Good photos!

Thanks for the photos on your site Don!

When I was taking a photo of you with your camera, I didn't realize the subtle intended
meaning of you sitting on the bomb looking like a guy with the largest tallywhacker on
the planet!

Next year we'll find some REAL sand, since you'll be up to par.

Tom

Mucho Gracias para Kern familia

May I echo Bourkeco's sentiments!!! Mike and Richard and anyone else who pitched in.
Y'all done a magnificent job again, for the 6th? or 7th? year. I had such a good time that
my muscles are still sore after 2 days! Let's do it again next year!

Perhaps the lower turnout was because of the later date (?) By next year's ride we should
have figured out how to get around the gate to the microwave repeater towers. They have
effectively placed large rocks at both sides of the gate, making it a good bit harder to
circumvent it.

Thanks again! IT WAS A BLAST!

Thanks to everybody who came out to ride and the rest will just have to wait a year.

Chris and I went out chasing the trails that would hand us our behinds and sure enough, we found some! We almost had to carry our bikes out of some ravines and we did some dragging of the bikes where it was too tight to turn around. We also did some short cliff climbs to get up some canyon walls, crashed, jumped over some bike swollowing ravines, blasted through some deep sand, crashed again, rode some dried mud hills and ruts and that was Saturday.

Got back to the ranch and cooked up some carne asada. Did pretty well if I do say so myself.

Sunday I broke out the nine five oh and showed Bourkeco and Dave to the Bat Cave Buttes and gave Scott and Dave a good laugh as I wallowed around the desert in the deepest sand on a heavy bike with full tanks but it was a fun ride and kept me focused trying not to swap out and make a yard sale in the big sand whoops. Stopped at the sand dunes, burned a few high speed, dirt track style circles on the dry lake, explored some abandoned desert relics and loaded up for the drive home sunday.

It was fun riding out with Haz-Mat and made the long drive seem not too bad. It's alway nice to see Tom and good to see some new faces as well. OneEffinName, that sticker looks right at home on your bike!

Kelly, Ron, Brent, I EXPECT to see you guys next year!

Thanks again everybody for the fun!

Mike

Photographs needed!

Request to riders who brought along their iPhones and/or cameras:

Don't forget to post your photos on this thread, so that those of us
who can't afford a photo device can revel in the memories of bashing
our asses all over the desert. Crash photos are particularly good!

Photos of trestles, sagging rail lines, tortoises, bombs, helicopters,
girls, cops, BLM officers and other yahoos are OK as well.

Thanks for your attention to this serious matter!

Hi everyone. Was wondering if this is the group of riders we met at the locked gate? One of you had fallen in the rocks trying to cross the gate.

Yup! I took the tumble! Next time I'll try something different.

I'm going to visit the BLM in Palm Springs
to see if there's some way that we can access this public land.

I did ride to the top (before the fall) and the view was super.

Don,

I went to your blog, but only saw 11 photos (?) Not including the "chatting" photos. I tried to
steal a few of the photos, but the result was fuzzy. What's up?

I enjoyed riding with you, and if you are down in the desert next year, send me an email on
this Adventure Rider site. Maybe we can go riding.

It was cool meeting everyone, I guess I need to visit this site more often. Been out here 3 months and now it is time for us head home. Maybe next year I can join in . Have fun and be safe.
