Hmm... Our pipeline gets patroled, by foot or ATV every year, the trees would be a hinderence. I wonder about some of the background conversations about the post project reclamation. I suppose it would depend if the land was BLM, FS, or private.

Most of the contracts say they have to do the restoration and monitor for a short period. If they slap seedlings in the ground when it's hot and dry chances are good they won't make it. It's not often that they ever have to go back and replant. Without the netting the porcipines would destroy every one of those starts in no time.

The netting will break down after a few years of sunlight like most plastic. Even the biodegradeable stuff doesn't break down once it's buried in a landfill as it needs exposure to sunlight, air and moisture to break down. I've pulled newpapers from the 1950s out of landfill excavations here in the arid areas of the west that you could still read and page through.

Anywho, patiently waiting for more....

Hello, have enjoyed reading about the Mobius Trip. I live in Wyoming and waiting to see where you are planning your route on the next leg. I am just a noob in this adventure riding but enjoying it so far. If I get a chance just might run into you out on the trail.

Thanks for your Ride Report!

Dr. Rock and LDF,

After weeks of reading this RR, I've finally caught up. For the past 11 weeks i have been convalescing/recovering from a ruptured disc and this report has kept me anxiously awaiting my next ride.

Thanks a ton for the time and effort you put into the report, and kudos to you for the amount of prep you do before each ride.
Here's to me being ready to ride the Sierras on September 20.

Looking forward to more.

Brent

Thanks for your patience

I've been having a lot of patients. Crazy busy. It's definitely summer and trauma season. Almost done with the next set of photos, will be carrying on with the ride report as soon as I can.

I can relate. As an LEO, the summer is always busier than winter. The heat must cook the brain into crazyness and people use alcohol and drugs to cool it.

M9 Day 9, Sunday May 20, 2012

Today we'd wake up in the woods, and go to sleep back in the desert. Our route would continue across the northeast corner of California, and dive into NV near Gerlach and the Black Rock Desert which is where Burning Man is held every year Aug/Sept.

The sun, and we were up early. Looked like it was going to be beautiful weather.







We had our coffee and oatmeal, and felt pretty rested and ready to go.



I think I remember Dave saying something about it being cold.



The monkey didn't seem to mind, though.



By the time we broke camp and packed up,





the sun was cutting through the trees and warming us right up.



We were hoping for good weather and some solid miles.

Straight

outta the gates, we were cruising on this road,



and missed a planned turnoff onto a tiny two-track that would have been a short-cut. By the time I caught the hot-rodders in front of me, we'd gone a ways, and tracing the GPS saw that we'd end up in the same place, so we carried on.

Well, we'd learn to try and take the easier road...





this was what the other end looked like of the road not taken.
