    Here's Ricardo Kuhn explaining something I don't think I want to know about. It probably involves milling aluminum to manufacture a really sweet GS gizmo if history holds to form.

    The man's a genius with design.

    Here's Traveltoad with his big GSA. Those guys headed up Lippencott Road, which is hugely gnarly and not maintained at all. There's a big sign that warns the road should only be traversed by high clearance or 4x4 vehicles.

    Here's DesertRat and his modified F650. Out in the desert, GSs are in their element. This one gets used for lots of offroad and has the scars and mods to show for it.

    I also ran into Mick McKinnon and his lovely wife, whose name I have forgotten because I'm a last word getting, self centered kind of guy. Sorry, Mick. Your wife's a peach.

    Here's Mark. We rode down and back together. He lives up in Sebastapol and I covet his motorcycle.

    Rick Landi was there and wasn't too happy about me catching him with a bad case of tent head.

    Here's Brian Curry (DATA) on the right and a couple of guys whose name I can't recall. See previous notes about last word, etc. for lame excuse.

    Not sure who this guy is, but it's probably wise to keep your bourbon away from him.

    You sure it has nothing to do with Bourbon?

    So anyway, where was I? I was still wandering around the campground, trying to head up for some breakfast, where I ran into DarrylRi, JF Brown and Steve Woodward, who were on their way to the campground.

    Herb and Wilma Stark, who'd ridden in from Avinger, TX:


    and Skipper Brown, in from Phoenix:

    I pretty much spent the afternoon doing a whole lot of nothing. I was going to take a ride and do some hiking, but instead, I sat around and shot the breeze all afternoon with the other slackers.

    Dale Blanchard came by on his electric scooter, outfitted with a ham radio rig.

    Dale's a geek. He's one of my people, I think.
