Would have been nice to have one of these down there, Gus had a SPOT but it was not an option when I left to push the button.

InReach would good since it can be 2 way sat communication on a budget.

Congrats Jason and thanks for the great pics/vids. Wish I could have rode with you guys. I love blazing trails through the woods.

Rode in an enduro on Sunday. Got my ass thoroughly kicked (with a dose of heat exhaustion) and somehow squeaked by with a 3rd place class finish.

Whaaahhhh!

I'm really regretting staying home just to work overtime rather than go to this epic adventure.


I am so ashamed of myself.

The 3 of us from Illinois had a blast, thanks to all for the event. Special thanks to DrLewall for taking us on a personnel tour. Some pics to follow
DrLewall took us down Warloop

We had one rider chicken out so Dr took the bike down, if he only knew what he was riding. The walk of shame...

After a nice ride we did lunch at one of Dr favorites, darn good too.

Some more sight seeing,



Once back at WR we had to address a few things on the bike Dr drove down the hill


Just minor thing, clutch cable, brakes, engine mount bolt. Here is the so called mechanic.

After the repairs a great dinner was enjoyed by all. Sorry I forgot to take a pic of desert, it disappeared to quick.

Thanks again. John B./rustynut2

The rest of the pics from Belleville Illinois to White Rock can be seen here. 1230 miles for me. http://s129.photobucket.com/albums/p232/beckerjs/slap/

I think you'll be more popular. No way I'll go, but I think you'll attract all the crazy Okies, Daron, Ted and others that can't get enough of that single track rough crop.

You must be the reason I look so lost and confused Ted. It was Saturday morning and you all had enough shine Friday night to think it was Sunday morning when I showed up. Thanks for letting me tag along. I had a blast other than all the dust. I had to stop in Durham to wash the dust/bug juice combo off the visor so I could see again.

Ted really enjoys seeing you at these events Kris. It means you're not at his house.

Nice report rustynut.

I think my Lubbock bike might be a KLR. hmmmm.

Kris I know about DUST with those mf'ers. I ate jeffro and husaberg 570 dust all day....but it was FUN !!!!

And I say leaders (TED!!!!) have to donate to an air filter inventory!!!!! Of course when you do eight miles in several hours dust is not a worry

What Doc means to say is you were really lucky! He keeps the banjo music queued up on his boom box. Wink Wink, Nod Nod, Bah Bah

I do like the dust free riding Gus.
The mileage sounds like a mtn bike ride! But I probably would not go onto that trail on a mtn bike. dern lose as# trail.

by the way.....a combination of epic adventure, stuff with semester-elementary ending, & nice weather makes me feel like I just got back from a two-week vacation. All I REALLY want to do is ride in the woods. But packing up/yard crap and getting outta dodge has reared its head(s).

anyway. mornin
