Minnesota North Shore Shindig 2013
Welcome to the home of the Minnesota North Shore Shindig!
-"Where riding slow is fine, and fasters finer."
What: Shindig 2013
When: July 11-14th 2013
Where: Wildhurst Campground (Finland, MN) Directions here. Wildhurst's Facebook page here.
Info: The Shindig has outgrown my humble hillside, so for 2013 we will be organizing at the Wildhurst Campground near Finland, MN. For many of the returning Shindigians, you will remember the Wildhurst from 2012. I have been working closely with the Wildhurst Campground owner Leroy, and I ask that everyone please follow the directions below and help us make this a smooth event. Once again, there will be no sign up fee for the Shindig, the goal is to keep it simple and focus on riding. However, the Wildhurst is a business and they have a modest camping fee that I think you will find is very reasonable, especially considering there are hot showers, toilets and a bar on site for the evening hours. The Wildhurst has some of the best pizza's and coldest beers around. As the Shindig nears, we'll look for some volunteers to help make dinner and campfire Stew!!! (MNRider you listening?)
Signing Up: Signing up is as simple as One...Two!
1. I will be tallying another "IN" list for 2013 so we have a rough idea how many to expect. Please drop a note on this thread or send me a PM and I'll add you to the in list.
2. After step 1, call the Wildhurst campground (218-353-7337) to reserve your tent/car/RV space (see below for tent rates). Be sure to tell them you are reserving for the Shindig to get the special rate! That's it. Leroy, the Wildhurst Campgrounds owner, will take money upon arrive, no need to prepay.
Wildhurst Camping Rates: Leroy and I worked out a deal for the Thursday - Sunday weekend as follows:
A. Tent Sites: $12 / day per tent (Two up riders get a great deal)
B. Car Campers: $18 / day --If you show up with a four wheel vehicle the price goes up because he has to put you in a different location.
C. Full RV Sites: $30 / day
Routes: For 2013, we will be providing GPX files of the Superior National Forest. Thanks to Cannonshot, you can download the GPX files below and bench ride through the long winter. Keep coming back throughout the spring, we are actively updating these routes. The hope is, we can break up into smaller groups and ride the terrain that best suites our bikes and skill. I will have a laptop at the campground with Garmin Basecamp software if people need help transfering route to their GPS.
Update 11-07-2012: Cannonshot's Route Guide For Shindig '13 here. Now go bench ride all winter long!

The "In" List:

Sounds good to me!
I can get there from Waconia.
I suggest you pm anyone that replies and keep a list so that when it gets closer it is easy to communicate.
I forget to check back on these threadsd sometimes.

Fantastic view! I think this could be a really fun event.
Please keep in mind that many of us will be at the Hiawatha Rally the first weekend of June.

I want to go to this but June is already very busy. Maybe a little mid week diversion for some of us.
It's only far, if you don't go

Bummer for me. I'm tied up in late June. Living in Grand Marais now and on the North Shore for 30+ years, I surely have some good ideas of where to go. I also have a new to me "tip over motorcycle" that's much more appropriate for gnarly roads, and I need to get it dirty. Have fun you guys.
