Was actually thinking making Butterfield (or another place) the meet point. We would have a good mix of big bike & small bike options. I for one would love to bring my 530 and explore around the area.

Morning dawns at the OMS (Occupy Mobile Station) Rally


Blake holding court


Think I was originally slated for group 4, but got conscripted into group 5 (HoW)

Group leader CA Stu was in a hurry to roll


SoCalPhil and spafxr


Thru the orchards and aiming for Nate Harrison


Regrouping at the S7 pavement


Made our way past Mother's and down East Grade before the fog packed in


Fun stuff


A little more blue sky and sunshine approaching Lake Henshaw


Rolled into The Hideout fairly early and waited for other groups to arrive before heading inside for lunch


One of these 'skewters' is not like the other ones


Lunch was followed by a little piece of Mesa Grande for desert


Thought I took more pics of Black Canyon, but the only one that showed was the very end approaching Ramona


A few dozen miles of pavement (Hwy78>Hwy79>S2>S3) took us to the top of Grapevine Canyon


Caught up with another group on the descent into the canyon


Their smooth sweep rider waved me by and I tried to pass as clean as possible


Nearing San Felipe creek, more blue sky ahead


Stopped at Hwy78 to regroup the group


Riders trickling in


Stopped at Stagecoach for supplies then made the Blair Valley loop on the way to camp


Setting up at Butterfield


Managed to find a spot with what turned out to be very good wind protection


Sure it was a little cold, but standing IN the fire seemed a bit extreme

Smooth? I'm smooth like a square wheel.

Tent maker extraordinaire! Great shot with H8chains and the rainbow over Banner grade. Fun riding with you Caleb (sp?), you did a great job at sweep.

I would have liked to continue on but I was cold and wet and ready to get off that mountain. Once I got to the 15 it was pretty warm and partly sunny.

In two hours I was home!

You're not fooling any of us. We know what a tease you are...sleeping all alone in your 4-man bivvy.
