PJ and I met up w/Ecobrad for the weekend and originally planned on doing a few nights on Shasta with the hopes of summiting. Wellll... the weather ended up interfering w/those plans, however, we did get some much needed POW. PN stoked to wake up to a winterwonderland in the *assen lot

Since the weather forecast called for 80 MPH winds on Shasta we decided to stay at *assen. The winds were pretty bad in the morning but tapered off during the day. Sanfrantastico met up w/us too. Eco and SF skinning.

Happy B-Day E.B. I gotta have some Shasta & Lassen in my near future. What size bed does your camper have in it? Im 6'4" and just wonderin if my long ol legs would fit in something like that Ive been looking at motor homes and that looks sweet and a whole lot cheaper..

We missed ya KS. But we felt your mojo presence through Eco's board. These mtns aren't going anywhere.

Systemsplit - At 6'4", you'd be pretty squished in this one, both sleeping and standing.

Very cool TR! 4 days, and SF said you guys did 4 laps the day he rode with you guys, because Puff Nattie rallied for one more to get the powder stash. That's awesome, impressive!

Happy Birthday Eco! PN - your action shots are truely awesome. Mine mostly came out sucky, so here are a bunch of scenic shots..

We were going to ride the backside of this mountain until we noticed all the new snow was leaving. :(

Thanks for taking so many nice pictures Nattie and PJ. I had a blast hanging out with you guys. Everyone needs to know that the main ingredient for the weekend was laughing. At ourselves, each other, you, whatever. Gotta love long weekends with no worries--expect freakin Barbara :wink:

And yeah, the pop-up rules. Nothing like waiting out a windstorm by relaxing on cushioned seats and drinking coffee.

Matt-The road was closed at the SW parking lot but its plowed all the way through.

I knew you were gonna post that freakin split-N-dales photo :roll: Aren't you guys ever too hot for a shirt but too lazy to take your boots off?

Thanks for all the birthday wishes everyone. Nothing like POW on your birthday.
