filled up at flying J then headed out to Afton Last gas station we figured might as well top up again ( 30 min down the road) Pulled up to some great pricing. Pumps were all shut off.

All roses right?
Just after a long rough section... We pull off and re group decide we aren't going to push it all the way to Jonny's Memorial Site. We have our campsite that we stayed at in April off black canyon.
We all take off. 3 miles up the road. Get a call over the radio. Randy lost his shifter on his bike. What? What do you mean? It's gone it feel off somewhere between where we stopped after the road crossing and where he is. FAWK ok ill spin around a see if we can spot it. Scotty, steven, Randy,Kayla and I trolled the road. 3 times going 5mph ... found all kinds of shit snake, other broken parts, Spiders. No Shifter.

So he road it to camp in 5th lol

Mikey and a few of the guys attemped to fix it. could have made it work if it was 100% necessary but didnt want to mangle anything and Randy wasnt really into running it with a makeshift shifter.
So we BBQ'd and got pitted around the fire, RC Rock Crawling

Thanks Guys This Party is just getting started. That was just Friday

Tommy lol we could have used that intel. live and learn.

Mati - flaunt was busy caging trucks and being sick.

Anyways.

Good Morning Saturday
8109844182_bb6871669c_h.jpg

After Breakfast now we had to make a decision on the bike.
options were put the bike back on the hitch carrier which would have slowed the truck down even more or load it up in The Mouse.
Every one took my heavy stuff ( water, gas can, tent cot, Tools, Firewood, etc. )

We loaded that bitch up.

Next Stop we made was to the site where we put Jonny's memorial. To our dismay they had been washed away in a major rainstorm. We have plans to make something bigger and better for next trip

Now we headed off Mojave road to a path Scotty (sdecurti) put together...Headed to Fenner gas up.

We made a few stops along the way.
