Original Thread:

I need to get a head count of everyone that intends to do the entire three days.

Even if you already sent me an email please reply to this post to confirm "in or out". Please only reply if you are 95% sure you are attending.

Sorry, the route will not be given out (please don't ask) if you are not ridding all three days this year. There will be no day riders (sorry) but you must commit to ridding the entire three days in order to join us and get this year's route and info.

All ridding partners must also email me a seperate request, no groups larger than 3.

Once I get all confirmed entries I will send out confirmation info including the route, suggested campsites (I may purchase some group sites depending on turn-out), etc.

This is a self-guided gps ride and there will be no large groups (groups limited to 3 bikes at a time) and it will not be a personally guided tour. I will actually be leaving with sweep riders about an hour or so after everyone else.

Keep in mind this is a 1000 mile "off-road/road ride", please only skilled riders and expert gps navigators need attend. Ridding a 1000 mile route is not a good way to first learn how to use your gps or ride in deep sand.

Please confirm in/out, more details will follow via email.

I myself honestly would love to run this if I could run just the last day. With gas prices rising, I dont want to ride to North Jersey (if thats where it starts, as it has in the past) Riding the last day in the area around where I live would be enjoyable. Also, beings I dont have money for GPS, I can ride the entire last section without GPS, I know where it goes.
I think you would see alot more interest if you opened it up to single day riders such as myself, who have various reasons for only wanting to ride for a single day.
Work is also a big factor for me, I can only have off on Saturday, Sunday and Mondays.

If you change your mind about allowing single day riders, feel free to contact me.

I agree with 06wrx, I'm in school that week and can't make the friday start, but would love to try and join the mid-southern section on saturday and sunday. I don't have a GPS either but have memorized the sections 5 thru 6 of the '07 trail, just from multiple visits, its a fun ride. I actually use pat of it as my commute home from work... but under the circumstances I can't make the whole ride or guarentee my time of arrival either. I'm sure it will be a great ride for those that have the time.

Kudos to Rob23 and all that made my ride home from work so fun. I originally planned to save gas and now my ride home takes twice as long, but I've never been so happy after my commute home... cheers

Should I ever make it an official santioned ride I will support day riders but now I intentially want to keep the attedence low.

This year's routes are entirely different from last year's.

In regards to ridding without a GPS. A set of tires costs more than a GPS! Two trips to the gas station cost more than a GPS. So, stop making excuses and just buy one already. Motorcycling is an expensive sport to begin with. Riders spent tons of money on gear, tires, tricked out parts to ride faster so why cheap out and not get a gps to really enjoy where you ride. Garmin eTrex Legend Cx costs $150 for a refurbished unit (good as new) from I'm not charging anything for the ride, camping or the routes so take that money you just saved and buy a gps!

p.s. your welcome for the nice route home..
