I thought I read somewhere about gas availability but now I can't find it. For those of us on the A or B loops, will there be somewhere to get gas on Saturday during the ride?

Yes. Gas at 70 miles or 100 miles. A 100 mile range round be best, as the 70 mile gas stop requires a detour of several miles.

We will ask that folks only take what they need (a gallon?) so that we could avoid having to take the 100 gallon tank into town to refill. CDOT rules limit the amount of gas we can legally transport.

Last year, there wasn't anyway to meter the fuel at the stop, just a tank and a pump.

If that is the same this year, 2 stroke guys may want to carry a bottle to measure with. I'll probably just carry an extra liter in my pack.

Correct. No way to measure fuel.

However...... If you have a marked gas can, talk to GSL about tossing it in the truck.

Rally is joining the party! My friend that taught me everything I needed to know about fly-fishing is going to watch her. When I lived in Walden in the late 90's, he and I, and our dogs, fished almost every day. So, Rally the ADV-relay mutt will be in attendance!

I won't make this event, but just wanted to say I stopped at this exact spot (almost) for a photo last Saturday.
