Sweet set o' Dual Sport Roads !
Empty rough two-track dirt-only on the edge of Wilderness,
and empty smooth two-lane forest pavement.

Our DS bikes get to enjoy the best of both worlds on one ride in one day.
Unplated dirtbikes and cruisers don't know what fun they're missing.

Anyone reading this is invited

Hood River Upper Valley Rally ??

I'm hosting a small 10-20 person ADV ride/BBQ/campfire/campover-in-the-yard gig
at my house near Parkdale on the October Weekend of the 8th & 9th.

I'm plotting a series of rides from Pavement, to Dual Sport, to Dirtbike (OHV Pass required, if it rains good and they open it back up).
Several self-guided GPS tracks and maps and one good DS ride guided by me (on 990).
Lemme know if you want a paper map with route hand-written, and I'll get one ahead of time @ the Forest Service for $5

Plenty of tent space (5 acres) (even indoors in Garage and storage if it rains)

All Food for breakfast & coffee, lunch, and BBQ dinner !! will be handled by my wife and I,
with small donations accepted only just to cover our food costs,
so nobody has to haul extra food and stove stuff.

Come on up !! . Anytime Saturday, or even Friday evening.
PM me for addy & phone #s

- Jeff

damn

Sounds like fun for sure. Apple house has a hell of a view and it well smack dab in some great slab and of course right next to the never ending trails of The Hood. I'll be on the road of course getting home 3 days after your done unless you get some hard core ADV'ers.

Have fun all...

I really like what your are trying to do. I'm just not sure about how you are trying to do it. It's been a pressure working with you and the pleasure was all yours. If you need me I'll call ya..

Not that I'm a wuss, but I'm a wuss.



If I show, I will commute- my tent is in the shop.

To simplify doubt in the headcount for food, figure me as a no-show. If I make it, I can eat on the way to/from.

Day-um. Never check the long range. Usually just sprinkles here

There IS plenty of Trailer & M-Home space.

In FACT....
I have an old beater Motorhome (that runs good and looks...well...,OK ),
that I ripped out all the convertible bed/table/couch crap,
built a platform and it has a normal & proper Queen-Size Matress, with clean sheets, and a HEATER.
I've already given you dibs on it, Mort

Several ADVers have spent the night in it, even Easy-Z; it's our "Guest Suite"
We'll get food last minute, so we can plan for whatever.

I am interested in this ride. I have some logistics to figure out and have been lusting for a chance to ride over there.

If it is like that, it just means the trails will be open and dust free.

Indeed too far away to say, but I have heard that it has rained in October, before.

But, you are right, there's nothing quite like a dust-free trail.

Might as well toss a coin and look at your horiscope to guess the weather that far in advance.
And yes, we're hoping trails will be open by then, I'll keep y'all posted.
