11/2 is the cutoff for rooms. Get on about it. If you have ever sat around or ridden with this group of fine folks you know what you may be missing. If you haven't it is time to find out.  :motonoises: :great: :beerchug:

Are all the rooms sold out?  R&J might want to swing by for a night, although they'll be caging it.

Dunno. Gotta call. There's a couple of other places to stay right close. C'man, do you know, is the road by Scotty's castle open or closed?

Next weekend. Boo Yah. C U there. Grab your current AD by the short hairs and tell him what you want (within reason of course).  :) :beerchug:

SoCal people are probably already bored with this, but I've never been down Kern Canyon past Lake Isabella.  Here's a longer ride possibility to Coseree's Deli almost to Bakersfield down 178.  144 miles one way.

Looks like I'm going to make it. Anybody need a roommate to share expenses? Will be staying Saturday and Sunday in Lone Pine. If not, I'll find a room.

That was a fun weekend!  A little on the cold side for the ride, but a good time!  The Crusty Demons of Dirt took a different route than me and it sounds like they had a good time also...   ;D

Thanks to the organizers!

Been watching your posts. Looks like ya'll are in a great area.
Define a little on the cold side?

Ride safe, Ted

PS: While ya'll were enjoying your area, our group did Arkansas.
      Had a high of about 51*, but most of the riding was in the mid-high 30's*..
           {Danged cold for a South Texas guy}..
14 Connie (Traveler II) / 03 Connie (Buddy)
Gone but not forgotten; 87 and 00 Connies..

If your not already a COGger, "consider becoming one".

Had fun too Cman and thanks for the ride along. Ted, low 30's to high 40's. Was Sherman pass closed? Yes. Did we ride all the way through? Yes.  >:D We had a Sailor, a Marine and an Airborne Soldier along. We adapted and overcame.

Great trip in the Eastern Sierras! Celebrating our military and Veterans was super! Loved that loop we did through Kennedy Meadows, Sherman pass, Kernville, down the 178 and back to Lone Pine! Thank you for setting it up Mark! You missed out Ted!! The Southwest is where it's at!!
