rickbt..... good man

There is parking on the east side of the gas station. I live out there, so when we split-up I will be going back that way.

Nice pics, thanks for posting them. Sorry I missed the ride.
I should be back down there around the first weekend in Nov, and able to stay for the rest of the month, should there be any other rides planned.

Question, Boomtown is referred to, I assume that's the Casino?

Conklin Camp Rat Ride

Well saturday turned out to be a fantastic day for a ride. Had a great time with a bunch of guys I'd never met before - thanks y'all!
Didn't get that many good pictures, but here's the best of 'em.
Next saturday sounds like fun, but will be at the plow again - maybe next time.


Who's idea was it to go up this dead end road any way? Made it to within 200 yards of Sardine Lookout, but gate was closed and patience was worn thin.

Take a right off of Beckwourth Genessee Road onto this nice paved road (well nice for a bit lol) and it takes ya right to the camp.

Rat pack in Conklin Park Camp.


The canyon downstream of Frenchman's Lake - gorgeous scenery!



My attempt at artsy picture... hmmm.

Great pictures, guys. The ride looks like it was fun. I was really looking forward to it, but ultimately couldn't make it (obviously!).

Would like to get in on it next week if it's happening again, though!

Hey Spoof how do you access the gps data? Do you have to be a member of that forum? I looked at your post there and several others and can't see a download link or anything to get the tracks.
Rookie guy with rookie question I'm sure, sorry.

Anyone up for a half day-ish ride this Saturday? 10/27
I'm breaking in a new motor and have some local gps routes for some fun challenging trails.

Mix of terrain and some single track.
Relaxed pace just really want to try out a new bike!
Gotta be home around 1ish

9:30 Boomtown
