All of those nice pics make me feel like a DOPE for not at least trailering over for the weekend.

It all started one night when I was drinking again!
The weather was here and it was beautiful, wish you guys were here that stayed home! Like I said once over here the weather changes quickly!
So ScottPDX and I caravanned over from Portland to Chimney Rock and got there before anyone got the campground... One lonely lost soul was there, BlackTDI, Ben, in a white TDI! Confusing to me too. So we set up camp except for the canopies and things that might blow away! windy windy windy As people came in we helped set up tents, everyone needed some guy wires even after the tents were erected as it was still windy! So once the wind died down, we set up canopies in our somewhat protected area!
One of the first blokes to show up that I knew was Mark!

Scott and Mark worked feverishly to help people set up! Thanks guys!
A shot of pigpen's and scott's stable of bikes set up so they don't fall over in the wind! Too bad I would not even start the XR650R!
The KTM 200 XCW was the weapon of choice for the weekend!

Trees bowing in the wind!

Mark's GS and Crazymike's KLR.

Both of them setting up PNWCMike's tent! Notice the guy lines on the tents in the background!

So ScottPDX and I took a cruise to the other end of the campground. Dead calm, no wind, 20 degrees warmer it felt like, summer I tell you! Notice the water in the background! Maybe we should move down here.... hmmm now that's an idea! Tblume and NoPo were smart and did pull in here to get out of the wind! Smart people!

Back to winter to see what was happening back in camp! More people and then I put the camera away for the rest of the weekend! Doh! Started drinking, eating, planning the riding activities for the rest of the weekend! The rest was history as I have no more photo's! So it never happened anyway!

I wanted to take some time to thank Squishy for all his help, generosity, and food that he brought tot the party! He cooked up some delicious chicken both Friday and Saturday nights, had some wonderful coleslaw and macaroni salad also! If this was all you, Thanks Squishy!!! He also took Scott to Prineville Sunday to get some Transmission fluid for Scott's thirsty F350 tranny, while Super D and I held down the fort and watched the bikes! He is always helping out everyone that needs some help.....

After catching up with S1marks, Righty65, Petrolburner & Leenpockets Saturday morning on Little Bear Creek Rd,
we backtracked to Bear Creek and rode it East and up to Hwy 395.
We stopped a few times along the way....








We saw some great vistas, on this GREAT and long dirt road just South of the Lower Ochoco NF.








After an awesome (good enough ) frozen pizza lunch at Paulina,
we headed onto the South Fork John Day River Rd.

This road was a treat with my sidecar rig, smooth,
with few ruts or potholes; just good twisty & sideways dirty fun.





And beautiful; it's back into the forest and off the sagebrush plains.
Riding along in that narrow canyon,
with this little river always beside us for 20-30 miles was excellent therapy.




Petrolburner stopped our train at these cascading falls,
which pictures do NOT do justice.
Much nicer to experience in person

S1 climbed up the bank a bit to get a better perspective on my posed shot of Petrolburner and Leenpockets:






From there, S1, Righty65 and I headed off towards Mitchell,
leaving petrolburner and leenpockets to backtrack back to camp,
...skipping the long pavement ride ahead of us.

First Mitchell, then on to Prineville,
testing the range of a couple of our gas tanks (not the GS).
The weather cooperated just fine today,
we only got sprinkled on here and there, never enough to get wet.

We left Righty65 in Prineville to meet up with a buddy of his for dinner,
then S1 and I rode back into camp about 7pm.
Looking fondly back on a long and satisfying ride in wide open Central Oregon,
without traffic to taint our memories.

Yes ------Thank You Squishy for the good food and company. Hey Pigpen I really wanted to try your 200 for a quick blast but thought I should leave that question alone. Had a great time even though I spent 90% of my time on camp patrol keeping things weighted down with rocks. The wind was brutal Sat. afternoon.

Seeing those pics really makes me wish I'd continued on north on the South Fork Rd with you guys, especially since when I got back to camp I got a reprieve from having to head home. Nice looking stretch of scenery there.

Even Lexie seemed sad that we were packing up to leave.




The ride home with s1marks on that Sunday was most excellent. We decided to take the long way home. I've ridden all around it, but had never seen the Painted Hills Lookout, South of Cherry Creek Ranch, so today Mark and I made some time to check it out. There are some great valley views through this looooong section of nothing but beauty...






Here's Mark, riding up to Horse Heaven:




The tired old pickup, that acts as Sentry for these old Cinebar mines
