NO Angst

OK - we're still working on gathering all the images. Will have it together soon but in the meantime . . . 7 days, 1311.6 mi total, 1 flat, several get offs, lots of bikes missing corners and plowing off route into sage, no injuries, many hilarious jokes, great people, one of every kind of DS bike (several KTMs though), a ton of new tracks discovered, lots of gates to open and close, 4 different hot springs, wild horses, burros, a badger, antelope, a weasel, many birds, snakes and a blue-billed duck. up to 10 bikes at one time but in the end, only 2 of us back to my place. we did 350 mi. the first day with no camping gear, about 12 hours and we figured the bikes were actually running over 9 hours.

Wish I could figure out the apple/smugmug/advrider connection but until then . . .

sorry, I'll try to get this posted correctly 'cause I've written a bunch already.
Woohoo! PICS!

Man. A lot of that stuff looks familiar . I really wish I could have made it over there... maybe next year if you do it.
*cough*hint*cough*

Can't wait to read your writeup!

Some of those photos look like the Pueblo Mountains in SE Oregon, NW Nevada.

Yep. not to answer questions for wachs or anything, but hopefully if I do he'll have more time to work on his report

It's south central Oregon around Fields and the Alvord Desert/Steens Mountain, then apparently down into northwest Nevada.
