We started with

a few miles of pavement...



but soon found some gravel. Yeah, straight, easy, traversing farmland, but a great way to get back in tune with the bikes.

the miles

melted underneath us.



Dave was having some GPS issues, so I took the lead. We spread out on accounta the dust.



A coupla dead ends necessitating easy re-routes, but it was all on a grid for the most part. High speed fun.

Ron, and Dave:

It's easier than you think. I guarantee you'll have no regrets. Once you ride a dirtbike with tassels, there's no looking back.

Break time

Ron didn't have a camelbak, and called for a rest to rehydrate.



Hey Ron, did santa bring you a drinkbag of some sort? Truth be told, we all could use the stretch:

Photo-op with Monkey in a tree,



Dave did a jig,



it's a Canadian thing.

Laugh Tassels envy part deux

Coolio, and they're vintage, too. (I wonder what that means?)

Women and children

hell, even the men-folk, ran for safety as we rolled through Drayton Valley.



I think we gassed up if memory serves. But it was quickly back to the harvest:



Another break,



liquid for bodies,



and bikes. In Cynthia we gassed up for I think the last time for a good long while, and picked up some vittles for dinner.



then back into the wilds. We started to get this creeping sensation that we were leaving the flats and entering the hills. It was a near perfect day, and I was slipping into... not the



but The Mobius Zone

Again,

I must object to crossing the Pembina "river" (sic).



since "na" means "river" in the Athabaskan languages,



technically I think we crossed the Pembina, or the Pembi river. But who am I, the grammar police?



What a perfect day!

We struggled a bit

trying to find a campground, got a little turned around. So we stopped and busted out the (gasp) paper maps.



and we were able to trace our route, and figure out where we were, and where we wanted to go, and we found a short(ish) cut, and eventually got to Elk River Rd (?) which got us to the campground:



It was a great start to the ride.

We set up camp



cut firewood,



cooked dinner,





and sipped adult beverages until night fell, and after hanging out at our awesome campfire, we turned in for the night to end a great start to M8!

Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011. M8-day#2

Sept. 11th. Never quite sure what to say. Life goes on, I guess. Here we are in the beautiful back country, cut off from all media. I woke up early and made this video:

"September 11th. We have no idea what's going on in the world. I don't think anyone else does either."



The sun also rises,



and after the others were up, Ron shared this poem with us which he reads every Sept. 11th:



Amen to that.

As the sun chased away

the night's chill, we packed up,





and enjoyed the solitude and quiet of the morning before a long day of wanton petrol consumption and internal combustion with abandon.
