Anyone else coming? The stage is set. Remember that it's all about the campground. Just riding Downieville is not really the event.

The best of times right here. Andy has not been able to ride for 5 years because of a back. We got it done with ebikes and cbd

We stepped away from the news
to ride and gaze at the views
and were removed from a world that divides us
and immersed in a land that unites us
and were again reminded
that it's about the experiences we seize
the people that we meet
the faces that we greet
and the friends we keep
to create the memories that define us

Yup, that's the one. He was singlespeed brother from Socal. How did you know him? He's actually the co-organizer of the Downieville Gathering.

We would run into him occasionally on the trails. He wasn't exactly nice to guys that weren't at his level. Seemed like he was always trying to prove something. Still, glad to hear he's back riding.

Andy was a smack talker in his youth. Always done in jest with a good heart though.

where do you guys recommend to camp up there?
We're always in Packern Saddle campground due to tradition and it's fine. Wild Plum by the river is good.

A good option is Packer Saddle at the shuttle drop-off or that fire road by the pct re-alignment for free-range camping
