OCBR (sort of) WA style 2012

Right, i've been thinking.

What i've got in mind is a bike orientated get away that is "family friendly". Wives kids etc etc.

Let me explain. We ride to said destination as per any other ADV ride, whilst the rest of the tribe get there by what ever means. We all play happy campers for a weekend and bingo, job done. Somewhere where we could maybe shoot off for trail ride during the day but not too far from civilisation so the non riders can amuse themselves in the mean time.

Now I realise that this could be worlds colliding and not for everyone so feel free to shoot me down if this is a no go. But I thought i'd flag the idea to see what the inmates think.

At this stage i'm thinking somewhere in the South West, possibly where last years no name was held, sometime in early November.

Any interest?

What..

The good wife said, "No way" I go riding with the boys so she can have time at home without me.
I can go alone and do the male bonding thing she said.

Sounds good to me Neil. My wife and kids would be keen.

We could all do a Watesy's style adventure ride too - have the missus bring everything down in the car...

I don't think you can beat that Bridgetown oval location either.

Thumb Good idea

Pemberton caravan park makes a nice base, chalets, tent sites, open fireplaces, great trail riding and more importantly a very good bakery.

Seems a bit of interest.

There is a long weekend at the beginning of October, Queens Birthday , but public holidays are a double edged sword. Especially down the SW. Busier than a one armed paper boy. So for that reason, and so we have a better chance of it being dry/warm, how does November 4/5 sound?

Location, location, location. Caravan parks are all well and good but its hard to go past the oval near Briggie where we had last years no name. My original thought was to have it at Cave Hill but I thought that might be a bit far and a bit isolated for a family camping thing. It might limit who would be able to participate. I'm actually down in Briggie next week so I'll check with the council.

These are just thought bubbles at the moment and i'm open to suggestions. I'm also happy to do the leg work along the lines of what Rick did for us last year.
