    What a strong group we had on that mountain. Exhilarating effort guys! The summit views have few rivals. I'd go again.....ahem.....a little less rough on the return I'll admit.

    I had a wonderful day regardless of the thigh burner and ass kicker climb. The company I keep are the best. They make it fun and worth it. I did this peak...check! No need to do it again! Lol

    I had a great time as usual, except for the off trail short cut through the manzanita brush that someone wanted to take (no name mentioned). Ouch!! Thanks Tom for organizing this hike!

    I know some people that clear out the glove box and leave it open at trailheads.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
