doing Gerlach on the way home ...

I will be on infant duty - but will be there in spirit! Are you going to Stevens Camp? It's not hunting season, so it should be open.

m0t0_ryder, SFMCJohn and my friend Scott on Twenty Mile outside Fort Bidwell. We were en route to Hart Mountain.





m0t0_ryder on the move.

x2 to all that! Fun having lunch in Adel with you,
and thanks for the cool rally steeker ...

... got some pics:



... sweet Toecutter-furnished rally sticker ...

... so I usually kill myself getting to these rallies
trying to find as much dirt on the way there, and
then taking it easy for the couple of days of the event ...









... I left for the End of Pavement Rally on Wednesday after putting
in an eight-hour shift at work with no firm idea how far down
the road I'd get ... wound up finding a camp spot on Hogsback Road, east of Red Bluff
and south of Hwy 36 ... had a nice view of Mt. Lassen ...



... FH22 running east from Old Station ...



... Grasshopper Road ...



... Grasshopper Valley full of water ... east of Hwy 139 and north of Eagle Lake ...



... be careful of blind turns, ha ...

... the pics above are from
Thursday where I spent 11 hours on the
KLR exploring my way
to Cedarville on
mostly dirt fire roads ... got lost, rode in circles,
got turned around by snow ...



... here's a zoom in map link, omitting my circles ...





... made it! ... the gang around the campfire ...



... on Friday we headed over to Adel for lunch ...



... two wheel tramp, in action on the mighty DR 650 ...



... Surprise Valley, north of Cedarville ...



... m0t0_ryder contemplates the Surprise Valley ...





... lunch at the Adel Store ... it was a cold, blustery day ...



... actual cowboys in this part of the world ...



Road 34 in Nevada on the way home ...
warming up and waiting for rain showers to
pass on by ... did some slabbing on the way
home, a day early, on Saturday ... 400 miles
in about eight hours capped off with lane-splitting
starting in Davis ...

... big "thanks" to two wheel tramp for
getting me off the sofa, and to m0t0_ryder
for all the coffee ...

Ah shit this already happened. Looks like a great time, except maybe SFMCjohn, who went down the dreaded Hogsback Road!

There is always Weaverville though...

ha, yes, I got to go _up_ Hogsback ... it was dreadful!

... lotsa rocks, huge pot hole-ponds (dry thank goodnesss),
about 1,000,000 cows on the lower
half and had to ride right by two scary looking bulls ...





... cowboys on Hogsback and another Lassen view ...

... kinda the cool thing about TWT's rallies,
you get to explore ... Hogsback was just
a line on my AAA map ... what a surprise ...
definitely couldn't get my Toyota Carolla through there ...
"impassible in inclement weather" ...

... on the up-side, I did see one end of a road that
looks like it goes past the Ishi Wilderness on the east side ...

A minor obstruction. No we didn't get past this one, but we did on another the same size thanks to m0t0_ryder blazing a trail - (I forgot to take pictures, but I've got some video to post later) That's Distant thunder and Jon from ADV - can't remember Jon's inmate name



Lunch in Adel with Cootz, SFMCJohn, Toecutter, myself, m0t0_ryder & outjustout



Toecutter sneaking back into California after trying to smuggle a 'cow needle' in from Oregon.


Said 'cow needle' that quickly deflated his brand new Motoz rear.


Some evening shenannigans
