Great seeing lots of faces from last year and meeting some new guys.

Scott, Tanya, Cookie and all the rest made this event even better than last year!

Kudos to OLeary for leading our group and keeping a motley crew on track.

Thanks from the two Coonasses from Louisiana for having us.

Just wanted to let everyone know how much I enjoyed this event. It has been over 30 years since I was on a dirt bike and recently bought a 2009 DR650 to do the TAT next month. Came accross this event and thought it would be a good test for me and the bike. Thanks to Tim for letting me join his "Blue" group and Bob for riding sweep behind me in case I fell or got lost, luckily that didn't happen. Also thanks to Jim from Kansas for all the info on my bike and also the words of encouragement from all three guys!. I had never made a water crossing like we did and the bike stalled half way accross, so I put my feet down and filled both boots with water, so who ever recommended bringing extra socks, thank you!
Tom, Little Rock

P.S. Check out www.jimbronson.com look under Bronson's garage and select Tom's bike to read my first ever ride reports to Alaska and Key west on my NT700...if you're interested.

Thanks to Scotty for another great event. This is always one of the highlights of my year and this one didn't disappoint. Also thanks to our leader O'Leary and rest of my Blues Brothers that hung in there and road all of Saturday. We started at 8am and finished just as it was getting dark at 8pm. It may have been the best one day of riding in my life!!

Great weekend. I learned a lot from Blue Team and had a great time doing it. Those routes were a good mix of pucker factor and "holy cow" scenery.

Unless he was the guy who hacked off his evil left testicle. Then we WERE actually talking about him around the campfire …

Awesome time.

Very nice meeting everyone and had a great time. First time riding in that part of the country and first water crossing.
Thanks to Scotty for putting on such an awesome event and special thanks to O'Leary for staying back with me on Sunday getting my front brake sorted. Dumped it 3 times at practically zero speed on pavement and zero times on the trail.
Guess its time to order the low seat. See everyone next year!
