    Made it home safe. Joel thank you for such an excellent weekend and putting on the event. The weather was perfect and the company even better. The Saturday dinner was outstanding last year but this years was even better. I'm already looking forward to Noobs.

    Made it home with great memories of 4 great days of riding! 2 days with Jimmy and 2 more with you guys. Enjoyed meeting the guys I met - wish I had had time to spend with more but maybe you’re lucky I didn’t! There will be more rallies! Special thanks to our little tent enclave buds - Josue, Mark, Ewan (sp?) Brian, and Greg (apologies for my snoring. I forgot my mouth guard). Fun spending time with you guys. Thanks to Robbie for leading a great ride on Friday and to David for giving us a route for Saturday that I effed up, and to Greg for being such a good sport about it (even though you knocked off my tail light lol)!

    Many Thanks Joel for all that you do and to the volunteers who help him out... especially whoever made the coffee in the morning!

    See you at nOObs!

    PS - Absolutely an awesome dinner Joel... bring ‘em back next year!!

    I’m glad that you and @Davethestick and @Scythr3s got to experience what I thought to be a fun and relaxing ride and to take in some of the scenery that we had available. Nothing is more meaningful than friends that ride at a comfortable pace have fun and lots of laughs along the way.
    Then we can drink beer relax by the fire and reminisce on the days ride and laugh some more.

    @NSFW Thank you for all your hard work putting this rally together and making everyone feel so welcome, also for working towards a great cause to keep our trails open.
    @dunerat and ms. dunerat Thank you for your hospitality and being part of this great event, it’s friends like you that make people realize how great advrider is at meeting like minded people and sharing your knowledge and having lots of laughs.
    To all of you at the rally I’m glad I got to meet you and for the ones I didn’t get a chance to meet I will hopefully get too at the next one.

    Our ride up to Pioneer Saloon was uneventful so Joel in true Adventure Rider spirit, decided to add some excitement to finish off the ride and ignite his battery for us.



    Awesome Joel, as usual!

    Fortunately, Sergei had tools handy to deal with the meltdown and another rider's charging pack saved the day and a lot of time.

    I want to thank Mike, Dave, and George, for my first ride with this group. Everyone here is welcome in Pahrump. Jimmy Lewis, our own talent, completely unknown by Pahrumpians, put on a great demonstration. I was already practicing balanced turns today.

    I'd like to once again like to thank @NSFW for getting us all together.

    [​IMG]

    I had a great time seeing old friend and making new ones :thumb

    (Disclaimer) I'm really bad about taking pictures.

    Friday I again led "The Easy DV Loop", this is a good ride for big bike riders to get out for 200 mile loop with a chance to test their dirt riding with options to bypass the dirt and meet the group on the other side.


    Left Pahrump with @thecoldman & @bsham heading to Bad Water Rd.


    First stop Ashford Mills.

    [​IMG]

    We then jumped on the West Side RD. with a stop at Bennett's long Camp.

    Next Stop Artist Pallet

    [​IMG]



    A quick stop @ Furnace Creek for food and gas. (no pics)


    ************************************************
    Then thru 20 Mule Team Canyon (pic stolen from internet)

    [​IMG]
    ************************************************
    Next stop Dante's View.

    [​IMG]



    We skipped Ash Meadows Rd. on the way back this year to make up a little time so as not to roll in late for the nights socializing.



    Back in time for cocktails and Jimmy Lewis.:freaky


    Yes I asked to ride his bike, no i was not serious. :D

    [​IMG]

    @byh and I hadn't eaten yet and ended up at sonic for a quick bite. @Outjustout joins us even thought he had already eaten he got chili cheese so glad i'm not sharing a room with him :krusty

    [​IMG]

    Now its Time for drinks and socializing :beer
    [​IMG]

    Saturday riding with @drmiller100 ,@byh , @GO_OUTSIDE! & @Outjustout.

    J.King and I arrived home with our beloved U-HAUL rental last night around 8.30pm.
    Tired as hell and very disappointed that i was not able to ride.

    BUT i had a great time socializing and watching the campground while everybody was out riding ;-)

    See you all at the N00bs!
