Just wanted to thank all the folks for the fantastic orginization and fellowship this past weekend. Thanks for havin us up!
And big ups to Pete and San for lettin me tag along.


I love the Flori-duh weather but the sand has nothing in comparo to the physical challenge of what we get up in Murphy.

How about some action shots? Outlaw creek crossing.

Fri after lunch (and rain), parking on the River Road.

Outlaw creek crossing Sat.


Fri morning rain run on 82.

My FL battle buddie Todd showing how a flatlader drops in to Point of No Return - Sat afternoon. His exit was a bit more dynamic.

Pete on the reverse single track drop in.

And my vote for "Man of The Match" - well played son!

Pete and RC sorting the line on Hamburger Hill.

Good Times!

A million thanks to all those that contributed to such a great trip!

Especially all the food

For those that did not enjoy the Bowmore I will bring some girls whiskey to the next one

Thanks Sanjoh for bring us up!

A shot from Friday

Only one flat on Friday..better than in the prior beavers that's for sure. Sorry I had to miss the Saturday happenings - but the upside was the daughter's volleyball team swept 4 games on Sat.

Looks like riding was good on Sat - glad for that!

Spacelord climbing the slick 434 powerline on Friday.

Keep that momentum going man.

Stop & go penalty rock.

Tukata's turn to make his piggy KTM 950 climb while the Icelander gives him moral support.

Sanjoh (AKA-the Hyundai Santa Fe Stig impersonator)is at the bottom trying not to get roosted by Mefo debris as he picks his line, while simultaneously trying to preserve his retina burner light setup.

It was a team effort, but unbeknownst to us,this was just an easy rehearsal for the Beaver Dogsled crew on Saturday. Mush on gents!

I just want to add that I really appreciate Gentry taking the time to mow our campsite before he left!

WOW! Great pics so far, I can’t wait to see more.
I had a blast…. Even though I’m sore, I’m ready to do it again minus “The point of no return”.
Thanks to every one for getting me back on the road after that giant nail impaled my rear tire.
Great team work by the Beaver Dog Sled Crew.
Big thanks to all who organized the event.

So after emerging from the lunch stop Saturday, we see Mr. Twisty and Ferdinand the Icelander changing the Icelandic front tire.

Apparently, this is the proper way to park a bike in Iceland.


Localmoto warming up on the single track hill climb after lunch. Keen eyed inmates will notice the albino muffler on the KLR. It gives 5.23 extra hoss powa.



Beaver Dog Sled Crew preparing to mush bike #4 up the Point of No Return.

A moment of rest and exhaustive contemplation... or rather contemplative exhaustion, before getting back to work.

Fido

A Big Thank You

Still getting my pictures loaded, mainly because i'm lazy.....

That was fun gentleman.
Thank you for the help with everything. Glad this was a small affair and look forward to the next one.

Please let me know how we can improve.
The numbers were changing so fast that the food/beverage choice could not be extrapolated.

Thank you to Tellico Motorcycle Outfitters and ADV Monster for donating some sweet Swag.

It was nice to see the regular faces and make some new friends.
More to follow

A few more action shots from the weekend.

Mr.Twist doin it all right - outlaw trail creek crossing Sat morning.

And not so right?

Same crossing with a leg out for balance - no touch - no point off .

All that MX training payin off.


Jumpin around on 82 in the rain Fri morning.

RC clearing the mid-trail ceek on Hamburger Hill Thr afternoon warm up ride.

Check out the front end stuff on that 250 - clean run on the Power Line = quality.
