The DR works fine for this stuff. If it will keep up with traffic it will keep up on a group ride.

For hauling gear, that takes some prep. For cold, there's the campfire, and then you need at least a 30deg sleeping bag and pad. I'm going to bring an extra down bag to throw over, will be toasty in my slumber.

We have a beautiful weekend weather forecast and a nice bunch of riders with a common interest.

hang out with M1jeep, and you'll find the answer. he loaded his bags with stuff...., and plus camping gear of course. maybe too late now to get the proper set up.



i remember last year, mooseboy rode his xr400 all 400 miles or so.....

It looks like about a 10 mile round trip, lots of river crossings. Nice to set up camp in the light, but Pozo Saloon likes to close early too...


Does Pozo know we're coming, late?

we don't have to camp at hi mountain (farther and takes time), instead camp at la panza (we will pass this on our way to the saloon).set up tent and ride to pozo saloon. another nice place to camp is at navajo campground (near the indian property).

we will have 3 groups of riders.

suggestion #1.

the 1st group to arrive at pozo, secure the campsite and restaurant seats.

the leading group order the food for everyone. we have to get a menu. the slower group when they arrive, food is almost ready to serve. i have the feeling the soda lake riders (not the elkhorn group will get there first).

suggestion #2.

eating breakfast at ojai is a tradition. it may take an hour, but we can't pass that up. to speed things up, i called the restaurant and they can prepare the food early saturday morning as long we pre-order. i will post up a link here of their menu.


suggestion #3

this is not a race. we're all here to enjoy the ride and the camaraderie. foremost, get to our destination safely. if we get skunk, that's part of the adventure. whenever joining a group ride, we have to give up some of our personal needs and become more tolerant of set backs. the positive....we made good friends and turned into a good community.


EVERYONE...this ride is at least 400 miles, so please make sure your bike is in good mechanical condition. check, check and check. a breakdown will slow us down. bring tools and spare parts. if you show up with a worn out sprocket and the chain keeps on slipping off or engine blew up for lack of oil, i will politely ask you to go home or call the tow company...

if your bike breaks down for reason beyond your control, or had a flat, the rest of the group should not get hanged up. 2 or 3 person should stay with you and the rest continues on.

I called the Pozo Saloon and got an automated message saying "voice mail box is full."

I went on their fb page and gave them a heads up that we have ~30 hungry and thirsty riders coming Saturday and camping nearby.

If not Hi Mountain then maybe KCLor Selby? I'll probably be at either of those on Fri night and meet you ff's at Maricopa at 1:00.

BLM site says groups >20 must obtain authorization from "Ryan Cooper at 661-391-6048 for authorization or information"

We also need the campfire permit.

I'll call and give him (Ryan) a heads up.
