Fall Colors Ride Oct 2013

Update: 11Oct2013

Same concept as last year:

Who: Good people who ride motorbikes

What: Show up, ride, camp, eat, drink, be merry, have a good time, (hopefully not in your tent)

Where (FINAL ANSWER): Calaveras Big Trees State Park


When:
Weather / Tree Color Dependent
Primary: October: 18-20
Alternate: Oct 25-27


If the weather is truly supposed to be shit on the primary date, we will reschedule to the alternate date. Be flexible, its worth it.

This is 95% unorganized. It is a modified 'Farm Rules' event. No shirts, no pins, no food, no swag, no strippers.

This is not an ADV organized ride/event. I will not be there to greet you and hold your hand to set up your camp or your ride. Usually about 20 of us show up, we share camp sites, and just ride motorbikes and enjoy each others company.


ALSO;
Sorry for the sketchyness all year. After breaking my foot in May I am only about 6 weeks into riding again. My foot is still pretty swollen and I can just now fit my foot into a proper riding boot. I had hope to ride a bit this summer and scout out a good place for us to do this, but but this was a shitty year for me, riding wise.

Anyhoo, see you bastiges at Calaveras Big Trees. For those that don't know, for the last 2 events we have been somewhere between campgrounds 61 and 65. IF you show up and site 65 is nice, take it. I have a handicapped placard and can legally use that site. othewise, stick with what we know.

The motivation

The Plumas NF ares is generally at 4-5k'. Thus we should be able to stay generally dry, warm, and have lots of options for riding dirt or street.

I called the ranger at Plumas NF and right now, only 3 grounds will remain open for sure, but more may stay open assuming there is no snow accumulation.

I will keep my eye on this site and keep track of what sites will be avail.
Plumas NF Recreation Status
http://www.fs.usda.gov/recmain/plumas/recreation

Right now, no sites will have water. At all. So, we are roughing it a bit this year.
Deanes Valley

Snake Lake
Gold Lake

So, plan on the event taking place in the Plumas Nat'l forest. A final location will be selected based on on whats open.

The upside is that the camping will likely be FREE!!!!

Gimpy is lame I don't want to hang out with him. I'll show up for the rest of you nice folks, though.

I like the idea of the remote location- more so the better.`89o0l;

I'm also too lazy to read the thread right now, so what is the status of getting to have fires?

Oh yeah, the boss, the baby, and the mutts will be in attendance. If I get lucky, I'll bring the 450 and look at it longingly.

Last year Hollywood did a stellar job of protecting Gimpy from the killer raccoons, so we should be very safe. HA!

EDIT #2. Well, it looks like the boss won't be able to make it either weekend, so I'll be either running with the Cujo and his brother and possibly little man. Let me know if I need to bring the camper and it can easily handle the cooking duties and I think the battery can last a day or so for the fridge.

By the list so far, you might want to rename it "Fall Gimpfest"

I'm in. I vote to try the Grover hot springs camp at Markleeville. I stayed there last year (though they closed for repairs during OUR ride). Nice spot.. good riding, showers, etc. Food/booze nearby.
