October 26, 27, 28, 29. Arrive the 26th, ride the 27th and 28th depart the 29th.
For those members that missed the first two "Ride and Shoots", congratulations on your common sense. For the rest of you this will be an easy 60 miles of logging roads ending at an abandoned mine on the shore of Shasta lake. The area that we will be riding will be void of the natural environmental rejuvenation processes that has been occurring in the forests of California.

Bring what ever gun you can be safe and responsible with. We will set up some targets in the area of the mine and have at it. Targets drug behind a TW could be popular. The opportunity to shoot some different and interesting guns will present itself. There will also be a Rock Throwing contest. Sue is the odds on favorite. Participants are welcome to choose a gift from the notorious camping gift box. There is a new rule concerning the gift box. Once you chose an item from the box, you can't put it back! That's the rule. No exceptions. Being near Halloween I think a pumpkin target may be appropriate.

Directions to the McCloud Bridge Campground.
1) Redding, Calif. North on Interstate 5 for 28 miles.
2) Freeway Exit 698, Gilmen Rd.
3)Follow Gilmen Rd. For 28 miles.
4) cross McCloud Bridge and Taa Daa your there.

There is no electricity or reservations. There is water, pit toilets and an occasional bear. The camp is directly on the lake shore with excellent fishing. It is a fee camp ground.

Dirts a Flyen SanDue :rolleyes::D


McCloud Bridge Campground
McCloud Bridge Campground is located far up the McCloud River Arm of Shasta Lake in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. Those who make the drive out to McCloud Bridge know that they will be rewarded with a beautiful, quiet setting and great shoreline fishing, especially for brown trout. The nearest boat launch ramp is 8 miles to the south at Hirz Bay.

McCloud Bridge Campground has 14 campsites which can accommodate small RVs, trailers, and tents. Three of the sites are doubles. All campsites are first come, first served. The campground is on the site of an old ranch, surrounded by fruit trees, berries and sweet peas. Some of the most scenic sites are on the lake/river side of the campground. Even when the lake levels drop, the campers enjoy river-side camping.

Wish we could go! Unfortunately the timing just isn't in our favor..
Once The Admiral is officially retired and becomes my stay at home wife we should be able to attend more gatherings.. He's promised to do all the wifely duties and when I come home from my grueling work week he'll have the camper loaded with the motorcycles, gas, food and clean clothes and all I'll have to do is jump in the truck with just a smile on and off we'll go.. giggle

I am a maybe. May need to take wife to San Francisco that weekend to vote in run-off presidential election of her former homeland where voting is a requirement rather than a privilege.

While our politics are rich in character assassinations there they occasionally have more traditional assassinations. Her conservative candidate is recovering from being brutally stabbed at a political rally by a buddy of the former socialist president who is currently in jail for corruption. Country is on cusp of deciding whether to return to the rule of law or continue socialist policy buying votes with deficit spending giveaways and permitting ongoing lawlessness. So this election seems important.

Pulling the shotgun out of his pants was classic. Now, if (blank) were banned ...comment deleted due to the possibility of causing civil unrest in this thread. :p

I once carried a pistol on my right hip. I fell off my mule and landed on my back/right hip. (because of an idiot hiker who didn't have her dog on a leash). I got a big bruise where the gun was...and it hurt for days but I forgot about the pain because of my broken shoulder.

Anyway, chest holsters would be good when riding. Not only for quick draw purposes but because it could also enhance your breast size (this is of course if this is a concern to you). Is that a cyclops boob? What's sticking out of your chest underneath that Cardigan riding sweater?...for example.

McCloud Campground:
Fees$20 - single site (1 vehicle and 8 people)
$35 - double site (2 vehicles and 12 people). Additional vehicles, if space allows, will be charged $6 per night.

12 sites, some are possibly tent only and this will be last weekend open before they lock the gate. If we need more space who do we toss into the water by base of falls? mccloud.jpg
Any idea of stage one fire restrictions still in effect? A campfire is always appreciated, helps burn the evidence.
Redding remains closest source for beer, bullets and bandages.:D

Have spoken with the Shasta-Trinity Forest Service over the phone. I asked if I could have a fire in the McCloud
Bridge Campground. The nice lady said fire restrictions have been lifted and I could have a campfire. She continued on discribing a memo they received from Admiral explaining my improper use of propane and propane accessories. I promised her there would be a responsible adult in our group. Please some one invite such a person. My PPPP ( Personal Propane Probationary Period ) will be lifted by Moab! I'll be cooking on the front burner then, Dirts a Flyen SanDue:rolleyes::D

LILLETOMMY HELP. I'm bringing in the big guy! Second time this thread has been hijacked! Thread hi jackers, you know who you are. Might be different if you hijackers were to participate in the ride, but no, your here to talk pink. Why not take your pink conversation over to the Wrench and Ride thread, they are a lot more friendly and tolerant. We're bad ass blkers with guns. So, please LittleTommy make them stop! Dirts a Flyen SanDue :rolleyes::D
