    Road condition report:

    166 E from 101. Pristine.
    33 S from 166. Pristine.
    Lockwood Valley from I-5 heading West, 1 nasty turn with lots of gravel, once you pass that, just a few small rocks to dodge. Good to go all the way in.

    All water crossings are dry. 65 and sunny in the day, 30 at night. No rain in the forecast. :-)

    New camp host is Jim. (Nice dude about 1/2 way up the sites in a white camper van on the right after the stream.)

    Camp sites are $20.00, additional bikes $5.00. (50% discount over cages.)

    Purdy cool.

    Damn, I’d sure much rather be there than where I’m at right now. No drama on the way out, did see Santa and Matt riding in on Lockwood. Don’t forget to finish all MY beer!

    Shower sure felt good when I got home!
