Hood River Valley Rally: October 4th - 7th

Well, last year's teaser was a success,
so Mustangshelly and I decided to host again this year

This is a rider's rally first and foremost,
...with the campfire sessions each evening,
and LOTS of food and fun.

I want to share our excellent riding experience with you all
Tent space galore on our place a few miles outside of Parkdale, Oregon.
Plenty of inside & covered space for those that don't wanna bring tents, and don't mind the sound of snoring.
Plenty of Truck and Trailer space, and Motorhome/Toyhauler space, too.
There's two B&Bs within 3 miles in Parkdale to help entice MortimerSickle to come,
and Motels/Hotels are 16 miles away in Hood River.
...and if Mr Cob comes, we'll have to wheel THAT monster setup in first !!

Invitation rules: You are all invited, even all of you FFs.
Come from near, come from far,...just make it here.
No costs, unless you wanna pitch in for food.
Simple rules, eh?

Food will be a combo of pot-luck, so bring whatever you want....
Breakfasts will be all PotLuck, we'll use the house stove, and I'll set-up 2 Waffle Irons.
We have a BIG charcoal grill, a classic campground-type campfire grilltop, and a Propane Weber for all to use.

We'll also provide 3 dinners (Thur/Fri/Sat) for those that wish to ride here, and/or want to avoid bring food,
....but we'll passing the hat to cover our minimal food costs,
(we're talking just $3-$5 per meal, here...)
....Thursday Night: Fajitas, of course,...
....Friday: Taco Bar (soft, taco shells, and/or Taco Salad)
....and Saturday,...BBQ "Lots-O-Stuff", with..."The Sauce" !!


The Hood River Valley Rally begins Thursday afternoon, October 4th, but come anytime you want Thursday.
This will allow TWO full days of GREAT riding for Friday and Saturday.
And Mustangshelly has offered to lead a Ladie's Ride, to keep everyone happy !!
Then, on Sunday, October 7th sometime....GO AWAY!! (...or spend the night if you need to )

I will have pre-traced out FS Ranger District maps.
They are the BEST for showing all the little stuff.
Hood River and Barlow Ranger Districts are our local Districts.

I will have plenty of these Ranger District maps ahead of time,
they are only $5ea and make GREAT souvineers.
I'll have these maps here with traced routes of whatever type of riding you want.
Or,...just follow me.....

It's as varied as you want.
Beautiful paved only loops, easy gravel groomers,
and loose rocky fun stuff with a creek crossing at the bottom.

Dawg, I love living here

Thanks, Katy!

I will pick up any amount of Ranger District maps that you want ahead of time,

PayPal please.

This rest of this space is reserved for ride planning.....
GPS tracks to come.....
And of course, Jeff will be leading rides, so no one has to ride on their own. You & your bike may not make it back in one piece, but hey, isn't that what adventure riding is all about??
