Counting down the days.
New this year, we've added a pure street ride to the event, it will take place on Saturday while the rest of us are eating dirt. Details for the street ride can be found on bamarides.com.
We're having a Sausage Fest Friday night....Anybody that's interested, bring your favorite sausage, chips, etc and we'll grill them up.

if you are not a member of Bamarides and dont want to join. Let me know, I will give them your head count.

The guy putting on the BBQ has asked for donations but is not setting a hard price. let your consience be your guide. but he needs a head count for planning.

Almost done with the route planning, just gotta ride it to collect the turn-by-turn mileage.
We are planning to have route sheets available.

Be aware that the closest gas station to the camp is 18 miles away. I will have a vehicle there if we need to haul supplies.
There will be a gas stop fairly early along the route, so small tank guys shouldn't have any problem.

Drive the route yesterday, 55 miles, lunch, then 62 miles. Found a couple of really fun dirt roads I had never been on.
Camping is $5 per night, btw.

I bought a one person tent the other night at Dicks.
It was $90, Koppen Lokal is the name. It's pretty roomy, weighs like 2lbs and sets up super easy.

http://www.koppenoutdoor.com/product...-17273376.html

I can't find any reviews on it but it seems pretty decent, very light although quite thin. The stitches on the seams seem to be pretty decent, I don't see why it wont be good for light occasional use.

I think I am going to take my WR250R instead of the Tiger, looking at past events I think wrestling around the Tiger with its street biased tires might be the definition of anti-fun!

Alrighty...me and Kaleb rode the entire route, made a couple of changes along the way. I have turn by turn directions, much like a roll chart, if anybody wants the files ahead of time, just let me know.
