Please call Dave Tonkiss. He handles entries. His number is 818-257-1649. Be advised that refunds will be handled AFTER the ride. We are too busy now to take care of any refunds. Surely you'll understand that.

Sorry you're missing out on this year's ride. Follow the doctor's orders and get better.

I got a refund in 2010 when I broke my ankle a few weeks before the ride. There were no questions asked.

How is the trials tire in the sand? I have heard rave reviews for hard pack and rock but wondered about soft sand.

Here are two GREAT videos of LA-B-to-V. I highly suggest you watch them. Won't say why.

I'm the one in the yellow windbreaker that's interviewed the second day.

By the way, these guys started too late both days. Don't start late! You'll have a better chance of making Red Rock Canyon if you start at 6 a.m. the second day.

No need to give Dave a call, I'm handling the Online Registration. We'll get it resolved for you. :)

I've still got an extra bed in Palmdale and Vegas.

Just put together some tracks for getting home on Sunday and working on the bike.
Momma and Jr. left this morning for a week so all is calm here.

I'm starting to feel it...

Anyone interested in an ADV meet up at Brendan's Irish Pub at the Orleans Saturday ... before or after (or both) the awards ceremony?
