No requirement on riding. If I was without motorcycle, I'd probably bicycle down to Green Falls and go fishing for a while. Maybe Buzz can scoop you up somehow.

I tried it, it wasn't happening because of scale and whatnot. Unless all you want to see is the boots...

might be high time to do so. Maybe a cook-off is in order for the most creative use of the campfire sammich griller!

I just wanted to let everyone know that because part of the reason for this campout is to prepare for a trip this summer, I will be planning a route for Saturday and posting a GPX file in advance. Feel free to download it and load it into your GPS before the ride.

I also ask that if anyone has a road or trail they would like to ride, make me a GPX track file and email it to me. I would especially like people's suggestions for dirt roads in Rhode Island. I know CT pretty well, but could really use some help in Little Rhody. I'll take all suggestions, sort them out using what makes sense, and making one single route (track file actually).

Thanks, ill be PMing a couple of you personally to talk abiut it. All in all, I'd like to put together about a 150 mile route of mixed terrain. This route will be big bike friendly, but may be challenging in a few spots. KLR, KTM990, BMW1200 doable.

Again, please chip in with some suggested routes if you can.

I'm thinking of joining you for this little get-together. Kinda far for me, but I've got some rubber I need to burn off of the present set of tires before I can change to new ones for the BBA.. I'm changing my luggage setup a little too and this would be a good short test run. Besides, I've been wanting to see what this Pachaug area is like. Sounds like a fun, relaxed time. I'll plan on it as long as the weather cooperates (I know - what a wimp!)

Awesome! One condition, you have to bring a bottle of wine from the region. If you agree, I'll swap you a bottle of something that you can't buy there. If you're not a "wine guy", don't sweat it.

I've been out that way a few times, for the Watkins Glen NASCAR race. Really nice parks and scenery in that area. Don't let that video Bomber posted scare you off. He's only highlighting the diversity of riding the area here has to offer. (I was the guy that got up the hill first)

As said, I'm leaving the dirt bike at home for this one and won't be including the hero sections on MY ride - but there may be some locals camping with us that do that section. It's basically about 5 miles of baby head sized rocks in washed out stream beds. Yea, it just keeps going, you arms will hurt afterwards.

Don't worry about the weather. I know Spring is late, but it's starting here already. Flowers are starting to bloom here. The last traces of snow and ice are disappearing quickly. The area we're riding in is coastal and more temperate than upstate NY, I assure you. It's going to be a great weekend.

Well, I'm off to start crunching co-ordinates for you guys.

My wife works for Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards, so yeah, I'll bring you something local! Take a look at their website and let me know what you'd like. Schooner is highly recommended. www.hazlitt1852.comShe works at their "new" facility in Naples, called Red Cat Cellars, which is very close to where we live. I'll also bring along a pouch of Red Cat to share with the group...it's their hot tub party wine. I've got just the one bike, a Honda XR650L. I enjoy "givin' 'er" but she's just too heavy and tall for 5 miles of baby heads! I don't mind doing short sections though. Nice to hear the weather is so much milder there. I am looking forward to it.
