I spent a week rambling Colorado last July. Saw all those jeep trails and FS roads all the heck over. I really enjoyed The San Juans (my first visit down there). Decided I need to go back and explore some more. I just bought a tiny DS bike. Count me IN for this gathering. Hope to drink beers and learn from some more experienced dirt riders.

SteveO gets the credit for this idea........What does everyone think?

We have three different route combinations: light bike, Medium weight and Heavy weight. For each route there are a series of GPS/Map coordinates.

The riders that find those locations on their bikes will open up a canister and retrieve a raffle ticket. Maybe there are half a dozen caches......6 tickets possible.

Upon returning to the basecamp, your submit your tickets for a very special drawing......like maybe Klim equipment, etc....

This sounds frickin fun to me......

Opinions????

Let's see... you have light bike, middle weight and heavy weight - how about lightweight?

Sounds like a good time. Suggest you have route sheet or another way to participate for those without a GPS.

+1 to that for those of us who are GPS challenged.

Sounds like I'm winning Klim gear this time...

We have three different route combinations: light bike, Medium weight and Heavy weight. Sorry, no lightweights for this one...see below. For each route there are a series of Petroglyphs providing directions.

The riders that find those locations on their bikes will open up a canister and retrieve a shot of tequila and a beer. Maybe there are half a dozen caches......12 drinks possible.

If you make it back to basecamp, you win the admiration of your fellow ADVers......and maybe Klim equipment and a night cuddling with BigDaddy, etc....

This sounds frickin wrong to me......

Opinions????

Here is another spin on this game.

Three canister at each drop location. Each canister is locked but only one canister has a ticket in it. Bring it back to camp and at night we unlock the canisters and find out who wins what., or wins nothing at all. Only one canister per rider, imagine the debating on which to take even if they ride out with a few friends....LOL There might be punches thrown

Oh it wasnt so bad was it? As the song sez, "ya find out who your friends are". Shy of the truck wreck which Im thankful turned out as good as it did for you.... You found friends that towed ya, hauled ya, tried to fix your bike, loaned ya a bike, drank beer with ya ..............

With my limited circle of friends it looks pretty good to me!!

Besides that now ya got a Noob scaring story....."Listen Noob!! There I was, on top of ole Cinnimon... A storm coming, lighting flashing everywhere, When the group I was with all got scared and took off, I was ready to mount my Ole Honda when Light'n struck it and killed the plug wire. There I was on top of the mountain trying to fix my bike, In the middle of a battle between Zeus and Thor..... It looked pretty bad ...... Then AG pulled up her big girl panties and rode back up the mountain saying the Zeus and Thor would never hurt a KTM as they are family and towed me back down the mountain, I was doing 82 MPH dead stick on a piece of 15# fishing line at the switch back above Animas forks!!!!! ......... You take it from there!!!!!
