Hey I want to say thanks too. Those were my old stomping grounds from the 70's. They used to have an enduro at Stonyford called the Jackhammer. The name was appropriate. Haven't seen Berryessa since about 1972. Looks the same. Was in Napa last month, though. I was shocked to see the Christian Brothers Winery was turned into a chef's school...

Great ride report! Nice photos and well-written too. Always good to see the how much someone digs that first ride! Will be looking for your next report. Thanks for taking us along!

Hope you guys are staying warm and dry in Colorado!
Watch out for mud - we had lots when we were there.
It's the worst for 2up.

Hey Pantah! One thing (of the many things) I am thoroughly enjoying about ADV rides is seeing these small towns I would never have otherwise gone through. And the people have been so friendly and quirky!

Hi Kelly! Oh boy! The prep ride in Mendo was fun! We just got back from COBDDR/UTBDR ride - WOW! THAT was UBER-FUN! We got lucky with the weather in CO and didn't need to alter any of the planned rides and got in a couple of extra routes. We faired OK in UT as well though some trails were washed away. I am organizing the pics and vids now and will do a RR soon.

I LOVE the sleeping bag! Best ever! Sadly - due to inclement weather during our trip, I rarely got the chance to use it. Will have to go to drier areas next time.

I gotta thank you again for all the advice! I LOVE them grub screws!!!!!

It's great to see how wild so much of California remains. I'm enjoying the COBDR-UTBDR report, too. Keep it coming!

Thank you, Tony! Seeing California (CO & UT) on a bike is amazing. I can't wait to get my own and get out there someday. :-)
