Gregg, I am a 'fresh noob' looking for leisure ride to soak in the views.

If you want to lead a Ballarat, Wildrose, Aguerbery Pt. ride on Sat., I will mark it out on a map for you. It is a very easy route to find and follow. Well marked with signs, etc.

Donations Update

A few more donations to add to the gold mine:

Dirt Bagz Products
One voucher for a set of Ranger Bags and brackets to fit your bike
http://www.dbzproducts.com/specs.htm

These are pretty popular and robust soft bags, with a basic metal bracket to keep them from rubbing on your exhaust. My Dad used these on our ride down the Continental Divide Trail. Here he is in the Montana section:


Riseful
RollPro (GoPro camera and accessories organizer)
Another good donation from a new company by fellow ADV inmate michael.brat, from his company Riseful. He is donating one RollPro, a well thought out organizer for all of you GoPro aficionados.

This raffle keeps getting better and better!

Do I have that right?
Yes. When you pay, you can make a request for a camp spot. If it's not taken, it's your.
I put the camp spot numbers next to your name on the "In List" you can check on the 1st page.


Certain restrictions applies (of course)
1. You have to be staying 3 nights (you cant make a request if you are staying 1 or 2 nights)
2. They have to be other than assigned organizer's sites (#45 thru #49)

Wicked another donation, more rides

Paid today. Thanks, Joel et all!

Three things, first I was going to donate a copy of Adobe Premier Pro, but I think that got missed in the list?

Second, I added two rides I'm willing to lead. One is the Chloride-Titus thing, but Friday instead of Saturday. The second is Darwin on Sunday morning. If they don't get much interest, I might cancel them, but I'll talk to anyone who is interested before doing that. PM me if you sign up, so I can get to know you before hand?

Also, I'll be camped with Seth (lifeofreilly) and the Adobe crew in RV spot #2. Come by to chat in person once we're there.

Last, I will be riding in, the plan as of now is to do an IBA style blast on Wednesday. My route is Bellingham WA to PSR via I-5, 97, and 395. It will be my first IBA ride, so if you want to give me pointers, feel free. That route is simply what Mr.Goog says is shortest, I'm not sure if the linking route between I-5 and 395 is IBA friendly, or if it has too much traffic.

Anyway.... see you there!

addtnl Hunter Mt. ride?

Quote:
Hunter MT Noob Group Ride .... maybe adding another
A thought... if my offer for a duplicate Chloride loop on Friday isn't popular, I'd be willing to switch and take an overflow group on the Hunter Mt - Teakettle - Racetrack loop. Not sure how to track if a full ride would take more people if possible, other than comments here? We can work it out, I'm sure.

Also, for either of the rides I posted, I'd be glad to take more than 12 if a non-noob can help me as a sweep and general mayhem resolver.

Just let me know. As long as there's some moto involved, I kind of don't care what I'm doing.

395 has a couple of 7000 - 8000 foot passes and many miles over 6000 feet of elevation between the NV state line and the turn off for 190 into Death Valley. They could be seriously snowed in or even closed in late March. Have a plan "B" ready.

The 95 south through NV to the 6 into Bishop will get you around the highest passes on 395, might add mileage though.

Weather in late spring is a crap-shoot for the high deserts of Oregon and Nevada. You could be basking in the Sunny 60's or fighting freezing rain and 35 degrees.

If you need a bail out overnighter in Eugene... PM me.

If you wish I can increase the number of riders for this route as long as you will commit to leading one half of them if more join up. It wouldn't be good to have to deal with 30 riders in one group. Too spread out and too many chances for problems Just let me know and I'll make changes in the description and number.

Park rules limit back country groups to a maximum of 15 persons, 15 pack animals (motorcycles IMHO) and 6 vehicles. I strongly suggest you limit a ride to 14 to stay within those guidelines (14 sign ups and the leader = 15)
