    What a terrific weekend. ~100 Advriders decended upon Kernville for the weekend an we couldn't have ordered up better weather :thumb

    I had the opportunity to meet some new folks I hadn't met before and hang with some old friends, all good!

    I'm uploading pictures now but for the teaser

    Still learning the new camera and my limitations so bear with me as I continure the story. Also I'll have to defer any real ride reports to the others in attendance. I was bikeless :scratch

    Many many many thanks to Treadless and the Minions who toiled behind the sceens to make this happen. Great Job Mike!!!!

    More to come

    Just walked in the door. One food stop at El Serape, one gas stop...no, make that two, and wa la, here I is. Great time, Greg, thanks so much for that 'short' Jeep ride. I have an oops photo of Motor Mike after a rare drop. He took out Rockin Robins ride along with his own. Post it later, right now it's showwer time.

    After meeting up with Bob and James we headed over the mountain and we found a couple of hobos jumping off of a train in Caliente and we stopped to talk to them...turns out they where headed to WARPED too.

    The more the merrier!

    Mmmmhhh Caliente Bodfish :tb Sorry, no pictures...needed both hands to ride.

    Some of the camp ground welcome crew.

    Great facilities and perfect weather (thanks to my weather forcasting ability).

    Bob stole some young man's scooter and was terrorizing the camp ground.

    I am certain that the engineers at Honda never intended the Trail 90 to be subjected to this.

    [​IMG]

    Lots of great places to ride but I didn't take many pictures, which is sad because every direction you looked provided breath taking views.

    [​IMG]

    Much more than an Adventure!!

    That is all, great weekend.

    anyways, I got some pics in my camera of the festivities, I'll have to munge them later.

    It was great to meet all of you FF's and put a face to the screen name.
    I had a great time and met a lot of very cool folks.
    Thanks to all who had a hand in the organization of this epic event.
    I look forward to the next one.
    If we met spoke about future rides -PM me as I probably forgot your screen name due the steady flow of boooze and whatnot :freaky he he he

    My thanks to Treadless (Mike) and his mineons for putting on an outstanding event this year, the best yet for sure.

    :bow

    This year unfortunately saw me again suffering form the dreaded lurgy.... :sick So once I got my aching limbs down to camp, I pretty much stayed put :bluduh

    Breakfast at Tres Pinos on the way down off H25, did not suck!
