Can you say cha-ching? Who four wheels a land rover with a snorkel?

good answer. plus seeing as how the trail / fire road is blm, i don't believe it is regulated by speed limits and accident causation clauses, so you would have lost that law suit and been the second to leave in a chopper to boot.

So as I mentioned before, I was very late Saturday. The group ride was pretty much a solo run for me. I ran into just about everyone that did the Bradshaw at some point (unless they had already been removed from the trail via helo!)
Some folks I recognized some I didn't.



It was a beautiful day for a ride and I was groovin' on it hard.







I try not to ride dirt roads much but I had a blast! The scenery and water crossings were grade A adventure riding stuff. From the Ranch Without Rice and back, it was a 335mile day for me. 70% dirt.

Sunday morning I returned to Camp Gearheart and hooked up with a crew that enjoys "shreadin' the gnarl", and that's just what we did! More later...

BLM has (or had) a blanket 45 mph limit. Riceless950 can tell you stories of being run off the dirt roads in that area by a local (who shall remain nameless - a good guy but went a little crazy when he got behind the wheel) sorting out his Pro class Baja truck. BLM got so many complaints that they went out and got him on radar - legend has it the reading was 100+ mph.

It would have been too strange to have been there when he landed.

+10000!

Doug came into the ER a couple of times to check on me before they left, real classy guy.
Don't remember talking to Anne much, guess she was busy flying the bird. Fine with me. Once they cut off all my riding gear, I may have been too much of a distraction for her.

Hope I get to buy them a burger with JONZ one of these days soon.

These folks deserve our kudos, they rarely get to roll on something pleasant.

Yep, a distraction kind of like ipecac syrup.

I had to look ipecac in the dictionary, and the description also contained a picture
