I am somewhat ambivalent at this point. I DO sway towards keeping it at MRA for all the reasons previously noted. AND, it's the BIG NUMBER 10 (!!!) so's I'd like to hold onto the tradition for one more year (which is why I voted yes).

OTOH, I do see Gilla's point. BTDT.... a lot of times. Gettin' a bit stale. What keeps me going down there is seeing all the folks/friends I rarely get to see otherwise. As far as the motorhome, trailer crowd, I couldn't care less one way or another as long as you show. Some come for the hard core trails (dirt bikes) and some of us are gettin' older and like our comfort. I will still be tenting and riding down but appreciate all the beer/equipment hauling that occurs with all our truckin' friends. And a hot shower is much, much appreciated after a few days....as well as a nice crapper.....

We have been riding that area for 9 years. Time to change it up.

I don't have interest in organizing the same thing we have been doing for 9 years unless all other options have been exhausted.


Yes, I am throwing this
All fine and good but what you want to do isn't WARPED. With your absence when you were anointed with the task of running it makes it hard to gauge the interest in moving it. Mater o fact, you missed the last TWO years.
Your comment "The intent will be, at least for WARPED X, will be to shift back towards ADVENTURE riding. i.e. load up your bike, ride somewhere, set up camp, ride around for the weekend, have a good time." When was Warped anything but what it is? Back to? It never was!

So I raise your Gauntlet and see you... You have until mid November to find a place that has the trails and amenities, along with the somewhat central location for both the nor and socal folks. Until then we'll see where the majority want to go. If you find a place we'll revisit the poll.

This isn't Fall Colors where nobody knows where it's going to be and it's supposed to happen THIS MONTH. This is about ~100 folks making plans for a vacation day or two and PLANNING rides.

And last, you really need to get over the trailer RV thing. The RV at Warped 8 provided much needed coffee ALL day. It and some others who trailer hauled the EZ-ups that kept folks dry. Those same vehicles have hauled the KEGS of beer to the event as well as gone after MORE beer when we ran out. Not all of us drink old crumpledick. They have also provided LOTS of firewood.

Let the poll continue.

What are we, lemmings?

I've been to all of them and to be frank, I think a new venue deserves serious consideration.
I'd like some new scenery and so forth.

I mean, it's not like we are married to MRA is it?

Edit: I like the site, I like the riding, I like the local restaurants and stores, but I would also like to see if there are other campgrounds that offer a different blend of the same amenities. I mean, there's only so many roads and trails to explore there and on the way to and from...

Like I said, if someone comes up with a new venue that gives us what MRA does . . .

Gotcha. I edited my post.

I didn't think we were going to move it to the Fresno Walmart parking lot.

keep it in Kernville.
great area.
great for both the pussies that truck in their small bikes to ride black diamond singletrack trails and great for the hardcore riders that ride the grueling pavement in on their 1200cc espresso machines.

MRA has been great! we've even used it for our own rides.

but there's other camping in the area...
this past weekend we stayed at the KOA in Weldon south of the "lake". ice cream social and pancake breakfast. it was a nice campground with cool cabins.

or there's Cedar Creek Campground up by Alta Sierra Ski Area off Hwy 155 above Wofford Heights http://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/sequo...79673&actid=29
that's an adventure up there!!!

ooooh, perfect venue (at least in SOME ways) was Songdog Ranch. too bad it closed :(

(the genesis of WARPED Trip was a april campout held at Song Dog a couple months before it was closed... I think we called this the Song Dog Howl... I originally was setting this up, but then couldn't attend so passed the buck to Mully to run).

It isn't that I wouldn't go if it was moved, but I must say the convenient amenities, catered meal in the covered area, the little amphitheater area, brewpub right down the street, multiple fire pits, camp spots close enough for inmates to carry you back to when stumble drunk-that's some pretty good shit!

Yo CA Stu, dump cesspool of a thread into jomomma where we can get real and be completely honest.


If Funk started this thread that would be one thing, but THIS BULLSHIT IS ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT!

You can be honest here Treadless. What's bullshit about it?

I like this, the first Warped events were almost all ride in, now the whimpy bikes or riders can't seem to get there on their bikes, but its going to be hard to find a place to ride and camp without truck and RV access, or just ban non ride in campers
