    hello again - glad you could make it out! I'll be back next spring for sure (aiming for less "ass-over-teakettle).

    and my "in-house mechanic" (aka BDXMPL) has a much better theory about the reffing issue than I do: bad clutch plates or throw-out-bearing. Makes more sense than what I came up with...

    Looks like most of you had a great day. Makes me wish I lived up that way.

    should I? It is soooo tempting..... :norton

    [​IMG]

    at this point I was already on reserve... no problem, after all, there is one gas-station in the area:

    uhhoo, somebody stopped selling gas apparently... :eek1

    [​IMG]

    so, the way home is about 30 min from there, tiny backroads and no gas-station. The closest gas is in going out of the way... guess I'll be home by dark :lol3

    Turns out, I prolly would have made it.... 30 miles on reserve and .2 gallons to spare :D

    [​IMG]

    all in all, 250 great miles of backroads and gravel (more like snoddy/slick stuff). Yup, good day!

    It's a wonder we didn't pass each other at some point yesterday, a lot of our tracks were overlapped.

    I went down to open the gate when you honked.

    Then I stood around for half an hour wondering where the hell she went? :lol3

    :lol3 knowing that makes that side trip down your road totally worth it. The place looked like no one was home or I would have stopped in.

    I know, private property... even hiking that bridge could get you in trouble.

    And only a few pics are with the new camera - I still use the old one for drive by shootings and quick shots.
