Sorry it's a little cryptic. I have friends in town from up north who are leaving Sunday, I'm just not sure what time. That's why I can't be more specific on the time.

If the group picks an earlier time then I can be there, I will find you guys out there. That's all I know right now.

I am coordinating volunteers for the sandblast rally this year and would love to see some of the WARDS there. Rally is Saturday March 1 and we have camping available at the rally. This year we have former Dakar racers on the entry list. Volunteering is the best way to see the rally.

Hey Matt! Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to the rally again. I had a great time last year. I'll be riding down there again this year.

Also, if anyone is interested, it looks like we will be headed to E-town to ride tomorrow.

Have any of you guys raced the Sand Blast on a motorcycle? Thought about maybe entering it. Can anyone race?

Anyone can race. You need a nasa membership and license. There is a mandatory novice training session at the event Friday. It's a lot of sand but fun if you like sand. I have raced in a car a few times and ridden it recreationally on a bike.

Or volunteer with dan and I
http://sandblastrally.linaracing.com...volunteers.php

Also this is happening Thursday. Racer training.

Sandblast is less then 2 weeks away. Anyone in the area going? I'm leaving Friday Feb 28th around 4pm if anyone wants to meet up and ride down together.

That dude with the Ural is nowhere near as ugly as Dan. ;)

35xj, I was there and hanging out with the Ural dude, but wasn't me. Not knowing what you're into, its hard to say what you might like seeing. If you guys like history there is plenty to see and do. If you like decent beer you might enjoy Front St Brewery in downtown Wilmington. You can ride the ferry from Fort Fisher to Southport, that's always fun a makes for some nice photo ops.

If you need a place to stay I can probably help you out. Let me know.

Im on my 950ADV, kat will be on her Husky 630 motard, so some back road exploring, maybe a little gravel.

If you are staying in Carolina Beach, you should check out a bar called "Fat Pelican". Very unique atmosphere and probably the best microbrew selection on the island. In downtown Wilmington there is a beer bar called "Cape Fear Wine & Beer" that has the best micro selection in this part of the state.

Last I checked, Holly Shelter game lands still have the gates open. This would be a good option for a little off pavement action. Some areas in there can be either very wet, or very sandy depending on the weather, but the main drags in there should be passible even on road tires. Not for from Holly Shelter is a Road called "Old Maple Hill" and it's about the best thing in the area will will find as far as twisties go. Being from Ashville though, you will likely find it very tame. Mostly though, the roads in this area and strait with little to no elivation change. Not a riding paradise to be sure.

There is some decent hiking in Carolina Beach State Park. If you take the ferry over to Southport from Ft Fisher then take 133 north, you will find Brunswick Nature Park. There is some really nice multi-use trails in ther for hiking and cycling as well. There are a few dirt roads in there as well, but they don't go very far.

If you make over to Southport (its a nice ferry trip from Ft Fisher/Carolina Beach). LocoJoes is worth checking out. Great food and the best microbrew selection in Brunswick County.
