    Gold note orv

    Long time Buddies Boarder255 and Adam-in-Nevada met up the other weekend to camp and ride together in the deep soils of the forested flanks of the central sierra's pacific slope. Don't normally go to official ORV places but the deep organic soils of this area were entirely too seductive. Here is a quick video:

    Nice time of year to visit, snow has melted to mud & almost no dust yet.
    Dry summers and traffic will eventually churn these trails into fluffy dust in places. We were there just late enough in the season to regret neglecting to bring any mosquito spray. Still lots of high country seasonal snow closures and most of official fee based campgrounds are also closed.
    Lots of isolated primitive campsites were available to a first time visitor like me; we had a good one but could have had several better ones had we only known. The guys were already on the road and my job as the scout was to find us a good spot for both a trailer and a hammock we could all find. Not a problem with only three of us, harder with a dozen TWs. These days texting works about half the time if on high ground near a trans mountain arterial. Never saw a ranger so he/she could issue me my annual camp fire permit but we sat around the fire chatting till late anyways.
    A fellow could get hooked on these smooth forested single and double tracks that plunge steeply from mile high ridgelines into deep canyons hosting scenic flowing rivers.

    Ya just gotta love Neature. We haven't been out for a couple weeks other than my afternoon ride over the weekend. I'm sure the usual camping places will be busy this weekend.

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?
