Mt. Tam anyone?

Scooter got me thinking we need to do a Mt. Tam ride. Anyone interested. We could also combine it with a trip to the tourists club. If I can find it. It's way hard to find. Basically, there is a co-op of these clubs all over the world and you can stay for free if you work one Saturday a month on upkeep, etc.

On Sundays they let visitors come. Imagine a bavarian wonderland in the middle of Muir woods that has actual authentic kick you in the face German beers on tap for cheap. Cool place. Families playing scrabble. People from all over the world. The view is ridiculous. It does involve a hike, but that's good. By the time you hike back up the super strong beer has left your system. Anyway...takers?

It'll probably be a few weeks. I am a lagger.

the ride up mount tam was nice except when I did it it was midnight and about 50 ft visibility because of all the fog. It was really nice and not cold or wet and then about half way up I hit a wall of fog thick enough I wished I'd had windshield wipers for my shield. Or those cool wipes Zin had. I'll check back for the dates.
