    Any of you Saturday Barlow Riders gonna camp the night? Some from the Salem group are, and me too. Then ride some Badger Lake Wilderness border roads the next day and make an adventure out of it.

    I'm packin' Fajitas, enough for about 5 or so! Marinating tonight.
    And I've got plenty of coffee for the morning for all. Stuff for lunch, I'm all set.

    It was a great ride. Good to meet and ride with the Salem area folks. Many split ways after Wamic, but BrandonR and I returned to hiway 35 via Barlow trail again. I then hit Still Creek road down to Welches and then home.
    Did 250 miles with 7 hours ride time. I need a better seat.:cry Yes, it was a little warm, but not quite HOT yet.
    Thanks for setting this up Apple Jam, hope you have a good campout and get your bike sorted before the Squatch. Asrvivor, hope you can escape a full day next time.

    Tony

    Luke, Loud Al and me could see some of the dust you guys were making on Barlow rd from the top of Triangle Butte out in Diamond Mill. Could see most of the rest of the known world too. The only other human that got close to our location was in an airplane.

    L Al donated a turnsignal to the D Mill gods of the earth, we all rode some awesome single-track & elk trails, up hill, mountain and down dale. Butterflies and flowers up high, dust and heat down low. 2 smoking thru the woods is still a huge piece of freedom!

    Best part is we all got to go home in air conditioned comfort while we were thinking of you poor SOB's cooking in line on hwy 26 thru Sandy.:rofl

    Great ride yesterday. Wish I could have ridden back up the trail, but had to be home for a wedding and then a 21st birthday party at Bushwhackers :freaky

    asvivor, I will be out of town next weekend, and this week will probably be busy getting ready to leave. Maybe the following weekend we can get together and check it out. I don't know the area really good, but I have found at least one great power line road where there is a small pond similar to little crater lake, and an awesome very long hill climb with a nice twisty paved road back to the bottom. I would like to get over to the riding area over in Hood River too.

    Lot more logs in this one, but very clear water. Looks more impressive in person.:eek1

    You don't even know how other riders' day really went,
    but you KNOW yours was BETTER.

    It can't really get any better than that!
