    Wait till you see the pics of John's nose.....:cry :huh :freaky


    The cool part...we never gave up....must have taken us 5 hours to cross Sawmill and ALL THE SNOW...LOTS....AND LOTS OF SNOW......but we made it out the other side...no small feat in January...

    What's that myth about a person cursed to know what evil lies ahead but no one believes him? (or her) Cassandra? :grim Well at least you guys made it! I actually found a new (to me) way home, hit the dirt near where San Franciscito meets Eliz. Lake, but took the East side ( Forest Road 4) and went all the way over the mountain to Bouquet Canyon about 2 miles past where we usually turn onto Spunky. Great views of the reservoir from up there. See Joel, I'm still a snow magnet!:D

    Well unlike Bouncing Billy(Grumpy), I had a blast! Yes the snow was very challenging, but we all made it thru. Billy was ready to give up.

    We had a noobie with us, my brother Z06, and he did great. All though he is very sore today. Will take him a couple of days to recoup.

    Here are some pics from my Iphone.

    Nowwhat's bike checking the water content of the soil...
