    Good job Joe!

    Pretty excited to make it out for this event again. I'll be rolling in Friday night. I somehow suckered the wife into staying home by herself with the new baby.

    Got some news. Drufiddy made some calls and it looks like Bear Creek at M10 is 2.5 - 3 feet deep right now.

    So I left the Rally about an hour ago to ride home to Ukiah. I am now sitting at the junction of Eel River and Cutoff Roads waiting for my daughter to pick me up. Caught a 2.5 inch screw through the thickest part of my mostly worn out tire about 5 miles ago and limped to where I got a cell signal. Still had a great time and now I get a new tire!

    Not in on this ride, and i'm not sure if you are either but...

    I rode up out of Covelo yesterday and the shady areas at 6000'+ still have anywhere from 2-4 feet of snow.

    It would indeed be my pleasure to rip into some Nevada dirt with you :-) It was a true delight meeting you and all the terrific people there. A splendid memory to be sure! Thank you Dean and Janet and everyone for a truly wonderful trip :-) Hope to see you all again soon!
