    I can't wait to ride, but I just got back from Fire Camp and need to get back to my real job. Nuts. The dirt roads are calling, too! Well, I will have to live the ride through your posts for awhile. Thanks for the invite and have a great time.
    Also, I found something that can make you way dirtier than trail riding. Driving heavy equipment on a fire. I'll try to post some pics, later! Moondust 4-6" thick. Amazing powder.

    My dang leg is still broke but I'm headed for the Alvord tomorrow. We'll be camped with a bunch of rigs on the east side of the playa directly across from the hot springs with wind sailers, tons of food and booze - I dare ya to stop by and say hello man!

    It was a fun road to get to this point. Up a canyon two track with twists, turns, ups and downs, sliding around turns, ducking branches, twisting the grip, grabbing the brakes, etc. :ricky

    And then Steve decided we needed a break. :dood

    Special Ed is like: "No fooling, you were doing a fifth gear wheelie and set it down right on a rock? Bummer dude."

    I forgot to add that this ride took place 9-26-12 to 9-29-12. On with day two. Let's start out with some critters. Four legged.

    [​IMG]

    No legs. He (or probably she :lol3) got all pissy when I stopped and said hi. I think Special Ed has some pictures of it striking at my boot.

    Just north a couple miles is another way over these mountains. Might be tough on a KLR or bigger bike but we've ridden it west-to-east 3 times now. Not on the maps or GPS but follows an unlikely drainage to the summit of the north end of the range then along the summit ridge south before dropping down on the eastern slope and eventually to the PX route.

    Nice shots! :freaky
