Ridgetop, congrats on your new truck! You got me drooling on my keyboard. Send pics. If you go to Klamath across the street from the Camper Corral and just north of the Bear Bridge is the village of Klamath, reservation headquarters. If you visit them they should be able to give info on local trails. Enjoy your trip.

Now Rod (errr...Deb???)..I know your post says "Rod" at the end of it, but please tell me FabDeb took your radar [keyboard] and went underneath it without you knowing...

Hummm....one second thought, she might've only commented on the lumberjack's big feet!

Wow..quite the intro into RidgeTops' new CTD...now all we got to wonder about is when Howie's gonna Photoshop/rob Dave's pic of the lumberjack and/or put the ox in the back of the new truck! Those Dodge/Chrysler guys are always thinkin'!

Gosh darn it Dave...how the heck are ya buddy?!

Sorry Phil, if I had checked this earlier I would have chimed in. This area you're talking about is my HOME TOWN baby! And yes, the ox really does have huge nutz, you can stand right under them. I grew up in a little town called Trinidad, an hour South of Crescent City.

Crescent City does have some great coastal scenery, but the town itself is 5 miles from Pelican Bay Penitentiary and is full of meth-freaks, I would avoid staying the night there. Good for a day trip, good surf, maybe lunch or dinner, that's it.

Jedidiah Smith State Park, however, is just inland from Crescent City, on highway 199, and is awesome. Right on the Smith River. If you kayak there is a 13 mile class-3 on the South Fork Smith that is incredible.

As far as moto riding, you're prety much out of luck my friend. When I was a kid we rode all over the place, but it was on timber company land...PRIVATE PROPERTY. The rest of it is all national forest, and tree huggers abound up there, so I think riding is not allowed.

You can find places to ride, but not LEGALLY.

And the reason you would do this, Phatty? Judging by the notoriety of the landmark, wouldn't you be afraid someone would have a camera?! Hey look Mildred...some guys got the bull's nutz on his head- can you imagine that! quick...get the camera- the guys at the Elks Lodge are going to love that!

You keeellll me Phatty!!!

Right on Phatty,
Seems alot like where we live up here. I'm sure I'd have alot of fun on my KTM dual sport but I might be a little nervous with my wife on her TTR 125. IMO Northern Cali has got to be one of the coolest most beutiful places on earth. Too bad the only way your allowed to enjoy these places is in a pair of Birkenstocks inbetween the 3 Toed Salamander and Fire Bellied Frog breeding seasons. Lets all join the The Blue Ribbon Coalition, Tread Lightly, pack our trash, and take back our native land.
Phil and Erin

Matter of fact, you're not even allowed to Mountain-Bike through most of the redwood grove preserves, like Rockefeller Forest, Founders Grove, Prairie Creek, Fern Canyon, and the like. But that is the most fun. When I was a youngin we biked through all those places.

It can be pouring rain out, and you will barely get wet under the redwood canopy while you ride. There's an occasional bull elk standing in the trail, babbling brooks, ferns, hardly any people, all under 200 foot old growth redwood trees. Total, trippy, tranquillity baby.

At least that's what I heard. If you're into that sort of thing.

That was around the same time in my life when we would pull over on our way home from morning surf to see who could hold themselves off the ground longest by clinging to Babe's Big Blue Nutz.
