My dad just had his cancer surgery last night and he will be staying with us for a bit so we can care for him, I should still be able to join you guys though.
If you know where the site is ride over in the A.M. go for a ride. Stay at night as long as you wish. If you want food, bring something to throw on the fire.

I hope to be there mid day Friday at the latest. Depends on if I can get the day off. Worst case I leave after the Friday morning meeting.

FU - sounds good. I'll be there Thursday and I think Dragon is Thurs as well.

Sounds good on the spot. Think I'm gonna use the spot Gville had last year since I'll be there all weekend.

Otherwise everybody just show up when ya can.

I was up there with my truck all day and found quite a bit of dry trail. I was thinking some close runs Fri. and maybe a longer ride Sat. I've still never made it too the N.W. corner so may take a ride that way?

I've been real busy the last few days once I get a few mins I'll PM you guys with my #. That way if needed you can call in case we're ridin when people start showing up.

I will be there from Thursday around 3pm and want to ride Friday for sure.

I think I have a route or two from Matts run last year - both days were great. (Will check when I get home but working all day tomorrow, Sunday).

"GPS says it is only a third of a mile this way....how bad can it be?"

WTF were you thinking?

I don't think I have ever seen that pic. No way I would try to continue through that shit!

It looks like some molten lava.

It was not much fun!!! That third of a mile took about an hour!!!! It took about 20 mins to dig the f-er out....... rear wheel was good n stuck!

Food - I normally bring burgers n buns, enough to feed everyone one evening. Why don't we just bring whatever and share? Three day pot luck fest

Costs - last year we split site cost by day and then number of campers - i.e if there is three of us on thurs we will split the $50 / 3 etc

Did any of you guys head out there today? I was outside cleaning my bike and two BMW's cruised by in the direction of OP.

Count me in.
Been so preoccupied with school stuff that I almost missed it completely.

LMK if I need to call the BBQ guy. I don't know if our attendance #'s are high enough to make it cost effective yet though.
I still have all my roll charts from last year, and have made them a little better as well.

BigSingle - I'm shootin a PM your way.

BS - Matt passed on BBQ guy details
Adam Stringer with Fastway Foods, cell# 386-623-2137 store# 386-758-9882

Maybe we could place an order and collect? It was good stuff!

At this time i'd like to request that each one in attendance bring one of your favorite Natty Light products to donate to my cooler. I know its a large financial obligation i'm bestowing upon you however if the cooler gets filled enough I can store it away for a year to brew some fine celebratory libation for celebration of STFU-5.

Looks like it might not rain this go around and the temps won't be in the teens (like some places around SW minnesoda).

In & I believe FIL will be coming along too. We'll probably be there Thursday afternoon/evening.

Let's do some at the range Friday.
