    Gonna be leftovers for Saturday....

    One thing we are sure of.... plenty to eat and drink at these things...

    First & foremost, GOLD medal goes to Tony " MadHouse of SPEED" for taking the lead, organizing & making a separate trip wknds before w/trailer & volunteer riders to explore & map each days route/loop.
    I also give Gold to Kevin "Forest" for riding his pumpkin up & back, totin what he needed to treat us to some great roughing it grub. This man/rider makes a mean omelet just when your facing a bowl of plain cheerios & milk. I'm not much of a breakfast eater but his willingness to whoop-up a hot treat at his time & expense is greatly appreciated. Not to mention the laughs is spreads around camp w/the funnies he carries in his cranium.
    Everyone who showed-up & rode deserves a "silver" for hardcore riding perseverance( joanzin ), GREAT group. Despite minor incidents, all of us came out lucky given what could happen.
    I was not there for Gary's stream crossing but remember looking back at Stuart thru the roadway cloud years back. He speed blasted his KLR beast straight up "on the pegs" thru water, many boulders, then parking it on dry land again in an island of trees w/o releasing death grip on bars to let it go down to either side., UN-REAL!!
    Thanks again to all that added to the mix, the good time and pics posted,

    Yea It was a Great time, and Tony is a Human GPS, I think Toura Tech has a mount for him but its Big $$$$ and hard to see past when mounted on the handle bars. It was good to see every one once more, and a BIG shout out to Theresa for the use of the Air pump.
    Next time i am going to make sure I take my riding pants liners, had some poly long johns but the mostly mesh pants, you know lets the wind in. I had all the heat packs in the package over parts of my body so was not cold at all except for the fingers. going to head to the Trout on sat for the day, cant stay Ive got to catch up on all the work I have not done around here.

    I have been dealing with a horrible tooth ache for weeks. I finally went in yesterday am and said he better start tracking it down because I couldn't stand it anymore! He found it and pulled it. Big fat Abscess tooth! So, I am currently laid up in bed taking heavy meds and antiobotics. I think I would have rather had my daughter naturally again then deal with this :(

    Later this week, I have an appointment with my massage therapists to work out my back issue from this past weekend.

    Therefore I don't think I will be riding this weekend, but maybe I can still come visit if that is ok?

    Oh madhouse STOP being so hard on yourself. If anything you are part of a wonderful moto community that help each other out when in need.

    We all do a sport that is possible dangerous and we all acknowledge it, accept it and are very willing to take it on :D Besides as I saw a couple of weekends ago, you could be standing under a deck watching friends have fun and the damn deck FALL on you!! You just NEVER know what life will bring you. BUT if you have friends and family around you to pick you up, wipe you off and carry you on your way.....NOW that is something :clap

    as the ole' saying... SHIT HAPPENS.

    I've learned that you really should lead a ride like you've never ridden the route before. When you know the route it's easier to haul ass & not notice. Not that you would ever travel at light speed Mr. Madskills.
    There is a few corners right after a hill that puts people in the ditch at Boykin. I know to slow down & always do, but they never notice & end up sliding into the ditch. If its 2 or more, they pile up. After the third time, I now stop before the hill & wait for everybody.
