A member of the Steel On Wheels Forum suggested a Virtual Meetup for forum members. I don’t know why I never thought to blog about it. I think it’s a great idea. The local weather seems to be cooperating for tomorrows event, so a friend and I are taking part. Here’s how it was presented on the Forum:
A Virtual Meetup 4/22 for a moonrise/sunset ride.
As adventurepdx illustrated so well for us, a ride to take in the moonrise and sunset from a strategic spot can be great fun. I was so inspired by his example, I decided I’d pursue this form of micro-adventure for myself.
Then I thought it might be fun to invite all my Steel on Wheels Forum buddies to join me…from where ever you are. On April 22, the full moon falls on a Friday. So those of us with a typical work week might find it more practical to get away for the evening.
The idea here is that who ever is interested in participating will do their own thing…in their own location…in their own way, and follow-up, posting here about their experiences. Simple…and potentially amusing. If my schedule allows, I might try for a practice run on March 23. But the virtual ride meet-up is scheduled for April 22.
Anyone out there want to join in?
We are planning on a spot in West Duluth called Bardons Peak. Should be a nice spot to view both the sunset and moonrise. Here’s a picture from last September from the same spot:
