    We planned a little wedding at our house. My parents just happened to be visiting from South Africa. Rollergirl is a California native, so most of her family agreed to come.

    That's funny you asked, I just checked some of the other pics, and I didn't have a trials tire on then.

    Took a few days off work. Loaded up the truck and trailered our little bikes to a secluded spot south of San Felipe. Thank you Dan and Nancy for the use of your house.

    Did I mention that this was our honeymoon?:flug

    "Yes, my love, I can see that the sand is thick and soft. Ride it, don't push it. Also, you have to ride faster."
    "What?"
    "Well, faster works better in the thick sand!"
    "Are you high? Faster will make me crash."
    " No baby, slower will make you crash."
    "Why did you bring me here?"

    [​IMG]



    Rollergirl can ride way better than her her confidence level. She is awesome and totally kicks ass. Going faster in the thick sand quickly heated us both up.
    "Look my love, shade!"

    When we got to this spot, I assured my wonderful wife that the likelyhood of an angry group of heavily armed men with big mustaches appearing from the nearby wash was probably fairly low.
    "What about those evil drug-growers?"
    Unfortunately for Rollergirl, I suffer from smart-ass-itis. "Well, there seems to be absolutely no water here. Even the Ocotillos are dead. I think we are probably not going to come across any pot-fields."

    [​IMG]



    She is a good listener!
    "Faster baby."

    [​IMG]



    "Oops, I seem to have lost the trail."

    [​IMG]



    "Ah ha, there it is!"

    Back to the house for some rest and fantastic beer.

    Looking back at these pictures reminds me how wonderful my wife is.
    She does ask why we never see anyone else's wives on the trails.
    My response is that we never see anybody on these trails, let alone other wives.

    Great Report Peter. You and Rollergirl are two of the coolest people I know and your love for each other is heartwarming but......

    I've got a somewhat different take on what goes on during rides "Near Ramona"

    If I may, I'll share my limited knowledge of what really goes on down there. I know some stuff. :deal

    Ramona Central, this is where it all starts. :evil
