GPX file works with Topo 8.0 so I guess it is good. PM if you want me to email it to you. I will work on some coastal stuff next.

Is this ride always the last weekend in October?

Was wondering about in the future making it the last weekend before deer season...at least it would make the decision of what bike to bring a lot more confusing..,

Mike started it as a Halloween thing I think..

so what are your choice's for the street these days..Vespa or Berg? At least you don't need help picking either of those up at a gas stop)

No matter how you do it, you're gonna make somebody unhappy. Archery starts in Sept. Probably less likely to get shot at by a bowhunter but still gonna be pissing them off.

Plus, it's not like there's any shortage of good riding in the area , just not on trails. The riding is certainly a big part of the good times but there seems to be an even bigger focus on the people than at most of the other get togethers that I've been to. I mean, after all, you have to be more than a little nuts to want to ride 5 or 6 hours just to go freeze your ass off in a campground on the coast of Maine that late in the season (and possibly have to ride home in a snow storm). Plus, remember, it's Farm Rules, you can pretty much do your own thing where ever you want.

You're a funny guy!

That's why I put a bigger tank on the 'berg - half as many chances of dropping it...

No I was offering a bike. Just in case he does not want to rode the dirt bike all they way up from north boston.

Now if he shows up to an ADV event on a Vespa, I will bow in the presence of his wicked awesomeness!

Sounds like a challenge...probably similar distance to Hurricane Mountain Road, but I didn't have camping gear with me that night.

But caging it to your house, borrowing a bike for the big trek to the campground could be fun, too. Care to share that new GS??? Because no way am I riding on the back with you.

My wife will be joining us for dinner at Buck's but she does not camp when it gets below 55 at night...

I just realized you probably mean a kitchenpass not that she is joining you
