I imagine leaving WA by around 6pm is conceivable for some people. After the loop drive and back to Issaquah Brew House @ ~ 6pm, I may actually bid adieu and drive home myself.

Just got the 99 back from the shop. I have a short somewhere that is draining the battery, but I'll just leave the battery disconnected when not in use. I'll be there if it kills me.

I'm really sorry I didn't make it guys



I really wanted too, but after taking a trip last week to CUba, I couldn't pull anymore stunts at work; however, I did think about calling in with some sort of explosive digestive bacterial Cuban infection.


I take it you guys had a blast, why wouldn't you?


Post up some pics!

Looked like fun! Can't wait to see more pics...

It was a blast, and we had a great turnout. I've got just one pic to add, from the drive (admittedly not the best photo in the world...).

Cheers-

FYI, it wasn't me who spilled gas down the side of my car! We're not allowed to pump our own gas here in Oregon. ...and I was parked the right way around before. These pics were taken after the drive.
