Oh, man, I wish I had known about that sooner, I probably could have made it. As it is, I can't join, as much as I'd like to.

Yeah, I didn't think to post it here until just last night. Still haven't figured out if I am going or not, but I think I will.

If I really get a wild hair, I may ride up to a Kernels game this summer. We come up to a few of them each year, but would make for a decent bike ride.

Cool, if you do come up for one, PM me about it. The gf and I keep meaning to go to a few, but we haven't gotten around to it yet. We could meet up if you're interested.

Will do. It's 1.5 hour trip each way for me, so would try to find a Sunday afternoon game that I could go to without the wife being mad about me going by myself! We have friends up in the Marion and Robins areas, so we normally go up fairly often. Just not as much this year for some reason.

Had 14 or 15 bikes (can't remember if I counted myself or not!) ride up to Des Moines plus a vehicle with the larger items donated. Had a cart filled with items that we donated to the hospital! My boss went with me and we followed it up with lunch at Jethros BBQ in Altoona, so not too shabby of a day.
