One Week, 2 XRs, Reno to Yosemite

Back in 2013 my wife Lauren and I were supposed to head down for the Family Off Road Adventures Yosemite Dual Sport Ride at the end of September. Unfortunately due to the Rim Fire, that never happened. So fast forward to September 2014. After healing up from some some moto-related injuries… Lauren destroying her knee pretty good in a local GP and me going over the bars and breaking my Scapula in June training for V2R, we were more than ready for an adventure!

Plan was to take a week off, leave our house outside of Reno, head down through Bridgeport (somewhat following 395) down to Lee Vining, up and over Hwy 120 through Yosemite to Buck Meadows for the 2014 Family Off Road Adventures Dual Sport ride and back home. Being that we were on XRs, Lauren on a XR250R and me on a XR650R, our goal was to ride as much dirt as possible and check out some cool stuff along the way. Bodie, Buckeye Hot Springs, Mt. Patterson, Yosemite and whatever else that would catch our eye. Little did we know we would also encounter silt, pouring rain, snow, a broken chain, a tow truck ride and more, including a surprise overnighter in Mammoth. But, isn't that why we do what we do? It's about the adventure, the memories, the stories and the great people you meet along the way.
