So, something happens with some sort of rodenty creature that a century ago would have been made into a fur coat that supposedly tells us how much more winter we're gonna have. What I don't get is, so the bugger sees his shadow and we get more snow, right? So Punxsutawney Phil (or, as he is known to science, rodentia meteorologicus) comes out on a sunny day, and it's six more weeks of salt trucks and snow shovels? I don't get it. This goes on my list of evidences that Old Timey New England folks spent most of their time in bars or licking toads or something.

But I digress.
It seems something else is happening tomorrow, something rather more important than an easily startled woodchuck with a fan club. What was it again? Something reggy - Reginald? Regency? Regurgitation? No, it's...
Yep, at NOON on February 1 the phone lines (so to speak) will open, and you'll be able to sign up for your location of choice. The consensus seems to be largely for Death Valley, though no one's gonna get upset if you want to go elsewhere. Me, the last two times I didn't go to Death Valley, I felt like I was missing out on something amazing - and I was. It's a place of strange magic. Also, there's a little barrel cactus at the top of Jubilee Pass that I want a summertime picture of.
SO: round about noon tomorrow, click on "REGISTRATION" up there (or right here) and you'll go to the Ride registration page. If, under the pull-down menu for "Ride location I'm registering for," you can see, well, anything, you can register.
If you want to go to Death Valley, you'd probably best not dawdle. There are NO reserved spots for anyone this year - it's strictly first come, first served. DV hasn't sold out the last couple of years, but indications are that may change this year, so... there ya go!
Onwards, rockin' folk!
