Met up with Chris & Chris at the usual time & place

Chris & Chris took BPL & I went on my own, with the plan to meet at Mill Creek

I actually took some time to look at the scenery this time

hadn't gone far when the bike was somehow no longer willing



I think I see the problem here......

The guys realized pretty quickly that I was no longer behind them, & came back for me




trailside repairs were competed....& we went on our way, I owe a big thanks to Chris & Chris

we made it to lunch, where we met up with these guys again, they weren't even that far behind us

trash!



Did a solo today on SCD/3n17 and lynx. Was good to get out and clear the mind. I needed that more then I realized. But I was a little shocked at all the trash on the side of the road on SCD/3n17!! Made me sad to see this beutiful mountain all trashed up!!!

Keep your eye out for a "clean up SCD" thread. As soon as I pick a day I'll drive the SCD/3n17 in my 4X4 with my son and do a trash collection. My thought was get some of you FF's to do the off shoots on bikes and bring the trash to SCD then I'll pick it up in the suv.

I too did a solo to SCD/BPL yesterday and noticed trash. I also saw three guys collecting dry yucca stalks in a pickup and trailer. Seems they had hundreds. What are they going to do with them?

We passed the same pickup & trailer with the yuccas in it on the ride, they had them laid out in the middle of the trail when we passed.
I thought to myself "those would make great didger's!"
As I know a hippie in Venice who makes and plays them, pretty darn well too!

Ahh...now it all makes sense. I heard Senor Punk made a pit stop to my garage, now I know "the rest of the story".

You boys play nice now and keep the carnage to a minimum.
