Can we organize an Orange Beach ride that's on a Saturday and at a more reasonable hour? Christine gets up at 5 to go to work on weekdays and has earned the right to sleep in a bit on Saturday. I don't have the heart to wake her up (And I know what's good for me Laughing ) And we go to church on Sunday morning.

Is Saturday a bad day for anybody? Say, can we meet at OB somewhere around 9:30?

Count me out on Orange Beach. Still plenty of places to ride in PCola. Why people who live in PCola area, would want to go bike in another State, Makes no sense to me.

I just took a 20 minute or so ride thru Navy Point. Only 1 car came down the road during the entire ride. It was nice..

Because there are many scenic miles of trails without cars to worry about.

I'll be all for it. I think I'll buy another bike more my size that I can peddle without getting sore knees before I try it though.. I'll see how things go this week and will try to make it.

Okay, I screwed up. I'm not in town this next weekend. Can we please do OB on the following Saturday???

I'll have my trailer then and can transport bikes if anybody needs their bike transported.

Next weekend might be better for me also. I have a small trailer I can use for bikes also along with a lot of small ratchet ties downs to keep them from falling off. I can build a bike rack to hold them in a little while. We can also go to Susan's for Lumpia after the ride.........

Sounds good about the Lumpia. We went by on Saturday and bought a hundred of those suckers. Had 7 for lunch. They were so good, I could have eaten 30...

There is an oriental food place on Cervantes that has them frozen in boxes of 50 I believe. They have the bigger ones too. Susan's has pansit that is good and the to go orders are too much for me to eat in one meal.

We used to get Lumpia from a lady that my wife worked with. Her mother made them at their house. It turns out that the owner of Susans is working (partnering?) with my wife's coworker.

I'll have to try the Pancit. I don't think I have had that before.

I know what you mean... priorities, priorities.

But I was wondering what hand planing is. Is that some sort of wood working with a planer... shaping boards with a Surform???

HMG, I saw a Genesis V2100 at WalMart yesterday. I'm thinking of buying it and putting a bigger, more padded Schwinn seat on it. Any ideas that won't cost a fortune?? The pawn shop on Mobile Hwy had a Schwinn for sale for $100 more than a brand new Schwinn at Wal Mart.. LOL
