I swore off caffeine in preparation for the rally, not during it. I probably had about one 5-hour energy a day throughout the rally, a diet coke here and there, and that was my first cup of coffee.

Southern Maryland Paintball

Newburg, Maryland 20664
(877) 391-5911

Players must be over 10 years old!
I've bought the groupon for 6 players. It buys the admission, safety gear rental, gun rentals for the first 6 peeps. You'll need to buy your your Co2 and paintballs (on site only).

I only intend to play to morning, as I suspect it will get hot. But you can stay as long as you'd like/welt.

After the first 6 spots are filled, others can join but I think it will cost you an additional +/- $40.

Sounds bueno.

GS Challenge

Better start boning up !

Once the top 12 guys were chosen, everyone had to ride one of three provided F800GS's.
Regardless of the bike you take, I would recommend the following:
1. Practice very tight, V-E-R-Y slow, 180 degree lock to lock turns on both pavement and dirt.
2. Get used to deep and loose gravel and sand.
3. Practice some single track, tight woods trails at slow speed.
4. Practice your steep uphill climbs and decents.
5. Become excellent at track stops. (completely stopping the bike for 1 to 2 seconds and resuming motion without putting your feet down or stalling)
6. Become very good at crawling the bike slowly along, in a straight line, at a snail's pace without stalling or touching the ground.
7. Prepare to have fun!

Is that my buddy Ross in the pipe? Anyone care to PM BC and get some more intel? Are we practicing at Eagle Bay or Blast Off this weekend?

It doesn't have to be dirt as street rides are completely acceptable.....maybe a Northern Neck ferry ride.

Tent Camping Suggestions in MD

Hello Everyone. I'm hoping to take a short motorcycle trip next month with my son (11 years old) before he goes back to school, and could use some suggestions of places to tent camp, preferably in Maryland. I'm not looking for a KOA type camp ground, but someplace where he can feel like he's roughing it a little. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
