    I shoulda kept filming because he got out to the junction and hung a right and REALLY goosed it for about 30 solid seconds. Left a trench that I'm sure is still there...:thumb

    This is an inspiring trip for me for sure! :clap
    How are you planning this stuff out? Do you use USGS maps or are you downloading stuff to a GPS (Black Arts I tell ya!)?
    Since I've moved to San Jose I'm going to have to hit some of the fire trails around here before I go on some crazy trek like this!
    THanks FOr sharing!

    Good luck finding anywhere to ride in the bay area. You're going to drive a ways to find good dirt.
