    I am still painting. Buy a house they said. Quit wasting money on rent they said. Pay for it and fix it too, that is what I am doing. Rent is not so bad.

    Another couple of days of epic riding following Jeff around his backyard.
    All the usual stuff you expect from an apple vally rally. Great people, great riding and decent weather. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    A group of five of us headed out Saturday morning, hoping to eventually meet up with y'all...

    Unfortunately I was channeling my inner @Apple Jam and got a rear flat 5 miles from the house! Ride buddies bike home, get the truck and ramp, take bike home and change tube at home with proper tube... Departure now delayed 2+hrs...

    Met rest of party in OC, take Abbot to top, on to Frog Lake for gas and a corn dog. Met group of Sang Froid riders, they have a flat... Borrow our pump...I sense a pattern...thankfully not to be repeated!

    Finally, on to Barlow, then hit the North CDR section... Not going to make it to Billy Bob, so scored a nice campsite at Badger Lake just before dark.

    Finished Sunday with a stop at Skamania for the Motorcycle Cannonball...all in all an epic Moto weekend!

    Man, looks like I missed out.

    I did squeeze in a ride yesterday afternoon and came across a bunch of bikes at Skamania. Now I know why.

    Glad YFF had a good time. Next time... next time!

    I didn't really grab any pictures. But, I had a great time, even though I was that guy, who was in way over my head chasing you FF's on your dirt bikes.

    I had a great time, met some really cool people, rode in the dirt, took a swim in the creek with the DR, and broke the rack mount on the rear of the bike.
    Thank you to everyone who helped fish my bike out of the creek. The bike is all repaired and ready to go.

    a friend asked,"So what do you do at night when it's too dark to ride?"
