One concern is the lack of facilities. I like at least an outhouse at the campground....

Me too and I'll be knocking on every hunting-fishing lodge I find while I'm up there this summer asking if they'll let a crowd of 60-80 camp on their grounds

If there was a commercial campground in the area I'd be booking it, but there isn't. I've being doing some research and will see what I can come up with

Worse comes to worse, one night of cowboy camping may be a realty. As for terrain, I have every intention of making the main route "doable", that being said the 400 km sandy road is the easiest way through as there is no slab anywhere near there.

Im in for 2012.

I like the way this years event played out from the ride reports. small groups all heading in the same direction but not waiting for the whole group.

I think the implausible distances covered by the 2011 Rally were OK because there were lots of easy ways to just skip out and take a shortcut/slab to the camping spot.

However, I think next year will be a must-do route. There will be no options to get to camp other than the route. I would also say that nobody should attempt this one without a reliable bike. No XL350's. And bring your Mission Critical spares. Clutch levers, shift levers, etc.

And GAS!!! you will need probably around 250kms worth or more just to be safe!
