Hangover Run Jan 2018

The alarm clock going off, with birds singing and the sounds of the babbling brook near our house and the sun peeking out…. Oh wait That was the dream I was having….  It was more like the alarm BLARING, still dark out and everything totally frozen including the babbling brook. Hell it wasn’t even light out yet and the moon was still Bright n full. In any case when we get up to an alarm clock in my house it is almost always because we are doing something fun that day. Today was going to be no exception. I was in charge of the first group going to Tonga Ridge today. The goal was to make high point and get the Hangover trophy.

Christmas Tree Run Dec 2016

6:45 AM Melissa and I roll into the parking lot of the Everett Mall to see more Tamers standing around and talking in the rain than there were volunteers for NW Harvest setting up for their event.

Funny thing… before the Parade the Tamers were asked to help setup for the event because someone thought we were the Teamsters.

Hangover Run Jan 2010

Ah – not only a New Year, but also a reminder of the passage of years. The Hangover Run in years previous used to be attributed to imprudence of how much and what types of alcohol had been imbibed the previous night. Now – for at least some of us who’ve been around the club for more than a few years – hangover is more a measure of how much and the types of food we’ve partaken over the holidays. When we say it’s hard to get into our rigs – it is literally hard to get up into our rigs.
