    Thanks Tim and anyone else who helped put this together, I'm planning on it for next year already. also thanks to whoever it was that loaned me a helmet saturday, you saved my ride (and my sanity) after I was an hour away from home it hit me that I forgot mine and had to convince myself that with the great group of people here, someone would hopefully loan me one. I was right, its the best group I belong to.

    :huh Gee! in deed you're just like Jaff12.5!!!! .. you did 5000 miles since sunday??


    Super Suz, get well soon.

    Well I'm also back home.. made it yesterday night!

    I almost melted and evaporate, South Texas and Monterrey are VERY, VERY HOT ..... I crossed the border at rush hour at 113°F... not nice.

    Thank you all for the great time, it was a pleasure to meet all of you and the riding was expectacular. Too bad I can only remember a couple of names, I blame it on the wind noise helmet shake .... Im dumber than ever :D

    Somebody has to say it.


    Now is the time to start thinking about next year.
    It's time to get your proposal together and talk it up.
    I will not be hosting it again. The rally may or may not be moved to a different location. It's a lot of work. But the rewards are there. So be creative and lets here what you have in mind.

    I was always under the impression that my own Olympic Mountains are the finest dual sport riding on Earth, I stand corrected (Till Winter)

    Maybe, but being a foster parent sometimes throws a wrench into things at the last minute so I might not be the best candidate for the position. If WF'10 is in CO (or Moab) I'll help out with a lot of the leg work. It's kind of a big event for one person to be in charge of so I don't mind lending a hand.

    And I can always organize some rides. I seem to be good at that. :ricky

    i made it... actually, i ran into a doctor and a chiropractor in moab, and they checked me out, agreed that it "probably" wasnt broken or seriously torn. i rode home, avoiding the twisties.:cry it was pretty excruciating, and im going in for some radiology tommorow, but im pretty sure it is just a deeply bruised shoulder.

    i shall ride again soon!
