Great weekend !! Thanks Clark for all the work you put into this.

Jim , Phil , Lee ,Greg put their faith in me to get us to the start of the Bayle-Hazen in a route I made up in Basecamp Thursday night at 9 PM. Roads in real time don't always match up with the gps !

Guys drop me a PM and I will send you the tracts/ route for the "SPINALCRACKER 220" !! (That's how many miles we rode)

We stopped for food in Wells River at the start of the Bayle-Hazen at a pharmacy lunch counter !!!

I also only got a few photos because I forgot to put the memory card in the camera D'oh

Thanks Clark for everything. Thanks Jamie and Mary for all your work on the food. Thanks Kyle for the morning coffee, which gave us all another excuse to hang out together at the Mens room, without seeming weird. Thanks to the dude that left early so Beez and I could snag his leanto before the rain. Sorry, Jamie, Stretch and Brad for splitting on the ride home, I wanted to take a more direct route and I wanted to slow down a little. And slow down I did, What a huge crop of incompetant Sunday drivers. Can't wait for Recompense.

Clark, good to meet you. Thanks for an impressive amount of work and organization. Will look forward to the next one.

As always, some good riding to be had in those hills.

Had a great time,,, nice to see some old friends and meet a few new ones. We took the LC8 on a dual sport ride that Loph had loaded in his gps....not sure where everyone else went but most of the time there was no evidence (tracks) that anyone else took the same route.

We found mud...




Rocks/ledges...





Trees...



And an irate landowner(sorry no pics).


Usure why this ended up at our campsite...

Thanks to all for a great time, but espescially Clark for all the effort he put in to organise this great event. Then food was great, the weather was great, and the location was great, and all the people I got to meet were great! Got to more than a few FFs who I only knew from the internet, and they were all great guys.

Did a solo ride on Saturday up to Mt Washington, on some of the greatest roads a guy could hope to ride. Rt 5 up the Connecticut River, Lost River Road heading up to Lincoln, The Mt Washington Auto Road, and all the dirt roads Garmin chose for me to finish off my ride back to camp, were all incredible in their own ways.

Only pix I took are from the top of Washington.

Nice meeting you. You're a lot thinner in real life. Well, thinner than the rest of us.

Mike, I'd follow you any were!! What a ride! Thanks for bringing me along and bringing me back alive!
Jim , Lee ,Greg, and Mike are hands down the nicest group of people I have ever met. I'll remember this one for a long time. Met a whole bunch of other nice people at the campsite too. Once again, Clark "da man" (and his helpers). Thanks Clark!

you know it's going to be good when it starts like this!


and then not so good but certainly not insurmountable!


awm was happy, i think he got in 5 or 6 cigarettes on this stop!


fold flap a into slot b? say what?


ok the first patch didn't take, so barry suggested we just swap the tube. we didn't have an 18 with us, but a 21 will work in a "pinch"


only saw one bear (and no mooses)


it sure is purty up here in these hills


the mighty LC8 crew


no shortage of running across these on the route


xmoto is such a ham


the mighty steed. this bike is an absolute hoot to ride. the dual sport loop is perfect for it. not too hard but enough of a challenge in places to make it really fun!

Kyle - provider of all things coffee.



Bub gives us some great tips for the area.



This screams 'Vermont'...

a little gully crossing - nothing difficult - after boats decided to build up the base of the gully a little better - me i just forged across and as usual got caught up in between the logs. boats makin' it look easy.


xmoto bringin' it across


here comes unga


last but certainly not least is the angry white man


next up, a little ledge action


awm starts it out


he wanted to wear a red jacket for the actual drop over the ledge so he traded with boats


one should not be too close to the rear of a super enduro. especially when, as usual, the worst line possible is selected. couple that with a heavy hand on the throttle and you get trenches dug and lots of mud thrown around.

this is a rarity!

Coffee was awesome!
