    Dec 27th and 28th, camping at Meads Lake.

    Basically a noobie ride, and as always advance riders are welcome.

    No planned ride yet, but the idea is to do some dirt ride training and explore the area including vicinity. You can ride, truck, trailer it, there's plenty of wide open space. Bring your motorhome or camper if you want.

    See below for the location.

    :lol3 Bob, the helicopter tour is optional!

    Fellow noobs before these guys make us shit in our pants, the plan is limit all rides to easy and mild. We can do some training rides but that's up to the individual. The rest of the ride will be exploring and sight seeing. I've never been to Joshua Tree NP, and that's one place we gotta see.

    Need to have plated bikes, otherwise you will be confined in a sand box!

    Thursday most likely be doing a training ride per deduro's training video, and more training, around the campsite.

    Friday, some FF indicated they will show up. We will cover a lot of miles if the group decides to venture out.

    I may come out for the day if you can tell me were you will be camping. That's a big place and I could spend all day looking for you.
