My apologies, but I am terrible for remembering names.... even my own.



Just wondering whose KLR rim this was, but, more importantly, wanting to know how much air pressure you were running when this happened?

I rode Scott P's "gentle" ride on Saturday, and hit some pretty rough, rocky stuff along the way. I had my tires aired down to about 25psi, but tires, tubes, and rims seemed to handle it okay.

Made it home a little while ago, and now I'm busy downloading pictures a video; it'll take me a while to go through it all, upload to photo hosting websites, and then post up on here (all while finishing my last week at my current job and packing up to move next weekend) but I'll post them up here eventually, little by little.

However, I just wanted to add my great appreciation to our wonderful host & hostess for another fantastic weekend of comraderie , riding , fine dining , and general awesomeness (is that last one a word!? ). Thanks also to all our fantastic ride leader; somehow you always manage to through in some new trails & roads that we haven't ridden before! See y'all at the next one!

Another Inmate Home Safe

I wanted to thank everyone who showed... another successful event with no injuries admitted or vehicle and trailer recovery implemented (mica - you don't count.)

Special shout to Kevin, Rhonda, and Dixie - Thank you for your incredible hospitality, food, and beer while opening your home to all of us FFs. Please come visit SMIBville so Scott, Mike, and I can return the favor.

Also, for those of you who pledged to the King George Relay for Life, we raised $1,300 .

If you haven't received your stickers yet, they are on the way. God Bless and can't wait until our next camp out adventure.

Damn sorry I missed the camp out, pig, beer and all. Looks like you guys had a great weekend with perfect weather.

Also bummed that I missed your visit.



My weekend did not go so well. Problem after problem that ended in the grand finale of my pull behind mower catching fire. Still not sure what happened, it wasn't even running when it started to burn.

Brian, sorry about the mower. Also sorry you missed the "event." Several folks asked where you were.

Thanks Guy, I had fully planned to get over there for at least a day.

Good news is the engine still turns. Might be able to get it going again with just a new ignition coil and some new rope for the starter.

Tank is deformed but no holes, air filter cover is toast but I can probably fashion something that will work.

Worst part is that I sold a 14.5 HP Briggs motor with electric start less than a week ago. Probably would have bolted right on.

Those were my gloves, I picked them up before I headed out on Sunday. Thanks for putting them where I could see them. I left a camp chair around the fire pit... H14 and Campcook, should you find an extra chair in the pile it would be mine.

Great weekend with you all, thanks K&R for hosting, thanks everybody else for letting me follow you around some of the best roads and trails ever.

HUGE thanks to Kevin and Miss Rhonda for the amazing food and hospitality Even though I didn't get to ride with anyone it was still the highlight of the weekend. Thanks also to everyone else for being great to hang out with - there were definitely some very interesting conversations going on around that fire.

I hope to get to ride with you folks soon. I need to get out there a lot more (I know I keep saying that...eventually it'll turn into reality though )
