    Had an awesome time! Thanks M1Jeep for organizing,:clap thanks to everyone who tried to kill me on Thursday's ride: I never felt so physically depleted in my life, and was ready to call it quits for this type of riding...
    But younger heads prevailed...

    Did someone pick up my chair from near where 3DChief was camping? I left it there when I went riding with Joel. It is a personalized Kermit chair. See the photo below.

    Yes, we were wondering who left that there...thought it was Tim from Petaluma. Dennis (Tuff Enuff) has it. PM him for details.

    I saw it there when I left. You never came back and got it, or it was gone when you came back? That was somewhere around 10 am :dunno


    FOUND. That's good!

    Water crossing vids.

    I didn't take a lot of pics this time. Well I did, but that was for the Eastside Motobabes event this evening in LA. I'll post those pics later. Priorities!

    Ersin is up first crossing with his UFO/KTM. Making it look easy. Oh wait, it was easy.

    Not sure who was up next, but M1Jeep goes down in the long water crossing and needs some help out.

    Next is another unknown (sorry) but gets passed by The Rider.

    Next up is Mike (forgot your adv name) keeping his boots dry.

    And last but not least we have Rob G.

    enjoy...

    Home! Left at 12:30, got in about 7:15PM. Took a beautiful scenic slow pace through Johnsondale, out Mountain route 50 to 190 and out to Springville then 99. Great time. Good seeing everyone again. Thanks Rich for hosting this event and Dave for driving us out to Grumpy Bear's. Long ride but worth it. Mrs. Ramjet whipped up some much needed fuel:
