I ended up coming back around to the reservoir went through featherville and to Rockybar. I was surprised how little fire damaged could be seen from the road. Sorry no pictures

It was a good day....
Glad you were able to get in another ride.

Hiya Sam nice to see back on the grid. I've been thinking about you!

Death Valley is an awesome winter spot we had a great time there 3 years ago, not too many tourists there at that time. However days are short.

March in Death Valley with the flowers blooming if fabulous. Hey Sam if your ride to Baja Death Valley is on the way.

Now all of you stop talking about DV, you're making me want to go down there again.

Did I see someone is going to write a ride report? You know when Rocky starts tapping her tootsie you're in trouble, trailrider383

Just checking in with all you guys in paradise!
Hey Sam, was wondering where you went? Maybe a wolf tag and a nice lightweight varmint rifle.
I tried to make it over Trinity Mtn around the tenth, looked at the FS map and it wasn't to clear if we could make the loop from the east or not
We also ran into this.

I had/have never been over Trinity and it was a beautiful day, now I have to wait for next year.

Alright, dang-nabbit, I think I'm gonna take tomorrow or Wednesday off and finally ride. Glad you got out there, Ed. Was still thinking Trinity-ish, maybe Bear Hole trail, but am open to whatever. Hollar if you want to team up.

I actually took a break from the business stuff today and rode with my brother! Got the 800 all the way to the ridge on Rattlesnake mountain! About 12 miles of single track. Not bad for a big bike. Great day for a ride!

Glad to see you back from the armed hike in the woods. I can relate to the no longer as easy as it was. I find I no longer climb the hills like I use to.
I'm up for either Baja or Death Valley if the timing is right. I do have a couple obligations in Feb and March.

Well, work out those obligations...


Not too much interest right now from folks, but buy December I think they'll change.


OH! and humping those hills are NOT as enjoyable at all as it use to be!! Kinda like wrestling a 500 pound bike over rock fields and single track. not the riding it's the picking the dang thing up......over and over again the older I get the heavier it gets, just like those hills steeper the older I get. Ha-Ha


Hey Clint I'm doing a PowerPoint Presentation on Nov 15 at HT on my travel through Mexico; hope you can make it.

Sam, I'm heading for DV area the first week in January with my travel trailer. I want to be in AZ by mid January so that leaves me a couple weeks to kill enroute. I'm planning on bumming around AZ for about a month, then start back in early February-ish. I'm not sure which bike to take, but if this fits into your schedule, let me know. Brad

Hi' ya Brad, Hope you had a good coast run. I would love to leave in Jan, but I am [pretty tapped out right after the end of year and Holidays. I plan on hauling my DRZ down figured that to be the best ride for DV and Baja too.

We need to have a sit down and kinda talk it over. Maybe a luncheon/planning meetup, probably towards the end of November I post it up.

Do you have your Pass Port?


I really want to do another Copper Canyon Run ..

Made it up along Trinity Ridge, dropped down to the Middle Fork near Atlanta. Saw lots of burn. Lots. Smelled nothing but ash and charred wood for a long time. It's burned in patches, as I guess you'd expect. Some areas untouched, some burned brush and branches, some completely scorched earth (real slimey when it's wet).

Pictures shortly.
