    chris sorry to see you followed the wrong group. typically, if you want to continue riding with us after lunch, don't follow the riders with their tails in between their legs....:rofl



    ben, several of us going to wmrs...still a great weather for riding local. maybe someone can post up one....:lurk

    I'm envious of Jim as well.

    Self-employment is a double edged sword.

    Go Jim!:freaky

    after lunch, 4 of us fueled up and rode to sawmill. the elevation there is about 6K, so the air temp was a little more pleasant than rowher and tule.

    the trail was rough, lots of rocks, ruts, and deep dirt powder (worse than sand).

    now being a smaller group, we were moving most of the time. only chance to take pic was when we had our 1 and only break.

    on the way back, instead of taking the pavement via vazquez, we decided to do one more dirt section.

    rode up from the back side of rowher

    Now that is a complete ride report! Great job, Joel. :clap
    I saw you doing those blind over the shoulder shots while riding and I see you got some really good results. I'd like to get some tips on how to carry and handle the camera while moving.

    hey dennis and chris...pleasure riding with you guys.

    the videos coming later, after i buy the software and upgraded my smugmug account.

    this coming week, will have to spend my time getting ready for WMRS.



    la/oc boys who want to hook up in mammoth, you may want to post up here what's your plan.

    i'm not sure if i can take friday off...my boss hasn't approved my request.

    for sho, i will ride saturday...where ???? but prefer to ride the higher elevations towards june lake.

    sunday is a definite wmrs via silver canyon and down on wyman creek. did both of them last year and it was awesome. then, turn around and do the reverse, back to my truck that will be parked at laws (bishop)
