I will check with the boss lady. I am pretty sure the Pats game is on Sunday, so Saturday would rock.

Heading down Rock Gap, I almost went head on with a guy on a dirt bike. It was just before a blind corner, there was a large rock to the right of the trail and I was rounding left of it. I was going less than walking speed. He stopped just before touching my bumper and starting yelling about how people drive on the right side in this country. I stepped out fully intending on tossing him and his bike over the cliff, but he went around and sped up the hill.

Pandas and polar bears look so huggable! I was thinking of getting my wifes climbing helmet airbrushed to look like a panda.

Personally, I think racism is funny, but I don't have a huge chip on my shoulder looking to be offended.

That's ok Ysb, you know he will get his with an attitude like that! Hopefully it doesn't kill him. It's always someone else's fault, didn't you know? I guess you missed the memo! :laugh;

Also, I know someone that does awesome airbrush work. He had his garage door painted up like a seascape with whales and everything for a while. He's done "real flames" on cars that looked absolutely sick. I can hit him up and see what he charges!?

So, yeah. Went over Wheelers Pass today. It wasn't at all difficult, but up the Cold Creek side to the peak was really uncomfortable. It's gotten worse since I last went over last year. Lots of rocks just large enough to be annoying were embedded in the trail. After the peak and down through to Pahrump, the ride was beautiful.

This is about as difficult as it got today, but there are a few patches of ice that might be a problem. Snow from a few weeks ago started to melt and with the temp drops we've had the last few night, they froze over again into a slick glass.

Should have posted this one first. It was just past the parking area at Cold Creek. We were surprised to see this little guy so late in the season. He still has a bit of his umbilical cord left so, he was probably dropped within a few weeks. Doubtful he'll make it through this winter.

The Charcoal Kilns on the Pahrump side. There is now a fence all the way around them. Sad to see they have to do that to protect them.

I was out in the jeep with the wife a few weeks ago, and she asks me why I was spending so much time on the left side of the road, which seemed funny as the trail was only a couple of feet wider than my jeep.

Last picture for now. Saw a bunch of these on a hillside. I was happy that I was finally able to see a live deer around here, but those appear to be elk. Stupid elk. Nice kill shots.

Thanks for that, but I saw some panda helmets online and design is simple enough to use a Sharpie.
