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.

Mendocino NF up north is probably the best. Panoche Valley to the south used to be better when Clear Creek was fully open. The Sierras are a long way east for a day trip; along the coast the "Lost Coast" is a long ways north, but the Coast Ridge Roads off of Nacimiento-Fergusson Rd (Ft. Hunter-Liggett) and such are great. I hear there are great scenic camp spots off of it too, or try to get a spot at Kirk Creek Campground, at Hwy 1.

If you want to ride further in a day, Carrizo Plain is a great trip (101 - Hollister - Hwy 25 - Hwy 198 - Parkfield Grade - Cholame Road - Bitterwater Rd - Soda Lake Rd).

Hey guys, just got my WRR here and looking for some dirt roads! Took the bike to Metcalf Moto park this past weekend but it was kinda small. Looking for something more cross-country and scenic. Any suggestions between SF and San Jose perhaps up in the Santa Cruz hills?
