    More of Phred'z Darn Re-Runs

    Never too soon to start planning next seasons adventures. With a little preparation and available time our little machines can take us camping and exploring in some pretty neat places. Here are just a few of the memories from the other year I drag back home courtesy of the TW.


    I take my dogs for limited runs at times, then leave them at camp. Comfortable footwear is important as I like to get off the bike and explore on foot. New Forma Adventure boots seem a good match to provide protection and waterproofing while also permitting a little scrabbling on foot.

    And by all means gather some friends for a shared outing. Bananachunks, evan and XT255 joined me on this three day camp-n-ride in the Sierras.

    ...that is if they are willing to follow. For some reason folks question my alleged "easy rides". Some can be smooth, serene and scenic. I do try to keep at least 3 feet from any cliff edges.


    Besides, never know who or what you may encounter on the road.Antelope.jpg

    We needed you there Joe to show us how leap that log.
    We just stopped for a quick break to admire the beauty then resumed our ride since our camp was another forty miles away on the other side of the Pacific Crest.
    No other tracks or footprints there, think we might have been the first ones up there that year. I felt a little guilty even leaving our tread marks on the beach since they would rob future visitors of the same sense of discovery that we were enjoying.
    A sort of hidden gem one finds on Google Earth, I tried re-visiting there twice this year but was stopped by snow then later high water as trail-head crosses the spillway of another gorgeous lake. Next year...makes the perfect moto-camp destination since it is inaccessible to 4-wheelers and most others stop at the first perfectly acceptable lake.

    Here are some logs for Joe. I dodged as many as possible while cruising around the upper Stanislaus River, Betty Boop doesn't like to leap.

    Pavement anyone? This ride is popular with sport bikes, cruisers, adventure bikes and the occasional TW. The scrapes and drag marks in some of the hairpins attest to the enthusiasm some riders must show. A car's ballistic skid marks rocketing off the road around 1:40 near the bicycle also show some drivers and riders are better than others.

    Another good run is through this narrow corridor bisecting the Mokulunme Wilderness between the Blue Lakes off Hwy 88 and Hermit Valley on Hwy 4. We played in this gentle stream repeatedly before
    completing about 8 miles of steeply eroded bouldery jeep road.
