Spring Brake?

Spring Break ride in Orygun anyone? Last year was pretty fun. This year might be dryer, less snowish? I'm in for the right weekend!!!

I may or may not have two weeks off.... what type of riding is crooked river? think a sport tire would work on it? If not I might just have to ground out those last few miles before hand ;)

Hi Jay,
The spring break crooked river camp and ride is a happening thing but I can't be there do so I think Applejam (Jeff) had picked up the ball.

Zaeth, a knobbie might be a better choice here's the link to my photos from last year:

Great!

I won't have spring break myself...but I'll come out for some weekend fun like last year!

And I would expect it to be "warmer" than last year...but probably just as muddy!

I just depends on the day weather guessers are all over the place with lows down to 8 degrees and a couple days later a high of 63 degrees.
just for fun here's the Paulina ODOT trip cam:

Sounds like leaving the night of the 29th after work and setting camp. Meet at Jeff's place or mine if'n you don't remember where Jeff lives. Cause my place is so much easier to find. Strike out in the sunshine and warm weather to broken'bent'crooked river (whatever), set up camp have some ice cold beers and mountain house. Then when the sun goes down from a wonderfully beautiful warm sunny day, start a very small fire just to keep the bugs at bay. Relax and talk about how nice the weekend is gonna be and how we love spring and the constantly warming nights. How light it was at 6:37pm that day, then when full and drunk slip carefully into our perfectly comfortable 50 degree bag and snooze the night away.

YOU IN ZACH?

It will be like a frickin' dream man...................

Those pictures from last year looked like a fun adventure. In fact, count me in for this year if you have the room.

Anybody have the name/GPS coordinates for where you are planning on camping? May drive there (Truck Camper and Trailer), in which case I can bring some firewood.

Mountain House?????? Forget that
You'll be camping with the CHEF !!!!

a small fire????
This is a proper campground, with a proper campfire ring. So, only proper campfires are allowed
It just happens to be both empty and free until the end of March

Directly South of Prineville, down Hwy 27 (The Crooked River Hwy),
about 2/3 the way down from Prineville towards the West end & dam of the Prineville Reservoir.


View Larger Map

The BLM owns this Wild & Scenic 8-mile section of the Crooked River:
(it's a slow-loading PDF brochure, but worth it)

http://www.blm.gov/or/resources/recreation/files/brochures/new%20crooked.pdf

No dispersed camping through this stretch, but 11 nice camprounds total, are free through March 31st.
We picked Chimney Rock CG, at the very end of it at campsite #1.
It was a GREAT campspot, right by the river. A vault toilet is nearby, just accross the gravel parking lot.
Lots of room for plenty of bikes and a half-dozen or so pickups, even.

Vault Toilet?....who taught tyou how to camp? I could bring you that toilet seat and we could set it up over the sidecar of arsvivor's new Ural.

S1

PS: (actually I have a deep dark confession about that 'king toilet seat. You know I said it was a round one and I had you check that what you needed was a round one and not the oval one which is longer. We'll F' me....I am such a confused and sorry individual......it's not a round one....we use round one's at our house....it's a frigging oval one that I have. If you want or need an oval one it's all yours....I do still have it. It's still in the truck of the car....sorry for being such a thick idiot.....or we could just mount it to assrivors new Ural).

PS: Does this imply I want to come. Yes. Do I have permission yet. No. Am I working on it. Yes. I am now anyway (hello s1marks-wife who reads all my posts to see what trouble I'm getting into....I love you honey...might be a little late home...was thinking of dropping by the flowers shop on the way).
