    Made it home, turning around to go get the bike... Thanks, Joel, for going back and for taking the stuff with you. I'll be in touch about picking it up this week.

    I’m home. J Tree was full where I wanted to camp. Should have gone thru DV and camped at my favorite spot over by Lone Pine.

    Home in time for a walk along the beach with my wife, after a quick shower.

    Thanks Joel. If you're stuck with shirts and cups we all that attended should buy them up as stocking stuffers.

    Back home and settled in, taking a little time to reflect on another great rally.
    Thanks to Joel for all his effort in putting this together. It can't be easy herding cats.
    I met so many new friends as always. Looking forward to DV.

    Caught the southbound Lost Wages traffic, but finally made it home.

    Good to see many peeps are safely home and expressing good times.

    No need to create a separate RR, let's just pour all the good stuff here.

    Thanks.

    I couldn't stay as long as I planned but had a great time anyway. Joel, you're a saint for putting on such a good show and putting up with all of us. Thanks for the tent and everything else. What a great group.

    Clyde was traveling too fast on his 950 for me to frame the last picture correctly!

    Me and Mark (Zapatero) back in Phoenix safely.

    No clue why text is black. And many pictures not showing up. EDIT: (went white when I hit post)

    Just have my phone with me and have very few pictures this year from the little riding I was able to do. Might look at uploading those later when I have access to a computer.

    Joel - Thanks again for everything. Also for passing the used gear sales $ onto the stewards. They will put it to good use!

    March feels like long ways away :-)

    Joel, Rick told me you have some Tshirts left. I didn't order any due to needing an odd size but Mo said that she would like to have a couple. Is there any XL short and long sleeve T's available? If so, let me know and I will get some if you don't mind sending them via mail.
    This was my first time at one of your rallies and I was very impressed. I am not good with large groups but I was very comfortable with everyone. I have to equate that with the possitive energy that you put forth throughout the event. GOOD JOB!

    Not your fault. Besides, I shouldn't have been in 2nd place! It's been fun telling all kinds of different stories.

    We had such a bitchen time (I was going to write "Great" but that word hardly sums it up sufficiently) that I forgot about it.. after a half dozen ibuprofens. I'm putting my videos all together but unfortunately the camera was off for that "mundane gravel road ride". doh!

    Major BIG thanks to Joel, Bonnie, all the ride leaders, all the volunteer servers, and all the sponsors of the event. We didn't win anything, but came home winners!
