I'll be riding in with my F650 fully loaded as if for a 1-2 week dual sport touring ride.. Assuming I get the bike back together in time. I put the freshly serviced rear shock back in tonight and installed a new to me swing arm (mine got a little damage on the 2012 Roaming Rally) and I ordered a few more parts today.. Ordering some more stuff tonight..

We could do a big bike challenging ride through most of the southern half of the enduro loop. I've ridden 90% of it with my F650 but usually without luggage.. Except that one time Redbeard talked me into it!

I have a new favorite campfire food cooking system for the car-camp-n-rides that I may haul in for this one as well. Pie Irons!



from grilled cheese to apple pies.. soo good and easy! I'm still looking into dutch oven cooking as well... Especially for baking.. I'm looking forward to the first CNR of the season..

I know of at least one deep stream crossing you could try.. There are plenty of good rutted out mud puddles or the infamous "Green Falls water crossing" as well [search youtube for Green Falls Pachaug].. The difference in Pachaug is that what's under the water is usually deep ruts in mud or just good sized rocks all over the place while at the Roaming Rally you'll hopefully be dealing with an underwater surface that is more consistent, even if it's a hydroline trail where the water crossings were "corduroy'zed" trails. That's when they lay down a bunch of logs in the water perpendicular to the direction of the trail.. like this but under 1-2 feet of murky water..



Up there it's essentially to give the power company's big 4wd vehicles a decent base to work with when traversing the wet areas.. In those scenarios stay as close to the center of the perceived trail as you can and keep a finger on the kill switch...

Yea, seeing how I'm on a big bike now, I'm going to have to think about the Route for this ride. I'll try to put something together as interesting as possible. It'll be good, but I have no idea what it'll be yet.

I was thinking freshly found crawfish, left over hash browns and sausage pie. I have a set of those tins around. They make a good sandwich, but don't always make the trip. I like the campfire garlic bread.

I have been telling people to buy these in my disaster prep for home owners course for years. With no power and no means of cooking anybody can find a place to make a campfire in their yard. These and some bread and pretty much anything that is left in the pantry and you have a meal.

Try olive oil instead of butter, bread, corned beef hash with an egg broken over it then the other slice of bread. Best breakfast sandwich ever

We usually get in some riding Sunday morning as well. We've even done a night ride or two, but people are usually more interested in relaxing with a few cold1s areound the fire at that point.

One man's crawfish is another man's crayfish... and yet another man's crawdad...
(also known as a "poor man's lobstah")

...food for thought
