    It was a rider, IIRC he was an older gent.
    Crossing that road in the dark is dangerous, for sure.

    Hot tip for Friday dinner: DiNapoli's Firehouse. Walking distance and good hearty pizza/pasta.

    I’m out. Made it to Cajon and turned around by road closures and the parking lot that was the 15. Hopefully I get the chance next year.

    The 14 over to Palmdale looks completely clear, no need to go over Cajon Pass

    Road Alert

    Pls read.

    Two sections of the I14 North have black ice. There are crashed vehicles in the road. Black ice is about 200 yards before you see the CHP lights, by then too late. Slow down.

    Mostly everyone already left the Embassy parking lot. The sun is out. Looks nice.

    according to the doc, it’s a really bad sprain- nothing broken.
    Hurts like the hammers of hell if I don’t move it enough.

    Day 2 start going much smoother than yesterday. The Palmdale parking lot ice rink made it very interesting.

    Some of the guys out front came in telling stories about deep standing water frozen on the surface, many had a surprise dunk when breaking through the ice.

    All clear today, just cold. Red Rock was reported impassable at 4000 ft so lots of disappointed riders today
