    Will do :-) This is out in Warner Valley....literally a 2 minute ride from my house. Lots of areas to explore and enjoy.

    I did some street riding with RRR last week. He is doing well, just very busy. I bet if you come down, we could wrangle him to join a ride...

    Sounds good to me. Spring break I usually spend in Death Valley as my "beautiful sensitive life partner" I get points for talkin like that, hahaha , works for the school district. Not quite sure how to work this out yet unless she finds the better job she has been looking for and then she would not be able to go. So I could go to Death Valley and then head your way after a couple of weeks or so there.
    We have spent a lot of time in Utah and New Mexico over the past 5 years but it has been on my Goldwing pulling a quick camp trailer. She does ride her own Honda cx500 custom and a small dirt bike. Either a ct90 or my second dirt bike a tw200. My dirt scoot is a Yamaha xt250. But I kinda like the tw better. hehehe

    Ok. Here is something I have not seen mentioned in this thread. There is a web site out there called home town locator. It's pretty cool. So here goes. I will provide a link shortly. This works for any state, "I think" so far I have used it for Wa. , Or. , Ca. , and Utah. Just change the name of the state that comes first in the link.

    Utah.hometownlocator.com

    Now when it opens up click on counties, then lets just choose Washington. Then your going to get a page with a bunch of demographic stuff. But then click on features, Now chose a feature you want to check out. Ok, lets look under "cultural" ohboy, ohboy, this is fun... hehe now just for the heck of it choose "mines" it says there are ten mines in Washington county. click on mines. It now lists all 10 mines so just for the heck of it click on the first one which is, Apex Mine, and it opens a page with more info. Look over the page and notice it gives you the coordinates , so now you can key that into your gps and do a goto the Apex mine. "But don't fall into the mine shaft" hahahaha:(
    Scroll down and you will find a map of the mines location. also on that page there is a GNIS ID number for you to click on and that will open up another page with more info on the Apex mine. So this should get you exploring a lot of things.
    There is a lot more to the check out with this home town locator so click away and have fun.

    It was a rainy weekend last weekend so my Beautiful sensitive life partner and I went looking for abandoned school houses in Wasco county, Oregon. We went in my 4x4. and took a bunch of pics. Got into some back country that made me think I was in the Deliverence Movie. :yikes I actually loaded my 45 acp...eeek :eekers

    Have fun, Cyclepath :loco

    Sounds like it's worth checking out. Thanks. I sometimes just look around the outskirts of town on Google earth and then go check out the roads. It also gives you a good idea of what the scenery will look like.
    By the wsy: Anyone know the back roads to Mesquite or Vegas? I've always been curious about making these trips.

    Still on a bit of a "vacation" from steady posting on ADVRider. But will return sooner or later. :-)

    Riding all the same bikes in all same places. :clap

    Keep the rubber side down everyone. Thanks, RRR.
