Looks like Robe is gonna be at a good level this weekend. Anyone want to work off some of those unwanted holiday calories?

Get there early and you can double down with Brad and his group.  The rest of us will be showing up at noon to let the morning frost burn off.

Dude, I'm all about the crack 'o noon for Robe. I hate the landslide portage after a frost. Not enough to run Lanslide, but enough to sleep in and eat sum bacon.

Noon for me. Anyone wanna carpool?

Yup. Saturday should be a goid "fair weather" Robe level. The graph is occassionally shifting shape in an encouraging way. Plan to be out there, at this point.

Yo Wacko- write up a Robe Description and send it to me as a PM. Same goes for all of you regular Robe paddlers. I want to update the Robe Page, and this is how I want to do it: more communitty involvement than something written from only one individual's perspective.

Robe is the perfect place to try this method. So the sooner you guys could help me out w/ this the better. There are more popular runs that could possibly benefit from this approach, but first I need to see how it'll work out on a smaller scale ( there are fewer people running Robe than there are running The Sky).

Hope to see yall out there Saturday.

Im starting to get a bad craving for Robe, enough so to fight the heinous traffic from Gig. Wish my stomper was here, but I think ill take the old death trap out there for one farewell run. Looking forward to it.

JP, you wanna car pool from the south end?

YoShelby,
  Robe, this weekend!  If it is in, that probably means the snow sucks, so I'll be out there.  We can talk shop!

Mr. Shelby: quite likely.
We'll figure it out by friday night. May have additional carpool/shuttle companions, including one with four paws and a slobbery tongue.

Vive La Robe!

All we need now is a hooker to drive shuttle and some H's in our names, maybe a toilet to barf in after the Gnomes force us to do keg stands...

Well, 8am is probably more than a little excessive. But I will defer to Mr. Shelby as it is likely now that carpooling is in order.

Mr. Dufay? What say you?

Dude, I gotta register my availaibility for mid afternoon. Here's my story:

1:30- off from work (maybe can bend it back to 1pm or 12:30
Approx 45 min to get up to I-405 n 160th (PnR)
Approx (What, Fish?) About an hour to the T.O.

So latest I'd be there would be...
3 or 3:30.

Anyone else on a similar schedule? If I wasn't locked into the early half of the work day in Auburn (dude, I am not impressed w/ Auburn), I'd be all over a morning lap.

Guess I'll check here in the a.m. to see what's going on. I may be able to make it to the t.o. before 3pm, but its not likely. I suppose if traffic is forgiving, but if I drive out there solo, the carpool lane is out. So I think I gotta stick w/ 3pm. If you guys change your plans and don't do the 3pm trip, let me know.

Who else might be into a 3pm meet?
Dufay?
Shelby?
Darren?
Hawthorn?
