    10 AM and still no Travis....Need to get moving if I am going to keep the schedule. Still very little sun and lots of miles before I crest the summit. Over a foot of snow fell late Thursday night, and from the looks of it, none had melted off. Temps were showing low 20's and I was ill prepared for the next 40 miles. So badly I wanted top take pics of the summit, but my hands wouldn't cooperate, and my mood had deteriorated dramatically by that time.

    The good thing about the summit is it passed me over to the East slope where there actually was some sun...Not that it help a whole lot, the damage was done. I pulled over at the bottom of 108 where it joins 395 to use my portable hand warmer (exhaust pipe) and have a slug of luke warm coffee. At least the view was nice. A few more miles into Bridgeport and I could gas up, warm up and air down....

    Took a short break at the Shell station in Bridgeport and chatted up some other adventure travelers. Looked at some fancy Big BMW's and some Blue collar XR grunt bikes. Dropped the front to 18 and the rear to 20 and hit the dirt

    Quick lunch in Bodie, more adventure bikes, and it was time to hit it out to Hawthorne via Bodie/Lucky Boy Pass.

    Final resting place in Hawthorne, WPA DoIt.... It really is like an Aspergers convention. An odd collection of financiers, tech-geeks, chemists, shut-ins, and rocket scientists....yes rocket scientists.... Building beautiful explosive art.

    Oh man did I get Deja Vu reading your ride report lol :lol3 I remember having that same thought running through my mind after wandering down off of Mt Fillmore on some very vague single track and being happy to finally pop out onto Poker Flat rd...... that happiness lasted 30 seconds before starting down the pinball machine rd!! I distinctly remember thinking uh oh :uhoh then it started pouring rain :hack thanks for the laughs and knowing I'm not the only sucker to lose a hand to the dealer :beer

    I was there maybe week before you doing very loose interpretation of the PCQ :muutt
