Re: Renting an RV suggestions, tips and reccomendations

Thanks Switch. I had checked on craigslist and saw a few advertised this way. Just curious if anyone else has ever done this.

Renting an RV suggestions, tips and reccomendations

Hi all,

My wife is proposing a trip along the Oregon Coast?  Looking for local recommendations for RV rental places?  Vancouver and Washington.  Anyone else rented and had a good experience.

Suit packing for the commute

Thanks All.

Great advice. I will look to pick up the 2 Wheel bag. It looks like exactly what I am hoping for.

Also great advice about the laptop and backups. I had not considered the jolts my hard drive will be taking on a bike on the way to work.

Suit packing for the commute

Hi all,

Finally decided that the only way I am going to get more riding into my week is bike commuting.
My work has showers and a bike room so I am good.

Just wondering if I can get some recommendations for backpacks or panniers for the packing of a suit ( until i sort out a locker etc).
I would also like it to hold a 15 inch laptop and maybe a lunch.

thanks in advance for any help

Fromme Parking Lot

Tried the parking lot out for the first time on Monday night when I only had an hour from 7 pm til 8 pm before I had to be home to finish a work proposal. It was great in that it likley allowed me an extra lap of Floppy Bunny that I might not have had time for if I had been riding up from the mall.
Lot was maybe half full, all with mountain bikers as far as I could tell. Nice setup. Good work District of North Van.
Its great for a few quick laps but overall I am a little disappointed with the hours. I was hoping for a 6 am til 10 pm timeframe to allow those before and after work rides for those of us with young kids.

Yeah, but I preordered hops. ~$1 per oz for most, bought by the lb.

Thanks Connor. So really its just pre orders that are cheaper. Good to know.

Going into the USA tomorrow for an overnight trip? Are homebrewing supplies cheaper across the border? I have heard someone mention hops are cheaper? if they are I will drag the wife and kids to somewhere in seattle or bellingham to stock up…… Anyone bought supplies in the USA and found them cheaper?

Cool, vanilla stout would be great. I liked the ninkasi version when I had it.
Actually bottled a Rye IPA 2 weeks ago ( a Wookey Jack clone) trying for the first time tonight. Always nervous when I try a newly bottled Homebrew…..will it live up my own hype and excitement.
Wishing I had done a Irish Red for St Paddies. Next Year

Bottling up our coffee chocolate stout tonight. Pretty excited. Anyone ever bottled with some lactose ? I am going to do half with lactose and half without to see what the effect is. My wife is a huge fan of P49 Ugly Sweater. Wish me luck

Beer

I think it's time to start up a hops farm. There is going to be a major shortage in the coming years and even some non-proprietary variants will be in high demand.

This was our damage last night between five of us - lots of incredible beers. Highlights were Stille Nacht reserva, Parabola, Fou Foune, BA Speedway, Blend Love

WOW. Those are some impressive beers. I have a speedway stout in my cellar that I have yet to try, happy to hear it is worth waiting for.

Beer

I had the Pilsner and the Stout from bomber and definately didn't notice any metallic taste. Wonder if it was a batch issue. Pilsner was really good. Have the ESB in the house but haven't cracked it yet.

Well actually that is quite a relief. Like I said, I really liked the atmopsphere and the vibe of the brewery and as another friend pointed out to me, I really liked Bomber's Cask at an event last year. So I will head back in a few weeks and try them again. I find that its rare that I immediately love a brewery ( except for Bridge and 33 acres that is, LOVED them immediately)
And to clarify, the Bomber beer was good, just not drive over every Friday for a fill good ( yet)

I checked out Bomber Brewing last week. Very cool tasting room and setup….but as excited as I was about the beer, it did not click for me. It had a sort of coppery aftertaste that seemed to linger from beer to beer. I bought a growler to try it a few days later ( got their ESB) and found I could still taste it.
I am not giving up on them though. I plan to give them a month or two and head back as I have found many small breweries seem to refine their tastes a few months in.

Managed to grab a singularity 2014 yesterday by the way. Will cellar for a year at least but happy to have it.
Also got some Elysian Split Shot, and Green Flash Palatte Wrecker and their new Black CDA.
