So, who all is going to be there?

I wasn't planning on going, but Me and Emily are talking about it. Problem is the distance to get there for us :(

I am going to be leaving from San Diego Saturday in the very wee hours of the AM. I'm thinking around 3:30AM so that we definitel get there before the scheduled events at 9AM. Feel free to email me at jessefeng [at] gmail [dot] com if you'd like to organize a caravan. I am located in the Mira Mesa area.

I believe all runs begin at the campsite Saturday morning.  Run number three sounds like a lot of fun.

Looks like I won't be there on time to make any of sat day runs due to double soccer games,  but still could meet up later in day at camp or lunch time since I would be leaving my place @ 10am after the games. 

 At the momemt kind of lost my voice, so I'll see how things go sat and try to make it out :D

i don't think I am going to go to the campsite. it's 40 miles away where we are going to wheel.  I am going to go up to big bear and grab breakfast and wait there.

Sarah and I had a great time with you all on Sat.  Sorry we had to pull away @ Hwy 18.  Didn't think we would make it home by 5, didn't want to lose the baby sitter for next time ;)  We forgot our camera, so we will be looking to see all your pix.

Thanks again for the invite, we look forward to wheelin with ya'll soon.
