    Just sent text. Downed tree limbs necessitate a small bonfire. Movies at home a few beers or wine and champagne . All welcome to stand around a fire for a bit then movies and snacks. Y'all know where we are. HDMI cable gets you a sticker.

    We had a great run on the river. No great action shots but my hands were full.....

    here's rick (bluethunder) looking a little nervous above the rapid devils kitchen...

    here I am looking goofy floating by the picnic area...

    We did see some bikers up there but no one I recognized. It was a great day to be out doing anything.



    If anyone wants to try to be as cool as JAXO, Barry is selling his 1050 tiger ('07, white) to get a ktm 450 and a 230 or 250 dp for his wife so they can ride together.


    PM me and I'll get you Barry's contact info...I'll try to find a picture of the bike.


    Oh, found one..
    here's the front half of it...damn strom is in the way

    Nice! I wish I could have joined you two. I did get in a 100 mile ride...last night. A little bit chilly at 10:30PM.

    Just an FYI. I read Wolf Gap campground has no water so take plenty with you if you were going to use the facilities...

    Thanks bwalsh. We weren't heading all the way up to Wolf Gap and are most likely going to filter along a creek along the way. :1drink

    That actually works out well since I plan to camp there the following weekend. I bet the spring on the way up is still flowing though :clap
