Just want to give a shout out to Joel and everyone else who organized a great weekend! This was my first Death Valley trip and I had a blast. Looking forward to next year.

Back in the land of entrapment after about 12 hours of driving. Sorry if I woke anybody up rifling around the camp at 5AM!

HUGE thanks to the organizers, ride leaders, supportive wives, and faithful dogs. This was my first time in Death Valley and it was a blast. Obviously Joel and his crew know what they are doing.

Thank you John (rruugger), Rich (M1jeep), Rob ?(KlrRob) and Ersin (FYYFF) for taking your time showing me the way....
See you all next year.

+1 I was the other F800 on that ride and thanks for your patience guys. Lior hooked me up with a brand new TKC 80 so me and the bike made it home but I am sick of changing tires right now.

Another awesome rally. Big thanks to everyone who helped pull everything together. I had a great time and enjoyed every bit of it.

Chloride cliffs/Titus was good times the whole group moved at a nice swift pace , fix'n flats, relaxed lunch , retriving GPS instruments from rruugger's bike (thanks again for that ratchdaddy) and back to camp before dark and its all good. Glad you guy's decided not to to turn around in Chloride.

thank you everyone for your participation and supporting this event.

if it wasn't for the volunteers, contributors and sponsors, the results won't be this good.

i'm overwhelmed by the positive attitude, sincerity and generosity of many in this event.

next year, it will be hard to top this one, but with all your support let's give it a shot.

hope everyone got home safely and with lots of good memories. i wish all those who had misfortunes heal quickly and be back on the saddle soon.

you heard me many times being appreciative to all our sponsors who provided us the awesome raffle prizes. right? now that the prizes are in your hands, it's your turn to thank our sponsors directly. if you need their contact info, pm me, bigtodd and conteacher.

see you all on the trail or nearest denny's.

joel
