    It was a pleasure to meet some of you all. What a great spot. Next year I'll bring some camping gear, beverages and a bike with knobby tires. Cheers, Brynn ( the fella on the green Versys )

    Well, you all were there. So not much explanation needed. Just a few of my 100 or so pictures. Man, what a weekend!

    Sunday's ride home through Cherry Creek Ranch was another highlight.

    Mark and I sat at this spot and drank a still cold beer while contemplating the meaning of life. Mostly, why the fuck are we wasting our lives away in an office every day.

    Hate you Zack.:fyyff
    thought there were some good pics before, now you go and blow the whole thing out of proportion by showing me that my 14 year old tiger wouldn't be out of place on that ride you and Mark did.

    It was good meeting those of you who were around Friday morning. I'm glad I took the day off and went riding. I enjoyed pushing the Wee to new levels for me. Thanks ORAdvSgt, S1Mark and OrEXPat for a great day in the saddle. Here's my pics:

    ORExPat wisely decided to take the slab back to camp while the rest of us chose to ride to Ashwood in the lengthening shadows. We didn't stop much as we were pushing daylight. What a hoot to really see how the Wee handled things at a fast pace.

    Great route and good times.

    Angela and I had a great time hanging out with all of you PNW hooligans at the Crooked River. It was nice to meet a bunch of new people and run into friends I haven't seen for a long time. :freaky
    Thanks to everyone who helped in organizing this weekend. It was a lot of fun! We're looking forward to the Spring Break on the Crooked River in 2014. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for us again.
    Next up Hells Canyon, hope to see you there! :deal

    Steady Squishy, that'd be $50 more than he paid for it and $100 more than it's worth! :lol3

    I had only my cell phone for pics, so didn't take many.

    Good stuff folks! We had full on Ebola in the house from Thursday - Saturday so no Crooked River escapades for me :cry. Did sneak out for a desert run Sunday afternoon though and thought we might see some ADVers but no luck.

    Squish-ster, did you lose some weight? About 10 lbs of hair anyway??

    I wish!! Actually i did diet, lost some weight...then celebrated my success, & put it back on. :lol3

    You didn't know me when i had the full shaven look with a grandad goatee, tried to grow the hair again, it's just easier shaving it for now.

    We were wondering if you'd turn up over the wkd, sounded safer to stay near the loo for you!

    Would love to be there. I was going to ride & camp, but the bike is down for a bit. Considered just going for the Sunday race. Maybe.

    Good luck to you.
