Or you can stop by REI and get a nice waterproof Mendo Natl Forest map that has all the roads and the trails for like $16.95- it's a great map.
Last time we were at Pillsbury a nice ranger type lady came by our camp and gave us one.

Laugh Morocco ...

Hey BAARCers,

It turns out you can get on a jet plane at SFO direct to
Paris and transfer to a plane to Marrakech, rent a bike
and go riding ...



So, that's what we did ...



Plunging down to the village of Sour, in
the Haute Atlas ...

We did a ten day loop south of Marrakech and
didn't see a fence, or a gate, or a "no trespassing"
sign ...

With an old guide book and a 1:1,000,000 map
and a little French, we had a blast ... can't wait
to go back and ride and explore some more ...

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Hi HWD,
You'd love Morocco ... It's like Baja, only with real coffee! Ha.



We rented scooters too, to tool around Marrakech ...
Fully half the vehicles in the city are motos ... lots of fun riding around
with the moped nation in North Africa ...

Everyone knew we were tourists of course (how does one look more rediculous in a 'Stich? Add your SOA vest! ) but no one guessed we were from the USA, which was kind of nice ...



Heading up to Asni and Imlil ...


Here's the bikes we rented ... About $65/day ...
Basically a big street bike with a 19" front tire ...

OK, we're still in Morocco ... Just had to post to get us off page three ... imagine we'll see some Baja pics soon ...

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Reminds me of South Park Canyon in the Panamints except with a city at the bottom of the hill.

Hi misadventure!
Ha ... we'll see about a slide show ... best I can do to post here, almost!

OK, last one ... the bivouac at Erg L'Houdi ... six km of sand on those pigs at the edge of the Sahara ... Berber Wiskey (tea) is our reward:



see you around the campfire,

Most EXCELLENT John!!! I can't wait for your whole report & photos!

Myself & a few friends are heading down to Keyesville after Christmas, and Bay of L.A. at the end of March.
