Thanks, it was a holiday weekend and a Sunday...we were 100 miles from camp in the middle of nowhere. I got back to Lone Pine and Nixels had given the bike to the gas station owner who is going to pass it to his grandson who likes motorcycles..the drive chain had broken, it was done. Easy come, easy go.

Nixels got to ride biatch on the flat deck of the GS, I didn't bring the passenger seat.

No pics on the 100 mile highway slog, but we saw my buddy Nowhere Bob riding down Hwy 6 on his street legal DR125 with a flat front tire. He's crazy, said he's just gonna air it up a few times and get back to his camp. Invited him to our camp for breakfast tomorrow.

Got close to Benton and the sky opened up, Hwy 120 turned into a river and we swam into camp. Renaud had stayed in camp with his van, gotten a nice sunburn and gathered up our tents when they blew away.

The rain drops were seriously the size of quarters.

We piled in the van to go look at the highway. Whiskey warmup made for poor judgment...see the foreground, looks the same as the dirt to the right of the fence? My brain said it was dirt and I fell in almost up to my chest.
