    Really fun ride. The post-ride meal was...um...interesting. I thought for sure we'd be booted out!

    Happy go lucky Bo, but man can she curse like a salior


    I think DR and Splat were placing bets whether dirtrider was going to make it


    Slabz


    The roller wasn't challenging enough for dirtrider so he aired it out. We also got to hear what a 888 fork sounds like when it bottoms out.

    great photos! vos - did you go on the other otis ride? If so, did you take any photos of Quo Fan (Paul)?

    If so, could you let me know. We are doing a review of that Carver he was riding and the pics would be great to include in the thread.

    Best,

    Mark

    Awesome pix guys. I think the shot of Eammon's truck with the evacuation sign is going to be my new screen saver.

    It was good to see and ride with you folks again.

    Good luck with your up coming surgery Bo.

    I would've joined you all, but I had to start early, so I could finish early and be home for family stuff. I tried to do my loop so I'd run into y'all on the way out, but no such luck...Great pics.

    Those ladders that Dave and Pete rode look so easy in photos. Not so in person.

    Couple more of the bus leaving the cape!
