    That's really close to where I live... anyone grab him yet? If not then perhaps I'll head over tomorrow and give him a lift.

    Well I finally found the place today. It took me a few trys over the last two days to figure out how to get to Camp Far West Road from my side (HWY 49 & Combie) but WOW! What a fun ride. :thumb

    I came to lots of these before finding a way through :huh

    So I finally found the spot (I think), but I didn't find our little friend. Did anyone else pick him up already? Or did I just not see him?

    Gee Gsuv this was not easy. I was able to find him after a hard look around. The grass has grown over him since he found his new home some time ago.

    I found him a new place with some fun riding through snow and finally had to give up going higher to the spot I had in mind. His new home is nice and it seems his green skin is brighter with the snow around.

    Here is the new spot:

    N 39 23.508
    W 120 52.023

    I've been having a hard time reseizing the pictures to post, but I have faith that some of you will find him soon. :wink:

    Have fun

    Anyone pick her up? I went out yesterday to look for her and it appears she is gone.

    BTW, if you go look and are riding a big bike (say, perhaps, a GS with slick tires) I don't recommend trying to ride under that train trestle. It's wetter than it looks. :lol3

    Man, I'm busy! But a quick ride out on the DR might not be outta the question either.
    On the HD's Saturday with Cammy, packing for Sunday departure for AK on Friday.
    Thursday for a few hours?

    I checked on Ralph a few weeks ago (I put him there). The hole I put him in was no longer there...so either the gophers ate him or buried him.

    I have to work on Thursday until the 4-5pm time frame and I have Friday through Monday off. So I was thinking Friday might be the oportune day to chase lizards.

    I haven't looked up the coordinates yet to figure how close they are?

    Hopefully they're not too far off road as I haven't broken the XR400 out of the shed yet. The 650 is due for a new rear tire soon too? I'll look up the coordinates too and see if I need to go to the shed tomorrow after work.
