    the other trip i want to add was the San Diego ride (Nov. 15-21, 2020) for chrono order's sake or timeline. there's a separate RR here. it was my 2nd time riding the backcountry roads, it was fun and thankful to several San Diego inmates for the ride along.

    Mike....one of the better ways to have a happier 2021 is to put more miles.

    wishing you and all the PPS a livelier new year!

    Don, @Xt225dm came along with us.....not on an XT. Don is new to riding, only a few rides actually, and he did great.....made it to Mengel Pass.

    2020.12.26-30 Death Valley end-of-the-year ride

    we have this yearly post-xmas campout tradition of hanging out in the SoCal desert. for 2020, we decided to do it in Death Valley and stay at Panamint Springs Resort, so we can give them our business and hand over $ donation. there's also a thread seeking people to support PSR. the other good reason to be out in the remote desert location is to escape the big city covid pandemic. right now, CA is experiencing the highest volume of sick people and hospitals are in full capacity.

    i like as many friends to join us but because of the obvious reason, we limited only 2 campers per site. we're lucky Alan was able to book 4 spots but later able to add 1 more. my apology to those who didn't get notified.....:evil

    Nice Joel!
    Was a great time with a spectacular group of FF's, a great way to end a shitty year. Thanks for having me.



    I think this photo sums up camp.

    Yay! I was hoping you guys would have a RR!
    Glad you got pics of the silt bed :D


    I enjoyed the video and that part on Lippincott where you stopped (at the 2:04 mark) is exactly where I dabbed!
    That's a loose, crappy spot. :fitz Bet it gets a lot of people.

    The drone footage (an actual drone! :lol3 not just a tall person) is really neat.

    Fun stuff, guys! Looking forward to more.

    Great edit on the vid. That takes a lot of equipment, time, planning, etc. editing too is a time suck. GREAT JOB!
    It’s hard to both ride and film at the same time.

    Here's 17 minutes of riding from this trip, long crappy no particular order edits, no music with questionable audio and very little time spent on color grading. I'll be tinkering with it in the future and updating the file, I still need to unpack!
    Should be fun for those that were there, everyone gets plenty of screen time to marvel at your awesomeness. :freaky

    kelly...you made it look easy going up on Lippencott and we thought of it before we left camp. glad @rider914 suggested down is the better way. not that easy since even on first gear, i was going 15-20 mph, not sure why my 701 has marginal engine brake (high idle issue). i was following Matt and going faster than him, and to avoid collision, i took another line which was a bad one and ended up crashing endo. bent (tucked in) the rear brake lever which made my ride worse. luckily just a bruised right bicep (shoulder pad took the brunt) and a deflated ego.

    i might have mistakenly linked your RR to the nOObs rally thread which will kill a lot of nOObs who think they can do it too...haha

    yeah, having a helmet cam on big wan while following you on a track mode is almost like a drone.....and cheap!
