It may be white out there. The forecast calls for 1-3 inches of snow friday night and a low of 4 with NW winds 10-14 mph for Saturday night. That would be a windchill of -11 to -14. Who's in?

Sorry Omigo, 1-3" of white means I have to work. Or at least stay home, look out the window all night, and hope to work.


However, I will wish I was there. When I thought I was going to be gone, I gave permission for a whole pile of 13 year old girls to have a slumber party. Maybe I'll sleep in the camper anyway.

Soft? Not this weekend.

Pictures it Happened!

Arrived at sunset

TR383's rig



HB's



TR383 gets things going




We have ignition



Enjoyed a couple hours benchracing, the train operators seemed to enjoy the fire, they honked as they passed by.




We hope to attend next months campfire, we won't be riding on two wheels for some time, but we have enjoyed exploring with the Suzuki two-up.

Brrr! Woke up Sunday morning to 9 degrees, assume HB made it home safe, see TR383 has posted so he must be home safe and sound as well. Thanks for putting this together, was nice to see our friends out on two wheels!

Thanks for the pics Katy. I'm glad you two made it out to share the campfire and stories. I can't figure out why more people didn't show up on such a nice sunny weekend. Maybe it was the 20mph+ winds with 30mph+ gusts along with teens for a high and subzero for lows. Oh and the snow also.

We arrived around 1:30 Saturday. There was a couple inches of snow and most of it was blown clean on exposed spots. I had 5 inches of snow at my place Saturday morning. It only got to 18 F for the days high according to my thermometer.



Bobs rig parked out on Cocklebur Flat. Or Cocklebur Camp? This is normally a pond when the reservoir is closer to full.



Yes, it was a little breezy.



Bob is ready to ride! I'm glad I have one reliable riding buddy. He is usually up for a ride most anytime. Even on some of my more harebrained ideas for a ride. See above.



There he goes.





More pics later.

The snow/sand drifts were a little sketchy. Some were mostly sand and some were mostly snow. But you only found out it was mostly snow when you hit it and sank. They all looked like mostly sand on the surface. This one was shallow.



The sand is blown up high enough to touch the wires here.







Some interesting wind blown patterns.



Bob grabbed my camera and took some pics of me throwing roost as the sun was getting low.











Sunday morning about sunrise. Disregard the 40 F as that was when I first put the batteries in the outside sensor when it was inside the heated trailer. That's the last pic I have.

It was a good time and we had the whole place to ourselves.

For comparison purposes, this is winter camping and riding when I was younger. I'm older and wiser now.

Boy no kidding, when was the last time I rode with you? The last I can remember is my September ride of 2012. Say it isn't so.

January 25-26 camping and riding at Birch Creek 10 miles southeast of Oreana. Who knows, I might even leave Friday the 24th and camp two nights.

Edit: Changed dates.
