Feb 12, Sweetheart Ride - Canceled

#1 Post by john » Mon Feb 06, 2017 1:02 pm

Sweetheart Ride from Chena Pump Landing to the Modo in Nenana for lunch.

Meet @ Chena Landing @ 9:00 AM for a 9:30 departure.

Follow your trusty ride leader Steve M AKA Badgersam

Ride Cancel Issues: If the temperature at the airport is -10 below at 8:00 AM the ride will be canceled.

To get weather information you call 458-3745 and hit 1,1,1,1

Our ride list says -20 below, but the river runs are considerable colder, so we'll be using -10 for this one.

Steve Miresse
I'm open to riding down to -20 if people want to go. After -20, it's hard to stay warm

I should also add that the Fairbanks airport temperature and regional observations on the Alaska Weather Information Line is no longer functional. The hardware along with our phone system was replaced around a year ago and a software coding issue is preventing AK Region from easily porting over these menu options from the old system to the new system. No estimated time on when this will get fixed. :feedup: For current temp at the airport best to check the website weather.gov/Fairbanks. Easiest to hover over the map and click on the Fairbanks "dot," or call us direct at 458-3708.

It's not looking good for the ride tomorrow, my phone says -33 at 10am, maybe we can reschedule this ride for next Sunday, forecast looks great then. We can discuss at the meeting Wednesday.
