aaron & nicko, jamison & brandon, jan & ryan had a plan to camp at loon and do a couple of recon mission to the con
friday & sat.

so mon i figured i could at least try and make this trip.  got the "most important" fixes done and headed out fri
around 11:30.  got to the top of ice house and stopped to throw some manifold burritos on and found out i lost my
rear dr side brake line (broke... it's on my fix list) at some point.  lost it probably on my way up ice house.  i did a walk
around at the save mart in placerville and nothing was leaking.  drove it to loon/camp but nobody had a flare tool or
plug so tried to pinch it off but no go so just pinched off the rear brakes with some borrowed vise grips (thanks jan).

we ended up cruising out to the other side of the bowl.

got back to camp before dark, had dinner, and drank ourselves stupid.

got up in the morning, went to loon and cleaned up a bit to try and knock the haze out of our heads.  thanks jan
for having a empty spot in the motorhome.  it made getting up in the morning easier.

we then headed to ellis... then walker... then soup for the day.  we just kept on going.  only maybe a dozen rigs on
the trail going this way or that way.

jan purdy much just did circles/lapped us all day or at least he could have. flipoff2


by the time jamie and i got to top of walker he was already at soup.
aaron did his best to try and keep up but jan's rig is just... a race car. Grin

like father like son

the only shot of jamie besides when parked... i purdy much did what i always do and road caboose

did stop a couple of times to take a couple of pic's just to prove i was there




frt end did great except for my fawking hubs coming loose... again. Roll Eyes

kickass time.  thanks guys.  the last time i was on the con was on '06... jackoff

look at it this way.  some people want to get to the end (where ever that might be) and some people just want to be on the trail.  me i like to count pine needles.  smokin
