Long day. Great ride boys!!!

By sunset i had burnt all my fuel! It was about 30 min before dark when i hit RES. mark was on about 7km of his RES already. we where lost and some what confused, heading in the wrong direction. we made the smart choice to go way back the way we came. thankfully we made it back through the river and up the other side to where there was a known logging road system. he ran out just as we hit the roads. so we did allot of coasting in neutral tucked down. on the flats and up hills i was towing him with my back pack in 4th gear @ 2500rpm. We made it back to the trucks just as i ran out of fuel and it was getting dark {well after sunset}.

prob the most fun day of riding i have had since Cambodia. :thumbsup: :confused:

This is the straight of Juan De Fuca. in the distance in the Olympic mountains {Washington state}.

here is the codec pack I recommend, it contains a lot of useful codecs and no garbage. K-lite codec pack full download.
