New Years weekend

Yay! Another three day weekend!!

Friday popped into town quickly to catch the UFC fight and hang out with Puzzleman again. Silly man, when most normal people would be resting at home, not him! He's hanging out with the rest of the crazies. Sheesh! But on the way in, I grabbed some pictures of the still burning Laurel Fire... a 300+ acre WILDFIRE in December.

Anyway, Saturday and Sunday my Dad and I headed out for some off roading fun. There has been no precipitation at all. Which means the roads up in the mountains are free and clear. We headed up Long Canyon on the western edge of the Stillwater Range. There's a cache up there that hasn't been found since 2008. We were hoping to be the second to find on that elusive cache, but alas, it was not to be. After a 30 minutes search, we gave up and continued on up the road to Wildhorse Pass and around the Humbolt Sink. Got a handful of caches and then home to await the new year. Though I crashed around 10. Ugh.

Sunday, we were back out on the road exploring from Dayton Valley Rd over to Adrian Valley that we explored last week. That was an enjoyable ride and an awesome location to boot. Took a ton of pictures as we made our way over to Hwy 95. Then it was off to grab two new FTFs. While those were fun and successful, the best time was when we found a patch of loose dusty sand and blasted through it with the Jeep. I had a great time grabbing pictures of that!

Monday was just a time to hang out with my buddy and chillax after the stress of the holidays. Didn't do a whole lot, picked up a few caches, and just chatting lightly about flotsam and jetsam.

All in all a great weekend! Hope yours was as well!!

Here's the pictures,
