    Thanks for the RR. Great job on the plaque and covering some amazing country. Have been going up there since 1993 and I still love it.

    That first day RR and the whole intent to erect the memorial should be in the "thread of awsome" rather than a ride report!
    Well done!

    if I'd gone on this trip - I would have fell over, even with a good sidestand!

    Happy 4th!!!!

    I am finally getting my pictures and story done for my ride report. Hopefully I will get it started up sometime this weekend.
    We visited on 6/20/12. I left some pencils and a sharpener. I sure hope people give the place the respect it deserves! Thanks again for making and installing that super bad ass plaque and stand Hodakaguy! :clap Great job!!!!
