25 March 2007 

We had a great time riding over Elephant Head.  Weather was perfect and the trail was tough Balf Walker, Brick Miller and Jim Strang meet at Iron Horse Motorcycles at 10 am and road to the Longhorn Grill looking for other riders.  At 11 am Jim lead us up and down the frontage road a couple of time until we found the correct road leading to the forest service road to Patagonia.  Three water crossings, several desert cars and some very loose, ruff road later we made it to Home Plate for a late lunch.
