    Into the darkness - the efforts to get each bike up were nothing less than awesome. We were all tired and hungry. Everyone helped each other.

    I have been meaning to come on here and post, now the aches and pains have faded!

    What a great weekend. Perfect mix of challenging terrain, endurance, scenery, camping and good company. Had a blast attempting to jump a fully loaded DR with stock suspension through those tracks! Not so sure about the night riding until I get some of those big lights..

    I have no photos to contribute but would like to say a big thanks to Tomack and rmhrc628 for leading the way and I have to take my hat off to Jdeks and speed racer for toughing it out all the way to the end - respect!

    Until next time.
