Hey Joel, thanks for posting!
Enjoyed your solo KTM 350 report from Mamouth:

Plan to learn to pack the KLR lighter, and follow in your footsteps!

God bless Huell Howser!

see you on the trail,

Hi oldxr,

I'll try to remember to send you a pm next time we're camping up there ... it was fun to meet up with our friend Ryan around the campsite ... I'd say campfire, but we could not find any wood [easily] at Leavitt Lake, so we went without a fire ... which was fine, although I usually enjoy a campfire ... Thanks for the tip about the road to the Marine Base ...

see you around the cold fire-ring,
