Me +2 not staying at the expo as shade is scarce we are planing on camping at one of the nearby sites or dry (not sure yet depends on fire restrictions) last year was a blast and have been looking forward to this year since the kickstand went up last year. If anyone needs info about camping or nearby trails let me know we know the area pretty well.

I'm assuming cell phone reception is non existent at Mormon Lake? I haven't been to the Mormon Lake venue yet.

I guess I'll have to coordinate with my friends that are coming in from other areas to monitor their ham radios on pre-planned radio frequencies.

Thanks campbell3736, I have trucked the backroads years ago from Clintswell, there was a little store with fuel and limited groceries, do you know if thats still there? If not is there another place without having to go into Flag? Would you camp in the Double or Dairy Springs area or somewhere along FR240, 132A or others? I'm really familiar with the White Mtns backcountry areas, not so much the Flag vicinity....

The non-brand name gas station is still there. They have diesel and unleaded. The cafe next door is still open.

I'm riding down from Anacortes, camping at the N Rim on Thurs the 16th.

Bringing the new model of the welded, gasketed GS toolbox along, probably have it at the AdvMoto booth.

Verizon has good coverage, Sprint has marginal coverage.

take FS rd240 east, good graded dirt, to FS 90, right, south, to venue.
Route sounds interesting, thanks for sharing! I don't think Tiffany Coates will make it, she's bummed. But what a line-up!

How do you get to meet people, see cool stuff, and get time to ride? Can it all fit in?

I'm heading up Thursday pm from Tucson. Gonna stay with my wife in Flag as well.
Google says about 45 mins to Expo from there. Trailering the GS so she has transport during the weekend.
Looking forward to RawHyde class and what I get to see of the expo!
I'll have to take notes from this thread as to who will be where and we can make intros.

Thinking of the return Home south, I was wondering if any of you have taken the 300 rim road from 87 and Baker Butte cutoff, east to Woods Canyon Lake @ the 260? And then crossing 260 and continuing east on 300 to Pinetop-Lakeside through the Res? If so, how long would you estimate that takng in saddle time hours?
