BQF 7, Airbox Deep; February 6-7-8

So, I mucked this up last year. Keeping it simple, but hope to get some good riding in, find some deep water holes and consume tasty alcohol.

WHEN: February 6-7-8 (traditional weekend per ye olde folk)

WHERE: Ocean Pond Campground; http://www.forestcamping.com/dow/southern/osccmp.htm

RIDING: 650cc and under plated dual sports. No beasts. Usually just a slow burn through Osceola National Forest with fun being the objective. Probably stumble upon some water here and there. Will work on coming up with a route or seek local assistance. Mileage and what not is TBD and we'll likely deviate the route more than once.

REQUIREMENTS: None! Just show up, freeze your ass off, and make sure your airbox is sealed well.

What time do you think you'll hit the trails Saturday? I might be able to drive up early Sat and drink (I mean camp) one night.

We won't be in a rush, not least as there is only a few of us.
If you let us know what time you will be there we will wait.
Better still just arrive late Friday.
One of us will post up which pitch we are on - I am guessing we will aim to be where we have been in previous years but cannot recall the number. Can anyone remember ?
