Hey Zen-
Was that the Silver Creek Trail? Looks like more water than last year.
Sorry I missed it. Next year for sure.

Home safe and recovering. I got home at 10:00pm last night after hauling butt to make it that early.

Too many people to thank. First of all is Stonewall. He shows that we can get an event together and it be nothing short of amazing and not a big logistical mess like poor treadless had to deal with for WARPED.

The last person I'd like to thank is Jake (dustjunky?). With this damn lung bit I've had and travel for work, I'm not in the best shape of my life and he took the GS about 20 yards that I just needed a break from going up Silver Canyon. I feel like a pansy, but it has certainly forced me to want to get well and back in shape (hopefully hitting the gym tonight).

In between, all the guys I rode with who I only kind of knew based on screen names who were very patient and willing to take a pansy noob along with them. Henry, John, Danny, Jake, Dave and the guys I camped next to but never got names from. All of you are tops and a ton of fun to hang out with.

This was easily in my top 5 riding experiences and defined adventure riding for me.

Great trip!

The highlight was the Coyote flats trail, very challenging on the big beast.

Pix don't to the steepness and elevation justice.








The dirty fast route to Bishop, and that's the last I ever saw of them. . . .

There are a lot of people I would like to thank for the great weekend, but these 2 are on top of the list.

Stonewall with the beard for organizing this event, including the Reds Meadow dinner on Saturday night.






Sito for hosting 30+ riders a Carne Asada and Chicken Bar-b-Q (2old2race special menu ) dinner on Friday night.




Other notables....DSM8, Scorpion, spafxer, and everyone who was there.

Someone was quick to point out that I managed to dump the SM on the pavement after keeping it upright on dirt all the way to WMRS and back. But in my defense, that is no pavement! I had a direction change in mind but didn't quite fully commit to it so the result is this:

I only realized I had a crooked handlebar while I was riding back to LA. Somehow the handlebar moved in its clamp due to the impact. On a happier note, the Pelican case my camera was in, which happened to be on the "ground" side, did its job perfectly.

Thumb Whooping cough wonder boy!!

Sally,
Bob (AnySunday) on the 950 SE, Allen on the 950 SE (screen name?) & I (12GSA) camped next to you, so we were able to enjoy your whooping cough black lung shit you brought with you. It was fun riding with you up to WMRS. That ride offered so much for you from the 100+ mph dirt straights to the rocky tight switch backs & some deep water crossings. You were much harder on yourself of your dirt skills, give yourself more credit, you handled everything well. I was glad you came along so I had a partner to wait with as the GSA's cooled down in the shade up to WMRS.

Props to Stonewall. I was thinking on the way home today, had this event not happened, I would have missed 3 full days of epic riding and great commeraderie. Thanks for putting up with us FF's. Looking forward to next year!!

Bill
