Not This Time

sashi, packed up

plenty of room with the wolfman bags

just west of red bluff, securing the load before heading into the mountains

nice road through rolling pastures...this is where i almost t boned the wild boar. not in this pick, but nice curves here.

15 miles west of red bluff...turns to dirt, looks fun.

it continued for some time

into the mountains, getting good.

view from the trail, note ridgeline singletrack and mount shasta in background. nice views.

2nd half

flat tire, 2 inch nail...see "SPANKED" thread for details.

sashi, almost lost it off the embankment...steeper than it looks.

nappy time

to much snow past here...have to find another route, 2-3 weeks out this will be good, but not dusty.

klr is bullerproof

summary of the day: high tornado like wind in the morning, flat tire, nearly t-boning a large wild boar, wreck in snow almost losing the bike off an embankment, bug to the eyeball, broken tubular webbing and a lost gas can....great scenery and fun roads. maybe next time we will make it (see "spanked" for details).

Beautiful pics. Sounds like an interesting ride.

Thanks for the pics of the attempted trip!! At least you got some riding in!!

And now would be a good time to tell everyone how happy you are with those guards that kept everything from ruining your trip.
