I didn't take any pictures on my ride there. 300 miles of mostly back roads, santa cruz to hollister to 25 to los gatos creek rd to 198 to 65 to 190 to old stage rd to 155 to lake isabella. had a great time meeting up with all kinda people I hadn't seen in awhile, consumed way too much IPA.

woke up saturday feeling the worse for wear, so after a couple ibuprofen, and a bunch of strong(!) Yemen Mocha, and a half gallon of water, I only took a short ride, started up Caliente-Bodfish and turned up Breckenridge Rd. 8 miles of dodging sand, rocks, mud, and find, ooops....

so hang out and stretch, then turn around and head back down.

There is something special about the light above the stove.
Since I was a kid, seeing that light on early in the morning has always given me butterflies. It was the light that was used when you needed light in the early morning hours, but you didn’t want to wake anyone else up.
It has always represented some type of adventure even if was something as simple as getting up before dawn to go help my dad load wood or getting up at 3 am to go surf the waves so large that not everybody goes home that day.
For me it’s always represented a different kind of butterflies. It’s the kind of butterflies you get when you’re going to do something that necessitates getting up hours earlier that you’re comfortable with. The kind of butterflies you get when doing anything that requires hours of preparation and research that have to be done days before you leave.
Seeing light above the stove on for me has almost always been a good thing and on Friday morning, I got up at 3.30am to get out of Los Angeles before the sun came up.

I made it to the Poppy Preserve before dawn, but unfortunately the poppy display was not what it was last year…..

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0245.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0242.jpg

So I took off and headed toward Frazier Park. Halfway there, the temprature plunged into the 20’s and I promptly turned into an ice cube.
I was very much looking forward to the Screeching Squuriel’s wood burning stove…. But they were closed….

:cry

BUT…. This place was open….

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0252.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0251.jpg

….and they had these….

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0250.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0247.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0249.jpg

I had a cup of tea and it would have be downright insulting had I NOT purchased at least one doughnut…..

:dunno

from there I left Frazier Park…… it was a gorgeous day…

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0253.jpg

Out on to the Carrizo Plain, I was finally alone!

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0263.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0265.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0266.jpg

I noticed this water tank….

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0269.jpg

…. And something on the side…

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0274.jpg

Happy Easter!

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0276.jpg

Here is where I write about Bakersfield; It sucks and there is traffic. Oh and people don’t like it when you lane split through it. So Bakersfield – piss off.

Through Bakersfield, I made my way over to Breckenridge road because I had read about it on the WARPED thread.

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0283.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0285.jpg

It was incredible up there…. And again all alone

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0286.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0287.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0288.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0289.jpg

Its quite a road….

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0301.jpg

and there was still some snow left up there! I was thinking about bringing a snowball with me to throw at Yeti…. But then I remembered he had my shirt so…..

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0292.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0295.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0299.jpg

I was happily plugging along and the GPS told me that I was only about a mile or two from Caliente/Bodfish so I was almost off of Breckenridge. Then I came around a corner…

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0298.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0296.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0297.jpg

Three feet of snow…. EASY.

:bluduh

dammik!! The guy in the 4x4 was having issues getting out…. So the GS certainly wasn’t going anywhere. So I rode all the way back to Bakersfield and back up 178.

Lame.

Anyways…. Camp.

Perfect day to ride…..

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0323.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...2311/hawk1.jpg

A few of us headed out to Jawbone…

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0328.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0330.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0331.jpg

It always amazes me that people dump trash out here

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0335.jpg

We had been waiting for awhile and Brice went back to check on Karen and it tuned out that she had gone down badly at about 50 mph – breaking something in her foot

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0337.jpg

She was determined to ride her bike out but first she insisted on walking a few hundred yards of sand….

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0342.jpg

So we turned around to help Karen get home.

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0343.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0344.jpg

Keil turned up

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0345.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0346.jpg

and company

Brice walking back to his bike

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0356.jpg

On the way back we saw ‘Zilla heading through the water

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0357.jpg

Don’t get yer feet wet….

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0358.jpg

after we got back we made sure Karen was comfortable with cookies and ice and checked out the top of the hill

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0360.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0362.jpg

http://i848.photobucket.com/albums/a...1/DSC_0365.jpg

Dinner that night was a blast. I met lots of people that I had not known until now and had a chance to hang out with lots of old friends. Every time I make it to WARPED I always meet great new people and remember how many friends are there.
This is a great annual gathering that we need to keep going at all costs!!!!

Goodbye Kernville….. we’ll be seeing you next year….

well, I was 8 miles from Bodfish-Caliente when I hit this...
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_J...4/IMG_8362.JPG

about a mile from the top. I could have gotten past that tree, but no way I was going around that gate. I'm guessing you were 2 miles or so from that gate.

choccoloco 04-25-2011 06:47 AM

Some really awesome photo's there.

Agree, ride to an event, not on a trailer.

RAZR 04-25-2011 08:44 AM

videos soon and pics sooner of us riding our dirtbikes that we trucked in.:dllama

just over 100 miles total in 3 days of riding real trails.:evil


thanks again to Yeti and crew for another great WARPED ! ! ! ! ! ! ! :freaky

if your bike is over 600 cc's or has more than one cylinder, STFU about the trailering. if i wanted to ride the streets of Kernville, i would have rode my street bike up to the event.
