Fast, Med, and Slower 2 up routes are easy to make up. Isle Of Cali after some Montezuma time trials is one good plan. It’s so nice out in that area there’s no real reason to sit around til after dark.

The only ways to get up there are by way of 74 from either 371 or Palm Desert still. There’s a lot of dead time going on 371 to 74 and often times a ton of slow traffic. Idylwild is good for a camp trip but a loss of valuable time when out to hit some good roads. Just my opinion.

It looks like we are going in through desert center so we can run box canyon into mecca. I hear tell it's fresh fresh. Are you going through palm desert 74/371/79 and down Montezuma grade?

Nice route. Maybe meet up at the beginning of box canyon? 30 minutes either way?

Its a thought.  But at that point youre maybe an hour away from Borrego so i dont think its worth trying to spend time meeting up.  Just sprint for the grocery store in Borrego, get beer and meet at the pool.  May the best man win.  ;D

I’m still on the road at lunch in 29 Palms but I just had to let Mark know that CA-243 from Idyllwild to Banning is OPEN, smooth paved, and it was sweeter than sugar!

Jealous of the SoCal people that get to ride that often.

OMC and the Counterweight are home safe and sound. Had a flat blast seeing old friends and meeting new. The weather, the roads and the riding partners could not be beat. Tall tales and straight BS was outstanding. Props to all that attended. Man if you ever have a chance hit these events and meet these folks face to face do it. You will walk away happy. Semper Fi to all.

I'm back home as well and I second this!  It was great!  Nice to see everyone I'd already met and nice to meet some new people as well.
