    hey rich (M1jeep)....fantastic job and thanks for putting km4. this just keeps on getting better.....:clap

    browneye, we're thankful to you for printing the maps and made them available. the t-shirts are great. love them. those who bought the shirts, you are helping a good cause...blue ribbon coalition and advwebsite.

    rich asked me to sell the rest of the shirts, over a dozen left...mostly xl and xxl. folks, if you had a great time this weekend, and haven't gotten a shirt, please show your appreciation and return the favor by getting a shirt so we can make a substantial donation to the 2 recipients. $10 each + $3 shipping. send me a pm.

    yeah, i'm home and ready for bed.ey

    Yeah, I was eating breakfast with Cheryl & Tim and I got up to get something from my bag. Then, Joel came up and said 5 minutes to the ride. I had not even started getting ready. In my rush to get ready to ride, I did not move my chair back over by joel's truck. It was gone by the time I got beck from the ride.

    Lior, thanks for your help with my pannier latch, air, etc.. It's great to have someone there who really knows what they're doing. You and your crew show some great hospitality too.

    Awesome time! Big kudos to Rich for putting it together. I had an absolute blast, dinner at Grumpy Bear was awesome, even with the waitress going apeshit, and nice comeback on the game of horseshoes. :freaky

    Saturday we broke off to explore, and headed left on Albanita from the Blackrock station

    through some rocks

    No worries, Rob. Seemed like at least two thirds of us either fell, got stuck, or stalled in that particular crossing. That's what we're all there for; to help eachother out.

    Big thanks to you for hauling all that firewood up.
