    The camping trip sounds great, if I could figure out how to get camping stuff up to the hills. Obviously my bike is not made for packing a house on the back of it. Lol
    Ill have to look up your ride. I have hard bags. So a back packers stove some instant dry food and water is all i need. Sleeping bag and pad bungeed to the sissy bar. Couple change of cloths

    And thanks on the gold country area. Being raised in redding, i kinda of figured all the foot hills are gold country. Except the bay of course.

    A meet and greet in Sacramento are would be cool!

      I grew up both in Los Angeles and Chico. Loved both of those area's especially Chico. Here there are a few good places to ride and visit. Sequoia National Park, Yosemite etc. along with some out of the way little bar a grills not too many know about.
      Remember. No matter where you go, there you are.

        The 'Gold Country' riding is one of our favorite areas. Since we basically live out on the edges of it, it is an easy ride to get up into lassen, or head out from Red Bluff towards Yosemite or Tahoe. We have a place in Tahoe we can camp for free. Blackwood Canyon. 7 days free camping. Quincy area is very beautiful too. I am actually having adventure touring tires installed on my bike this year. Our roads out here are so brutal that the cheap chinese tires it came with just don't hold up. I replaced my rear shinko with another brand new shinko, and the brand new tire went flat after 2 rides this spring. Jed says it is because they have very weak sidewalls and just can't hold up to lots of mountain roads and cornering. At this point I don't doubt it a bit. So this next set will be Michelin Scorcher 32's. We will see how those do. =)
        I am hoping to see some folks this summer, but we will have to see how things go. this might be the last year I can ride much, kidney doctor says I will be on dialysis within another year.

          Hey Loren, glad to see you lurking around. Sorry to hear about your kidneys. Yah, we did talk about a gold country meet a while back, didn't we? ...That could be good. I'm always up for camping. We could even rent out a house on Air BnB. Just did a quick search, and there are plenty of places that can sleep up to 12 for 4 days and 3 nights for around $100 - $150 per person *total*. Something to consider.

            A nice central area for something like that would be the Angel's Camp or Sonora area. You can cover a lot of area in the gold country from those towns. Did hwy 49 all the way from Mokelume Hill south to Mariposa last weekend. Great and beautiful one day ride. Went right through both those historic towns. Heading back up tomorrow.

                This was one of the stops on 200 mile gold trip ride today. I guess they discovered gold back in 1850 on some guys sheep ranch, so hey let's call the town Sheep Ranch. 80 degrees and a freaking awesome ride.

                  You guys/gal are making me GREEN with envy! I live in the armpit Midwest. I’ve visited Cali several times and even lived there for approximately a year when I was a kid. It’s true what they say, location is everything!

                    We have been trying to put together a weekend up in Lassen, but life just keeps getting in the way. However it would be fun to go camping up in the gold country. We even know a place you can camp for free at Lake Tahoe lol. Good riding up there. I also really miss Hwy 395, Yosemite and Mammoth.

                      I'm down for a grip and grin on this side of the country. Just need a decent heads up for funds and taking time off.

                        If you guys organize a four day event in extreme NoCal, there are many WA and OR members who will join you! Our NW Starfest events have been great with arrival on a Thursday and group rides on Friday and Saturday. Leave Sunday. Just need a cheap hotel base camp and great roads!
