IRON GARDEN GETAWAY (pt.5/5)

(That's Sid. He won the raffle pot... 100% of the raffle money collected went to the last raffle winner!)

Last post for the Iron Garden Getaway (hosted by the Inland Empire Rides on IG)
Super fun FREE campout on BLM land near Barstow at Slash X Ranch Cafe (at least that was the nearest landmark) and the Yermo Run into town to visit local bars and mingle with the native desert folk. Lee's Tavern in Yermo was my highlight of the ride, coldest beer I've ever had and at only $1.80 a pop, the cheapest too (minus some happy hours locally) but historic in the sense that it was straight out of 1977 and had the dust to prove it. Lee's evidently is grandfathered in so they can also sell bottled liquor and you can carry it home... Huge thanks to Nick and Rich for putting this event on and allowing everyone the chance to come together as friends in the desert for FREE camping and riding. The way it used to be, the way it should be. No wristbands to buy, No vendors, No profiteers trying to get rich.
