Thanks y'all



Berdoo Canyon Road eventually spit me back out into "civilization"

Swung into Hardee's for some fat pills and off for more riding

Off of Box Canyon road I found some OHV trails



I'll do the green stuff on this beast, blue is pushing it and to black diamond

Took it all the East to Chiraco Summit

Back into the park via Cotton Wood Canyon, I set out for Old Dale Road

Sorry, I have only one wheel drive





Plan was to take it all the way to Route 62...25 miles one way



Last time I was out this way I was in my 4x4 with wife and kiddo plus two dogs

We turned around as things got hairy right around where this picture was taken



Glad we did because it only got steeper and rougher the farther I went, big loose rocks and high drops to the sides of the road There were times I doubted my sanity (intelligence) for going for this solo

I grew up in northern California. I really do miss it. You aren't helping Chris!

BTW, you gave me gps tracks a few years ago when you still lived back east and they were awesome, I don't know if I ever thanked you. Never forget Public Road 13 in Davis, WV!

This is the best way to get into the park...by the time you see this sign you will have had one heck of a ride through the sand and rocky ascents!

Didn't think all that much of this Dodge Durango on top of the first section of climbing, but my heart sank when I read the note posted on the dash



That's a 14 mile hump through the desert without much water and then still you are only to the pavement with the hope a car will pass by

The date stamp was 2 days ago...a silent prayer and a report to the first ranger I saw

This could have been me a couple months ago...made me think how my wife and I need to be prepared to go afoot when we are out exploring, we carry around 7 gallons of water, food and emergency supplies, but I admit sometimes we leave the packs and camelbacks home if we don't plan to hike...now, we plan for the unplanned hike.

Off the high ground and toward paved ways I ran into a little bit of sand

It was like riding a jetski at times , a bucking bronco at others and every now and then a motorcycle

Good news is their is only 15 miles of it

Thought your name looked familiar! I remember that area fondly, West By God Virginia is some of the best ADV riding in the country and perhaps the world, had lots of good times out that way. Thanks for bringing my mind back and your welcome!

The BMW on the left is for sale, cheap!



Camshaft is still good



Interior may need a shampooing



Looking at this burned up hulk, my mind can't help but wander as it develops a crazy tale of drugs, guns, hookers, Vegas, ........

or maybe it was simple recall defect

or a car theft, drunken, wild ride through the desert that ended in a burning celebration of all things wild.....

Glad to report that yes, I talked with the Rangers when I was re-entering the park and they knew about the breakdown. The folks had gotten out alright, although a bit dehydrated they were fine.
