New to the area, Kevin Schlegel asked about an intro trip so a small group of us went up toward Bill Moore today. Squishy brought the bling and led in his 4Runner, The BoomBoom brought the Bronco, a friend of his (sorry, forgot his name) in ZR-2 Blazer, Mtn Drew in his 4R and my 80. Kevin decided to ride along with me and leave his 80 parked. Mendocino made it to the gathering point but was experiencing a bit of a misfire after conferring with Justin he decided to head back home. (sorry Jeff didn't mean to leave you out :o)

Weather was spotty with a bit of rain in Downieville, then sun with rain/snow as we got higher. Sounds like we didn't get much further then the wagon group from a couple weeks ago. Hit a big drift where ATVs and perhaps 4x4 were going off trail. Justin and I both took a couple turns at the drift but it was just play time as it was too far across for a serious attempt. We turned back and tried another route but the weather took a bad turn and so we scooted out of there.

Fun was had by all. :D

It was nice to meet you Kevin, I'm sure we can find a seat for you next weekend if you want to ride along. Please post up some of your pics (I don't remember seeing any other cameras :o)

OK, I got the pics up on my profile. I can't figure out how to get them onto the clubs photo album. Seems as if I am not allowed or blocked from posting photos.:comp:

It was definitely a great time, thanks to Justin for leading! My buddy Greg had a blast wheelin his blazer for the first time. He ended up getting a flat on the way home around C470 and Chatfield, but we got it changed quickly and beat his dad home who had gone out looking for us.

Yup, that was me. I was sitting in the burger king parking lot at the time, in downieville, transmitting at 60 watts. Its neat that I was able to hit you with all the signal-blocking obstacles I70 has.
