2014 Summer Central Coast Ride

so far, this is the longest distance in 2 days of riding. put @ 800 miles and with lots of new routes and stunning landscapes.

right after work, dave (pinocono) and i met at castaic at 5pm, waited for rich for a little while until i got a text that he will catch up along the way. we proceed to frazier park to meet johnny at the MAILBOXES on cuddy valley. we waited a little more for rich, and more until finally he showed up at 6:30pm. i will not let him get off the hook easily. anyway, no problem, he will return the favor in the future.

fun road on the way to carrizo. now, it's hudson ranch road, formerly cerro norroeste.

our usual gas stop at maricopa

summer season when price of gas goes up

then to elkhorn grade on our way to soda lake road

i tried my best to keep the dust only on one side of the road

johnny took us across the plains and some fun hill climbs to soda lake road

portions of soda lake rd is still asphalt...8(

we made it to the KCL campground with still some daylight left but warm

jim reserved us great spots next to the trees with plenty of shade. think i camp here at the same spot 2 years ago.

johnny didn't mess around, "when he travels he takes a wok"...hahaha....always good eats!

chris and jim have their big meat on the grill.

pity the poor me

after dinner, some social time and interaction of bright minds

living in los angeles, we don't get to see stars, except the ones in hollywood. took this one using a 60 seconds shutter speed and f1.8. i was expecting nicer result.

it was past 12:30 am when i dozed off. i was tired but had a good day!
