I've camped at that same spot, right next to the road with a little trickle of a stream down the bank.

WOW, Holy guacamole... I have been home for a week now and been trying to catchup on all my favorite RR's and taking care of personals. You guys have had one hell of of an adventure just trying to read it all made my head spin.




That was a whole lot for me to take in! You Guys are awesome.

Hey Sam!
Yeah, BC was pretty crazy, huh?
Hope it gave you some ideas for next summer...
thanks for the vid - haven't seen that one in a long time!

haha, I'm just going with the wiki.
Oh, wait. I messed it up.
It's supposed to be "ki ki ki ma ma ma" - read the music wiki here.







Day 50: 8/10/12
Near Ukiah, OR to Cranes Crossing CG 222 miles






A chipmunk started yelling outside our tent at 5am.
 Shut up!








Sigh. But, we fell back to sleep ( I still think they're cute ).
Didn’t eat oatmeal until 8:30.







Fast gravel.






Cows.







Seriously slow cows.
(I didn’t know what slow cow was, but it seems like it’s the opposite of Red Bull. Canadian, don’cha know.)







Hey, this is where the Danger Helicopter lives. We had been looking forward to seeing it...






But, he wasn’t home.
Probably off doing something really important...





















The Tower Mountain Lookout.






I took this pic last time, but the info hasn’t changed.














Oh, this would have been a good campsite. Too bad we didn’t remember.






There’s even an outhouse! Bet it’s creepy at night, though.















Oooh, it probably knows too much...





























That sign says Blue Mountain Oregon Scenic Byway.







Oriental Creek, 8 miles.





















We had a lot of fun with Gravitycheck on this road.
It’s a good spot for filming your buddies (if you’re with any).















OK, I think I’ll leave you here for now.
It’s not a great spot, but I really need to get to bed.
Sorry, pretty lame post.


We’ve had a lot going on this week (and none of it good).

I’m determined to finish this report - don’t worry!
It just might take a little longer than I thought.



Here’s a weird (I know, I know) Mameshiba for you...






(°)(°)

I was trying to make boobs. Did it work?

I like the nipples a little lower, a more natural boobie, but some people prefer the kind you posted (I'm guessing she's got implants). :-)

They're just in the upward arc of a "jiggle." You know, like in the opening minutes of On Any Sunday, red sweater...

i'm prepping for f5-dakar madness, working on thread "scanning" tools... did you know that so far for this report, you've posted 3000+ images, not counting videos! (for reference, you posted ~2880 photos in your Summer of Stupid report)


that's madness! what an amazing story. i can't wait for the finish!

Since the stats subject came up. LittleWan you should know that if you sort the ride reports by rating, your thread makes the first page of results.

Congrats

haha, yeah, I guess those were kinda high and implant-y.
At least they’re symmetrical...
not like some people...


(° )( .) <---- Kitty (say goodbye to these, michael!)



Where's that thing from scottmac? . lemme go find it...


I just thought other other nipple option (.)(.) looked a little droopy. But, I guess that’s life. Gravity's a bitch.



(.)(.) <----- maybe a little too much of this. Apogee = Ow. (thanks HWD - vocabulary lesson!)




haha, this is fun!

(-)(-) <---- pierced




(x)(x) <------- Wendy O. Williams couldn't find a good pic online but she was the first to put those electrical tape "X"s on her nipples.




( . )( . ) <------
Christina Hendricks





( o Y o ) <------ we’ll go with these. Go where, I have no idea. But, if I need to use boobs for something else, those are them.

3000+ images, huh? It feels like 10,000!
I am surprised that there are more pics so far than in all of the S of S...I thought I was using fewer photos this time.
Interesting... Thanks, kaia!

hi nuggets - really? Thanks for noticing, but I don't even look at those stupid things.
I was looking for a little while, but every time I checked, the numbers only went down.
It was too depressing (considering how much work goes into a RR), so I stopped.
We get a lot of 1 star ratings, I think.


Now I just do what I like and try not to worry about anonymous ratings.
But it sounds like you're enjoying the report (I hope), so that makes me happy.
Thanks for taking the time to post!








Day 50: 8/10/12 continued
Near Ukiah, OR to Cranes Crossing CG 222 miles



















I think this is Oriental Creek Campground.
We saw a sign for $8, but according to this website, there’s no charge for overnight camping.






























We totally blew past the turnoff for Dale and had to backtrack.








They were doing some road work, but the new bridge is finished.














Dale, Oregon.
According to the internets, the mail for Dale actually goes to Ukiah now.







There was a woman pumping gas at the store, so I had high hopes for the Ladies room!







Too bad it was only 87 octane and full of ethanol
(god, we missed that good chilliwack 94 octane )







This is about the size of the bear we saw leaving Walla Walla.
(poor bear )




Guns are not allowed in store. Careful, there, Annie Oakley.






This may have been an all-time low...
Red Bull, Code Red, and a snickers bar for lunch.




Or, should I say, “high?”





