A Stop at Base Camp Alpha



Returning from Las Vegas, I took a few days to help establish the site of Jim Hyde's "Base Camp Alpha", near Trona, California. Jim (pictured pointing to the arsenic sign) created "RawHyde Adventures", the motorcycle training program that I attended in 2005, prior to my "Americas Trip".

"RawHyde Adventures" has recently been designated an official BMW off-road training center, one of nine worldwide. Jim plans to establish "base camps" throughout the Mojave Desert and Eastern California, from which training expeditions will be conducted.

At the end of the week, the small group assembled for a photo at the nearby Ruth Mine.
