    I thought the big bang was on the 18th? Is the 16th more convenient?

    It was May 18th but that is a Tuesday this year. May 16th is on Saturday.

    I lived in Longview. I remember our living room light was swaying at about 8 in the morning. When we looked out our window we saw the giant atomic ash cloud. Later I went to the fair grounds. I rode the Octopus ride and stared at the looming cloud of ashy doom. The next day we went to the Cowlitz and watched as houses were being washed down the river via pyroclastic flows.

    Awhile back I posted info about the ride to mt. st. helens,and there seems to be some confusion about the date. yes,the main eruption was the 18th.but since most of us have to work that day,{and I'm only guessing here} the run WILL BE ON THE 16TH WHICH IS A SUNDAY,NOT A SATURDAY.I hope that clears it up a little. Oh,and the last time I checked,the number of bikes is now up to 48. its gonna be a good time.

    Brian, I'm thinking of meeting them in Astoria and riding back to Oly with them. We could both do that then ride back here together. I think they'll be here around lunch time. I have to check my schedule and make sure I'm not working.
