length

Is there an approx distance for the dual sport? Thinking of doing it this year to try out the roads less traveled. Not sure if I should put the bigger tank on my EXC for it though.

when i did it last year, i put 160 miles on my bike. it was one lap of the poke run, one lap of the DS "A" loop and one lap of the DS "B" loop. I think the poker run was 25-30 miles, but i could be wrong. the loops are, or at least were, designed to put you back at camp after each lap.

Is the poker run/DS route usually off-road ( as in across the desert ) or just dirt roads like farming roads?

A combination of ranchland and then highway to other offroad areas. some sections might be described as dirt road, some pavement connecting sites, but most of the miles were on trails over ranchland or equivalent.

I am planning to head over for the Poker run from Woodinville-Monroe area.

One tip, be sure to have your act together and get an early start. A late start may mean not getting in the lunch stop or the latter sections of the DS run. Section of courses do close at a certain time. Your trip time depends on the number of rest stops, mishaps, site seeing the carnage, or the speed of the group you are running with.

Departing from Woodinville-Monroe area for the Saturday ride. 1 open bike slot on the trailer towed by a 4dr jeep.

Edit: Will leave Friday night and tent it or sleep in the jeep (less work). Will return most likely Sunday morning but maybe Saturday night. TBD. Also headed out for the Fringe Poker Run this Friday or Sat AM 0 dark 30, also 1 open spot on the trailer. This edit gets the right event logistics straight :-).

This might be a stupid question but where is the camping area and race HQ? I've been all over Stumpjumpers' website and it only says Odessa.

It's near Odessa but not in Odessa. Is it north, south, east, or west of town? Highway 28? Highway 21? Cemetary Rd? Duck Lake Rd? King Ranch Rd? Hopp Rd? Lakeview Ranch Rd?

Thinking of riding the DR from Ellensburg and then doing the dual sport ride on Saturday, watching Sunday. Is this a bad idea?

It's a bad plan. You should do the race on Sunday instead of watching. . What could possibly go wrong?

Ha Ha Ya i've heard some war stories from previous years that make it a bad idea to think you will ride your bike home after you have finished the race.
This truly is my first year attending and everyone has bailed in my group so I decided to roll solo to the D100. Im experienced as a rider but just don't want to really have to give it a go alone for the first one and find out i am as bad as everyone tells me I am. Any thoughts?
