Went for a ride yesterday at Fringe with Thumpmeister, near Mattawa. Got some good shots. Total distance was 48 miles, roughly four hours of riding... Lots of soft sand, lots of rocks... fun ride. We started just off the highway about a mile south of the Vantage bridge, and headed out into the boonies. Ran into a few other riders, one said he was a tt'er, good to chat with you and your family. Otherwise not many riders around where we were, i think we saw a grand total of 8 other bikes, until we got to the Beverly sand dunes. They were packed... so basically we started up by vantage, ended up riding all the way to the Beverly sand dunes (cross country of course) to jump some dunes for a few minutes, then made our way back. Found the old service road to the railroad bridge that's out of service (see pictures), then made our way back up past the dam and to the trucks. Amazingly enough, i'm not even really sore today. Maybe it was being in Odessa last weekend that did it!
