What time Saturday morning would you be heading out from Kernville?

Probably really early, I think it's only about 25 miles to KM from there, but they're not fast miles (for me anyway)

I didn't like the idea of those mountain roads in the dark, and having to set up my tent at midnite, and I have a place to stay in Kernville

I expect to leave Pasadena area by 7pm

I'm pretty positive that I will not be ready to go by the time I'd need to meet up with you leaving Pasadena, but I could prolly meet up with you early Saturday morning and ride up the rest of the way from Kernville to the camping area... If you want, pm me and I'll give you my number - we can make arrangements...

Kathy, it's closer to 50 miles from Kernville to KM, and a much nicer ride by day!

Either way, yes, much better ride by day.....

Google maps gave me the mileage, probably "as the crow flies"

I'll prolly leave about 3 am from south orange county. My bike is ready, I just need to lash on my bag, gas up, and take a nap.

My dogs are at the kennel for the weekend, so they are having a sort of a campout too...
