    i couldn't make the weekend camping trip because of work, but i wanted to make a 'night ride' on friday with some FF's and finish with beers/margaritas at Newcombs.


    waited for tbarstow to meet up at the shell station at 6-6:30.
    waited til 7 with no tbarstow.

    it was hot(90's in La Canada) and i downed a 32 oz Gatorade in 5 minutes.

    at this junction, the group splitted into 2. sito, sospe, sopascat, bob and starchaser went straight back to big bear, while randy m, septic, tim, and i headed down to hw38 via clarke's grade, believing it's the shortest way to get back to OC via the most dirt

    randym and septic knew the route otherwise we would have gotten lost
