BQF V, The Saga Continues

As the request of an unnamed inmate, new thread for the 2013 version of BQF (I've never actually been, but will this year).

Dates?

Location looks to still be (roughly) at the landing. Looks to still be pending reservations/space.

Heard it gets a little wet now and then

let the debauchery begin!!

I'd be in for thursday around noon, then fri, sat, sun. Ive got the DR650 that stands for Dirt Ready! last years route was great, but if needed, we could always do 2 groups, one more easy dirt roads , and then the other hard core blaze your own trail stuff and could meet for lunch breaks, etc.? As long as Im on 2 wheels, I'm good!

The old LC4 was a real sub. Curious to see how the new 500 does in the wet stuff.

Dibs on my water front camping spot.

Update

Went up there and reserved the spot but couldn't pay. She said we have 7 days to pay or set up something to get it paid.
Did not reserve Wed. but it is available if we want it. Still $50 a night so Thur-Fri-Sat $150, or $200 if we do Wed. too.

Not sure when I'll get the cash, but if anyone in the Jax area has it I'd gladly make the drive and pay for the site. Maybe add in a scouting run while I'm there.

Like she said we're penciled in but it's not ours till it's paid for

I can pony up, if we need to. I'll probably be in the Osceola area tomorrow around 10am. Can't ride, except for street as my trusty steed is in temporary winter hibernation.
