Roaming Rally 2012

This past weekend (June 7-10) was the 2nd annual Roaming Rally. I'm exhausted but it was so much fun. Although I decided to cut things short by a day due to lack of sleep. Two nights in a row of sleeping in a tent with a hundred drunken bikers .... I didn't get much sleep. By Saturday morning, I was wiped out and concerned that riding such a long day with barely an hour's sleep in the last 2 days might be the perfect recipe for disaster. Riding while exhausted is just asking for trouble, so Dave and I decided to head for home before we got killed. Even so, Thursday, Friday and Saturday were terrific. We took the long way home via some great trails and gravel roads, and had the chance to rest on Sunday before going back to work on Monday.

Can't wait until next year !

Three nights of camping, 1,192 Kms total distance.

I stitched together a few random video clips from the weekend.

Turtle in the grass. We moved him there after spotting him lying 
in the middle of the trail. Saw many turtles this weekend.
