Cooking utensil request

Hey does anybody have a pizza stone they can bring up.
We'll need it Thursday night. I have one but we need two.

If not I'll go buy another.

I've got no stone, but do you want black or green sliced olives for the pizza? I have the olive hook up.

Ride Idea

Bear Creek, Hot Springs and Lookout Loop, approximately 70 miles

A = Fuller Grove Group Campground: 39.439607,-122.969306
B = Forest Route M10/18N01/Bear Creek Rd: 39.304019,-122.933407
C = Bear Creek Crossing/Rice Fork: 39.32726,-122.871075
D = Hot Spring: 39.290053,-122.82114
E = High Glade Lookout, elevation 4843’: 39.2096109, -122.8111038
F = Pine Mountain Lookout, elevation 4400’: 39.367009,-123.020398
G = Fuller Grove Group Campground: 39.439607,-122.969306

Road conditions: here.

Caveats
Bear Creek/Rice Fork cossing can be challenging. Polarized sunglasses help you see beneath the surface of the water to choose your best line.
The hot spring is on private property, but you may be able to see it from the forest road.
Lookouts are below 5k', but still may not be accessible due to snow; this route will get you close, though.

Can some early birds pre-ride this with a bold n00b ride in mind? Thanks!

Olives would be great! For pizza and snacking.

Thanks.

Hey Dean - how's the class? I'm back on the street bike... dirt might be more of a challenge.

Just found out I'm getting back surgery next Friday. We're out. Oh goodie.

At least this will sort it out- probably for good.

I think its a compromise. Yes, you miss mendo, but you will be able to function.

No worries, I'll come over next weekend to keep the battery on your KTM charged

Yup, that wins... All I did was swamp 2 different bikes owned by the same inmate on the same water crossing... Both engines had water in the motors. We had to remove the plugs and kick out the water of both. The inmate who owned the bikes had lots of practice prior to my swamping so getting the water out did not take very long...

Hopefully, my GSA will take care of me or maybe I'll just skip water altogether...

I just made payment for my wife, so please add my +1 to the group camp list. Folks, I need your help... I'm trying to talk her into riding, not scare her away

See you all soon!

Don't worry, Scott. Lots of nice fire roads in Mendo (not like the salt tram...) Other folks may be riding 2-up again this year.

See you next week.

There are lots of very easy dirt roads to ride there. I had a blast riding there until the water crossings... I could have walked the bike across and not had an issue... Prolly should have...

It's really a bummer we can't make it as msbianca is a great lady to talk to about that. Despite the fact that she is really good as a street rider, she has decided that although for purposes of ease, we'll keep a plated bike for her, she is more comfortable doing trails as the cagers are a bit too spooky any longer.

But anyway, find out what her fears are and I'm certain this crew can help her out. Lots of folks to pick up a downed bike, lots of experience to help get going, and a laid back attitude make it perfect for her to feel comfy.
