    thinking about an adventure ride from the OC to reedley this weekend. ride up towards kernville on thursday and basically try to ride mountain roads as far north as reedley by friday. grab a campsite somewhere up from kernville thursday late afternoon.im sure its mostly gonna be a pavement ride but im going to go camp and party at the kings river so this is kinda more of a road trip anyway instead of a trip to ride trip. how would you go from the area? ill have a load and ill be solo on my dr 650 with the stock highway gears.

    Hi Sean, I can put together a killer route for you from Kernville to Reedly, lots of dirt if you want. I'll send you a PM.

    I'd love whatever intel folks have for up there, I haven't explored the SQF enough.

    There is a nice spot by Salmon Creek at the end of a short dirt road (part of the network for the SCE flume system), I also know of a neat spot by Parker Meadow Creek that's slightly off the beaten path.

    Most off travel is with the family in my Jeeps, they don't let me get away solo too often :(

    I unexpectedly have vacation time from July 21-29, and my significant other:crash has given me a hall pass.

    I'd like to take a trip in the Sequoias, but I'd rather not go solo. Anybody up for a 3-5 day trip up there? I'm fairly flexible. It could be a fully self contained trip on the bikes, or I'm open to trucking up there, set up a base camp, and take day trips from there.

    I'd be on the Husky in the sig, skill level-cautious intermediate.

    Anybody game?

    Up in the Puites last week. Fun as always. Many of the trees that were down across the trails a couple weeks ago have been cleared.
