Yall gotta change yer sotnf sales pitch to something like
"Come ride with us, and strap this saw on yer bike, ya know just in case."

I get to ride once a month at best and it comes down to trail maint or riding. But if you made it sound like 90% riding 10% maint I could convince myself. :p

Looks like a good time, prolly about time I get out and lend a hand.

Mike, you know you are always welcome, better get the 530 in shape though, that 950 won't work in Sequoia.

Hah... the 530 runs. I plan on truck n trailer riding it just as is for a while yet. I just wouldnt want to push it on any 120+ mile one way desert treks.

The 950 gets a top end before the 530 will :p

Sequoia ride 1-26-2014

I took a little ride in Sequoia yesterday, knobbies on asphalt up to just below Moro rock. The 450 had been sitting and needs to be ridden.

Check out the new Moose carbon fiber pipe guard and Seat Concepts seat. Man I hate to take this virgin into the rocks... But soon I will.

Tunnel rock is now closed to four wheeled vehicles...

Crappy air quality today

The mighty 450 is running great! I can't wait to take it to the Sequoia rocks!

soda fire

was there fri sat w/wife!
was alittle smoke Saturday morning


The Soda Fire burning in the Golden Trout Wilderness in Sequoia National Forest continued its spread towards the west over the weekend and grew to 1132 acres. Fire behavior continues to be of low to moderate intensity and largely confined to surface and ground fuels. No tree torching has been observed.
Fire officials will continue to monitor the fire’s behavior and movement from a helicopter. With steep terrain with no road access no structures with immediate threat from the fire and anticipated growth there is not a need to insert ground resources and risk injuries to firefighters. Wet pockets of fuel on the ground will continue to smolder and emit smoke which will likely drift down into the canyons at night. Nearby communities should expect to smell smoke from the Soda Fire.
Smoke from wildfires can pose health concerns for the public. Residents are encouraged to visit the “Protect Yourself from Smoke” website for smoke protection information at www.cdc.gov/Features/Wildfires/


Basic Information

Incident Type Wildfire
Cause Undetermined
Location 20 miles east of Springville, CA
Incident Commander Ron Salazar Brenda Diaz-t

Current Situation

Total Personnel 20
Size 1,132 acres
Fuels Involved Timber and some brush
Fire Behavior Fire growth slowly continues, mostly on the west side of the fire.
Significant Events The fire was monitored by air. Recon and mapping missions were completed for updating incident intelligence.

Outlook

Planned Actions Continue to monitor the fire behavior by air.
Growth Potential Moderate
Terrain Difficulty Extreme
Remarks Fire continues to grow to the west through surface and ground fuels. Officials anticipate additional growth until we get precipitation, hopefully soon. The fire is surrounded by either patchy snow and more open areas to the north, south, east, and west.



sorry bout my previous post- after posting it would not allow me to edit OR nuke-FIXED

Nice fix Scotty! you can have your copy & paste buttons back.

This sounds like a "good" fire, burn off the ground fuels without torching trees.

ahh, thanks, was hoping I got them back soon, it must be the lack of riding (6 weeks now)

on a sad note:

the El Jacalito Resturant in Kernville is gone went out of business they said
one less place to eat now

also Ewings on the Kern had a for sale sign out- also closed

they better get that damn DAM started/finished soon before we loose the whole place
