Well once again another great ride.
Strawbobrob, BigLou, Flybynite, Joe and
Donna, John and Myself left on time for a ride up the 395. We meet
up with Wayne and Rick at 4 corners. Our first stop was at
Pearsonville where we meet Bob and Faith and Jimmy. The weather was
a bit scary with dark clouds looming over head. We all gassed up and
continued our way along 395. The next stop was Bishop for some gas
and a break. We were lucky so far with the rain. Just a sprinkle or
so. From Bishop we made for Lee Vineing for lunch. The Mobil station
on the intersection of 395 and Tioga Pass has a great lunch with
more than enough to eat. Joe and Donna had to leave us from there
and head back. The smaller tanks topped off and away we went to
Carson City. We hit some more rain going through the Walker river
canyon but not much. It also got quite cold as well. We arrived at
the Motel around 5:00 and Ed, Rob and Daryl were there to greet us.
Saturday morning we all gathered at 9:00
for a short ride to Virginia City. The weather was much nicer in the
morning and made for a great day. We spent around 4 hours exploring
Virginia City. A couple of the group went back to the motel while
the rest of us decided to take a ride up to Lake Tahoe. We hit quite
a bit of rain up by the lake but it was beautiful all the same. By
the time we headed down the hill the sun had come out and we dried
out. A few went and got some lunch while the others went back to
motel to rest. For dinner some of us went to the Fandango Casino.
We split up on Sunday morning for the trip
home. A few wanted to leave early while most of us left around
8:00am. Bob and Faith left on a 2 week ride up north while Wayne,
Rick and myself went west. Wayne and I made our way over Ebbets
pass. I had never been over that pass. All I can say is that it was
a beautiful ride with water falls and lakes along the way. Quite
chilly with snow on the ground at almost 9000 feet elevation.
That's all for this report, thanks to all
and hope to see you on the next ride.
Don't forget to make you plans for the June
ride on the 27th.
