Camp, food, beer was all excellent. The darling camp host lady sent us down to Riverkern Market which has a kitchen and guaranteed "grease" and not "yuppy food". Turned out to be excellent as we went there three times! Best biscuits and gravy I've had in a long time!

I'll post some pics later but Kimboy's pics are far superior! I think you are now the designated photographer! Somehow I ended up in about half of your pictures?!?
I second that Dave, looking forward to next year. !!!

Top of Cannell


Met Nate and Justin back at camp. Rode up Cannell again, started snowing at top. Decided to alter foot peg and my left toes on way back down. Tech 7's saved the toes not the peg.

Not the red rocket but the orange rocket???

Mike and the 530


Woke up Sat morning to this

And this....

Day two. Kern river trail


Found the trail head finally...


over the rocks comes Martin



Hwy on the left, river at the bottom, and the trail goes over and around, and down, never ending bliss

Almost half way on Kern!?


She made me work on the single track. Steep learning curve, but totally worth every minute.


All this single track. Its in the background


Bird fishing in the river on Sun morning




Short ride on Sun morning. Perry said it was a shorter way....mileage yes, time no.



Mike never looked at the rock climb, just go. He bunny hopped the top crack too. made it look easy.


End of our turn around point for Sun ride.


No one got too badly hurt in the group, no major damage, and some of us even won some free crap and some lube!!! Great ride guys! And thanks for driving Greg!

Great Pics! Thanks for sharing Matt. I can't wait to see the videos.

The trails up there look spectacular, how did the DR handle them?

Here's my pics from Warped X.

Gassing up in Bakersfield Friday morning.



Setting up camp in the rain!


Lower part of Cannell Trail.


Getting stopped by the "No motorized vehicles" on a the Cannell Meadows trail up on top.


Looking down Cannell near the top.


Near the middle of Cannell.


Looking out at Lake Isabella, middle of Cannell.


A little trail spur we found on Cannell. I think this was Kimboy's one and only crash on the DR!


More Cannell


The worst switchback on Cannell.


Looking back up Cannell at the switchbacks. I think you can see Kimboy at the top. Not sure, he would just be a dot!


Kern Canyon Trail, near the end. Conditions were epic from the previous night's rain!


Break at the Freeway bridge.
