Whip out those license plates and winkies! Talk about whatever you want, as long as it's about dualsporting.

7/10/15 Dualsporting To Happy Camp Via The Siskiyou Crest

Postby Tawmass » Sat Jul 11, 2015 3:27 pm

It was planned. DaveR, TinyK and JohnC and I would all meet up at John's place to ride a lengthy dualsport ride to Happy Camp, CA and back. Dave assured us it would only be about 120 miles. Methinks he speaks with forked tongue. Speaking of the Davester, literally every other time I've ridden with him, it has rained. After this ride, he continues to deliver! I just may have to nickname him Mr. Rain-X!

We took off towards Anderson Butte via back roads, great temps and excellent vistas.
Image

We soon stopped for a quick break on Wagner Gap, then continued on, as we had a long day ahead of us.
Image

We eventually made our way to Siskiyou Gap after many breathtaking vistas, making our way through Wrangle Gap, and ending up near Dutchman's Peak.

We then descended our way into California with some rain, stopping at Alex Hole, eventually coming to Hamburg (with more rain) and made our way to Happy Camp. Unfortunately due to Obama and the environmental extremists, this area will probably be closed to monument status soon.

At Happy Camp, we encountered Bigfoot briefly, topped off with petrol, then made our way back to Oregon's Cave Junction. While in Cave Junction, who popped out of the crowd but an old riding/racing friend BruceZ from Grants Pass - small world! Good to see you and thanks for the jerky treats! We were running late, so hit the tarmac all the way home by way of Fish Hatchery Road and Hwy 238.

At the end of the day, my odometer totaled 226 miles of every kind of weather, but snow and sleet! Yet another wonderful day of riding in paradise!

Some of my favorite riding area. All those fire roads up Donomore meadows, Dutchman peak, Wrangle Camp, Wagner Cr, Mt. Ashland, etc.
