I'd meet at Skykomish to park and ride the bikes a few miles up the road to the Money Creek area. TONS of exploring in this area; was once a major mining district.
I'd be there about 9:30 - leaving Kirkland at 8:15.

Who is up for a ride?

Changed out my tires already (changed the rear 2x thinking it had a leak, couldn't find one, need to go check it...lol)

Anyway...I'm going to be weather dependent, but I'd like to join.

At his point I avoid rain and nasty conditions - the weather looks PERFECT: http://www.weather.com/weather/5-day/USWA0410
3 other riders can't make it - come on up 100%!

I explored this area years ago via mountain bike and hikes 15-20 years ago, don't expect me to recall exactly where to go Hello

Craig, i cant make it out on thurs, but i can go on sat 10/1. Sounds like you're set on Thurs, but if you can go on a sat (or anyone else), let me know. Otherwise, i'm probably going to Walker again.

*green with envy that you can get away during the week;)*

Underground exploring:

If this is still reachable by bike, I am heading in. Hardrock mine with NO winzes (straight drops down that will kill you..) - bring 2 flashlights
