    I took a couple of days getting home, so I just caught up on the feedback and pics.
    I had an absolutely great time, especially Pleasant Canyon and Goler Wash. The
    Manson cabin was one of the freakiest moments of my month. The storm on Sunday
    was also freaky. I got some photos, but I can't seem to figure out how to get them
    onto this post.

    Looking forward to the 2009 n00b ride!

    H8chains,

    that was rammer !

    [​IMG]

    I'm not sure what happened. I have to admit that he is a damn good rider.

    I also have to add that when I went through there, my vision wasn't that good. I could see where I needed to go but not what the terrain looked like. I came around the corner and saw a group of bikes. I didn't even see the steps until it was too late. I just goosed it and away I went. I suspect the same might have happened to rammer. only he tried to slow it down. Also I was trying to keep TrailTrick in my sight. Man can that guy ride!!!!!

    Robbie the Pogdoc and I didn't get in until Sunday, so we passed most of you FF's on the way out. I had made reservations at the motel at Stovepipe months ago for this weekend to celebrate Robbie's return from 3 months of experimental prostate cancer treatment in Indiana (looks like it worked).

    We couldn't do a whole lot of tough riding, but we did make it over Cerro Gordo and up South Pass on Saline Valley. There was still a little leftover snow around. The north side of South Pass got a little slimey.

    Here's a few pix:

    The place really cleared out on Monday. Who had the Green van with 2 bikes on a trailer going out 190 on Monday? We were on the red GS and blue V-Strom.
