I ran into h8chains at Means Dry Lake, on the way home from the Stoddard Wells ride. It was nice to meet him. The ride was fun. Thanks guys. Here are a few pics.

This must be why he's Bomber



Nasty little climb

Ooops! I missed everyone, waited at the corner for 30 minutes and didn't see anyone.



So I went and follow the power lines but didn't go far enough.



But good to hear that you guys had a good ride.

I scouted the area for like half an hour and didn't see any interesting trails or riders. Worried that if I ride alone and get hurt, I toof off and went to Johnson Valley.

This sign says a lot! All kinds of caliber are represented.




The road to Means Dry Lake (Johnson Valley). The lake is a motorhome mecca!



The dry lake is wide open and flat, but the trails leading outside were sandy and plenty of woop dee woops. The lake bed is perfect for noobies who wants to learn and train, and very GS friendly .





Who said it's a dry lake bed!



Another noobie mistake, following a tire track that it got so deep that my pegs got buried in the ground.

The exact spot where the meteor hit the lake and turned it dry.

By your first photo we we're just five minutes away up powerline road :(.

Had a great time meeting everyone and letting me tag along for my first ds ride. Luckily I brought my gps and it allowed me to take my daughter on the same ride (except the hills) down to slash x for a burger.

SP, next time bring a bigger trailer so I can spot it from a mile away.

If you have chance, bring the family to Means Dry Lake, it's perfect for noobs and advance riders as well. The lake bed is hard pack dirt, mostly flat, rocks almost non-existence, and plenty of camping space.

The only minus is there's no bathroom facility. For someone digging a hole, there's just no available cover within a half a mile.
