    It's time to do it again! Last years Report: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=328355

    Here is the plan: Meet at the Gas Station next to McDonald's off the 15 fwy and hwy 138 @ 7:00. Head out to <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placeName w:st="on">Pioneer</st1:placeName> <st1:placeType w:st="on">Town</st1:placeType></st1:place>. If you have never been there is a cool little town with a unique restaurant/bar. Here is the link if you want the check it out: http://www.pappyandharriets.com/. The food is good and the drinks are cold! I plan on going at a good pace in order to make it there and back in a reasonable time. I plan on doing as much dirt as possible. If you plan on going I suggest having a 100 mile range mim. Everyone is welcome to go and no one will be left behind. Knobbies are suggested and a C+ riding skill is recommended. (Plan on doing 140 miles+) If some people don't want to do the loop going back you can take the fwy back home from Pioneer Town.

    This year snow may be an issue so the route may have to be modified a bit. I plan on trucking the 950 and 400 out to the 15fwy & 138. Ride out to Pioneer Town and head back to-wards the 15fwy/138. At some point on the way back I'm going to break off and head back up to Arrowhead for the night. I will make sure everyone will make it back to the meeting spot or fwy before I peal off. We had a great ride last year and this is one of my favorite rides.

    Here is Riceless's report and pic of last years ride!:http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=329809

    I am a D- rider and probably on the wrong bike for your ride (Strom), but was planning a trip up through Yucca Valley to Pioneertown and see how far I can go on Burns Canyon road toward Big Bear in the next few weeks. Will keep an eye out for fellow ADVer's.

    This is a definite "maybe." Just depends on how many SAU's ( Spousal Approval Units) I deplete going to the races this weekend and what bus man duties (for son's lacrosse team) I have next weekend.
