Can't we all just get along?


Another excellent weekend.
I got up there early enough Friday to drink.
Catfish was waiting. PC and a limping dog came into camp and then a Mecedes with a microwave. Plenty of firewoood and warm temps.
Ben crawled out of his box Sat am and we hit the breakfast of champions trail, no bent bars this time.


We went up to check the snow level and got denied a few ways....

72 miles Saturday and 60 today. Lots of great single track.
RR coming after I get some sleep. I'm fucking wore out after chasing jungle all day yesterday.
Was it epic because moto tours was'ent riding with you?

I love riding with Jungle, but that second day might have killed us... we almost died up there on Saturday.

3-16-2013
We had a great group of five on Saturday, Mike the Catfish from the North, Rob the Orange beast from the OC, Ben Excndez from Bako, John Jungle mototours from the OC and myself pcvance from Visalia.
We rode to places we should not have been able to this time of year and had to pick our way through some snow drifts to get out of there...

it was green beer and green single malt on the green hill this weekend...

Perry that last picture doesn't nearly tell the whole story. I grabbed Catfish's front tire just as he was about to loop out right there. I caught it right at the balance point of "oh shit" and "thank god". In the right place at the right time.

Snowmobile? you don't need no stinking snowmobile!!!

Thanks for the brew and the ride, good times............

Yeah it reminds me of the Jimmy Lewis class drills on balance point practice.
Nice save! That's the exact spot where theGrinch bent the shit out of his bars.

a few more pics

Jessie still wasn't tired so he rolled this boulder about 60 feet into the river took him about 30 minutes with brakes dang think was heavy at the end he fell in with it ... wish I would got some vid .. lol .... aaah too be young again!

Needles, love this pic... the small upward rock formation in the front and that pointy tree to the right just makes this picture!
no need to talk about the backdrop

more cave pics


if you look closely in the center a "tree"

had to take a picture of this red rock / yellow rock - the only one around for miles. dino egg?
I'm sure there some pre-historic story to this but no time to investigate ...
must keep riding plus I have some jungle man on my back!

lunch time

That's Packsaddle Cave. It's a shame that so much vandalism has destroyed it though. You can see all of the broken off Stalactites and Stalagmites on the ceiling and floor. Many are more than a foot in diameter. There are a few columns left from where they have joined from top to bottom. It takes hundreds of years, maybe thousands for them to form. It takes some jackass minutes to break them off.

I used to hike to it with my scout troop. (insert some sick scout joke here).

Great pictures Ralphy. It looks like you and your sons have a great time riding together.
