Yay!
Had a great time doing this ride the past 2 years.
But most of all, I'm glad to read that Vince is still "To be cont'd..."

For the NYCFF's and everyone else riding (or trailering) in ... should we try to take over part of Prospect Mountain Campgrounds again? It would be great to have a central camping spot again this year.

It seems like the best spot to have the most people in one general area. I'll see if the cabins are available again.

It's OK to come if you hate the Mets and don't say a word about the Giants.

Kidding aside, have you been to our event before? It's a great ride and we have a lot of fun Saturday night camping out too!

I haven't been to the event before, I've spent the last decade riding asphalt tracks and recently a few guys I ride with got in to the adv riding, so I gave it a try and it captured me. So although I plan to keep riding the track, I plan to explore as much of this awesome country as my time (and wife) will allow.

Big fan of camping out...not a big fan of the Mets ....or the Giants

This year, instead of numerical grades, I described the conditions. I think it's gonna be pretty clear which one is insane, which is mild, and what's in the middle! (The insane one is the one where it took 3 hours to get Madrivermaz out of the woods, on a six mile segment, and he was on a 650!)

I just reserved campsite #8 for my toyhauler ... I am assuming you all will be in the cabins right behind there.

PARTY!!!

I did this ride 2 years ago on a xr650. I moved up the food chain to a 990. What are those #5's gonna look like? I got it knob'd up and ready to go!

I will be there.
