Rule change:

It used to be that whenever Camelbaks were removed, they had to be leaned against front wheels.



That only works if you're rolling forward. Backing out... this is what happens.

New rule: Whenever removed, the Camelbak waist belt must be clipped onto some part of the bike.

Sorry, Mr. Happy Puppet.

Underway

the trees were giving back their carbon atoms to the atmosphere in a controlled and well-behaved manner;



I don't know why, but I find this photo a little sexy...



I think we stopped for her to defleece... maybe it's the mud caked on the visor... or else the fingernail polish?

We were following tracks

laid down by boney at GPSXchange.com, and some others by some other FF's and I like to give credit where credit is due, but their names are lost in the sands of time, I'm mortified to report.



I think he had ridden this route in '06,



and while it was mighty tasty riding,



We weren't able to, um, ride the exact route that he did.

(got around that one)...



but was stopped by this:



but the go-arounds were fairly straight forward,



and we carried on, with a little re-routing.



We were just playing... having a ball.

Our next re-route attempt



caught us a road that looked like it would go through... it had some recent tire tracks, a little wider, etc.



and, in fact, it did.

Even though

there was more water,



we were descending into more Great Basin-like elevations and terrain...



No matter... still fun

Our nice two-track



deteriorated quite a bit...



I hear over the squawk-box, "Who routed this?"



"I did, why?"



"Who the frick do yo think you are??? SAM??"



"Not bad, if I do say so myself"

Once we got down

to the valley, things settled a bit,



I mean, this was just primo dual-sport riding,





"No, don't worry... I'll get this gate"

(I get every gate, actually)

It looked like a

green lake up ahead...



as we got closer, we saw a "Jesus-cow" walking on the water...



This was Horse Lake... so, that must be a... horse?

A quick stop

at the Susanville chamber of commerce (and Parks and Recreation headquarters)



gave us the 411 regarding the best B&B in town, (which we spared from turning into a super-fund site since we were so dirty), and the best restaurant in town... the Sage Hen; with "a new French chef, who cooked authentic French cuisine using local ingredients and has really turned the place into a destination," according to the clerk.

So, follow our logic: the promise of a good dinner. therefore wine. therefore no motor-bikey. no taxi cabby here either. therefore, we must find a motel within walking distance to the restaurant!

Makes sense to me.

We found the restaurant

(way on the other side of town from the B&B, btw), and pulled into a quaint-looking mom & pop type motel, the Apple Inn, which we quickly pulled out of when we saw what looked like (unconfirmed... just bad vibes) a drug deal going down.

Across the street, and down a ways was a Best Western, and we got ourselves a real, honest-to-goodness motel room. We felt so civilized.

We peeled off our riding gear, and de-bugged: not sure how we picked up so many passengers...

LDF's:



also LDF's:



Mine:



these were all between skin & base layer... yeck .
