Fat Tire No Tacos Fat Tuesday Ride 2016 (FTNTFT)


(Video below insert by NoHandle




Well it's that time of year again.  I awoke with anticipation similar to a child waking upon Christmas day.  Oh my, it's gonna be sweet.  Record breaking highs and a week of no rain should yield a rather tacky and mud free ride-a-thon.  Dare I say fun enough to maybe even get PeterG off the couch and on a bike?

But, before we get too far ahead with the trash talking and ride wishing, there is still some planning that needs to be done.  There has been some back channeling going on, and now is the time to state the intentions properly and in a public manner.

Here is what we know; Fro has dropped off a trailer at my house with a BBQ, fire pit and fire wood (I threw in my old Christmas tree too).  The knott hole is supposedly closed - whatever that means.  We have insider knowledge that we can still bust into the lot.  I am planning on swinging in to Safeway on my way up for provisions.

Here is what we don't know; is Chicken bake coming, are Hurricanes in the forecast tonight, and where should this party go down (I'm in favor of Knott Lot, although anywhere would work)?

A quick list to organize :

Burgers - Orphan
Burger Buns - Cappy
Dog/Brats - cMan
Long Buns - Cappy
Condiments - no Handle
Chips - No Handle
Beer - Newb
Pineapple - Newb
Hurricane Fixings:
           Rum - Cap'n
           Rum - ???? (cause the recipe calls for two kinds)
           Grenadine - Nocar
           Passion fruit juice - ????
           Orange Juice - ????
           Limes - ????
           Cups - ????
           Ice - ????
Paper Plates and Towels- Newb
BBQ Tools - Newb
Pop Up Table -Newb


Here's to a start.  We can ax any of the above items if the group wants.

ONE!

  8. I just received a call from Mother Rye. She confirmed that the Knott Lott will be left unlocked. We are to use the public restroom across the street, close the gate during ride time to deter the public, and lock up when we're done. And have fun. And don't get hurt.

  13. Blog updated. Get what's by your name. Didn't put a name on hurricane cuz it seems like it might take two to tango. Don't know if no car and the one who wishes to remain anonymous want to tackle the drink.

    1. I did a little updating as well. Come on, who's going to find the passion fruit juice?

  14. OK, if I am "officially" bringing rum then I am not bringing any buns besides my own. Somebody backchannel XTeric.

    If some of you think we need more rum than I think we need, I might need to take donations. This kind of shit happens all the time, everybody got them cups but they ain't pitched in...

  16. So the count holds at 7, minus a potential Peter or two, plus two, maybe 3 (unknown local?) non-blogging attendees, so a 10 pack of riders with a total of 20 buns?
