    By this time tomorrow morning, we will hit the dirt for 10 - 12 days of Honda-powered desert and mountain cruising. Last trip down there we passed by many intriguing tracks traversing the mountain ranges and dancing along treeless ridges. This time we have no agenda and intend to thoroughly scour these remote trails and forgotten roads. 4 of us will attempt to cover 300 miles and meet up with some other fellows just across the Nevada border by sunset monday. From there Jim and I are splitting from group and continuing south east for the Ruby mountains.

    I have no GPS, speedo or computer but I do have this Droid phone and new service to send a daily photo. Never tried to create a 'live' ride report so this may or may not work very well. My partner for the entire trip has all kinds of electronics and we both have nice cameras so we'll do our best to gather images for a proper report upon completion of the trip.

    Looking forward to meeting up with our friends that live in Eureka, Nevada for Chinese food and some brews on or about thursday 6/25/10. :wink:

    Okay, the Colossus of Technology has checked in from Denio Jct. Yesterday they did 302 miles. Wox, Jim and Tim (who I didn't know was with them and lost 4 rear spokes on his KTM) camped at the Bog Hot Springs with N2moto and Tinpounder. They are now headed east to the Hinkey Pass area where they will camp for the night. Here's a couple of pics for ya'all...

    Well they made it past McDermitt, NV today and up into the mountains SE, as you can see from the pic:

    Not sure how many miles today, texted Wox but got no reply. Think they're headed towards the Ruby's or maybe south to Eureka first, not sure. Damn I wish I was out there. :doh

    More when I get it!

    I know. But I also know that Wox is taking the G11 out at every opportunity and definitely getting some quality shots for us to post when they return. I'm thinking we'll see some more Droid shots when they have cell coverage...

    North of the route I took last year. I hit 95 slightly north of Orvada, then west from there coming out on 140 about 15 miles south of Denio Junction. I wish I was out there.:deal
