A little meandering through Mayer and Breezy Pines found Rattlecan waiting for us at 5 Points.



And, without much ado, we hit the trail.



Regrouping at a gate.

We picked up Dustin on his 300 2 smokers up at 5 Points. He saw us riding by and chased us down.



Chillin at Palace Station, the gateway to Bodie Mine Road.

Rattlecan pinned under his KTM. I made him beg before I helped him out.



We stopped by this giant oak in the middle of an endless pasture. My camera started fogging up from getting wet...created some interesting effects.

We stopped and chatted with these ATV riders. At least they had helmets to go with their PBRs.



Minnehaha Mine.

Oldtimertc and I took a little side trip to check out if trail 213 is rideable... Technically, it's doable! But, not today.





I actually made it to this rock on my 950.



DirtyDog thought this would be a big bike friendly trail. From the 2008 Blessed Hell Ride.

A quick splash of gas and we're off.



Nothing but dust and traffic back to the trucks. Oldtimertc found that he lost an engine plug.



106 miles total today.
