    Thanks for the report @liv2day looks like a hell of a lot fun.

    Great RR L2R! Really like the drone work, but it does need more Allman Bros. :hide

    Thanks @dammitdave! And LOL - likely kinda jarring to go from classic, live Allman Bros to Tool. Midnight Rider is one of my favs, need to get more footage so I can use something from Bad Company in the future too.

    For those interested, I pulled the tracks off my GPS. Also posting the planned tracks (2020-10-16_China_Hat_Weekend.gpx), though a word of caution if you try to do the 177 mile planned track - you'll need to find an alternate way south from the China Hat CG. Best bet is to likely head further east like the 157 mile track, or cut some miles off and head west then south so you're not dealing with private property on the southbound section.

    I look forward to getting back over there and exploring more, it's crazy how many FS roads are within the Deschutes NF; and you can take routes out of that to head south into tons of BLM land. Frickin' awesome.

    dammmnnnn l2d, you always bring the best of OR....:clap

    aside from the good riding, seeing the pile high stack of firewood, being toasty in the evening just completes the perfect day!

    Thanks @NSFW! Appreciate it man. Don’t recall if your ride up here brought you through China Hat, but it’s a great area.

    Keep the knobby side down man!
