    Is this still the Plan? I'm good with most of it. After Dinner we may add a few new trails that Razer showed us. They follow the same suggested route but add a little spice. 6:30 at the 7-11!:clap

    Plan A – I figured that this will give us the most dirt miles and allow us to warm up before the night ride.

    6:30 PM - Meet at 7-11 on Oro Vista and Foothill Blvd (Sunland Blvd)

    7 PM – Warm up run - Ride up on Big T to Lynx to Pacifico to AC to Newcomb, still daylight

    8 PM - Dinner at Newcomb's and wait until it gets dark.

    9 PM to Midnight<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Back on AC to <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placeType w:st="on">Mt.</st1:placeType> <st1:placeName w:st="on">Pacifico</st1:placeName></st1:place> and ride downhill, then stop for a break at the parking lot off AFH

    Take Mt. Gleason and ride downhill on 4N24 (we normally go uphill on this one)<o:p></o:p>

    <o:p></o:p>
    Cut across Sito’s trail w/ water crossing (this time it will be east to west), my off-road map shows it as 4N25, but Google has it as a continuation of 4N24<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Take a break by the power line steel structure and absorb some emf for the needed energy<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Go uphill on 4N32/BPL (we normally go downhill on this one)<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Stop for break at the junction 3N17 and BPL, 100 yards before the Ranger Station<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Head west on 3N17/SCD and take a break or 2 along the way<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Wait for everyone before we get to Little T at that wide open spot where we normally discover we have a flat tire (maybe 100 yards before you hit Little T)<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Ride down on Little T to Osborne off the 210 and head home.

    Stopped by Dunerat's house on the way home. He was getting ready to go. Told him I had to check if my airfilter came in...and if it did I would change it and meet everyone at Newcomb's. Saw Bruce on the way to Noel's on the way home.

    Filter was in :clap so I buzzed Bruce to tell him but got no answer so figured they hit the road already.

    Did a bit of wrenching and hit the road to find Newcomb's free of ADV types. Talked to a guy who was 2 up on a blue SV and he said he saw Dunerat and Lepermassiah so sat and kicked back and waited...and waited...swatted some bugs...and waited some more.

    About 9:00, figured plans had changed so started down slowly and passed DannyG coming up. He turned around and we chatted for a bit and headed down to Georgies for some pizza.

    Hope everyone is o.k. Noel was bragging about his 6 minute tire change earlier in the day...so figured even if someone got a flat it shouldn't take that long.

    What happened???? :ear :ear :ear

    I was out doing a paved ride with the SV tonight. Seeing a dozen or so DS bikes up at Newcombs isn't helping me delay a DS purchase. Thanks for the eye candy in the parking lot.

    Btw, I don't think the SV mentioned above by Oni is me. There were two of us there; me on a blue SV and another guy on a yellow SV; neither of us 2-up.

    I made it home ok. It was a great time even though we were running late on just about everything. Newcomb's at 10:00pm. Had to go with that liquid dinner :1drink

    Also had a horrible fish sandwich at Hooter's... Just wasn't meant for any of us to have dinner tonight I guess.
