I have a 4.3 gal on the XR but can carry some small back up.
Firewood is a great idea. I'll bring all I can, but you can never have too much. "Food Hauling"? My thoughts are; bring as much ice as you can just in case.

Territory? Saturday might be several hundred miles; about 90 to the longest fuel stop. Any range bike can have fun out here but might not do the entire Saturday ride with the main group without the range or license plate. I know some Husaberg guys who will stick to the "green-sticker" only part of the ride Saturday and we'll discuss that at camp so everyone's safe and accounted for.

As I've posted before though---" I've done every mile of this area over the past 7 years on a non-registered, NO-greensticker bike with no incidence" but cannot recommensd you do the same .

Cheers-
Tom

Holy crap-
We have guys showing up Thursday and possibly b4 noon Friday! I was shooting for 2pm Friday at the latest. My understanding is it's first-come, first served and it's $6/night. I'm thinking we need at least 6 or 8 sites by Saturday night but we'll see.

The first person there Friday should grab 6 sites for sure.

I'm in! I just got word of this ride from H8Chains...thanks Joel! I'll be trailering my black/white DR650 with my dark blue Jeep Wrangler out of Long Beach. I'm off Thursday and Friday but not sure exactly when I'll be leaving until I hear back from a friend of mine to see if he's going. If he can't make it I may leave Thursday night or Friday morning. Either way I'll help out with holding the camp sites. I'll place chairs and other crapola in the spots.

Thanks for putting this together mang!

-Rich

Tom, most likely I'll get there between 7 and 8 this Friday evening, white chevy 4x4 truck and red xr400.

Not sure about the food, is someone handling it?

Thanks,

Joel

Several hundred miles I cant even imagine that many miles on my 2 smoke bike. This is going to be a great way to break in the new top end. Thanks very much for putting this together. Ben

Optopilot and I are trying to cover breakfast burritos on Sat/Sun. Hopefully we'll have enough- depends on the turnout.

I'm grilling steaks over peach and applewood so my grill is fair game for anyone else who cares to use it.

See you guys Friday afternoon (2-ish).
Tom

Question I have an empty spot on my trailer...wanna carpool?

Well, Don can't make it so it looks like I'll be trailering my bike solo. Anyone from the southbay area want to put their bike on my trailer and carpool to the spot? We'll split the cost of gas of course. I'll be heading up the 605>10 (maybe 210)>15>to camp. Anyone who lives on the way qualifies as well.

I plan on leaving Friday morning by 9am. Any takers?

-Rich

Me please.


Has anyone heard from LMS? I have had no word from her as of yet... :( If you know how to reach her please ask her to check her private messages and give me a call on the phone number I left for her. If you know my number feel free to pass it on to her. I will be leaving friday morning with or without her, but I would feel horrible leaving without knowing if I am ditching her.
