    I also heard the roll chart had some issues but we doing GPS and confirming w/ the roll chart so we never got lost or anything. I loved riding through the forrest. Having to go under trees and around logs, through rivers was bitchin' (I have only ridden in the desert prior to this).

    I was great scenery too. The dust kinda killed it for me. At least in the desert it has somewhere to go. In the trees it just sits there. I could not se where I was going about 2/3 of the time. Suprise ruts and branches are no fun.

    We meet some good people and had a great time. One note to anyone who may want to stay at Sierria Sky Ranch: They DO NOT have air conditioning (it was 111 all weekend), their food was terrible IMO, our room did not lock, and the owners were great FWIW. The owners let us come back to the hotel after the ride on Sunday to shower up andget al cleaned up before driving back home.
