    Back home safe and sore. Not much riding for me, I got pitched within the first two hours and busted up my rib cage pretty good. I think everyone else had a great time. We assemble a bunch of great riders. Can't wait to heal and get out with you guys again. Thanks for all the help guys, great fun making me laugh around the fire!:whip

    Home.....

    great damn trip....Thanks everyone...Rich et al....

    Heal up quick and no sneezing...

    The trails were outstanding ....a few whoops...but worth it....:clap

    P.S....hitting a 3" tree branch at 20mph leaves the same mark on your arm as getting hit with a baseball bat....hmmmm...good to know...:lol3

    I'm home. Took about 60% dirt roads on the way back. Found a guy on cruiser bike out of gas on the 395, I gave him a couple gatorade bottles from my tank and he was on his way. Hit some dense fog threw the cajon pass. Visibility was down to 50 feet. Good thing I was on the powerline trail through the pass and not on the 15. I got halfway through the cajon pass before I had to turn around and find the freeway. It's hard to find a dirt route all the way through. Hit some heavy rain a few miles from and got inside just in time.

    That was the best trip I've taken to date. I'll put up some photos and videos in a few days.

    Home safe, Great two days of riding on some gnarly trails. Klammer, I hope you're feeling better soon, fractured ribs HURT! Thanks again for putting this ride together. Today I rode Mahogany-Beach-Rattlesnake-Bonito-Schaeffer to Stoney Meadow and back with Nowwhat, atpalmer, Mark, & Brian, I couldn't keep up with the FF's (Fast-Fucks) but it was fun anyway. Yesterday we rode the northern section Beach Ridge-Albanita-Blackrock MTN.-Granite-Brooder-to Jackass Peak Trail and back Albanita-Beach back to camp. We logged around 85 miles for both days. See you FF's on the next ride! Perry(pcvance) :clap :lol3 :fyyff

    I could have gone a bit faster but I started to imagine the consequences. I still had to get to Kennedy Meadows in one piece.
