You must of missed the left turn by the cave then and went down where you lost the trail.
I guess I lucked out that I was there in the evening and saw all the flashing lights at the check point so I turned around and bypassed them through some trails. I didn't want to take a chance after I got pulled over on I-15 and got a ticket for not working trailer light. After I wiggled the connector it started to work, but I guess that's too late because it didn't work when I got pulled over and I suppose to make sure they work before I start to drive. Friday night is probably not the night to go out

Chief Joseph Hwy was awesome this morning!



Beartooth was 37 degrees... the it started raining, stopped just shy of 11,000' to put on the rain gear... Then the snow started.



Planning to hit Devils tower by this evening.. Maybe my testicles will have thawed but then.

Pushing it hard... Blasting through the twisties at 4 or 5 mph over the limit...



Totally rocking this bitch!




Can you spell final drive failure? Just bearings and a seal.



Don't tell Walrus I blew a seal - makes him jealous...

Big pretty loop , seems a good choice with current temps-
Pineview was indeed a zoo, coulda walked across with all the boat traffic.

Anyone riding in the big MDA parade to Wendover tomorrow ?
I'm gonna go down and pay for "the cause" (perhaps unintentionally ruffle some feathers)- then go the other way .

A few of us utards will be leaving 5 mile for a short day ride tomorrow morning. We'll be leaving the parking lot around 8:30 and then back about 10-10:15 to meet another rider. Should be some good desert fun.

I've got to give Ryman some Props. I was on the Dinosaur Run 2012 with some Inmates from Colorado last weekend when a rider in our group fried his clutch in a sand section of trail we encountered. He limped his bike into Jensen, Utah our only fuel stop for the day. While sitting there trying to figure out how to get help for our Colorado inmate, I remembered that Ryman lived in Vernal. I didn't have his number so I texted GISKev for his number. Kevin sent me Rymans number. I called him and without hesitation he said, "I'll get my trailer and be there in 20 mins".

Talk about the ADV hookup. I don't know of many internet communities where you can rely on complete strangers for help. I knew Ryman but Charles didn't. The rest of the group was thoroughly impressed with Ryman's willingness to help an inmate. I hope some day I can be in a position to help an inmate in distress(insert Pluric's comment here). Thanks Ryman you will be part of the RR for the Dinosaur Run 2012 forever.

I've got the main loop, but you may need to clean it up a bit... pm me an email address that accepts attachments if you want it. googling as much turned up lots too. It's marked really well so you really don't even need one although i take mine everywhere cuz i can.

Decided to go Guardsman's, Mirror Lake, Monte Cristo, back to Lehi today. Fun ride. I'd forgotten about all the, ah, interesting people at the Maverick in Evanston.

I got an unexpected call from Harcus today which culminated in an afternoon ride through a hail/sleet/rain storm.
Thanks for the ride Harcus!
