Glad I went, though the ash and smoke on the ride up hw88 gave me second thoughts. Second day in particular the ride east of Minden was beautiful and mostly dirt! The 50/50 ride the first day was fun too except the scenery was rather lost on me since you couldn't see much..
Next year I'll do the Jimmy Lewis class, my standing turns suck, esp downhill!
I have a bunch of pics and backstory posted here: http://s.lofifoto.com/p/story.html?s...6e6757433983b4
