I have added two n00bs rides to the ride sign up list, one of them the same as last year, the other something a little different. I will post up new GPX files to Lost website soon, the first Cabin ride is already on there, same proposed route as last year though this year we will actually make it the cabins having a full day.

Someone save me a pair of commemorative glasses - looks like there's another spot open for the waiting list.
Sorry to hear that. I have taken the liberty of removing you from the ride of mine that you had signed up for. Heal up and make the next one!

Joel mentioned that he was trying to get his HAM radio license... so I thought I would mention that on March 16, 2013, at the Ruby's Diner in Redondo Beach, California there will be HAM radio testing put on by OAUSA.

Lookout City

You get there from Panamint Valley, but from Darwin, not that I have ridden, to the southwest of Lookout Mountain is China Lakes and restricted area, Looking on Google earth there's a wash that leads up and over the range from Lookout but might go into China Lake. There might be a way, but it won't be easy, might not be possible to get bike through there and without riding it first I wouldn't lead anyone in there.

There is however a very small, very narrow knarly looking single track donkey trail that drops down into Panamint near Minietta Cabin from Lookout, but last time I was there I wasn't on a bike I would take down it.
If any experienced riders want to give it a go to see if it's possible to ride thursday AM or sunday AM let me know. It's very narrow, tight switchbacks with 1-2 thousand foot almost vertical drops though off the 1-2 foot wide trail and unknown where it goes... It goes down into a wash though so how hard can it be.


best viewed in Google earth to get an idea of the vertical nature of the "trail".
