    I feel bad for the people that went to bed early and/or camped at the Best Western...They missed out on some epic midnight minibike racing around the campfire.

    Hey... I resemble that remark! 'sides- we "camped" at the Cascade Lodge Staging Area (cheap, great rooms- 2 thumbs up).

    After the "raffle" (Bill, Bryon & Jon giving away tons of swag; ...thanks guys!) it was starting to really rain (ok, it was more of slight drizzle- throw me a bone here). I noticed that Brian was adding a log to harden the lip of the jump... and the first xr100 over it endo'ed towards my direction. I happened to be holding Bryon's b-day Fireball and almost spilled it in my haste to get clear of the flying debris; so I retreated a bit. And knowing that crowd, things could've got ugly if I had spilled any. I immediately went back to drinking plain bourbon.

    Just about then my son reminded me that Oregon has these DUI laws or some such- who knew? Seeing how the 30' bonfire had died down to a nice campfire, Lynyrd Skynyrd morphed into Johnny Cash, and there were people who were snoring next to the fire while embers glowed orange on their jackets- with the soles of their boots slowly melting... it seemed like the right time to make our escape, er- uh, I mean leave.

    Hell, it was midnight- and I planned to be up at the crack of noon, too.

    Anyhooo- I had a great time and some great riding. Thanks to all that helped put this on (BMP crew especially). Next year I'm getting there Thursday night though- seems like I heard that I missed some of the fun.

    [most of the above is guaranteed true. mostly]

    The Almost-Over-The-Hill Gang rides again!
    The guys came from all over to ride the perfect conditions at East Fort Rock / China Hat. Really great riders and a blast to ride with.

    Jon (Whitefish, MT), Kevin (Boise), Walt (Whitefish, MT), yours truly, and Chris (Moab).

    Great to see Jon again and finally meet Walt. Nice to have Kevin make it too.
    Hope to ride with everyone next year. And as always, thanks to Bill, Bryon, and Jon for all the Husqvarna and Gas Gas coolness.
