    From left to right, Devon, Josh, Nylon2000, Sophia, and Belstaff all lined up over by the 4-Wheel display area.

    I'll try and get more pics up after tomorrow. Nice meeting some of the inmates both at the fire station and at the Expo!

    Thanks for the map Jon! I stopped in Friday afternoon and they said I just missed you. Great event this year!

    I'm back in CA now after a few hundred miles of headwinds. Already looking forward to next year, hopefully the same venue. :thumb

    Hey Capt! Met 3 of your Firefighters Friday nite (2 guys and a gal bad with names) after riding Shenebly Hill (great ride thanks!) They took great care of us with maps and directions! Rode the 300 to Woods Canyon on to pinetop and stayed Saturday at my cabin. Sunday Saltriver Canyon on home to Tucson... 750 miles in 3 days... Great Time!

    Went last year. Couldn't make it this year. Planning for next year. It was a good time. Just amazing amounts of diverse kit.

    I missed the Chief on Thursday afternoon by about 10 mins and snagged a map from his firefighters. Caught up with him and a couple Friday afternoon near the entrance and chatted a bit (failed to identify myself as to which inmate was me! :huh)
    I was in the RawHyde class shown in the pic above but I must've been hiding. Was great seeing all the ADV bikes and riders there. What an awesome sight to be heading out on the road and turn around to see a dozen or so other GS headlights following!
    Spotted Nylon's camp but didn't get to meet up.
    Fun time and I look forward to next year!

    Thanks for welcoming us, Chief! Great riding last weekend thanks to the map. So many trails, so little time.

    Great riding with you, Dawn and Art.

    And here's one of me with a little less dirt on my face (I managed to ride in front this time:evil), with my friend Dan, middle, and Dave from Nelson BC.

    I didn't meet 1 inmate. :huh but I had a good time. I was too busy doing the RawHyde training. I knew name tags would have been a good idear. Or maybe I should have gotten an Adv Rider sticker. :D
