    Saturday we will travel out Tesla/Corral Hollow, short run down Hy 5 to Howard Rd. exit, then follow Keyes to Snelling for gas at the 76. Up through Hornitos to Hy 49 to run the Little Dragon to Coulterville, regroup under the tree in front of the hotel. Gas again at Miner`s Mart in Big Oak Flat. Then down in what will be hell this time of year... Ward Ferry. (I have been down there for a lot of years now, and not once have I come across any kind of ferry down there.) Then we come out on Hy 108, and lunch at Andy`s Mountain Grill in Mi Wuk. Over the top, and down to the bottom of Hy 108 to Hy 395 and gas in Walker Ca. Then out the backside of Walker to avoid the boring, and CHP infested section of 395, Coleville. Up Hy 89, to Hy 88, Morman Immigrant Trail, and Pollock Pines for the night. 349 miles and a few passes.

    Sunday a short trip up Hy 80 to Ice House/ Wentworth Springs Rd., down thru Placerville, Bucks Bar, Fairplay, Slug Gulch, Fiddletown, Volcano, to gas and lunch in West Point. On thru Jackson, and out Stoney Creek Rd., Ione, get ready for a warm ride out Twin Citys Rd., across the valley to the cool of Hy 160 along the Delta. Gas again at the Shell at the bottom of the Antioch bridge. The last section on the ride will take us out Marsh Creek Rd. to Morgan Territory Rd., that will take us out to Hy 580 and home. About 340 miles to 580.

    ************************************************************************************************************************************************

    As with all my rides feel free to do, and ride where you want too. Take pictures, sit under a tree, NO ONE WILL BE MARKING THE TURNS, OR WAITING FOR YOU. See you at the lunch location, and or at the hotel at night.

    If you do leave to head home, or have a break down, please let someone know, so we don`t look for you at the hotel.

    *************************************************************************************************************************************************

    I will have GPX files for you next week.

    There is a nasty lane closure on 395 just north of Walker. We rode up to the front of the stoppage (past a CHP!) and then just decided to make a u-turn and have lunch on Topaz instead. Hopefully your plan avoids this nasty.

    Eastside Ln., behind Walker, comes out on Topaz Ln, and 395. Hopefully this beats the backup.

    Computer says 1:30 to Snelling 76. So out at 9 so 10:30- 11:00. We won`t need gas until Big Oak Flat, so we will just get in , and out again.
