Thumb 2013 Plumas Circumnavigator DS

After getting rained out of a Colorado adventure and an Oregon DS ride I tried something a little closer to home and found just what I was looking for.

There was drama in the camp as this was a GPS only ride and my GPS would not upload the route. This misfortune of mine was soon to be realized as a gift. One of the club's faithful members; Bart, took it upon himself to babysit me for the entire three days journey. This is Barts' sixth time on this dual sport and he is a veteran GPS guru. He made this three day; 400 mile tour through the woods a total pleasure and with the weather cooperating the way it did made it the most enjoyable and epic ride of the year.
The first day was a little dusty; but that evening it rained just enough to make things perfect. This just doesn't happen like this often. It was one of those one in ten years weather opportunity.

I like to stop and take pictures now and then. This gave Bart a chance to leave me in his dust. There were many lost photo ops. Mainly because I was either having too much fun or I was trying too hard to keep up with Bart.

Mark; riding the Beta. He joined Bart and I on the second day. His riding buddy; John, hurt his hand during a slight high side spill. He decided to call it quits and rejoin the group at meal and motel stops. Mark and I had it easy;navigation wise. "Just follow Bart". Bart had blue tooth navigation turn by turn; he always knew what was just ahead.
