Thanks to Joel and his crew for a great event. It was good to see my buddy Lonestar and two other Catherders, Pomo and UPST8 again. If any of you come East give me a shout, I've got 8 acres of heaven and if the cabin gets full, there's always room to camp.

Is the whole road graded like that? That looks like a nice fire road in a national forest, minus the trees...

Movie Road is doable (usually) in a car. Nice scenery. Lot's of roads and trails out of Lone Pine. Worth looking into.

Southern California Noobs (and others who want a giggle...)

The temps in Anza Borrego are supposed to be only 88 on Sunday, very possibly the last comfortable day in the park.

Want to ride, let me know if you want to come too. The roads in Borrego are not as noob friendly as some of the noob rides in Death Valley, they had a lot of rain this winter and most of the roads are in washes so expect stretches of sand and rocks and/or some steep rutted hills (depending on the road).

send me a pm.
