It's OK. You have a tight haircut and some wicked mutton chops. One bike, however leaky will getcha through.

You gonna do the Magalloway road and climb the fire tower? I used to deer hunt all over that area. Also, Lake Francis state park as you probably already know would be an awesome base camp with full services.

It's here, with info: http://www.reserveamerica.com/campin...ex=CampingSpot

Located in Connecticut Lakes State Forest, adjacent to the Connecticut River between Second and Third Connecticut lakes, Deer Mountain Campground is just five minutes south of the Canadian border and 13 miles from Lake Francis. It is adjacent to the stretch of Route 3 north of Pittsburg, referred to as Moose Alley, which makes it a prime location for moose viewing. The 25-site primitive campground with 24 sites available by reservation and one for first-come/first-served campers. Each site has a fireplace, picnic table, flat area for a tent, and a parking space.
Deer Mountain Campground provides a great base for organized youth groups that want to explore the north country. Reservations for youth group camping are required and be made by calling 603-271-3556 ext 402.

Plenty of Russians coming along. Piet, yesh, gavoreet, koureet, OK?

Attempting to put through a legal route for the fall. If I can hook Cedar Stream up to the Magalloway/Aziscohos/Parmacheenee roads I'd be well pleased. Many gates to cross.

Endless Summer

Wow. Quite a weekend. If you can survive the first few hours of a pre-run, you're good for the next 175 off-road miles or so. We were missing Guymanbro in the mud 'n' the blood and the beer.

You know when you say "Screw it, I'm not going back through THAT?" It wasn't an actual road on the map. . .

It's been raining a touch. Things were a trifle wet in spots.

We put together a northern New Hampshire route that is pretty sweet; high-speed gravel with only the slightest gnarly tech section which opens up a whole passel of new options for the fall.

Pics and vids coming.

Sounds like I missed a great time! I've always wanted to explore that area better. How did Andre like his new DRZ? Looking forward to all the details.

More Rather Ordinary Pics

We busted up to the Bill Sladyk WMA Friday evening. It's a primitive campsite, but is also completely free. There's a pit crapper, a great deal of level ground, a little fire ring, and not much else. You need to pack in water or bring a filter. There's plenty of water around, but it needs to be filtered or treated before use.

There is a pipe-rail gate just before the campsite, with an easy go-around on the left. It's big bike friendly if you have any sort of tires and skills. If you don't, leave your bike on one of the many clearings before that. You're the only person for miles. No one's gong to touch your bike. It's a simple hike in on flat terrain.

Here's what you get: pit crapper. There was a roll of mouse-eaten bumwad that would have served in a pinch, but I suggest bringing yours.





The crapper is heavily armored against porkies!

If you bring a hatchet or a saw, there's plenty of downed wood around. There was a bear den and a couple of deadfalls that kept us happy for the night.

Just inside the gate, there's a large, flat area that's fairly easy to pitch up on. The soil's stony, if your tent isn't free-standing.

The Bill Sladyk WMA and the Kingdom National Forest (formerly the infamous Hippie commune known as Earth Peoples Park) are right up against the Canadian border. There's a good selection of trails and abandoned roads, but many are gated at seemingly random intervals. We ran one snowmobile/ATV trail that was pure soup. It would have been better in a dry month. As it was, things were pretty deep. We ended up on the wrong side of a gate, which was luckily high enough to push under.

The camping area is marked by the green point, the gate by red.

We ate a good burger in Stewartstown, NH, and proceeded up toward Lake Francis and the Cedar Stream Road. Masses of glittering V-Twin chrome was passing up NH 3. We were gritty, dirty, and stank of sweat, wet gear, and wood smoke. We shouted "Feel the wind, bro!" to every passing hog.

We were pretty satisfied with our style points.



Needs detailing and the chrome polished:



As does this one:



When we picked this one up from inmate MWValley a day before, it was so sanitary you could have performed surgery on any part of it. Sorry, Jeff.

New Pre-Runner in Da House!

In case you all haven't figured it out, the format of the RedNEK Rendezvous is thus:

On Friday, we all show up from various places and camp and eat. On Saturday, we stagger awake, eat brekkie, and do a reasonably mellow (on our terms, as I've heard "I've never ridden so fast on dirt") big-bike run of around 200 miles on as much gravel and dirt as possible. We're pretty sure of the size of our testes and ovaries. We have nothing to prove. I can tell you from personal experience that riding in an ambulance sucks, and we don't want anyone to come from "away" and have that experience. We start together, and we try to finish more or less at the same time. We take pictures. We stop for lunch. We eat in the evening. We sit by the fire and smile. We consume moderate quantities of adult beverage and tell stories about the kids. This is an old-folks boogie. Watch it, young'uns, old and evil will persevere.

Sunday's different. Many riders have developed relationships (regarding riding!) overnight, and others have to get home. For them as are remaining, there are many snotty and feisty routes that didn't make it into the Saturday ride because they were just too Charlie Manson psycho. We discover these during the pre-runs, which happen on the average every two weeks during the summer.

On Sunday, we ride the rough stuff following tracks. On the pre-rides, we often ride the same stuff with no idea where we will end up.

Thanks to Jackpiner57 and Guymanbro, I'm well on the way to developing the ultimate pre-runner. With hearty thanks to the NSA and those that are tapping your cell service, here's a stealth pic of the RedNEK 2T Ultra Legera:



It's just out of my shop from two days of wiring for street-legality. Next will be new springs and and a skid plate, as well as a high-output stator. Best trailie ever! Can you smell the castor oil? Yep, it's completely street - legal up here.

It's coming along nicely! I'm almost ready to exercise my buyback option. I'm thinking right after you balance that front wheel.
