    WOW! what a great time! It was truly a pleasure meeting you all, thanks for making me feel welcome. Trey650, thanks for putting it all together.

    TwoWheelsGood Thanks for guiding us through an awesome day, not sure what was more challenging, navigating the rutted out down-hills or choking back the spicy tuna roll! :huh

    Can't wait to do it again!

    Hey Taylor,

    Put those awesome pics up in the ride report shleppy started:deal


    Except the one of my laying on the ground, that is :wink:


    I got quite a few of my bike laying on the ground today as well... and TWG on the ground a couple times. My pics are uploading now, but it might be a couple days before I have time to put together a "ride report" posting. I'll put a link to the album here in case anybody wants to use my pics in their own reports.



    Does anybody know if Chris made it home okay? His toyhauler and grill and all were still at camp when we left around 2pm, but no sign of him or his bike.:dunno

    Thanks for the heads-up Zen, I missed Shleppy's post in Ride Reports. I just moved my stuff over to the Ride Report thread.

    Feel free to use 'em for your own additions to shleppy's report if you want to.






    If anybody took pics and doesn't have a smugmug account, you can email them to me and I'll put them on my smugmug account for you. Send full resolution versions, but keep each email below 20MB in combined file sizes.

    I wanted to thank all you guys for setting this trip up! you guys rock!:clap . I wasn't planning on going but at the last moment things changed. I showed up late Friday night set up my tent went to eat in town and came back to camp and pass out! (I have a new born at home so sleep is at a premium). I didn't know anyone going except (rider914 "MATT") who I only met once at Warp. Hooked up with Matt in the morning and headed over to the group. I was worried because I don't have to many miles on the 950 and I know some of the easy trails you guys take are really double black diamond jeep trails!:huh
    Matt seemed to be the most experienced and knowledgeable rider so I think the leadership was forced upon him. He did a great job! He took us on a great ride. (THANKS!). I had a great time and all the people in my group were great! We had some great riding a good mix of stuff. We eat at a fun place out in the middle of nowhere? I don't think I could ever find that place again! dam good food!

    I'm just sorry I could stay and hang out with you guy's Sat. night:cry but duty called at home! can't wait to do it again soon! :clap

    I got a late start Saturday am., arrive in Hanna Flats around 10:45am and no ADV'rs!...:huh ..I head off to explore. After several hours, head back to Hanna, where "DustJunkie" just happens to be, after a clutch failure cut his ride short. Met he and a couple others that rolled in....I didn't have time to stick around for the evening, but it looks like all had a great time!.

    Hey Everybody! I made it out alive, thanks for checking on me Zen!:thumb . After breakfast I ended up riding around Holcum Valley and then went over the dam and around the lake where I ran into Design4D (Michael) we rode up Mill creek to Skyline (2N10) and rode across to Moonridge. I shot back across the lake via the cut off and cruised back down into Holcum via 2N09 and eventually back up to camp on 3N12. Got back to camp around 3. I logged about another 70 miles or so and I am paying for at least the last 40 today! :twitch but it was worth it.

    Thanks to all for a great trip!!:thumbup That was my first ADV get together and my first motorized experience in BB - KUDOS to a GREAT group! Thanks Trey for getting the ball rolling and thanks to all of you for making me feel welcome. Special Thanks to whomever rolled my BBQ back over to my camp! I was happy to see it there when i got back.

    This is what you call the parting shot:

    Yo Chris..

    Thanks for dragging your BBQ up there for all of us to use for the dinner shindig :thumb

    The use of the grille and the grubbin' of your apple/blueberry cobbler was much appreciated by all.
