Perry,

If you stage near Auberry & 168 you will still have about 20 miles to get to northfork, but you will get to ride powerhouse rd. If you don't want to ride all that pavement I'm sure you guys can park at my friend Cliff's house just outside of Northfork..........

Auberry&168 works for me, 9-930 @ the Shell station it is...
If its just me, I might just ride the 640 from Visalia, Jack is a maybe.
If I do ride from Visalia, I'll meet up with JP at his house...

What Jp said. I first thought you were riding the whole way up Perry. Figured on a meeting spot between Clovis and auberry. It's a lot of slab. Trailer does change things. I can meet you guys between Clovis area to Prather so we can ride up to northfork. I didn't want force you into riding a ton of slab solo. More fun together.

Got your text Perry. Wasn't sure what it was at first as nothing came through. Then I noticed an attachment that my phone cant open so I forwarded it to my email & saved the file to my desktop. Google says its a "Dropped Pin", that is some sort of mapping software I guess. Couldn't open the file on my PC so I dragged it into a Post Script editor to see the "code" subsequently finding a google map address in the text which I copied & plugged into my web browser.
