We stayed North of Dove springs as jawbone was completely packed. Very happy we went North, camp site was perfect with a track the little ones could burn gas on while the adults could watch with cold ones in hand
Place was busy but I never felt it was unsafe.

I see a toy hauler in my near future, never been there and we all had a blast, even the non riding soccer moms.

I only have a handful of pics that I will ad as soon as I find them.

Never ran into Martin... I was looking too.

Ready to go back

If the DRZ has any semblance of a modern suspension the XT won't be an upgrade. Although it is better than a dual shock XR250 and it has passed many a Husky 610 on the technical trails!

My mother is Karyn Neves her mother and father are Lillian and Carl Neves.
My wife's mother is Diane Silva and her father was Frank Silva.
Not sure what Neves but they bought my parents cabin in Shaver about 6 years ago. I believe they are farmers near my family's farm in Huron.

My wife is from the Costa/Coehlo side of the barn.
Joe and Adeline Coehlo were grandparents and Larry and Antoinette Stone were her parents. Stonehakers are also in the mix somehow. Ill ask what Silvas are in the mix.

How to survive Mondays:

Step 1: Make a strong cup of coffee.
Step 2: Render strong coffee extremely Irish ;)
Step 3: Put on your headphones & play music similar to the examples below.








Anyone plan on riding this Sunday? I have family obligations in San Jose on Saturday...

I rode the 950 for the first time since 2010. She's heavy... And Tall! Probably should have avoided the snow. Especially while riding solo.
I've been off bikes for way too long. I plan on changing that this season.
