Title: Invitation: Roll in the Mud with Mr. Mud
Post by: mudworm on February 19, 2010, 10:18:23 PM
You all are invited to come on down to Pinnacles and roll in the mud with Mr. Mud on Saturday, Feb 27, 2010. Let's do it before he gets too old for it. Yep, Feb 28 is his birthday.

The exact spot for the group roll is open for discussions depending on who is coming.

Who is in?

Given he's getting older and not younger, we should just go to the tourist trap. Short approach, easy climbs....

Crap, I'd love to make it. But the girls have a climbing comp that day, in Sacramento. As it is I'll be driving all Friday night to get home for that.

Sounds like FUN, I'm really itching to get to the Valley though. Move it East!

BTW, anyone want to climb up Valley?

Weather for Valley (and Pinns) is supposed to be very iffy. If its still that way I might be tagging along.

I'll have to ask Mr. Mud, what "mullet wig" means.

Oh,  BTW, if rain prevents climbing, we'll still go for a hike at the Pinns, which I'm sure will be equally nice.

Post by: F4? on February 23, 2010, 08:42:27 PM
It never rains at the Pinns.

Folks are welcome at our place saturday.....maybe hit the gym?


Title: Re: Invitation: Roll in the Mud with Mr. Mud
Post by: F4? on February 25, 2010, 07:52:03 PM
What's the deal??

Weather looks wet


Title: Re: Invitation: Roll in the Mud with Mr. Mud
Post by: mudworm on February 25, 2010, 09:22:16 PM
I think some day, Mud should move his birthday to June or something, when it never rains.

Okay, the deal for Saturday is this:

A group gym session at PG SV at 3pm. Then dinner at Xanh (http://www.xanhrestaurant.com/) in downtown MV (yelp link (http://www.yelp.com/biz/xanh-restaurant-mountain-view-2)) probably around 6pm. After dinner, we'll move right over to the lounge area (in the same restaurant) and enjoy the drinks (check out their Cocktail menu). I'll make sure to buy Mr. Mud the "Dirty Old Man" .

You all are invited to join us at the gym, the dinner, and/or for the drinks; at least, come for the drinks! It's going to be wet everywhere but that lounge anyway.

If you can come for the dinner, please reply by 6pm Friday so I can make a dinner reservation.

We may still go for a hike at the Pinns in the morning even if it rains, but since it's probably just us, we'll be flexible on the plan.

It never rains at the Pinns.

The forecast looks promising.....

Mostly cloudy. A chance of showers. Highs in the 40s to 50s. West winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of showers 50 percent.

Looks good to me.

I think the old dog is getting soft!

There is still a 40% chance of it NOT raining.

We wouldn't be wearing shorts, but it would still be nice.

Post by: mudworm on February 26, 2010, 11:33:29 AM
We'll need to make a couple of (not very short) stops on the way back. Carpool probably won't work, I'm afraid.

I declare the storm officially over. 

Looking out over the Pacific the horizon was clear and there was little wind.

It has been written.  It has been read.

What's the problem with some rain?

I thought this was a chance to "Roll in the mud"?

The moss slides by Triple X are always a good diversion when it rains.

I just had an epiphany: A picture is worth a thousand words. So forget about a longer report. Here are the pictures. But first, thanks F4 for hosting the delicious hotpot dinner and the one of a kind birthday gift! Thanks munge for coming out to share a couple of drinks with Mr. Mud. And thanks all who were thinking of him.

Oh, the funny thing was on our way home from the bar after Mr. Mud had a couple of "Dirty Old Man" drinks, the audiobook we were listening to, a World War II memoir, had this in a dialogue: "I'm not a dirty old man; I'm a sexy senior citizen."   :D

Mr. Mud is not old yet. See how flexible he is in these poses?

He was not doing yoga though. He was just admiring the beauty of these early spring flowers at Pinnacles.
