Day 2 was great fun with some nice folks who I didn’t know that, rightfully, were initially reluctant to have me join them because they had big plans and riding with “that guy” wasn’t one of them. (I’d do the same so I understood).
I managed to say the right things and was welcomed into the group with the understanding that there would be bail-out points along the way if I found myself in too heavy with this very skilled dirt oriented group of best friends and family.

The ride leader who had the ultimate say.



We took a trail that started ~ a mile east of camp that headed south. It looked simple enough to start but got more and more technical as we went along. No pic but it was a wash with rock of all sizes, sand of various depths and lots of pinch flat opportunities.

Then on to Goler wash.



The Mine. ( I don’t know the name of it)





On to Furnace Creek for beer and grub.





Then slabbing it back to camp for beers, grub, old friends and new friends.











I didn’t win the Klim gear but I did win a bottle of smooth tequila that died a very pleasant death.

I had a blast!!!



And I’d hope that some of you might join us next year on the annual Cal City area rides.
Like this one without the drama.

Edit- I told some about the semi-famous fires we start in the desert so i'll go ahead and post a video I took.
