WARPED X - What Do We Want To Do?
 
WARPED has been a Kernville event for the last 9 years. We want your feedback on what to do for WARPED X.


This is a simple poll asking if you want to return to MRA for another year. Please keep in mind the amenities that are available to us at the MRA location.
- Local/close shopping and food
- Flush toilets and showers
- Lots of trails
- Amphitheater
- Group meal if we want (this might be a negative but we've had some good meals in the past).
- Central California location


Poll (this is a public poll, folks will see how you voted)
Do you want to return to Kernville for Warped 10
Y/N
Please give us some comments as to why you answered the way you did.


(If you have not attended this event in years past, or do not intend on going this year, please do not vote. Thank you.)

IMHO Warped IS a Kernville event. I haven't missed one yet although I only showed for a day for a couple of them.

Let the arguing begin.

Um.:huh

I volunteered to run WARPED given the expectation that its my show.

I am not planning on having it at WRA.

The intent will be, at least for WARPED X, will be to shift back towards ADVENTURE riding. i.e. load up your bike, ride somewhere, set up camp, ride around for the weekend, have a good time.

We have been riding that area for 9 years. Time to change it up.

I don't have interest in organizing the same thing we have been doing for 9 years unless all other options have been exhausted.


Yes, I am throwing this

Well, at least that's out there now. :lol3


Let's see what the attendees want, ok? If they want to stay at Kernville, as I do, that's where WARPED X should be. If you want to do something different, that's great.


If everyone who has attended WARPED wants to change it, great. But let's let them decide. :deal

some considerations...
  • MRA has clean hot showers
  • the Kern River canyon is an arid area with generally mild weather in mid April
  • Kernville Brewing Company!

Cant believe I am saying this...
 
But I have to agree with Yeti on this one. It always has been a Kernville event so there is the tradition.

But that aside it is centrally located, tends to have good riding that time of year which is harder to find further north and heading south makes it harder for the NCAL folk to attend due to greater distance.

So...

Location, time of year and amenities all add up to it being the proper and best choice for the event that I can think at this time.

My .02

And I see your gauntlet...

If your opinion is the 1 that counts then just do it.

I wouldnt ride any further south,too far as it is on slab.:1drink Its only your show if your the only one going.

Damn! Not a glove, but a gauntlet. An F'n metal one at that! Well, since it's Gilla, theme gotta be Hookers and Hookahs. So I guess we better stage somewhere near Nevada.

JStory 10-01-2013 10:27 AM

Can I vote yes and no?:D. I am not opposed to moving, but I like the amenities(showers, restrooms, groceries, etc.). I enjoy riding and camping, but have no interest in being uncomfortable.
The central location of MRA is a plus.

If you want it to be a true adventure ride event, it has to be in a different place every night. And also a place a truck or motor home can't get into.

Until someone identifies another location with the amenities you and I (and others) enjoy, no.

I like MRA because of what it offers. (Plus John is a great guy.) If someone proposes somewhere else that offers everything MRA offers and is in a central location, I may be good with that. No one has done that at this time.

I think GillaFunk is looking for somewhere that trailers/campers/toy haulers can't go. In other words, if you don't ride in, you can't come. He'll let me know if I'm wrong.

The thing is, Kernville is right at the door of endless Adventure and dirt riding,Jawbone is across the street which leads to darn near anywhere you want to go in the desert,as it is I spend as much time on the road as I would at the event in MRA.
Lots of dirt riding available but I dont see a lot of ADV'ers taking advantage of it. Hauling my 530 there would be really fun but more days would be involved.
