The Half Bridge Creek crossing. Overall this isn't too bad as long as you don't bury yourself in the silty bottom creek bed. It is a bit tricky coming down the bank and getting up the other side, especially with the sand, but the trick is not spin too much in the water.

Jeff on the 950


Sean on the FE390



- Steve on the KTM450
- Sean for the 2nd time on the FE390. (I think he was enjoying it)
- Eddie on the WR250R
- Bobby on the TE450 goes straight in and sinks it.
- Ricky on the DRZ400 tries to take me out and then falls over
- After that I forget the camera is on while I walk over to go help Bobby get his bike unstuck.



I actually ran out of card room, so I missed all the other videos I took from the other bank. Sorry guys.

Here's the Dixion Trail Bridge that we hit on Day 1. There was a mud hole people were trying to avoid right before the bridge, but it was a bit scary watching them hit it at an angle and not realizing there are pretty big gaps on either side of this bridge! LOL




Just a short quick video of Steve coming across the Steal Beam Bridge on his 450.

I think that was the more challenging way to ride that section!

DrZ, Bill and I made it back safely. I made it home about 10am Monday after catching a few hours of sleep on the way back.

Sunday morning ride was awesome even after hitting the sack a bit late. We arrived in the storage parking lot not long after the others, we could tell the tracks were fresh, especially after the rain.

Tom is doing okay. He's sore and still recovering, but posting up over on BSB. He's ready to get back out there again.

Haha, you got my wife dancing on the light pole. At least that's what it looks like!

Top Box encounter on Day 1

Seems Tom on the Husky lost his box


Unfortunatley it was just over a hill


Seems Bobby Ginger couldn't get her slowed down without hitting Bill.


A bit dusty


Relaxing on the Square




BlueLghtning Dad to the rescue


End of a sandy road


Gravity challenged KLR


Gravity repelled (for now)




End of day one

Good job

Looks like you put together a real good time. Wish I could have made it, but I really needed to work Saturday. Plus I'm not to good with large groups, and you had about as many there as I expected. Glad to hear Tom is ok. The last time I saw him, he had crashed at HP on the outer loop on his Husky.
