Unbelievable weather, great company, fantastic country....just wish I could have stayed longer.

Put 190 miles on my 4-Wheeler in 3 days.

Hows that for a view?

Forest fire burning SE of Elk City..

Day 2 was kind of smokey...only rode 45 miles or so that day.

Got to crawl around plenty of cool, old mining properties...

Which way do we go? Aw, what the heck, we'll try 'em both!
camptrip06100.jpg

All the way up into what is called the Buffalo Hump. Right at 7200' elevation. The machines were getting kind of weak up there!

Lunch stop on what turned into a nearly 80 mile day. Shot is of Wildhorse lake.

Each nite, we'd come back to camp and do a little shootin'. Here we are loading up the .50 BMG. That puppy makes a BIG bang!!

Can't wait until next year!!

Here are a few that show what the trails are like...two-track trails everywhere!

This was 10 miles of he!!. The roughest road I have ever traversed....ever. I'm bringing a kidney belt next year..

Even tougher yet for my buddies on 2 wheels...

it isn't mine....but it was fun to shoot! Didn't kick nearly as bad as I thought it would...with the muzzle break in the front, it felt about the same as my .45-70.

Made a much bigger hole though!!

A couple more just for grins...

An old..(very old) air compressor...used to pump air into the mine..

Old ore car.
camptrip06049.jpg


Standing on a monstrous tailings pile. The mine here had thousands of feet of underground workings. What you see below is the lower adit (horizontal tunnel)
camptrip06102.jpg


Here is that lower tunnel. Not real safe at the opening....as you can see the header has been shored up...lots of weight on it from above.
camptrip06108.jpg


Here is another adit. This one was much safer...not sure how far back it went...we forgot flashlites

went in a little ways anyhow..

Another photo of Wildhorse lake. Should send one of these into Honda...make a great ad. All 5 machines were Hondas, the oldest a '78. None of 'em missed a lick the whole time. And believe me, we worked 'em!!! 190 miles felt more like 300!

Those are some great pictures!! I do a lot of business with Ingersol Rand. Would you mind if I sent that picture of the compressor to some of the guys I deal with? They would love seeing that!
