I sent them to Scotty last night after riding most of it Saturday and making a few revisions. Scotty was off kayaking somewhere yesterday so if he made it back he should be posting it sometime today. You can see some of the scenery in the ride report I posted yesterday.

I have been reading the threads from last year and it looks like between the groups there should be more than enough tools and other light gear carried on each bike.

However, I have a tendency to over-pack things that I "might" need. I have the rear tube, a few tools, two spoons and a small compressor. Light food for lunch, water and the TP.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what is not worth strapping to the bike while on the trails ? Like a small folding chair for instance? (should that just be added to my bag in the sag wagon?)

Definitely shit can the folding chair. I think on this one all you need to carry are the essentials—tools, tubes, snacks, water, is all I will have—because they have the sag wagon to lug your camping gear. That's a real luxury.

I concur with scribe with addition of a rain suit (if you're a delicate flower like me).

Sag Wagon Courtesy:

Pack what you need. I got the firewood! Throw in a small folding chair and beverage of your choice for one night (we will be back to TCWR Saturday and can easily obtain beverages for Saturday night). Possibly consider combining drink coolers if yours is not full to top.

Sunday was perfect for floating/fishing the Kings River. Tanya and I ended up taking the canoe (easier fishing) while the youngin' and her beaux took the Kayaks. Now I aint a bragin' but i don't get skunked much, but you can bet the farm, I did yesterday! Must have been the perfect day distracting me!

Thanks
Scotty

1. No, the routes have not changed. They are solid if you got them Sunday night.

2. I should have a pretty accurate count for camping Thursday.

3. Arkansas Adventure Rider, next to pizza hut on hwy 62. Great guy, great gear. Yes, Larry is open and ready to serve you. Tell him Scotty sent you.

.gdb routes up and ready to go....

For those of you who requested .gdb routes they are up on the site at www.arkansas500.com. These are routes and will work as well as the .gpx. Remember, right click, then click on Save As. Open your softward then double click on the file. Easy, please I know you can do it. If not, call Garmin they answer their phone and have great tech support.

bring your cold weather gear

Scotty, you should have received my PayPal donation to Turpentine Creek on Monday.

check the Eureka Springs forecast for Thursday night - it's gonna be a bit nippley to camp Thursday and Friday and when we start out in the mornings but it should be great weather to ride during the day.

Team- For those of us running the Garmin 60 series along with City Navigator, you may already know we can't just dump the routes or tracks as Scotty and OLeary has them published. We have to tweak the files just a bit so that the routes have fewer than a grand total of 25 waypoints and via points.

When folks have E'd me routes or tracks in the past made on another flavor Garmin or other brand I've always had to go back and manipulate their routes or tracks in order to load them onto my 60CSX.

I'm splitting all three days into part A and part B...6 routes total so they'll work on my 60CSX with City Navigator loaded onto it.

PM me with your regular Email addy of you want me to forward you these drop-in routes once I get them finished.

Dirty

Looks like the weather has changed a bit. No rain expected but cooler than previously thought. Bring your warm woolies for Saturday night. Expected 35*.
