Greetings from the Eastern Sierra

Hello,

I've been visiting this website for several years now and would like to thank everyone for the great pool of information and knowledge available here. Many times I have found answers to help me along my two wheeled adventures and would like to start giving back.

My home turf is the fabulous Eastern Sierra of California. In the past three decades I have come to know these wild lands very well, traveling on foot, bicycle, ski, 4x4 and motorcycle discovering secret treasures along the way. The region in a true wonder of geology, from the high peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the low sinks of Death Valley, the scale and variety of terrain is simply amazing.

Last fall I began an adventure exploring food and it's history in the region, Inyo County in particular, all while traveling to and fro on my dual sport motorcycle. I am having a blast and would like to share it with the members of HU as well. A link to my blog is shown below.

If anyone has any questions about this part of the world, or has plans to visit, please contact me and I will offer any assistance I can.

Thanks again for all the great information and entertainment available here.
