S1Marks and Blz-Bob met up at Colemans for a nice winter ride on Sunday. Although it was misty at times, about half the time it was dry. Not bad. Mark led up into the clouds past Kening Campground and we ended up over near the Nehalem river. On thing I'm realizing that's extra nice on cold winter dual-sport days, is a nice warm lunch. So we hit the Big Wave Care in Nehalem. Where Mark ordered one of the biggest burgers I've ever seen! We busted up some more roads along a different fork on the Nehalem and managed to time it just right to make it home before dark (barely). Another nice adventure in the dark woods. I'm sure there is a view in there somewhere Mark, survey'ng his kingdom Blz-Bob fighting the for eyesight. Did great considering the mist was messin with his vision half the day. I really need to stop at more places other than clear cuts, but the climbs up to them are so much fun! Gonna check out the Bike show next weekend, then I have a 10 days off over Christmas and no significant plans...so might as well ride a few days. Hope to see some of you guys over the holidays. PS - Missed LoudAl, our unofficial official PDX-Offroad Photographer! Hope that last ride didn't have any "lasting effects"!
