Just had a chance to chat with a fellow ADV-er, and we were wondering about campgrounds with the shutdown. I'm guessing anything federal is closed? We are still able to work our federal timber sales as of this minute, but sounds like they will stop at any time.

Anybody know for sure?

And they are probably wasting money going out and putting up barricades at places that cost nothing to be open.

The Forest Service called us (MTRA) today to tell us that they will not be there to support our woods poker run on Sunday. This really breaks our heart. Their only support was harassing our riders. So you guys out riding in the forest this weekend, be careful as there are no rangers out there to support you.

I could be in too, I have an 8 am soccer game, but start out of Fenton, I could fly down 30 west to meet you. What time are you leaving?

Would love to hit some Mark Twain back roads, sounds like a few more might be open with the shutdown.

Is it supposed to rain? Sunday looks rain free is that better for anyone?

Yaa.. Saturday is still saying 60% chance of rains... I think some decisions tomorrow eve to make the game call.

Weather guesser tonight says the rains come from the North, clearing more soon to the north with lingering rains more thru the day of course due south.

Sunday looks great but I know John, ( Doiniton2 ) has some deer stand plans but haven't reached him tonight yet.

We had planned at meeting at 8:30 am St. Clair Mo for Saturday. Those Mark Twain NF flight plans always sound good :)

So........... I will post up more info as we get into Friday and will consider still some Sunday options..

Pmdore, got your voicemail, sorry about the battery, that sucked. I didn't think to look at my cell phone until Wednesday night, If this weekend ride happens I could meet down in Fenton and boogie out from there(?) , I will need to follow, my gps is acting stupid for me, can't load any gpx files..

Sunday better

I'll check my calendar, I think sunday looks better as long as I am back by 4:40 for practice. (I need to quit coaching so I can ride more).

I have just never riden much in the rain, and I have 60-40 on road to off at best, so probably would strugle with slick stuff.

I will try to make some fire road routes coming off of DD, or P or something as clost to St. Clair as I can, unless you guys already have some?

I'll get back at you, thanks for being willing to let me join.

Now that's funny.......The FS sure has a deluded opinion of their value to m/c riders........

Since John and I are newbies at making our own adventure routes don't trust us to get you home on time!

We have been great followers with others gps tracks and that even was in question at the PHBR .... Then again, Anthony laid the egg there.

So.. Heres the updates for us but can't yet give anyone 100%:

Saturday Exploring: Still some rains / storms potentials / will check more this evening.

Sunday Exploring: Better weather.. under discussions

Rain for sat looks like late afternoon

Channel 5 is calling for late afternoon (5 ish rains) on Saturday now. I would like to get out early Saturday morning, and be back home before the rains hit, leaving Sunday open for a road ride. Good news about the rangers not 'supporting' us this weekend, I'm heartbroken.

I'm in St Charles, could start of anywhere (south has better stuff), would rather do more off road oriented rather than just gravel. Got really spoiled on the 950 in Colorado in August.

Mark Twain NF sounds good to me.
