Holly shit - Day 6 sounds EPIC... I tried really hard to follow your path 'virtually' - I kept thinking, "long way on loaded dirt bikes..."

Didn't realize that the black rock desert thing was where Burning Man was held till I followed down your "Gerlach, NV" reference in Google Earth... You can see the whole damn city on the playa from outer space.. So bizarre/cool, that...

VERY funny that you passed through the riders on the Lobos Dual Sport event - we could have bumped into each other! I was chewing on a beer and some tequila (okay, and a burger...) there in Fort Rock at the bar with the green roof you can see in the background. Too funny that we'd be right there and not see each other!

Life is mysterious, is it not?

Again, GREAT ride report.. Hey, you figure "pegz" is gonna run a little more air in his tires next time? I count, what, THREE flats?

I'd try a few more pounds and live a little more on the skittish side, myself..
