Nice. I'll have to try and ride tomorrow before I go in. You can take trails from right there all the way up the hill... never getting on the pavement again until you want to.

I'm happy; a little sore and tired!

What more could anyone want! We had a great time with fantastic people. This was a great venue for winter, spring or fall. The food was great the people even better. No major mechanical mishaps. Bodily mishaps may be another story. More on that later. Hope you all got home safely; I'm calling it a day! Thanks to all. Steve.

Dwight and I got home about 5:30, nice and safe. I've unpacked and repacked and I'm heading south again.
Great trip, our bikes and us seem to be in one piece. I really like to ride that area, and there is so many more trails out there.
If any of you were wondering about the LA group we were waiting on in Randsburg, had huge problems, the ones who still had unbroken collarbones (2 broke) and running bikes got to Randsburg around 3:30.
Steve thanks for cooking and everyone else for pitching in to make it a trip I look forward to doing again soon. Cindy wants to go too.
Lane I hope you soulder feels better soon.

Yea - I was hoping we could hook up with you guys for a bit but it just wasnt in the cards. 1 broken collar bone, 1 cracked shoulder socket, 1 KTM no spark and a siezed KLX all within about 30 or so miles.
It was interesting but still a good time. Ill be up in coarsegold the last weekend in March so maybe someone could give me a local tour. "Ride on'

I think we have more pics of grocery shopping than riding. My helmet cam picked up some good footage, but it's pointed pretty low, I'll try and get some footage posted, I might need tarmacter's assistance since he's the IT guru.
