    Dean, are there still spots? I could jam out on my zombie DR after work Friday.

    Looks like it's Mendo Rally V for me as my little Brother just decided he wants to go boat-in camping at Lake Sonoma. I've gotta go with him as he has a bad shoulder and needs my help hoofing the gear and stuff.

    Hope you all have a great time!

    Well back in reality and it sucks... Mendo was a much needed vacation, riding was awesome, food was just over the top delicious, and that whole going dirt biking and single skiing in the same day... Life doesn't suck!!!!!!

    Made it home in high-spirits around 5pm, after a slow start getting out of camp, followed by as many twisties as I can find on the way home. Sitting here, a little sun-burned with a nice cold beer and grinning from ear to ear.

    A huge thank you to everyone for a truly enriching weekend. I can only guess at all the work it took to pull this off. Amazing food, outstanding beer and most important of all; great people.

    Can't wait to go riding somewhere awesome again; can't believe I missed riding with chris666 on all the easy stuff. :rofl
