    :lurk

    I'm going nuts up here... the riding situation has become non-existant for me :cry It's not like I was ever nice to the Husky, but this is a fate worse than any I had previously conceived:

    My work is in Death March mode from now until July, but I might be able to squeak out a little time. If so, I'll be renting a truck to drive down from Ice Station Brownlee and join you guys. I'll stay tuned, and let you know when I'm officially "IN".

    Hi. I heard about this rally from Dean on another thread, and I'm very much looking forward it. I've not been out with ADVers yet. I've been riding my 250 trail bike around Tahoe NF this summer, but I want to get more dirt miles on my new BMW G650GS.

    Got a friend starting as a hydrologist at Mendo NF, so I'm keen to explore the area too.

    Cory,

    You, Marsha, Dean, Dave and the rest did great organizing and executing last year. We've got some good peeps in NorCal and it was fun to get together in that setting. :freaky And the riding's not to shabby either. :wink: Hopefully, there's less snow this year so that folks can get over Hull Mtn and have the creek crossings be a little less exciting.

    Oh and I forgot the technical support. When I blew my fork seal on Friday and thought I was done for the weekend, I think it was Nick and Clarence (and maybe others) who jumped in and got repairs done with tools and materials on site. :clap

    Thanks. And I need to wait in a more conspicuous place at the turns. Geez, what's that, like rule #1 of group riding. :doh

    "into a grow", not "into a farm". And it some serious stuff. For some reason, some people play for keeps. - :2guns

    I'm in on this. Love Mendocino. My first off road experience was here.

    I've got a big bike (BMW F650) so I don't do single track, just the main graded dirt roads, mentioning that because I saw a couple posts about some who want to do that kind of riding.

    Let me know how much and to whom to send moohlah.
