I didn't take many pictures during the rally but here they are. About time right?

Saturday morning (Really glad Slowfreak shared the camp site>Thanks Greg)

I forget what actually went down here

Headed out to Mad Island a bit ahead of the group it turns out.

Burn down



Beach camp fire

Ferry back

Petonga trail water crossing. It does end a couple hundred feet further...

Lunch stop along the Petonga track


That's all I took. I need to take more next year.

For those that scouted with me one day, this crossing now has a bridge. Two 40' steel beams and 120 railroad ties. Sooooooooo, I'll be able to use it on one of the new tracks for next year.

I thought that water crossing worked just fine as-is

No kidding. I was looking forward to this next year after Cannon's teaser scouting pics.

So what your saying is they screwed it up and put in a bridge? I thought it was great the way it was.

Maybe you can go around the bridge and still get wet?

Well, we'll have to see what that bridge actually looks like (volunteer labor and used materials, etc). Might be that the bridge is more challenging than the original path.

Meeting in Boulder Junction today. They are starting a dual sport club and doing some things to encourage dual sporting in the area. Good news for the rally. Many of you will remember Boulder Junction as the quaint silent sports town that is the first gas stop on the Northern Highland route. This begins an initiative to get single track in the state forest near there.

I also discovered that I have been missing the boat for lunch or dinner there. The Aqualand Ale House has 20 craft beers on tap.
