    That's alcohol abuse! You're going to shake that stuff up! Who's bringing the limes?

    The photo is taken somewhere around Aliso Woods, and the mountain is the Clevelands (Trabuco area).

    And if the weed is from ''the Trabuco area'' it is much better than the Corona....

    I've often looked at those peaks wondering which one is the peak of Old Camp, Black Star, Trabuco, etc...I still don't know which one is which from a distance....Heck, from Foothill Ranch, I can't even identify anything. I guess I should break out some topo maps to check for peak altitudes.

    Nice rack, btw. I can't believe I just said that to a guy.

    The highest mountain is Saddleback an is approx 5600 ft. From the saddle between the two peaks, you take a rugged single track down to Old Camp then continue on downward via the Santiago truck Trail to the Luge (a popular SoCal ride).

    BTW: I've always prided myself on my rack ... whatch it dude, this is SoCal!!!!

    No.... just stock pedals. I don't feel like ripping my legs up should one break... which they sometimes do!
