    We leave thursday morning from frazier park plan on being ready to ride by 9:00am (please PM Trailtrick if you are going to need parking for a truck)

    The ride to the Piute's will be about 150/200 miles, across the valley to the Green Horn mtn's with a food stop around Lake Isabella. Than on to the Piute Mtn's to Trailtrick's place for dinner and the nite (Thanks Javier)
    This leg of the ride is limited to 8 like minded boy's
    the dinner and beer is being supplied by Javier at a cost of $15 please paypal to trailtrick@sbcglobal.net.

    Friday's ride will be mostly dirt and sand with a food stop in randsberg
    than on to Trona for gas and supplies than on to South park for a nite under the stars in the desert or maybe a cabin there are a few up there. For those in the area that would like to meet, ride and or
    camp with us be at the bottom of south park at about 1:30pm or meet in randsberg around 11:00am.. meeting can be tricky so we will need work out those details as we get closer to the ride

    Herrhelmet and Kenny are going to briggs cabin thursday.
    Hopefully no one will be there...
    He will have a green late model Jeep Cherokee with big tires and a roof rack.
    Kenny is going to take food and drink for those that are planning
    to camp at south park there is a $ 15.00 cost the detail's are being
    worked out but.. and there's a limit of 12 FF's for this
    Paypal susustudio@aol.com to Herrhelmet

    Saturday's ride is over to Pleasant canyon down to ballarat and on to
    Panamint springs, drop the camping gear gas up and ride some more
    I'm planning a ride to Cerro Gordo and if there's time up Lipincot to the
    race track and over Hunter mtn and back to panamint springs for the nite

    Sunday's ride is back to randsberg for lunch and on to Fazier park
    and or home

    Plan to travel fast and light there will be stops for food, drink and gas
    The Piute's leg of this ride is full :deal Sorry
    But there's a big desert out to play in... let's meet in Randsberg or
    Panamint.

    Please call and reserve a room or camp spot
    Reservations 775-482-7680
    I only have one camp spot and I think it has space for two tents
    To be comforable one space for two rider's is a good idea
    Also there are RV spot's
    I'm up dating this post as needed
    Let's Ride :beer

    Sounds good... but depending on the size of the group, why not the warm springs?

    to lipincott I have a 250 mile range.. how about sat night at the springs.
    Base camp out of panamint.. plus

    by South Park do you mean Goler Wash, Mengle etc?:clap

    Steel Pass with a Loop around via Lippencott is a full day ride...8 hours...perfect for Sat...not sure you could make 2 days out of it...:ear ?

    That leaves Cerro Gordo and Darwin etc for a nice Sunday Ride...???

    in the end though...I will ride anywhere....:deal :freaky

    I spoke with the giant loop guy's a while ago and they where working on
    a gas bladder that would fit their loop bags could be a good set up for DV
    I'm very happy with my great basin bag
    The pig tank is ugly but it's the best tank that's a bolt on for the 690
    I will trade gas for beer :slurp

    South park is not Goler/mengle
    It's up Pleasant canyon across up over to Middle park and down south
    park to windgate about a 30 mile loop some mines and cabins to check
    out. I plan to spend the day taking beer and lunch.
    The riding is a little harder than goler/mengle...
    Cerro Gordo is on the ride list.. never been there and I'd like to check out

    Cerro Gordo is pretty cool. Rob and I did that a while back. There's a guy who rents out a bunkhouse for groups too.
