Dinner - I'll leave that up to the group. What am I...a darn nanny?

I'll vote for Saladinos - Andrei's special Meatballs on BMW pants was a hit

Nice young folks bought it a couple years ago..about 15 miles from the auto road I would guess. Nice pool....and the guy delivers all the crap you really don't want to put on your bike to the site for you.

Are you just doing the sunrise, or is there some kind of ride planned? Big bike or small bike? Just one night - correct?



Either way, it sounds like a nice idea.
Being two-up, if the weather looks shitty, I'll be using one of the alternate dates as a backup.... if it were just me, I wouldn't care.

My double cheeseburger and I are offended by that remark.

We should do a round of confirmations who is in and who is out by Friday. So, please check in here, post where you are meeting and when, and we'll do a headcount.

At this point, the two sites for 8 adults are there, with my site confirmed as CJ+1, NewhampWoodsRider arriving late, and myself leaving Fitzy at 8am.

Hello Mr. Tourguide.
Is this an open invitation? This sounds like a good way to spend the weekend. I don't have the skills to open your GPS file to view your route, but I would imagine you'd be coming close to Hillsboro? If it's ok I'd like to join you. As others have said, this would probably be a bit much to do on a WR, so that leaves me wrestling the pig ('99 Valkyrie) which it, and I, are not afraid of the mud. I've been up the Auto Road several times on it and down countless roads that it doesn't belong on so I feel comfy doing something like this. You, however, may not. If you don't want a wild card riding with you I certainly understand, and I don't want you to feel obligated just because I asked. I can certainly find my way to the rock pile if that's the case. Otherwise, I'm in.

Jr.

The more the merrier. There is an FJR 2-up going along, so why not Valkyrie You can alwasy ride the go-around with the FJR if it comes to that - I doubt it will.

The only concern is campground. The two sites I books are pretty full, so you may want to make your own reservation. We have sites 18 and 34. If you call the park, you can make a reservation there for a site next to us. I'm sure someone else will be along to split the cost of the site with you, if you so desire.

I think the closest to Hilsborough will be passing on Henniker-Warner Road, if that works for you. You could meet us there, or in Warner. I'm thinking Lunchstop in Foothills could be a good option.

If you want to open the GPX file, go to GPSvisualizer.com, upload the file, and select your output of choice - Google earth works well.

Excellent!

Site #33 is also reserved. The nice lady on the phone did mention that while four people are allowed per site, only two tents and two vehicles are allowed at each site ?!?

If it works for you I'll meet you at the intersection of Rush and Warner roads in Henniker, 8:15ish ?

I am still in and meeting you in Fitzwilliam at 8am. Rouge Ranger and I will probably just share a tent as we usually do at the rallies. Unless he really doesn't want to.

I'm in Henry, will meet you guys on the North end of Sandwich Notch Road and ride the rest of way with you cats. Pilothouse can give me a jingle with your estimated eta from along the way and I'll be there. I will share a tent with him as well, since he made the offer. Good to have an ADV rider in the family! Route looks good and any bike should be able to do the Mt Clinton Jefferson Notch stuff unless it pours rain. We can also sneak across the Pinkham B Road of of Route 2 in Randolph in the early morning if you like which dumps you out on Route 16 at Dolly Copp Campground a couple of miles from the Auto Road.

8:15? We are leaving Fitzwilliam around that time, so I don't think we'll hit Henniker-Warner until about 3 hrs later....

I think it would be best exchanging cell numbers via PM and us calling the rest along the way. Send me your number and let me know how long in advance I should call you to get to the meeting spot.

As for the nice lady, last year we had four tents on one site????

I've been following along quietly and wanted to say that I'm looking forward to meeting you all at the Auto Road the morning of the 30th and having a nice breakfast after. While I would love to see a 2-up FJR and Valkyrie off-road, I have other obligations Saturday.
