone will have my back. You guys are the Rock.

Saturday Sept. 8th is the Grand Fondo so the Hwy 99 will be closed from West Van to Squamish for something like from 6:30 AM to 4 PM or something like that. expect multi-hour delays, take the train )ha) or get there the night before...

They are expecting most of the riders to be through Squamish by 12:30 so things should settle down for that portion of the highway by early afternoon. Things will be pretty crazy going up to Whistler for the afternoon and coming home after the event but should settle down by the time the Psyche Ledge party is wrapping up.. I`m gonna try and get a site at the chief so i don`t have to go far after :)

Here is the link to the traffic advisory http://www2.news.gov.bc.ca/news_releases_2009-2013/2012TRAN0082-001270.htm

edit: The highway is not closed! They are just advising of delays.

My best scenario is to leave Seattle around noon. I hope I will miss any clusterfun on the highways.

Grand fondle has screwed me the past 2 years trying to get to work in whis by 4pm on Saturday night. It will be a huge factor south of & in Squamish till at least noon. If u are heading south before then don't expect making a left turn off the hwy an easy task. If u are heading north from van may the force be with you as you share a collective current of over 8000 pairs of spandex shorts. Sorry I won't be there, sounds like a good session will go down.

Fondo schmondo!
You guys can scrub by headlamp, lead 5.12X, raise kids AND find time to show up here at the Taco and be shut down by a bike race?
To quote Daryl, YOUR LIGHT!

Well, the upside is smaller turnout, greater intimacy and fewer people to share bk's E stash!
