I left Beatty about 8:30 this morning and rolled into home about 4:15 PM via this route (which actually stops a little short of my house for privacy purposes). No freeway at all, though there was a bit of divided 4-lane on 86 from Mecca to Salton City, and very little traffic. The roads between Baker and Twentynine Palms have all been repaved since I rode them last, and they're in pretty good shape. Borrego-Salton Seaway is in terrible shape for much of its distance.

Kudos again to mrduck for organizing this event, including the motel setup, lunch at Gold Point ghost town on Saturday, and dinner at KC's on Saturday night! And for leading a bunch of us to discover beautiful, scenic Silver Peak, NV. Not to mention taking us up to Horseshoe Meadows on Friday (I think Cornelis had something to do with that, too).

In about 3.

Thanks Don for another great event.

It's always nice to end the weekend on AFH and ACH. There's so much beauty up there.

I always look forward to the Sunday morning ride as we first decent into DV and then into PV. The views around every corner are SPECTACULAR.

Hey Bill, what a route to take you home!!! Very impressive indeed.

Back home about noon.

Weather was the best so far.

Thanks to the duck, even though his routing resulted in some bugs and dust on the little green bike.

Rode to San Simeon Sunday and then on to the Bay Area on Monday. Had a great time and especially the ride down led by Joe and Juanita. First time on these great roads - but not the last.

I learned it from Jamie (KMG_365) and Leslie (lesismore), who, if I recall correctly, learned it from Denny (Tool). I've used it a bunch going to and from Torrey, and a couple of times to or from DV. It adds about 2-2.5 hours compared to the quickest route, but keeps me off the dreaded slab. It can get kinda hot out there, though. This time, it was perfectly comfortable until I got south of I-10.

Got home about 1:45 today. Good to see everyone again (wished I'd have felt better though).Rode over Sherman Pass Sun. with Tank and Lbump. Great ride. Then it was on to Ben Lomond and my son's house. long day, 514 miles I think. Monday morning to Ft. Bragg to ride the coast but this morning it was raining and foggy so went inland to Willets and up 101. Still raining. the last 180 miles from Garberville were nice though.

'Til next time