I think we needed it.
Damn chipmunks, waking us up so early... ooh. that’s about how annoying it was, too...







Cool, I was hoping to pick up the latest issue of Tractor House...







Haha, same lame city folk joke as last time.







Last time I also said there were no ladies in Dale...
But, as we saw earlier, there are now...
Yes! The bathroom was soooo much better...








It’s no classy Japanese toilet, but it’s not terrifying anymore, either.

























Oh, I recognize this place...





Haha, this is where we did that silly Ponch and Jon video with Gravitycheck. :ymca
It’s unlisted, so the only way to see it is to dig through the old RR.
I’ll put it here, if you’re curious...









Okay, next stop - Olive Lake!








Okay,
ready?

Friday night Mameshiba!

Excellent ride report, not very many I look forward too. I have been hooked since the Klim rally. The canimal rides were epic. Your efforts are appreciated. Nothing like fresh rubber, especially a 908.

Hi BigDave75!
Wow, I'm glad you found us again, sounds like you've been busy, too.
Thanks for reading!

Aw, glad you're enjoying the report!
Yeah, the KLIM rally was pretty great. we had so much fun.
And, BC - swoon.

thanks for checking in!









Hey you guys,
sorry this thing spends so much time just sitting around lately.

I'm not ignoring you, I swear.
It's been another lousy week.
Not just with work...

my grandfather is in the hospital. It was bad for a while, but he seems to be doing better now.
Also, I've been really sick.
Too sick to do anything but lay in bed and be pathetic.
I'm feeling better today, though.


Anyway, don't give up on me - we still have some good riding coming up...
Some river crossings, some sand (dunes, even!), some Christmas Valley 2 track...
I think some of our most technical riding of the whole trip was on Crane Mountain (at the Oregon/Cali border)...







Day 50: 8/10/12 continued
Near Ukiah, OR to Cranes Crossing CG 222 miles






Olive Lake was a great stop last time.
So pretty and peaceful.







We were looking forward to having snacktime and enjoying the view.
There was a cute chipmunk taking a dustbath, but I didn’t get the camera out in time.
Darn it!


Just as Matt and I were settling down on this shady bench, we heard a bunch of yelling...






There was a shrill, female voice shrieking, “you always ruin everything! I hate you and I hate my life!”
and then loud footsteps going down the dock.
A man followed her. Her dad, probably.

Great.
Couldn’t you go back to your campsite for this BS?



But, no. They had to subject everyone to their crap.
(we had the bench to ourselves, but there were people in lawn chairs on the other side,
as well as people in canoes on the bank)



Anyway, there was all kinds of drama - screaming, crying (fake crying), whining...
Bargaining, pleading, threatening (all from the same girl)...
And we had a ringside seat.

The Olive lake Tree of Trust.





I had my back to them, so I assumed it was someone’s bitchy teenage daughter,
ruining the family’s vacation.
But, Matt said it was actually someone’s 40-something year old wife or girlfriend.
ruining everyone else's vacations.



Awesome.



Worst. snacktime. ever.




On the plus side, we saw another osprey catch a fish!
I have another crappy photo to show for it.
Oh well. It was neat, I promise.







Back on the road...

























We were heading into Sumpter for fuel.












Noticed a lot of For Sale signs in Sumpter this time...
It must be rough to make a living in these small towns, even in a strong economy.
But, lately? So sad.



















Luckily, the gas station was still open.


















Remember this joke from last time?






I think the egg was even bigger this year.













I went inside this time (got an otter pop).
It was so nice in there with the AC blasting.





We were talking to the guy behind the counter and, to make conversation,
asked him how far it was to Seneca.
(we’ve only been there via the dirt)


He said, “Where?”
Seneca.
“Seneca? Is that in Oregon?”



He had all kinds of maps in the store, so we all started looking.
What the hell? Why can’t we find Seneca?
It seemed to be just beyond the boundaries of every map he had.
I think he was starting to think we were full of BS.
No, really, Seneca is in Oregon! It’s close to Sumpter, even.

Uh huh. Sure it is.




We never did find it on his maps.
I'm sure he thought we were just stupid city folk, confused as usual.
Or Kalifornicators, hopped up on Four Loko.
(this was where we bought the Four Loko last time )





Here, I have a map now.
It’s 82 miles away, on the slab.

A is Sumpter, B is Seneca.






It’s not like they were on other ends of the state, either.
Again, A is Sumpter, B is Seneca.







Anyway, at least we weren’t crazy.
We might have been tempted to buy some Four Loko again, but they don't sell it at Sumpter anymore.
He said it wasn't a big mover.



Some old rusty things for the ride report.







Leaving Sumpter, there’s a short detour on an ATV trail.
it wasn’t much.







They have warning signs when you go the other direction...
Max width of 50”

Gravitycheck’s photo from 2010







After single track, this was huge!






















Hmm. I'm not quite ready with the last photos.
I guess I'll leave you with some cow butt...






Aww, too bad we've pretty much over done Baby Got Back...

And I already used Culo...

How 'bout some Shake Your Rump?
