Ha! I made it in two pics!
It was my first event, and VERY fun. The Beast held it's own quite well, and only went down when I picked a bad line, got nervous and target fixated.
I probably should have stuck around for the ending festivities, but I was in camp at 1430 and only live 25 mins away.... I chose home.
Thanks to all of you who put this event on, and thanks to the PSER's.

Went off to the Shelton Valley DS Event in Washington State yesterday – It was an awesome ride with something for everyone from tight trails to scenic forest service roads. The route was approx 130 miles and offered some wonderful views of the Olympic Mt range. If you were unable to make this years ride - put it down on your calendars for next year, as it will surely be one not to miss!

This was my first organized ride and this event rocked, the trails were clearly marked and the people were the best.
I'm really looking forward to the pics because all I had was my camera phone and it just doesn't do the job.

This was also my first "roll-chart" event. What a great time! I only wish there had been time to try the second two "trail" routes- especially after I heard they were a bit wider than the first one! It was a bit of work to get the cylinders between stumps once or twice...
I was having too much fun to stop and take many photos. Thanks to Dorian and all the PSER's! Excellent event! I hope to do it again next year!

Wow! What a great day! Many thanks to the PSERs for putting on a terrific event. It was a ton of fun. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with other dual sport/adventure riders. I am new to this arena and I am quickly finding that everyone seems to be just terrific people.
I've got pics up at my smugmug page so check them out. http://mrudy.smugmug.com/gallery/3091422/1/168899452
Here's one of my favs. Took a pic of robdogg roosting the big 9-fity through one of the water crossings.

Post event effluvia
Firstly, thanks to all for coming and to the businesses that stepped-up with support and prizes! (can I name them here?) It was great to finally meet some of you in person. And jeez we got lucky with the terrific weather! If the weather would have been anywhere close to what the previous weekend's had been (or Wednesday & Thursday for that matter), well, I shudder to think...
Anyway, I took a few pics on Saturday evening of the So. Sound BMW and Friends fast-growing "tent city" and a couple at lunch.
Luca whippin' up some chow while Aaron looks longingly at something - I think a new 650X-Challenge?
Wayne happily unpacking his gear while an admirer checks out his well set-up GS1200.
Ranjan - secretly wondering if he should've bought TKC's instead of those bar risers..
Gabriele and his new ride - a 9fiddy SE!
These guys need to learn to relax
Frank talking to Creeper about the virtues of Sherco ownership while Ralph contemplates what he might encounter riding sweep.
Derek and Tommy on hungry adventure riders: "No worries, we can handle it!"
L to R: Wayne, Brendan and Aaron's big iron. The first trail section is wider now thanks to these guys! What a bunch of animals! The sweep riders wondered what happened out there. Bark was scraped off of stumps plenty wide for "regular" bikes to pass thru, and a few were augered right out of the ground!
All I can say is those big Beemers were made for guys like these - and vice versa.
