There will be no rain!
This is Southern California!

Latest on Rollergirls bike - engine is fine, exhaust packing caused a blockage. Phew, that lets me and my right hand off the hook for now.

Stay tuned for latest hard-core 990 adventure ride.
Mounted both big grey picnic boxes, strapped on big red top bag, packed pink sweat shirt and purple sleeping bag. Made sure that I-pad was fully charged and had new Tinkerbell movie loaded. Dirt wheels installed. GPS left on the shelf. Vague idea of where I was going. Anza-Borrego / split mountain here I come.

Oh yes, 12 year old girl dressed in Rollergirl's clothes stuck on back with I-pod full of angry birds that she somehow thinks she is going to play on the way.

A text that I sent home on saturday night, that never arrived, said "we are lost in the desert. Will follow tracks back in the morning".

Excellent ride. Thanks my little monkey.

Pics soon.

Started off on this road.




Then we went here.




Did a few miles of 2-up sandy whoop practice.




Then headed for Split Mountain.

Today, however, I am feeling depressed. I am depressed because of self-awareness. I am finding it difficult to ignore my leash. My two day leash. I am more aware of my two-day-leash because those in command have decided to give the peasants a three day leash.

. . .

Ten day leash! Yay!
Ohoh, maybe it's better not to tell you, Thursday is the last working day for 2012. And I'll be back in business on the 28.01.2013. . .

Come on, head up. . .

Ok, back to the weekend trip.




No beer on this trip!




Good looking spot to camp.






For those of you who live where it rains, this is an "Ocotillo". They are very drought tolerant!




Watched Tinkerbell - the secret of the wings and then wondered what I was going to do with the remaining 10 hours of darkness. Sunday morning took a long time to arrive. Packed up and headed back with only a few side trips.










Apparently young ladies don't like too much adventure, so we stopped here so that Dad could get a bit of culture.






Yummy tea! And yes, I am comfortable enough in my masculinity to drink from a dainty little tea-cup.




Thank you for a fun weekend my awesome little girl!

Love your ride reports. I recognize almost every location in your photos. I have been slacking off lately and need to get out more.
