    well i'm home...

    biggy's spot reports the group just passing pismo... guess they decided on one check at pozo too!

    i needed to get back by 7pm for the babysitter so dave (right? sry if not!!) and i took off at elkorn & 58 on 7 mile to soda lake road, crossed over 133 to cerro noroeste/mil potrero/cuddy valley (where there was snow at the side of the road :vardy ) back to the 5 (by way of a small saloon to 'warm the soul' first). :1drink

    great ride, too bad i had to leave early but i'm also glad not to be on the 101 right now....! :eek1

    a few pics later.

    I´m in now too. Of course I live out here. I enjoyed the ride and the company. It is nice to see some familiar faces and meet some new friends. Big thanks to all of the ADVrider electrical wizards for tracking down my short circuit so quickly. :clap And Joel, Thanks for including me, it is always fun. :D

    Just got in. Nice to ride on this side of town for once. Usually I have the extra hour on the road.

    Lots of good stories, no major damage, hope all get home safe.

    Thanks Joel for all the hard organization you put in on this. :evil


    Mike,

    5 of us on the 101, CHP pulls up next to us. I look down and see 72 mph true ground speed. :huh Not even a glance. They must be on a work slow down. :clap

    Joel, Thank you for your efforts in the herding of the Kats, After spilting off from the group Rick led us on a little tour of Maricopa and Taft. :puke1

    We stopped at the oil museum and got sucked in for a couple of hours, Afterwards we backtracked to Reyes Creek for lunch and then back down the 33 and on home.:D

    I took a bunch of pictures but for some reason they don't want to jump out of my camera and into my computer.:cry Will try to post some later.

    Will see you guys&gals at Warped if not sooner.:clap
