    As you can see, the pleasant ride home blew/vibrated the vast majority of the mud off my bike. I'm trying to decide if I should even wash her now.

    Too bad the video is so choppy. The GPS feature is great. Nice job on the video.

    I took a few pics yesterday after turning the GPS feature on on my camera. I figured how to get that to work now and it will be an easy way to map out the dirt roads on a ride by taking a pic of them as I fly by. That way, I will have a picture/GPS log of the dirt roads that I have ridden on or passed by during a ride. This method should simplify road selection when laying out a proposed route on the GPS the night before a ride and keep a custom map of found dirt roads.

    Videos are great Barry. Never know when those crazy deer are going to come out of no where! I wish the video showed how deep those ruts were we were straddling. I'll have my camera and extra battery next time. 308 would have made some good video. Especially the hill climb at the power line!

    WOW ! Cool to see so many doods got out and rode this weekend :clap

    That video with the gps tracking was pretty dang cool too.


    Me and BLT decided to head for the hills and go dirt riding up on the plateau. Not too many pics but, caught a little action. Started out with a little frozen mud, got slick as it started to thaw butt by lunch it was fast and hookin' good. Rode till dark . . .I figured 8 hours on the bikes :evil

    Getting ready to take off....only 5 riders in out group:

    Ken then BLT --- to his credit he was on his son's 250. Killer little bike but sometimes didn't have enough grunt to recover:

    :nod . . . . . . . . I'm already thinking about it too :evil

    That riding was based out of Livingston. Advanced woods. Not the kind of place you take a clean, straight bike. If you took your DRZ there, well......... I'm not sure it would look the same when it got back home :yikes

    HA - yea I guess the first plan is to watch the weather and cross our fingers. We really need it to NOT get below freezing the night before. The mud will freeze and as it begins to thaw, it creates a thin layer of melted mud on top of frozen mud and will be super slick for an hour or so. It's totally doable, i just hope it's half way dry and not frozen.....will be fast :)

    Anyways...... Hey TK - Probably just do a day ride? Kickstands up in Coalmont around 9:30 or so? Lets watch the weather tho before we make any firm plans.

    Oh yea they got stuck all the time. You had to cross a stream just as you got on the beach. It was a creek that dumped into the ocean and you shouldn't try to cross at high tide. If you got stuck there was two guys that made their living off of people that got stuck. 200 to 300 to pull you out. I had a 67 El Camino that did great as long as you aired down to 10psi. Ask Dillon what happens when you cross at high tide in a Nissan Pathfinder.

    Water went over the hood and up to the side windows :uhoh

    Ok this one is better:evil And you have to cross to get to the dunes.
    Like I said low tide is best. Not as the tide is coming in. Every good surfer has a tide book in his car.
