    Thought I'd throw it out there, if anyone lost a small desert tan, mini-saddlebag type firstaid kit on Ten Mile Road today, above Hume Lake, the Forest Service has it. I was tempted to just keep it, as it looked so good on the bike, but I figured I'd do the right thing. I wouldn't want Kyle to be disappointed in us...

    The death march ride yesterday was awesome, nobody died but we thought we might. Knarly trails we can't talk about. We found some nice wet dirt up near Sherman pass. Just four riders, theGrinch, EXCNDez, Dzrtracin and me. Good times.

    Just got back from an awesome 4 days of riding out of Camp Nelson (above Springville). Finally met the famous Perry and got a small taste of one of his easy tracks. 3 of us pushed it much harder the next day and I put one of Perry's tips to use ... THANKS

    Had a little eye opener this morning when we pulled off to take a pictue of an interesting stump.

    Turns out we were blocking his sun tanning session.

    Looking forward to more trips up to the Sequoias

    Some carne asada and Jungle crazy chile, He also brought a huge melon size avocado I wish I would have gotten a pic of it. Burmshot thanks for the grill, we kept on eye of for ya but didn’t see ya.

    [​IMG]
    Some of the left over carne we had it as beef jerky the next day. Hey Perry if you, Grinchy,EXCndez, and Dzrtracin would have been closer you could have stop by for dinner! Hey Dztracin sorry to hear about your gps but maybe it was a good thing cuz your backlight didn’t work anyways! Time to pick up a new one... lol

    A little trail maintenance. Some of this logs where heavy. This one we slid down with gravity.
