Easter Sunday Mt. Tam Sunrise Ride ...

Hey BAARCers,

We're meeting at the DNA Lounge at around 4am on
Easter Sunday morning, 4/20/14, for the traditional
Easter Sunday Sunrise Ride ...

Motorcycle people have been riding up Mt. Tam
since the 1950s on Easter Sunday ... To watch the sunrise ...

Meet at Tam Junction around 5 am, sunrise around 6:30 am ...

We'll see if the gates are unlocked for us this year ...



see you in the parking lot,
-- SFMCjohn

Super crappy. It didn't look that bad in the Facebook post I saw. But hey, Mexican drugs sound cool.

I was riding up PCH from spending the week with my nephews down in Ventura and ran into Paul and Jill on my way up. We passed each other, each going around 70mph, and waved. I stopped about 10 seconds later, realizing it was probably Paul. What a coincidence!

I took the 33 through Ojai and then 166 West, that's the first time I'd done that route. It was pretty nice, seemed to go just about as fast as just going straight on the 101.

Hey 1brunoj,

Super crowded holiday weekend in the campground ... we wound up
camping in the Madrone cul-de-sac ...


Our tent slum ...

We did find a few BAARCers:



woodsxr and Brenda ...

and I hear calioutdoors247 showed up on Saturday night in time for
a steak dinner and quality campfire time ...


A view of the tent slum ... I got the last fire-ring in Madrone on Friday
around 3pm, in a day use area in the center of the turn-around ...
no signs about no camping, so we had to move our tents out of the corral
when the lady ranger chased us out ... We re-set our tents along the road,
and the rangers said we could use the day use area for a campfire and meals,
just no camping ...

We've been used to rolling into Madrone on a Friday and having no trouble finding
three or four empty campsites together in Madrone, but not this weekend!


AJ, the birthday boy on his KTM ... 14 years old this week,
riding since he was five ...



We had a couple of adventure bikes with 80/20 tires ... No problem ...
This was a nice 90,000 mile GSA ...



Out riding ... the campground were crowded, but the trails were fine ...



and the campfire ...

So, the next dual-sport rides for me are:
The Mendo Rally, 4/30 - 5/5
The Sheetiron, 5/16-18
The Funduro, 5/30-6/1

Anyone else planning on any of these
dual-sport/adventure rides?

Be cool to say "hey" to some BAARCers!

see you out there,
-- SFMCjohn
