i plan on going by the site and leaving flowers sometime this week.
hey joey. I just got back from the site. I dropped off some flowers. On the way there I was planing on what to say when i got there, but I went to drop them off and nothing would come out, i got all choked up. Im gonna stop by tomoorw and try and get something out. Oh, hey and to top off this grand ****ingtastic day, my GF broke up with me like 15 mins ago. WOOPIE GREAT DAY

Anywho, for the ride. We plan on hittin up the main trails. Coolside, Tunnel trail and maybe some of the OHV park if we really feel like it. Basicaly, if you dont like riding alone, come with us, but if you plan on shuttling with us some gas money would be nice seeing how its pushing 250 a gallon

ok so we're leavin from home (gold river) at 8am so we'll be up there around 830 or 845. captpollution leave about that time and we'll meet at top of tunnel i think. doesn't look like anyone else here is interested so it'll be TC and pat, so 5 of us. but anyone else join us at that time at the begining of tunnel trail, on the lake clementine road thing.

yea, you and i are shuttling. you meet us at the bottom at confluence and i'll drive to the top, give me a call when ur at confluence. i don't have a confirmation from Pat yet but that doesn't matter, he shows or he doesn't, we leave at 8 anyway. Also we're gonna need to get more money from the guys seeing as gas prices are up to 2.47, last time we auburned it was 2.09.

Lots of people die every day. We should feel sorry for the soldiers that die in Iraq. Not some kid who drinks too much and drives MOM's SUV into a tree.
Regardless of the situation, it is very sad. Part of growing up is making mistakes and learning, hopefully none of them kill you.

First friend that I had die was during high school. Suffered brain damage from an accident during a bike race (velodrome). I still think about him frequently.

Conundrum1, my thoughts are with you during a difficult time. Keep riding and doing what your friend would want you to do.

Been there too in high school w/ girl friend passing away in stupid car accident.

Please make sure you visit the parents of your fallen friend, They are going thru some heavy times right now. And then check in on them, to see how they are doing.
