    Thanks for a great ride guys... I enjoyed the hell out of it !

    Snow drifts and downed trees took some miles out of the day... but made for good training getting through it all. I never knew skiing on a dirt bike could be so fun.

    See ya again soon. :clap

    Perry, Peter, Jeff, and Mike thanks for the ride Saturday. I waited at the bottom of Just Outstanding on Sawmill for you guys. When I didn't hear anything for a long time I moto'd back to the truck and hauled ass home. I made it with 10 minutes to spare.

    See you guys next time.

    Nice work guys! SOS rocks! :clap:deal


    We were on the west side on port-u-geese and ran into a large mass of limbs and debris from a cedar tree that lost it's top. The five of us had it clear in about 10 minutes, only had to saw one limb off an oak that was downed by the falling cedar to get past it. We headed north until we got tired of busting through snow drifts. We were denied our goal by mother nature and turned around just before Tobias lookout road.:huh

    It was a great weekend of riding!:wingsit's ALWAYS fun riding with you hooligans.....

    Thanks guys,

    Perry

    Pics and RR coming......Hey Jungle, what's up with the cig hangin' I thought you quit?

    Yeah, west slope gets the most water from the passing storms, a couple more weeks of warm weather and it should be melted away.

    Sorry… Jungle / HappyTrailsInc we didn’t make it out for this weekend of riding / trail clearing
    Had to work Saturday so only had one day for adventure.
    Since my boys were eager to hit the track Sunday and I didn’t feel much like running circles.:norton
    They went with their friends to the track and I went on a solitude run…… nature/mind/burro
    I decided to take out the burro and go on a solo run. I took my burro to places she never thought she could go.
    She is a stubborn ASS ….. she fought me on some places to turn back but I used my spurs on her and she kept trekking.

    lots of running streams, its the season

    Have any of you Sequoia locals been up into the Puites this season? Curious if it's ridable yet.
    Any report would be great.

    Hey Louis,
    Last Friday the Grinch and Catfish rode across the Piutes from Keysville to Landers, should be ready to ride. The Stewards have been working on clearing the trails of downed trees too.
