    Thank you Sir.
    Let me know what you buy.
    Somewhere I jotted down an Advrider suggestion used by a very accomplished member who uses a relatively basic camera. I'll see if I can find the details again.

    Still the plan, stan?

    Re: Photography, I've got the whole kit and kaboodle just sitting around. Lights, stands, backdrops, props, cameras, lenses... put myself through undergrad as a photographer doing weddings and models, etc. Now I just photograph old dudes on bikes it seems... :lol3

    I will do my best to make it, FBM. I need to test out new fork mods. But only if you promise me you won't leave me tied to a tree 20 miles from the nearest paved road again... :cry

    Gimme, tdreyer and I hit 57 miles yesterday. My iPhone GPS program was not working properly so it was a bit difficult to Nav but we made it. A real GPS is in my future.

    FBM, thanks for taking the lead today. Had a great time riding with you and Skid. Trails were perfect, temperature was ideal and everyone returned unscathed. Good stuff.. :clap

    Ditto MM! FBM gave us the big tour today of west Brox. Not much dust, and didn't see anyone in the woods. FBMan looked like a superhero up there with his orange bandana/cape flappin' in the breeze!
    :pynd

    Good times and my forks are feeling much better. :rayof

    Well Madhouse finally got his wish... lots of riders and NO issues... plus one the the best days of the year to ride...

    We too got lost and had to regroup. Went North to Camden and then East and back down. Sorry I missed the tunnel AGAIN.

    I rode 327 miles yesterday! Actually wore me out. I didnt even make it to the end of superbowl!

    I will post some vids up later. There were several of you there I never got a chance to meet and greet.

    Eric, being one of them.... Thanks for the vid BTW.

    And of course a special thanks to our Madhouse for leading... and leading quickly...:rofl
